China Glaze - The Hunger Games Collection

I have been utterly obsessed with the Hunger Games, yes, I know, I`m far too old for it but you know, there was just something about this series that appealed to me much more than Twilight - btw, not a twilight fan. so anyways, I`ve got all three books in my nook and I am uber excited about the movie coming out this weekend, although I won`t be able to see it on opening night, I`m taking my oldest on Sat - she`s a big fan as well.

China Glaze launched a Hunger Games collection which consists of 12 shades. I was lucky enough to find all 12 at my local Sally`s AND to make it even sweeter, they were on sale for $4.99 each - how could I pass this up right? I ended up picking up 8 shades because I wasn`t too crazy over the remaining ones (riveting, dress me up, foie gras, mahogany magic). I am beyond excited and have already found my favorite shades, they`re stunning really and I can not remember the last time I picked up so many polishes at once from one single collection. here`s what I got:

smoke and ahses : my most favorite one of them all, it has a dark base - possibly black, with green & blue glitters running through it, very opaque as this is one coat. stunning in real life but extremely hard to photograph.

luxe and lush: clear base with blue/green irridecent flecks. this will go amazing over so many shades, I`m pretty sure I don`t have anything in my collection quite like this one.

electrify: clear base loaded, and I mean loaded with red and golden glitter, I think two to three coats of this and you`ll have a pretty good cover but should go nicely on top of lots of shades. this is a total Katniss shade as it resembles fire !

harvest moon: a pretty orangey copper polish. it does seem to have a little golden super fine glitter/sheen going through it, I imagine electrify will looks super hot over it, again, total Katniss

agro : my next favorite. man this is one gorgeous green shade !! as you can see it also has a little gold going through it like harvest moon, extremely opaque, can you believe that`s just one coat? I never thought I`d like a green polish this much

fast track: yeah, this one is up there with the other two faves. it`s a pretty nude base, a little like Julep`s Whitney actually, with gold going through it. the pictures do no do it justice because it`s truly beautiful, it`s more than a simple nude, it`s got a little umph to it

hook and line : how to describe this shade? hmmm .... it`s like a pearly light gray, silver, platinum .... yeah, ok, let`s go with that lol this was the one that reminded me the most of some of the Julep polishes because it`s a little streaky, very opaque yes, but streaky :-/

stone cold: wow, this one surprised me. it`s a matte finish yet it has sparkle to it, does that make sense? I suppose this is very district 12 since it pretty much reminds me of coal. it is a dark base slate gray, I wonder what it will look like with a top coat?

I am LOVING these shades, I could not be any more excited about them. now the question is ... which one should I wear when I go see the movie ???? lol
