Yeah, yeah, yeah. Unless you live under a rock in nail polish land, you have probably seen a zillion pictures of the China Glaze Hunger Games collection. I kept going back and forth with these. When I first started seeing photos pop up online, I was all -"OMGz!! I frickin need them ALL". Not being completely familiar yet with my new town and all the places that sold China Glaze nearby, I put them on the back burner and my interest started to wane. After seeing tons of pics, they weren't earth-shattering to me anymore. By the time I figured out that I had several Sally Beauty supplies nearby, the choices they had left in the collection were the ones I was least interested in. Fate stepped in when I walked into one of these stores Saturday (with a coupon, no less) and discovered they had an entire bucket of all the colors I wanted! I had to give in and get a few.
"Dress Me Up" is a mauve creme. How boring, right? I don't know why, but this color was playing on a loop through my brain "get me...get me...get me". I associate mauve with 'mature'. Maybe even 'boring'. Yet, I needed this. It goes along with my healthy nude polish obsession I think, and reminds me of all the moms who's nails I'd admired growing up:
|Hey...I am a mom, so it's ok for me to like some 'mom' colors, right?|
"Luxe & Lush" is a clear based with iridescent "shard" type glitter. How did I not know that I needed this like, yesterday?! I'm slowing becoming completely enamored with all shard type glitters. This one is special. It totally took "Dress Me Up" from nice to WOW. I love it:
I picked up a few more from this collection as well: Stone Cold, Electrify, Argo, & Riveting. I'm glad that I did not miss out on these!
I know your life is now complete, having seen your zillionth and one post on the CG Hunger Games polishes!
