China Glaze Capitol Colours Preview & Bottle Pics

Here's a little collage I made with the bottle pics. :)

From top left corner, clockwise in format -> District number, official name ( district specialty)
1 Luxe and Lush (luxury); 2 Stone Cold (masonry); 3 Riveting (technology); 4 Hook and Line (fishing); 5 Electrify (power); 6 Fast Track (transportation; 7 Mahogany Magic (lumber); 8 Dress Me Up (textiles); 9 Harvest Moon (grain); 10 Foie Gras (livestock); 11 Agro (agriculture; 12 Smoke and Ashes (mining)

I'm a fan of  the Hunger Games series, so I'm pretty excited for both this collection and the movie.  The first book was my favorite, so I can't wait.  So far I have my eyes on Luxe and Lush, Riveting, Electrify, and Harvest Moon.  My only disappointment with this collection is that not all the names really match up with the color.  Take Hook and Line (fishing), you would think it would be some sort of blue?  Well the reason for this is that the original names and colors were prematurely leaked.  Those names actually make sense to those who read the book. :(  I think I'll re label my bottles when I get mine. :P  In case you're wondering, here's the leaked version.

If you still haven't seen the official promo with the color descriptions, release date, etc.  Click read more to see it. :)

With THE HUNGER GAMES about to begin, Capitol citizens can show their support for their chosen district through China Glaze®’s exclusive Capitol Colours nail polish collection.  The collection combines rich crèmes, soft shimmers and bold glitters to create the limited edition 12 shade nail polish collection inspired by the most anticipated movie release of the year.

The China Glaze® Capitol Colours collection includes the following shades:

·         Dress Me Up – A stripped down dark rose pink crème
·         Foie Gras – Decadent dark crème taupe
·         Fast Track – Soft sandy brown with a gold metallic shimmer
·         Hook and Line –Pearlescent light grey
·         Stone Cold – Matte slate grey with shimmer
·         Smoke and Ashes – Black-based teal with multicolored shimmer
·         Agro – Moss green with gold shimmer
·         Mahogany Magic – Reddish-brown crème
·         Harvest Moon – Crystalized copper shimmer
·         Riveting – Bright orange shimmer
·         Electrify – High-wattage gold and ruby red glitter blend
·         Luxe and Lush – A high octane flaky overcoat

The release of the collection follows the debut of the China Glaze® Capitol Colours consumer and beauty trade advertising campaign featuring the story’s Effie Trinket, who is assigned by the Capitol to escort and prepare the Tributes from District 12 for the 74th Annual Hunger Games.  The ad features the tagline, “What will you be wearing to the opening ceremonies?,” encouraging fans of THE HUNGER GAMES to support their favorite tribute and district by wearing a corresponding shade.  Full-page ads will run in the March issues of teenVOGUE, People Style Watch and InStyle.

China Glaze® Capitol Colours will be available in early March 2012 at salons and specialty beauty retailers including Sally Beauty Supply and ULTA stores, coinciding with the release of THE HUNGER GAMES in theatres March 23, 2012.  Individual shades retail for $7.  The collection will be available in a 12-piece counter display as well as open stock colors.

    hmmm i didn't think of that! if it's close i hope it has less flakies... i feel like Shine of the Times totally takes over every manicure!

  5. Aw sorry about the late reply! There are swatches up now, but it doesn't seem to be a Shine of Times dupe. I'm kind of glad since there are a lot of those out there now. :P

  6. It's a pretty nice collection! :)
