China Glaze - Colours From The Capitol (Hunger Games) Collection

"This collection of 12 new nail polish shades is inspired exclusively by one distinct setting in The Hunger Games - the Capitol of the nation of Panem. Awash in lavish fashion, food, and entertainment, Capitol citizens enjoy extreme cosmetics and body modifications, bold wigs, and outlandish costumes."

Set to be released March 2012, around the same time as the Hunger Games Movie. I'm defiantly picking up 'Luxe and Lush' and 'Fast Track'. Soooo exciting! This collection has had its problems coming out, but its officially back on! Yay!

Essie Luxeffects Holiday 2011 Collection Swatches

I LOOOOOOVE this collection. SOOOOOO much. OK enough smoosin, here are the swatches of the 5 nail polishes in the collection. I swatched over black because it was a good basic colour so you can see the details in the colours. I used OPI Black Onyx as the base (its a plain black creme). You can see my other posts on this collection here.

OPI - Divine Swine (Muppet Collection Holiday 2011)

Can I just say, this collection is so fun! This is Divine Swine from OPIs Muppet Collection. It's a totally gorgeous purplish/pinkish glitter with medium sized silver hexagon glitter. Application was easy, I used two coats but as you can see around the edges it could have used a little extra. It, like all glitters, had a grit feeling, so I used Seche Vite top coat. Overall, I loooove it!

New! from Revlon - Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel - Stormy Night

I love new lines! This is Stormy Night from Revlon's new Colorstay Line. What the cosmetic lady at the drug store said about this is: 

- The line is inspired by UV shellac type polishes, it's sort of a hybrid with some of the same ingredients
- They do not need a UV light to dry
- It is suppose to last very long like shellac, its suppose to be durable and harder then regular polishes
- The line has a base and top coat but you do not need them like UV shellac polishes do
- They discoutinued the Colorstay line of nail polishes a few years back and now are re-releasing (they use to have a bottle that was very similar supposedly)

That was all the cosmetic lady knew about them. I can't wait for more actual information to come out on this line, it sounds exciting. I found these at a London Drugs and it was $8.99 CAD for a 11.7 mL bottle. The store had a bunch of different colours, they were all jumbled up on a messy shelf. The line had a top coat and a base coat, which I would try when these hit other stores where they won't be as expensive. I hope to see these at other stores soon!

Essie - A Cut Above (Luxeffects Collection Holiday 2011)

Another pretty polish from the Luxeffects collection. This is A Cut Above. A clear polish with muti size pink sparkles. Totally gorgeous. It does remind me of a mini Sally's Girl that I can't seem to find right now.  Today I used to over OPI Black Onyx. I used one coat of A Cut Above just so the different sized of glitter can show. I really really like this one. I think it's pretty, of course I think anything thats pink is pretty hahaha.
