CoverGirl Limited Edition Capitol Collection Glosstinis Part 1

We've gotten a lot of teasers and previews of this collection...

CoverGirl Capitol Collection Clock
A clock! Just like the arena!

But over at Fashionista... they've got the scoop on the ENTIRE Hunger Games Capitol Collection from CoverGirl!

So... I wondered when I first saw the Flamed Out collection, if that was actually going to be the Hunger Games Collection, and from what I've seen, there's a LOT of crossover between the two. Makes sense, I guess. If it bombs, they can just pretend it was going to be limited edition all along, and if it succeeds... well, the Flamed Out collection is a way for our favorites to live on!

After seeing a couple of the featured District Looks on CoverGirl's site, I had also been wondering if they were going to branch into nail art stickers, and it turns out, I was right. Flamed Out, Tawny Flame, Crimson Blaze, Inferno, Seared Bronze, and Red Hot Rebellion are the names of the stickers, and with the exception of the last two, feature a flame design of some kind. Don't get me wrong... I get it... Catching Fire, Flamed Out... I just wish they would've gone a little further outside of the box. Is it too much to ask for Mockingjay nail art? (Maybe for the next movie?!?)

Either way... on to the actual polishes!

CoverGirl posted this on their Instagram yesterday...

CoverGirl Capitol Collection Black & White

And the polishes are listed on their site...

CoverGirl Limited Edition Capitol Collection Glosstinis

You can add the new shades to your cart, but as far as I can tell, they're not yet available for purchase. Fashionista posted a pic of the bottles, so I made it into a fun collage and tried my best to match up the shades with the appropriate names. Please keep in mind that as of right now, these are my best guesses and may not be 100% correct.

CoverGirl Black Heart, Flamed Out, Inferno, Pyro Pink, Rogue Red, Scalding Emerald, Seared Bronze, Sulfur Bronze, Violet Flicker
r1: Black Heat, Flamed Out, Inferno
r2: Pyro Pink, Rogue Red, Scalding Emerald
r3: Seared Bronze, Sulfur Blaze, Violet Flicker

I'm not entirely sure which polishes I'll be picking up. I think this collection is one of those that I'm going to need to see in person before I rule out any colors. Swatches would probably help, too... Metallic finishes can be sooooo hit or miss. I'll be stalking this collection closely!

What do you think of the Capitol Collection Glosstinis?

  1. Do you know if the nail stickers are for sale yet? I have seen the display in several stores and purchased a few things, but none of them had nail stickers. I haven't seen anyone post real photos online yet either.

  3. I've been wondering the same thing. I've seen 2 displays, and neither had the nail stickers. No one has spotted them "in the wild" yet to my knowledge...

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. 




Polishes Used:  1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Out Ridge Filler 3 Coats SinfulColors Mauve On Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite
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…

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…

Zoya Free4You Promotion

It's Zoya promotion time again! This is one sale that I just have to jump on every year. Usually, it's because I try to do a no-buy around the Holidays and I'm just itching to buy all of the polish. I didn't really set out specifically to do that in 2015, but that's how it ended up. So I was pretty excited to get the email about Zoya's one week only Free4You sale!


The premise of the sale is simple, choose 4 Zoya shades, (excluding pre-packaged sets, Naked Manicure, Zoya Treatments, and the Spring 2016 Whispers Collection) enter 4YOU at checkout, and pay just $15 promotional shipping. That's the equivalent of $3.75/bottle with free shipping. Zoya polishes normally retail for $9-$10/bottle, so this is a pretty sweet promotion!

Now I know you're wondering... what shades did I pick out? I thought you'd never ask! I swear, I didn't set out to only order purple and blue polishes. And I know that exactly none of these were on my Lemmings list! That see…
