Loving Agro and Riveting. <3
I think they are supposed to represent each of the 12 districts… but I would like them named that way!!
Well it’s the “Colors from the Capital” collection. But I agree. They should’ve done a “Panem” collection and had a color representing each district. It would’ve been way cooler.
They actually did, 12 colors, 12 districts. Luxe and Lush is D-1(luxury items) Agro is 11(agriculture) Hook and Line is 4(Fishing) and so on.
I actually think harvest moon is 11.
Harvest Moon is for D-9 (grain)
these colours actually look amazing. it’s a more unique take on the capitol rather than just the neons i think!
I definitely agree with you, the colors should have been brighter. When I heard about this collection I thought it would be more lavish! I thought I read they were going to do a collection about the capital and another about Panem and the districts specifically, but maybe not. The last row is nice, but the names don’t even seem to fit that much. Hmm I’m kind of disappointed.
From what I heard is that each color represents each district, 12 districts, 12 polishes. The districts come from the Capitol (not really but you should get what I mean) hence why the collection is called ‘Colors from the Capitol’. If you read the names and think back to the book you should be able to tell what district the polish stands for. Luxe and Lush could be for district one. Hook and Line for district 4. Electrify for 3. Dress me up for 8. Stone cold for 12. Or smoke and ashes… maybe harvest moon for 11. Just my thoughts. I very well could be wrong.
I’m a bit dissapointed they didn’t include a polish that represented Katniss’ dress at her interview – something like a bright red glitter with blue/yellow flashes, it would have been a must have for me! I’ll have to wait and see what the actual swatches are like before I decide if I want to buy them or not.
Luxe and Lush over Riveting may be close to that
Super excited. The colors are great especially agro. I wish it were an OPI collection because I’m really not a CG fan. None the less I’m excited.
I was thinking the exact same thing! OPI also tends to have more fun names. Still loving the collection though
I love the four colours on the bottom row. Very pretty and sparkly :D
They should have named it colors from Panem or something. Anyway, extremely excited about the collection and can’t wait for it to come out. :D
Such amazing colours, can’t wait for swatches, so I can decide what to buy
Ive never had an interest in nail varnish but I like the colours in this collection :)
Looks amazing!! Can’t wait for this (and the movie!) to come out!
The original line was made for the districts, but people thought the names were too odd, so they changed it to represent the capitol instead. For example, Smoke and Ashes used to be called Fight to the Finish and it was inspired by the night sky the tributes looked into and, Stone Cold, used to be Joined at the Seam, inspired by the seam. There were also colors called Catnip, Primrose, Rebel, and others. You should look it up. I personally think the original colors connected to the story better, but whatever.
@Courtney they’re the same colors from the previous sneak peek of the collection. Only the names have been altered. I’m wondering if this was an agreement that made both companies drop their lawsuits and continue with the collaboration.
@Lauren Probably. I personally liked the original ones better though. They fit better.
From what I understand and have read- each color represents something different from the story..
Dress Me Up – inspired by Primrose
Argo – inspired by the forest where Katniss and Gale hunt
Smoke and Ashes – the night sky the Tributes look up into during the Games
Riveting – inspired by Katniss and Peetas costumes when they lit on fire around the arena
Stone Cold – inspired by District 12 the coal mining district.
Electrify – inspired by Cinna’s gold eyeliner he always wears
Luxe – inspired by the Capitol
Mahagony – inspired by Peeta and originally called “The Baker”
Just some examples of what I read.
Yes, like I said before, the colors arnt inspired by the Capitol, because when they developed the colors it was originally inspired by the Districts, and because of a lawsuit, they changed the names but kept the colors, therefore the COLORS are inspired by the Districts, and the NAMES are inspired by the Capitol.
luxe and lush :o
i think i need them all :l
As a huge hunger games fan, what the hell is up with the names?!?! But as a nailpolish junkie, I love the colors
OMG! Luxe and Lush!!!!! MUST HAVE!!!!!
I’ve heard that none of the leaked colors are definite. They’re still formulating the official colors
I’m thinking this is definite, I got this color chart from a China Glaze rep :)
I’ll admit I find it a bummer they didn’t go with the original names. Even though they’re the exact same colors, they now look different to me. For instance I was interested in Dress Me Up when it was called Primrose, but now it looks too muddy. I also wanted Harvest Moon when it was called Cinna-Mon, but now it looks boring to me. It’s funny how a little thing like a name can conjure an image and make something exciting and then take it away if it’s changed.
Agro, Riveting, Luxe and Lush are absolutely gorgeous. can’t wait for the collection :D
I LOVE harvest moon, dress me up and fast track. I’d LOVE to try these!!! Hope you will enter my giveaway on my beauty blog: http://lovelo.wordpress.com/2011/12/08/giveaway-be-a-bombshell-cosmetics-holiday-giveaway/ Last day to enter.
i screamed. no joke screamed! buying them all!!!
I have no clue what “Hunger Games” is, but I’m in love with Harvest Moon, Foie Gras, Smoke and Ashes, Luxe and Lash, Electrify and Fast Track. :D (I’m a nail polish addict.) Can’t wait for these to come out, any clue when they’re being released??
Ahhh another collection I now have to buy! They’re all pretty gorgeous, I’m in love with Riveting and Smoke and Ashes, they’re beautiful.
So pretty. Did they say when it will come out?
I think they come out march 1
I am SO EXCITED for this collection to hit stores! :D Luxe and Lush is GORGEOUS! <3
SO EXCITED! I have to start saving now for these!!!!
I will take the entire last row!! and dress me up, fast track and stone cold :)
Haven’t read Hunger Games because it looks like a rip off of Battle Royale, but those colours look amazing!! Will definitely be getting them =D
Considering the name of the collection references the capitol, none of these colors remind me of anything in the book which describes the capitol. If it’s the represent the districts, then why aren’t they named “Color’s from Panem”?
The last row is the best. The first row is pretty boring. It looks way too similar to tons of other colors that are already out… except maybe the silver one, but really, a silver glittery nail polish is nothing new. I think I like Riveting the best.
No, I lied. Electrify is my favorite.
these names don’t really seem to fit..
I think the idea of each colour representing a district is definitely plausible. But since 5, 6 and 9 we know little about, CG could have just added filler colours inspired from the story.
District 1 – luxury goods luxe and lush
2 stone, carving tools stone cold
3 electronics, cars, firearms electrify
4 fishing hook and line
7 lumber mahogany magic
8 textiles dress me up
10 livestock foie gras
11 agriculture harvest moon/agro
12 coal mining smoke and ashes
13 nuclear weapons (but only 12 colours so…)
I have to say I like the original names as suggested a lot better. But these are clever in their own way
I really want to see what Luxe and Lush will look like when worn. ^-^ I think it has a potential to be really awesome or really horrible depending on how they are doing the opal-thingy. I don’t buy more expensive polishes often (what can I say? I’m poor and kinda cheap lol), but depending on how it comes out, I may just have to buy it!
OMG ! LOOOOOOOOOOVE Riveting <3
I REALLY REALLY want riveting and luxe and lush! when does it come out?
I just wish they weren’t China Glaze, I can’t deal with CG. They chip so fast on me, especially when OPI will last a week and a half without chipping! And I love the OPI Pro-Wide brush so much better, ugh..
there seems to be a lot of debate about the names and the colors of this collection. i’m just kind of guessing from everything i’ve read on other blogs and msnbc (they have a story about the lawsuit on there) that the name of the collection is colors from the capitol but they are representations of the other districts (sort of how the capitol would see the other districts if that makes any sense).
Luxe and Lush (formerly Flaming Gems) – District 1 (Luxury)
Stone Cold (formerly Joined at the Seam) – District 2 (Masonry)
Riveting (formerly Fire in Flight) – District 3 (Technology)
Hook and Line (formerly Coal Hearted) – District 4 (Fishing)
Electrify (formerly Heat of the Moment) – District 5 (Power)
Fast Track (formerly Catnip) – District 6 (Transportation)
Mahogany Magic (formerly Baker’s Son) – District 7 (Lumber)
Dress Me Up (formerly Primrose) – District 8 (Textiles)
Harvest Moon (formerly Cinna-mon)– District 9 (Grain)
Foie Gras (formerly Rebel) – District 10 (Livestock)
Agro (formerly We Could Run Away) – District 11 (Agriculture)
Smoke and Ashes (formerly Fight to the Finish) – District 12 (Mining)
the colors definitely fit the district they are supposed to be representing and the names make it more transferable if china glaze would ever make any of these permanent but for die hard fans of the book (like me) i liked the original names better.
i have a blog post about it and the law suit if anyone wants to read it http://misshollyberries.wordpress.com/2011/12/14/china-glaze-hunger-games-collection-update/#more-847
love the blog leesha!
omgeeeeeeeeeeeeee! i almost died when i saw this. stood up and screamed. i LOVE the hunger games books, and nail polish is my favorite thing ever. thanks so much for sharing leesha!
Wow, these all looks so cool! I absolutely fell in love with “Riveting” because it reminds me of the descriptions of Katniss with her interview dress. To me, the colors kind of represent how the Capitol is on the inside: dark, vain, along with confusing and frightening. The last row of colors is about how lavish and wonderful the Capitol can look like on the outside. Either way, I LOVE these colors and I’m so excited for the movie to come out!!!!
I totally agree about the colors. If they were truly inspired by the capital these colors would be waaaay more lavish. I mean, people DYE themselves pink and green, with turquoise tattoos and I don’t see any colors like that. Or at least a lot of glitter. I agree that these are more district like than capital like.
I think the original names are MUCH more appropriate to the color choices. The colors make more sense that way, along with the coordinating district.
these are really cool and all but they kinda make me sick. they make me think of the capitol. and some of the comments are saying how they love this one or that one. *I* personally think it would Katniss sick. ;)
Does anyone have any idea how much these would be and where I could order them from because I live in the UK and would love this collection to review on my blog but China Glaze aren’t replying to my email about it :(
Yeah i work with them and i tried contacting them and no response.
That’s the problem. We’re confusing the districts. I definitely would’ve rather preferred them to name each color specifically for the district it represents. I think it’s just a little confusing… seeing as how we just confused district 11 with the two colors Agro and Harvest Moon. Still a cool collection though.
Did you guys see the recommendation from theHOB>? Someone on there found an online retailer ( http://www.amazingbeautysupply.com ) that you can pre-order this set from. I just pre-ordered the whole collection for myself and my sister and got free shipping too! Hurry up and pre-order it before it gets SOLD OUT! I’m so excited.
they say that although Districts 5, 6 and 9 representation isnt mentioned in the book, they’re industries are :
Does anyone know where i can buy these? They come out on march 1st but i dont know where I can buy them.
luxe n lush looks awesome
