I may not be much of a make-up person but I have always loved doing my nails. I am pretty blessed in the nail department and have always had long, strong nails without much effort!
I have hundreds of nail varnishes but in honour of the approaching release of Mockingjay - Part 1 next week, I decided to dip into my Hunger Games collection by China Glaze.
China Glaze released this collection in 2012 inline with the first film. There is a colour for each district and the majority (with the exception of that neon orange) are pretty neutral and natural colours which I love. A couple of the nail varnishes have a fine glitter or shimmer through them which I really like and Stone Cold (District 2) has a matte effect to it which is fab.
I adore the whole collection and have found an occasion to try each one - yes even that neon one! However my three favourites would have to be Dress Me Up, Fast Track and Electrify.
This week I went for District 10 - Foie Gras, it's a really interesting browny grey which is perfect for Autumn. I use two coats which gives a really good colour although the varnish is pretty thick so you could get away with just one, this also means it applies really nicely however it does take a bit longer to dry. These pictures are taken the day after I painted my nails as I think it's nice to show how a varnish lasts. China Glaze is not my favourite brand for longevity and as you can see after only a day it has already started to chip at the very tips but the colours are so beautiful and unusual so I guess that makes up for it a bit!
What do you think about the China Glaze Hunger Games Collection? Are you as excited as me for Mockingjay?!
Lots of Love,
