Soooo China Glaze are releasing a polish collection based on the Hunger Games series and indeed the collection will be launched to coincide with the film in March. I can’t confirm when these will hit the UK but I’ll try to find out. China Glaze is stocked in Sallys.

I was sent two shades to show you, the first of which is Foie Gras. The name makes me shudder to be honest as there’s nothing good about the idea of Foie Gras.

China Glaze Foie Gras

A dark taupe with a hint of purple, it’s not very exciting but it is nice. It makes me think of truffles…mmmm. I must say I found the formula a bit hard to work with, it’s hard to explain because it wasn’t an especially thick polish but it performed as if it were! Two coats worked just fine but I notice my little finger is a little patchy. Nice polish though.

Then there’s Luxe and Lush. It’s a flaky, but certainly not as I know it. It’s like little shards of plastic rather than  the thin wisps of flaky substance I’m used to. I’ve applied it over Foie Gras and I don’t think it’s the most complimentary combination but it’s good enough to show you how pretty Luxe and Lush is. I’ve taken a few shots to show you it in a few different lights, to try and catch all the colours.

It doesn’t look like the flakes would lie flat but they do and it’s pretty. I fancy this over a bright green and a bright orange so I’ll definitely be having a play with this one as its got bags of potential.

Here’s a little look at the whole collection. There are a few I have my eye on in particular Fast Track and Riveting.

Any take your fancy? I’ve not yet read the books but I do have them all waiting on my bedside table ready to read next!

    Got to be honest not setting my world on fire as a collection, Agro might just be worth a look but even then I doubt I’d purchase!

    Love the look of that Foie Gras! (love fois gras full stop, mind you!). It’s so sophisticated.

    Wow seriously, that name made me lose all of the little respect I had left for China Glaze. There’s nothing funny about these inumane practices. It’s a pretty shade but I wish they had thought of a better name, seriously!
