China Glaze The Hunger Game Capitol Colours Collection

This. Post. Could. Not. Wait!

I had originally planned to post up some other new stuff I got the other day and the nails that I did with one of the newly acquired colours.. BUT! When I picked up this package today and saw it was my order from Nail Polish Canada, I knew that post was going to be put on a back burner.

Okay, first, I have to make a confession. When I did see the swatches for these gems online.. I wasn't overly thrilled. I just knew I'd be ordering them all anyways because I loved the book series so much.. I know, a sad reason to have a bunch of polish that you aren't overly excited about. In this case, however, I am really glad for my inexplicable reason to own them all. They. Are. All. BEAUTIFUL!

I did some swatching on a nail wheel to post up.. I mean, they do not do these bad boys justice, and for that I truly am sorry.

THEN! I had a moment of sheer genius. There are 12 colours.. And just over 12 days before the movie comes out.. PAPOW.. I can do a '12 Days of The Hunger Games' series. (I hope no one else out there has this going on either.. I mean, if they do, let me know! I will link you!) I was so jazzed about my idea, I bbm'ed my sister and told her. She probably thinks I am now crazy. It was either her or my bff I would have to message about this epiphany. I went the sister route as SHE READ the books (love you Gord!) - moving on!






So we have: Fast Track, Dress Me Up, Hook & Line, Mahogany Magic, Foie Gras, Agro, Harvest Moon, Riveting, Stone Cold, Smoke & Ashes, Electrify, and Luxe & Lush.

Again, I know these swatches do not do these any justice.. You'll just have to stay tuned for my '12 Days of The Hunger Games'. My plan is to post everyday using a different polish out of the 12 in some sort of nail design or as a base, you know how it works. I will sort of go from my least favourite to my favourite - though that isn't really a fair statement as I kind of have a new place in my polish loving heart for them all.. I guess it should be the from the polish I feel I will personally use the least to the one I feel I will use the most. Yah, that sounds better.. Right?

I will have that starting on Monday.. I am extremely excited. I scare myself sometimes.

Canada Day - Saran Wrap Style

I had said the other day that I would be using the Saran Wrap method again soon.. And I really did mean soon. I figure it was the perfect way to celebrate Canada Day (nail-wise) without over-doing it.. I mean, I'm fairly patriotic as a rule, but sometimes sporting a Maple Leaf on my fingers isn't exactly my style.. ANYways.. See? The love is there with the red and white.. I know I said the next time I did the saran wrap method, I was going to try with three colours.. But, I think I will maybe leave that experiment for tomorrow - today is only about these two colours! So.. How I get to this? Well, allow me to show you. Start off with the colours of your choice - one as the base, and one as your.. distress-er? And some saran/cling wrap. I take two pieces and ball them up.. You could use more or less.. But I figure two hands, two, er, balls. Yikes. After your base has COMPLETELY DRIED (you can do these a couple of hours in advance, the night before, or even use some

Splatter Floral Nails

Hey everyone! Last night, after I did these nails and when I went to bed - I was quite pleased with my nails. When I woke up this morning, though, I wasn't overly crazy about them. I thought of a few things I could change so that I would really like them.. I am very tempted to take how I want them to look and recreate them before work.. I might just have to do it. Anyways! Really, there is nothing wrong with them.. I just sort of find them.. boring? Ah well! I used: Lime Crime Milky Ways China Glaze White On White OPI My Favourite Ornament China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer China Glaze Sweet Hook OPI Mod About You Formula X For Sephora Infatuated Orly Liquid Vinyl China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I made the roses with a "main" colour and white, then I did the details with the "main" colour and black mixed together. Again, I don't dislike these bad boys.. I am just not amazed by them! Also.. did you
