One of the more exciting nail polish collection out right now (to me) is the China Glaze Capitol Colours Collection Inspired by the Hunger Games. I haven’t yet read or seen the Hunger Games, but this collection of polishes really caught my eye. If money (and storage space) wasn’t a variable, I would run out and get the entire collection because I am drooling over nine of the twelve shades offered, but that’s not a reality. So instead, I have one of my top picks to show you today.
“Fast Track” is a champagne-taupe base with subtle greenish gold shimmer. It’s super luxe, and extremely sophisticated. This polish is absolutely office appropriate, no matter how strict the guidelines. Also, because it’s a neutral sort of color, “Fast Track” looks great on shorter nails as well as long (I had to file all of my nails down because I had a accident that broke two of them, ouch!). Here are some swatch pictures in different lighting. The bottom most one isn’t great, I know, but it really shows the shimmer in the bottle pretty well. (click to enlarge all my photos.)
I feel in love with “Fast Track” the first time I saw a swatch. I’ll probably go back to Sally’s and pick up a couple more shades from the collection, but it’s so hard to choose. To see the other shades, check them out here on China Glaze’s website. China Glaze can be found at Sally’s Beauty Supply and at Ulta. Prices vary by location.
