L to R: Dress Me Up, Stone Cold, Fast Track, Electrify

I rarely get excited about polish collections, but I have really been looking forward to the Capitol Colours Hunger Games collection from China Glaze. I was the first person to come looking for these polishes at my parent’s Sally Beauty in Louisiana. I had to unbox them myself!

I am so happy with the colors I picked. Dress Me Up seemed plain to me at first, but it will probably become one of my most-worn polishes because its such a pretty, classic color. Fast Track surprised me, too. It does take three coats for good coverage, but it’s worth it. Very subtle, but gorgeous. And Stone Cold? Don’t even get me started. One coat! Too good to be true.. but not.

Dress Me Up (District 8 – Textiles) – Dress me Up is a creamy mauve shade. I had no problems with the application, and I used two coats. This is an unexpected favorite.

Stone Cold (District 2 – Masonry) – Stone Cold is a matte black with silver micro-shimmer. It applies like a dream. Normally I’m an absolute mess with dark polishes, but this wasn’t runny and thick at all. I only used one coat. I know, RIGHT? Incredible.

Fast Track (District 6 – Transportation) – Fast track is a nude-beige with gold micro-shimmer. This is slightly runny and not very opaque, so I recommend applying three very thin coats to avoid running. Otherwise, it is a beautiful color. Even though it has gold shimmer, the color is such a beautiful neutral that I think this is still wearable in a professional setting. In these photos I only used two coats, and you can still slightly see the whites of my nails. Even though it takes three coats, I’m in love.

Electrify (District 5 – Power) – Electrify is a mix of red and gold glitter. It applies very evenly and requires 3 or 4 coats for an opaque coat.

    I agree that Electrify is perfect for FSU games but for my every day life, I’d prefer Agro or Harvest Moon – those look like really cool shades. Not terribly summer-y but still, love them.
