Happy Thursday everyone! So I know that the premiere for The Hunger Games isn't technically until tomorrow but since my husband and I are going to the midnight showing tonight, today's the day for us! As you've probably figured by now, I am a huge Hunger Games fan. I devoured all three books within a week, desperately trying to spread them out because I didn't want them to end but finding myself unable to stop reading. I'm sure you've all heard about The Hunger Games at this point, so I wont bore your with the details of the story. But let's just say even my husband loves the books. That's how awesome they are.
So for the premiere I decided to wear my district's color from the China Glaze Capitol Colors Collection. If you don't know what district you are in, you can find out here: The Capitol of Panem. I am from District 11, the agriculture district. I was so excited to find out that 11 was my district, because I come from the same district as sweet little Rue =) Anyways, the corresponding color for District 11 in the Capitol Colors Collection is Agro.
I was so pumped to learn that my color was going to be Agro. It is a lovely olive green metallic polish with micro flecks of copper, right up my alley. Unfortunately, application on this polish was HORRID on me. I have read blogs praising the formula of this polish, saying how wonderfully velvety and smooth it was. I seemed to have the exact opposite experience with it. I found Agro to be incredibly thick yet runny at the same time, making it hard to control and ended up flooding my cuticles several times. Also, it bubbled on me like no other polish I had ever seen. Horrid.
So yeah, Agro just did not agree with me. I don't know if it was my body chemistry, the bottle that I received in combination with the super thick formula, but I'm not impressed. I'll keep this in my stash and maybe give it another try one day, but mostly because I am a major Hunger Games fan, and of course, because it is my district's color.
In order to save the manicure, I layered one of my color shifting topcoat frankens on top. The one that I chose was one that I frankened from gold-to-green color shifting pigment and Confetti Tiara. Not only did it save an otherwise streaky and bubbly manicure, but it looks BANGIN!
Manicure is as follows:
-2 coats China Glaze Agro
-1 coat green-to-gold color shifting franken
Hope you enjoy! I apologize for the bubbliness, I swear my nails aren't made out of sandpaper!
Are you a Hunger Games fan? Will you be wearing your district's color to the theatre?
