I didn't go far back in the thread, so OOPS if this has already been posted, but has anyone seen the Hunger Games line of nail polish? I kind of want them all, but I ordered the Foie Gras (gross name, but whatever) from ebay. They seem to be a little cheaper there than other websites... I guess people buy them in bulk and sell them?

I tried on electrify and it was quite nice, the luxe and lush looks amazing! Do any of you guys use nail dryers? Any thoughts?

I want them all, too. Except for hook and line and mahogany magic (it looks kinda weird and poopy).

I never have the patience for the nail dryers even on the rare occasions I get my nails done. Get a quick dry top coat and be done with it.

In theory, the dryers help seal your color and help your mani last longer, but I think the limiting factor is probably skill and patience. I you clean your nails with vinegar to before base coat and if you wrap your tips and use thin, even coats, it will last longer.

Also, the Uv dryers are probably really bad for your hands/skin.

I went to Sally's to look at these and they had I think 3 colors left and maybe a grand total of 5 polishes...of course the ones I was least interested in.

Nail dryers remind me: What's up with the shellac manicures? Do they have shellac in them or is it just a name? My sister-in-law wanted me to buy the UV light thing so we can do our nails together.

That was the situation when I went to Ulta to browse/dig through clearance bins. Something tells me Hunger Games won't make it to a big sale.

There's another company out there that has a gel/shellac manicure but I can't think of the name.

No Ulta for me! I didn't even know what they were until the past few months (when my polish habit got ramped up) and have never been. Our Sephora has been here less than a year...and by Sephora, I mean JCPenney kiosk Sephora, not the real deal.

I would love a place with higher end* polish on clearance.

*the vast majority of my polish is Sinful Colors and Wet'n'Wild (bought on sale!) so to me "higher end" = more than five bucks.

There are new Zoya swatches up!

Beach collection (I like Wednesday, but I wonder if it's like Orly Gumball and similar polishes. I also like Reagan, Lara, and Shelby--I'll have to see more pics to see if they're that unique)
http://www.temptalia.com/zoya-beach-collection-preview-photos-swatches

Surf collection (I looooooove Zuza and also like Kimber and Rory):

I actually really like the mahogany. I saw someone wearing it on a blog though, and it looks a little different than the color swatch. I prefer more natural matte colors though.

I am obsessed with the HG but wish the polishes reflected the characters and not the districts. I saw the colors at Ulta last week and did not buy any but I might go back and see what I can get. I really just want Luxe and Lush, the other colors are not my thing or I have colors way to similar.

CND don’t test.

Shellac is just a name they gave it (because of the high shine finish), it has no bugs in it! But I have struggled to find out if it’s vegan (the internet connection here sucks and I can't open the pic you linked to). Because I have a pro account with CND if I email them they just direct me to the MSDS which don’t actually list ingredients.

But anyway, it’s a power polish, not a gel polish like some others, which means that (if you have healthy nails) it can last up to 2/3 weeks without chipping. Also because it’s not a gel, it can be soaked off and there’s no buffing of the natural nail. If your nails are peely and dry like mine it is likely to not last as long though.

Hybrid gel polishes such as Nubar’s Gelicure, Gelish, Gellux, OPI Gelcolour.. are part varnish part gel and usually have to be lightly buffed to break the seal before you can soak them off.

(I’ve researched the hell out of this because I’m planning to train in both Gelicure and Shellac over the next few months! :-)

My aunt got me a little battery operated nail dryer for Christmas. It's cute; I don't know if it helps anything though. It does get me to wait between coats because I like using it for novelty factor. Plus I thought it was super thoughtful of her to get it! I don't know that I'd buy one for myself though.

2 coats of Butter London Henley Regatta with Orly Liquid Vinyl on the tips
Image

2 coats of Zoya Rea with Wet N Wild It's All in the Cut dabbed onto the front half of each nail. Rea has grown on me and I like it more now than I did 2 years ago.

Fupa - I totally understand what you were saying about buying lots of polish and feeling the need to buy more, more, more.

I was kind of excited about the Hunger Games polishes, but when I saw them in person I was completely underwhelmed. But I guess it's just as well - a few more dollars not spent on polish! :)

I REALLY like Carly and Rory from Zoya's Surf collection!

I'm also lusting after the CG Hunger games collection.

I kept looking at Effie's nails during The Hunger Games and expecting her to be wearing some of the colours in the range, but I'm pretty sure she wasn't, they were all much brighter like purpley-fuschia and blue with beads and diamontes stuck on

That's weird, you would think the colors would match up. In a moment of very poor judgment I wandered over to a different Sally's while waiting on a prescription to be refilled. I got a beigey one with glitter which is really pretty but sheer and Smoke and Ashes, which is beautiful in the bottle but totally underwhelming on the nail...I think I'm taking it back tomorrow and I never return nail polish. I may trade it for the super coppery color.


On a different note, Sally's around here seem to be gravitating near wherever there is a WalMart...literally. Is that a trend?

i just want to say that i bought my very first butter london polish today, the shade "no more waity, katie," which i've been wanting ever since i first saw it because a) it's gorgeous and b) i loooove the royals, esp. wills & kate. my sister and i drove an hour to our closest ULTA and had quite the swatch-fest. as an aside, i am totally wanting UD's lipstick in "naked."

yay for fancypants vegan nail polish! my sister bought a zoya polish in "america" for only $3.50.

...is "no more waity, katie" opaque or should i layer it over another color? i was planning on doing a couple coats.

EDITED to say that butter london has a spring promo on their website-- 3 polishes for $30 with code SPRING. don't know when it expires. butterlondon.com

Kitteh, I love non-traditional "French" manicures and teal and black are my favourite colours for anything, so I love that! My nails are never really long enough to do that. Maybe in summer when my nails tend to be stronger (my hands really hate the cold). I've been in love with the matte black nails + shiny black tips combo ever since I first saw it and really want to try it out. On a side note I really dislike how makeup (and other things such as shoes) tend to cost about twice as much here as they do in America. I can get Zoya nail polish here now (mail order) but it costs ~$23. Ridiculous. I think Chanel retails for something like $30 here.
