China Glaze "Riveting" Nail Polish (Hunger Games)

It's a scorcha' out there today (that's my Boston accent kicking in).  Here in NJ it's about 93.  You know when the weather app tells you the "low" is gonna be 73, you're in for some hotness.  Last year at this time I was living in Oregon, and it didn't reach even close to 80 until almost the end of July.  I miss that weather.

What better to 'celebrate' the hotness than with a hot polish?  China Glaze "Riveting" is a fiery-orange polish that is so bright it almost glows:

My nails are on 'fi-ya'!

As you can see from this last close up photo, there are delicious fleck particles in this polish.  It's so sparkly and beautiful and just perfect for summer!

If you haven't noticed, I'm slowly making my way through the Hunger Games collection.  When I started out, I only had 2 or 3, so I didn't do an all encompassing "collection" post like I usually try to do.  Since then, I've acquired the complete collection. You can see the other colors I've swatched so far in these links:

Luxe & Lush w/ Dress Me Up
Stone Cold
Hook & Line

Is is hot where you are today?


  1. Riveting is stunning! One of my favourites from this collection :)

  2. Haha yeah the police sent out a heat wave warning in our area as well! This color is absolutely stunning on you! I was kind of disappointed by Julep's very brief appearance on QVC yesterday :( However, that glitter is just spectacular! Have you tried the caviar manicure?

    1. I know, I thought it would be an entire hr or something (that's what I'm used to when I watch QVC for Bare Escentuals). I guess they have to work up to that! It was nice to see Jane Park in action- I like her! I haven't tried a caviar manicure yet, mostly because hear they fall off pretty quickly and I don't want my youngest son finding them on the floor and eating them! lol The stuff you have to worry about with kids ;-)

      PS Stay cool!

  3. This is easily one of my favourites from the Hunger Games collection--I love that incredible, golden shimmer!

  4. Of course it's hot here! I live in Texas! :) And I totally read that first line of your post in a Boston accent, haha. I love this nail polish. It was one of my must haves from the collection. I need to wear it again!

  5. Isn't this shade like a much-needed citrus blast on a hot day like today? By the way, at least you have an ocean near you and can benefit from some welcoming breezes - you DO NOT want to be in Quebec when it gets viciously hot & humid & sticky like it has been the past couple of days (YAY for AC!!)

    Love this shade and love the glowing embers look it gives - your fab swatches make me appreciate it all over again! Can't wait to see the rest of your Hunger Games creations!

  6. I'm usually not a fan of oranges, but this one is stunning!!

  7. Ok so this is like one of three polishes I didn't get from the HG collection but I went to Sally's today and BECAUSE OF YOU I bought this right up. It was from the clearance rack though, so that makes me feel a tad better. Stop it woman you're making my wallet weep. p.s. this is SO creepy but whatever we're past that point.. you're nails are getting long and I'm jealous. They look great!
