Oh my freaking God!!! Hunger Games fans, you’ll be just as excited about this as I am!!! This deserves all the exclamation points that I’m going to put in this post. I am a HUGE Hunger Games fan! I read the first book in a day and then ran out and got the other 2 books and finished those in about a week. I couldn’t put the books down and was totally enthralled in this future America. I was one of those annoying people who kept pass the book along and forcing people to read it. I got my mom and a ton of her friends hooked, so that goes to show that although these books were written for young adults, it spans to all age ranges because of the underlying meaning of the books. I’m not going to go into the deeper messages and the very prominent fight against a totalitarian government, but I will say these books were amazing and the movie is one of the most anticipated for 2012. I am so excited for this movie to come out that I can barely type and now that China Glaze has announced that they are releasing a nail polish collection to coincide with the March 2012 release, I can’t stop grinning.
Rebel: inspired by Gale, seems like a pinky brown color. Doesn’t scream Gale to me but definitely a chic color
Catnip: inspired by Katniss. This one seems more appropriate for Katniss, it seems like a greyish metallic or a dirty type color.
Coal Hearted: inspired by District 12, a charcoal grey and exactly what I pictured District 12 to be like
Joined at the Seam: inspired by the Seam, a darker grey than Coal Hearted with silver or grey flecks. Also, the color and the name are so appropriate and exactly what I would picture.
Fight to the Finish: inspired by the night sky the tributes look into. Definitely a night sky color
We Could Runaway: inspired by the forest Katniss and Gale hunt in. This muted lime color with gold flecks is very reminiscent of Zoya “Yara” but more lime than olive. Not exactly what I pictured but still a cool color.
Baker’s Son: inspired by Peeta, a warm toned medium brown. Very appropriate because Peeta is warm and cozy, just like this color.
Cinna-mon: inspired by Cinna’s gold eyeliner. I will be wearing gold eyeliner when I go see this movie.
Fire in Flight: inspired by the Flaming Mockingjay. An flaming orange with yellow shimmer
Heat of the Moment: inspired by the costumes Katniss and Peeta wear into the Arena. Gold and red glitter, enough said.
Flaming Gems: inspired by Katniss’ interview dress. Looks like a flaky overcoat ladies!!
I want every single one! Well, I want every single one because of the movie but I honestly do want a lot of these. I am so excited for this collection and its nice to see another nail polish company besides OPI do a collection inspired by a movie. There isn’t an exact release date for this collection yet, but it is going to be released in March 2012. I am already planning on picking up primrose, rebel, catnip, joined at the seam, fight to the finish, cinna-mon, heat of the moment and flaming gems. So I want 8 of the 12 in the collection, but I know that I will be calling my Sallys and constantly stalking my favorite nail polish web sites for Flaming Gems, Primrose and Catnip.
Is there any other Hunger Games fans out there that are as excited about this collection as I am?? Which colors are you guys most interested in?
May the odds be ever in your favor!
