China Glaze Colours From The Capitol/Hunger Games Collection Preview

Did anyone see this yet? Ha-Ha! I'm sure you have, because everyone's been posting it, but it deserves the recognition! China Glaze is one of my favorite brands because time and time again, they're consistent without being predictable. I can always count on them to develop collections that offer a nice range of beautiful and unique shades. Tie that in with an awesome theme like The Hunger Games, and it's no wonder this collection is causing such excitement.

Below is the official color swatch card from China Glaze, who says "This collection of 12 new nail polish shades is inspired exclusively by one distinct setting in The Hunger Games - the Capitol of the nation of Panem. Awash in lavish fashion, food, and entertainment, Capitol citizens enjoy extreme cosmetics and body modifications, bold wigs, and outlandish costumes."

I'm very excited that this collection is definitely going to happen now, because when the news broke that China Glaze and Lionsgate were at odds about the whole deal, I was really disappointed. Now that it's "official", I can't wait until these come out March 1, 2012.

Are you a fan of these shades? I can't even begin to pick a favorite, because the majority of them look gorgeous and unlike so many other colors out there in the market. Actual swatches may dispel that thought, but I'd probably but them regardless, simply because they're associated with The Hunger Games! Have you read The Hunger Games and the sequels? I have read the first two, and when I get done reading the book I'm just finishing up, I'm going to download Mockingjay on my Kindle.

The Hunger Games movie comes out on March 23, 2012, and there is a sequel to that movie that's due to be released November 22, 2013. I'm hoping that China Glaze releases another collection to go along with that sequel!


  1. I love all of these shades almost as much as I love the books! I'm on my 2nd round of reading them! Thanks for sharing this!

  2. I'm glad they finally reached an agreement (shades seem so pretty)! Here in Italy this trilogy is not famous yet, I first heard about it on nailblogs :-) but it seemed quite interesting and as just yesterday I received my Kindle (so happy about it) I immediately downloaded The Hunger Games and now I'm at chapter 6. Can't wait to go on (it's really intriguing)!

  3. Smokes and Ashes
    Luxe and Lush
    Glad this collection is happening :D

  4. I'm looking forward to seeing these. Agro & Electrify look like polishes I want to buy. I haven't read the books. I've seen the movies & enjoyed them. The books are always so much better than the movies.

  5. I can't pick a fav, I want them all :) I'm on the 3rd book and can't wait for the movie.
