Cover Girl Hunger Games Glosstinis Part 3

I FINALLY found the rest of the Catching Fire Glosstinis I was missing, and I have 2 of those for you today.  I still have 2 more to swatch, but you can see swatches from the rest of the collection here and here.   As I’ve said before, I absolutely love these polishes.  Everything about this collection is perfect!

Cover Girl Violet Flicker

First up is Violet Flicker, this is the polish I was most excited for, and it does not disappoint.  Violet Flicker is a reddish purple base with purple and teal shimmer.  The teal shimmer really comes out in the light, lending a teal sheen to the polish.

This is 3 thin coats, and the formula was excellent.  I used a coat of Out the Door for added shine.  It was very hard to photograph, and I was unable to capture the teal sheen.  The pictures really don’t do this one justice, it is beautiful in person.

Next,  Sulfer Blaze.  This is a bright yellow-gold, with gold shimmer throughout.

Another excellent formula, and this one covered in 2 coats.

Cover Girl Hunger Games Glosstinis Part 2

I finally found 2 more of the Hunger Games Glosstinis at Walgreens, and I have swatches for you today.

First up is Scalding Emerald, an olive green base with gold and green flakes and a metallic finish.  While this is an awesome color, it was a bit of a disappointment.  In the bottle, it looks a bit darker than what actually shows up on the nail.  I think I would like it better layered over a dark base, but it stands alone very well.  Shown is 3 coats.

Next is Seared Bronze.

Seared Bronze is a bronze base with gold and bronze shimmer, and maybe a little holo thrown in.  It shifts from dark bronze to bronze to gold.  This was definitely my favorite of the two.  I did 3 coats here, but probably could have gotten away with 2.

Here you can really see the gold shift.

I am still completely in love with this collection.  These are unlike anything I have already, and they are such beautiful polishes.  Now if only I can get my hands on the purple one!

Cover Girl The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Capitol Collection

Today I have a couple of new colors from Cover Girl’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Capitol Collection.  I was only able to get a hold of two of the polishes, but they definitely fit well with the Hunger Games theme.

Cover Girl Rouge Red and Inferno

The first color is Inferno.  This is a dark red base with copper and gold metallic flecks.  The flecks give this polish a chrome-like finish.  This is two coats.

Next is Rouge Red.  This is a lighter red base, with orange and red metallic flecks. Rouge Red needed 3 coats for full coverage.

Both polishes had a great consistency.  These are mini 3.5 mL bottles and I found them for $2.99.  Whether you’re a fan of the Hunger Games or not, this collection is worth it.
