CoverGirl Capitol Collection TEASER

covergirl catching fire capitol collection

CoverGirl posted this silhouette of the fabulous Effie on their Instagram yesterday. (And while you're in the neighborhood... follow me!) CoverGirl is the OFFICIAL cosmetics partner of Lionsgate for Catching Fire, the 2nd release in the Hunger Games Film Series, based on the 2nd book of the Hunger Games Trilogy. PHEW!

China Glaze was the official partner for the first film in the series. They released a collection of 12 polishes for Spring 2012, one to represent each district of the Capitol. The polish collection AND the film were both successes, so it makes sense for Lionsgate to partner with CoverGirl this time around. That way, they can release not just nail polish, but all kinds of makeup.

CoverGirl will be releasing 12 looks for each of the 12 Districts, According to this fan site, CoverGirl will be releasing 12 looks, (one for each district) and the first 2 looks will be revealed today! Wonder which lucky districts get to go first? Personally, I think I'd start with District 12 and work backwards!

If you've forgotten or are curious, here's the breakdown of the districts:

District 1: Luxury
District 2: Masonry
District 3: Technology
District 4: Fishing
District 5: Power
District 6: Transportation
District 7: Lumber
District 8: Textiles
District 9: Grain
District 10: Livestock
District 11: Agriculture
District 12: Mining

And because I'm a total geek... here's a fan-made map, in case you ever wondered which District you'd live in. AND if you missed out on the Capital Collection from China Glaze, you can read more about it here, here, or here. BUT... that's not all! For whatever reason, I have swatches of China Glaze Fast Track that I've never posted. It's a pretty nude beige with slightly green leaning gold shimmer. It's a gorgeous shade, and this post is suffering from a severe lack of sparkle and glitter, sooooooo...

I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3

In case you missed my review of First Kiss, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health.

Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter shades on my toes lately…

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of.

Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit. 
Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times. 
This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd coat and add a 3rd for balance. Next, I ad…

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027, today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION...

Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and then add in some shimmer and glitter.
