Rococo Nail Apparel: Stone Cold Karma

April 29, 2010
Rococo Nail Apparel has released a few new shades for spring and Stone Cold Karma caught my eye from SpaceNK. I ordered this online along with a few other shades (will be featured soon). Stone Cold Karma is a grey-mauve cream with a subtle pearl finish that you can only see when you look closely. This is an odd shade because sometimes it looks mauve, sometimes it looks more grey depending on the lighting which you’ll be able to see in the photo swatches below. In this way it reminds me of Chanel Particuliere – it looks brown in the bottle, but on the toes, sometimes it pulls more mauve, sometimes straight grey, sometimes a mushroom brown. Perhaps my eyes are just playing tricks on me.

Pedicure: Chanel Particuliere

Rococo Nail Apparel Stone Cold Karma compared to:
Rescue Beauty Lounge Grunge
OPI Tickle My Francey
Chanel Particuliere

I had 3 coats applied to get full coverage. It’s lovely, but I think I’m just not really used to greys on my fingers. It’s in the same color family as RBL Grunge and OPI Tickle My Francey. In the bottles, they look really similar, but as you can see in the swatches, they are very different once applied on the nails. Compared to RBL Grunge, Rococo Stone Cold Karma’s sparkles are more visible giving it more depth so it’s not so flat-looking.

Rococo Nail Apparel Nail Polishes retail for $16 each. I found the line at SpaceNK.

  • OOh that's pretty. I think there's a Space NK counter in Bloomingdale's here in SF. I may have to see if they carry it there. I also want that RBL Grunge color. Do you have Stormy? I'm curious about that one, too!

  • OMG. LOVE Stone Cold Karma. It's what I wanted You Don't Know Jacques and Particulare to be because it's more wearable. Mmmm…need to make a trip!:)

  • They all look beautiful on your hand.

    Grunge gave me "corpse hands", so I'm leery. And I'd almost talked myself out of Stone Cold Karma, and then I saw how beautiful it looks on your hand.

    But, even with the sparkles, it looks *darker* than Grunge. So IDK.

    I probably need to just buy the Tickle My Francey and be done with it …

  • I bought Stone cold karma because of your post. So yesterday I paint Chanel Particuliere in my feet and Stone cold karma in my hands, it is so lovely!!!!!

    BTW, I LOVE Grunge too from RBL…we DO have similar tastes.
