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!
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.
Yes, it’s really that bright!
I still have 2 more of these to swatch for you, so keep an eye out for those! Have you picked any of these up yet?
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!
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.
