I went polish hunting other day. I call it hunting because I attack the nail aisle like a cat attacking its own reflection. That’s not a saying? Well, it should be.
[No exaggeration, this is exactly what I do]
I’m positive the ladies at Sally’s Beauty Supply hate me intensely. I roll in their like a tornado and hog up the entire polish section. By the time I leave, I look like I used my nails to slaughter a village of care bears.
[the doodoo brown color was on sale so I thought I could make it work. I couldn’t.]
Anyway, I was wreaking havoc on the nail aisle when I noticed that they had the China Glaze Hunger Games collection. Awesome. Awesome to the max.

I bought “Stone Cold” (a graphite-looking matte) and “Electrify” (FUCKING GLITTER). The other polishes are cool but these two are the only MUST HAVEs in my opinion.
The movie comes out this weekend and you can bet your effing buns that I’ll be there. This week I’m sporting Hunger Games nails. I used the polishes I bought from the collection—“Stone Cold” is my base color, “Electrify” is painted over my fire accent nail. The design is inspired by the book cover.
I think this series may be one of the rare instances where the movies are better than the books. But, why do you say that Tina? I’ll tell you if you shut up for a second. The first book is awesome. ‘Nuff said. The others start to go downhill for me (IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THEM YOU SHOULD STOP READING THIS).
For some reason, Collins decided to insert some extra Twilight-esque angsty teen romance bullshit into the second and third books. Maybe I’m alone on this one but I really thought Katniss lost a lot of her strength whining as she debated back and forth between Peeta and Gale. I look forward to seeing most of that junk cut out, especially because the arena in Catching Fire is so freaking cool.

If China Glaze and other companies keep releasing collections as companions to movies, they are going to get ALL OF MY MONEY. The Avengers movie comes out this summer… my eyes are welling up with tears just thinking about how awesome that collection would be… OH GOD. TAKE EVERYTHING. WHAT DO YOU WANT? MY KIDNEY? YOU CAN HAVE IT.
I’ve lost my mind. The nail polish fumes have gone to my head and it’s only a matter of time before I turn into this lady:
