Hunger Games - Girl on Fire Polish

Hi all!!! I finally made it back to a Manicure Monday post! *Phew* 
It's been a tough week but I was adamant that this polish post had to go out the beginning of this week to celebrate the opening of Hunger Games on Thursday!!!! 

So I present to you, what me and my fellow Nail Lacquer Affectionados have dubbed
"Girl on Fire"


A little confused? That's okay because this is actually China Glaze's - Electrify from their Hunger Games collection layered over a reddish-raspberry OPI base color. (Sorry forgot the name T_T Nail Polish Blogger fail) 

As soon as my friend saw this color she immediately thought of it being the Girl on Fire! And with all that red and gold sparkle who could blame her? So once she showed it to me and called it that the name sorta stuck :P  

I tried to get a close up so you could see the gold glitter interspersed with red sparkles.  Its a fairly dense glitter polish which was a pleasant surprise and meant that I got really good glam coverage with just one coat.

All the other colors from this collection are gorgeous too but if I had to pick as the most "Hunger Games - ish" It definitely has to be this one so I'm glad its the one my gal decided to pick up in the end. ^_^ And even more glad she was kind enough to share and let me use it too!

So Hope you enjoyed. And is anyone else out there going to the Midnight Premier? :P I'm already debating whether I should deck myself out in some Capitol Garb or something for an added bit of fun while waiting line :P



  1. Nice combination! I've been thinking Electrify is too warm for me, but this doesn't give me that feeling at all.

    P.S. Any chance you'd consider turning off word verification for comments? It makes my eyes sad.

    1. Your wish is my command, well as long as I am able to do it. So I switched off word verify. Hope this makes your eyes Happier! :D

      Also I felt the same way at first about Electrify. It is probably more accurately described as gold glitter with some various sized red glitter tossed in.

      But I found that it really adapts depending what you layer it over. I've seen it over bronzes and golds which make it really hot and "electrifying" XP. However, over a cooler red or even Agro. from the same collection it cools a bit and really gives the red glitter a chance to shine!

      Hope this helped ^__^
