Anyway, to celebrate, I have swatches of 2 of the polishes from China Glaze's Colours from the Capitol (or Capitol Colors)! Here are Dress Me Up and Luxe and Lush.
please excuse the boo-boo on my ring finger
Dress Me Up is a dusty brownish rose creme polish. I hadn't originally thought to get this one. But after seeing swatches, I thought it looked pretty. Though nothing too special, it's still a nice nude color and perfect for work! This color is meant to represent District 8 from The Hunger Games, which specializes in textiles. The formula was great on this one, and it applied really well! This is two coats.
And then I decided to try adding Luxe and Lush, to try and jazz it up!
Luxe and Lush, as you can see, is a flakie. White iridescent flakes that flashes orange, green, blue, pink, you name it...the color depends on the polish underneath. This was one of the ones I was excited about when I first heard that a Hunger Games collection was coming out. But when I saw swatches, I was underwhelmed. I decided to get it anyway, after seeing a pretty good swatch somewhere (can't remember now). Though I love flakies, I'm not as much in love with this one. I still like it, but it's more work. This is one coat, but I had to maneuver the flakies to get a good scattering of them. I think it looks nice with Dress Me Up, though. This polish is supposed to represent District 1, which specializes in Luxury.
I have 3 more polishes from this collection, so hopefully I'll get to swatch them all this weekend, and post one every day in celebration of opening weekend. :] But for now, I leave you with this:
HAPPY HUNGER GAMES!
