China Glaze The Hunger Games Capitol Colours Riveting, Dist. 3

Another long title / name for The Hunger Games nail polish collection from China Glaze. When we first heard the buzz about the Capitol Colours, we envisioned bright crazy shades based upon our knowledge of Capitol fashion from the books. (They paint themselves green and have surgery to look like a tiger for Pete's sake!) Then, China Glaze changed course and decided to focus on the colors of the Districts. Upon seeing the collection, we were slightly disappointed by the lack of loud shades. So, we were immediately drawn to the orange Riveting.

Maybe we were just in 'hater mode' that day, because my next out-loud thought was that the hue was similar to OPI's Animal-istic. I was immediately chastised by the girl in the beauty supply store, and rightfully so. This color has such a great shimmer to it. It's been swatched on pale skin, but we just know it would look even prettier with a tan. Grab a bottle of this color now because you will really want to use it more often come spring and summer. Look at this sparkle! Love it!

If you read our Hook and Line post, then you know that most of my nails snapped when we were getting our Hunger Games nail polish collection. Maybe that's why I wasn't my usual up-beat self. One thing is for certain though, you can't help but be happy when you see this shade of orange on your nails (even if they are shorter than you would prefer.) The color and sparkle are sure to make you smile. And, if you are creating 'Girl on Fire' nails, then this polish is an absolute must-have.


  1. It looks gorgeous! I might just have to ebay this, had my eye on it for a few weeks!


  2. I have this one and it is truly gorgeous. Love it! The shimmering is like my other two CG faves, knotty and blue island iced tea. They look candle light lit. Just glowing.
