Nails on Fire – The Hunger Games, China Glaze Capitol Colours Collection

Check me out! Okay, well not me, but here is my quick take on the Katniss Everdeen ‘pre-games interview style’ nail design.

Pardon the glitter and such left on my hands. Now I only did my thumb, as I thought doing every nail this intense, may be a bit much on a Tuesday – though I may do the remaining nails next week or so prior to seeing the movie! I used 5 different nail polishes, 3 of which were part of the China Glaze Capitol Colours Collection for The Hunger Games.

Products Used:

Base coat: Essie “All in One Base” coat

Base Color: China Glaze Capitol Colours “Stone Cold” (swatch below – it’s a MATTE polish which gave the flames a great background!)

Deep Blue/Black Flames: China Glaze Capitol Colours “Smoke and Ashes” (swatch below)

Orange Flames: Sinful Colors Nail Art in “Sunset”

Gold Flames: Sinful Colors Nail Art in “Flower Girl”

Glitter Accents: China Glaze Capitol Colours “Electrify” (swatch below)

Look what I got in the mail today:

So I ended up buying 8 of the 12 colors available in the China Glaze Capitol Colours collection for The Hunger Games. I purchased all of mine from Sally Beauty Supply, 2 in store and 6 online.  All polished were 5.99 (a bit cheaper than quite a few other stores who have clearly marked up the price – I saw 1 store selling them for 8.99 each!) , plus I had good coupons. It only took 2 days for me to receive the online purchased polishes, as they were shipped within Texas.

See the swatches below, as well as the full collection here:

Swatch would not show up well, it is clear with silver-blue-violet flakes of glitter (glitter consistency looks a bit like gold/silver leaf)
