Hunger Games Capitol Colours Collection
With the much-awaited film “The Hunger Games” opening on March 23 in movie theaters nationwide, beauty products retail giants such as Ulta Beauty and Sally Beauty Supply are cashing in on the global pop culture craze by carrying the official Hunger Games nail polish – China Glaze: The Capitol Colours Collection.
The collection is named after the Capitol in the fictional nation of Panem, the setting of the bestselling young adult trilogy by Suzanne Collins, the first novel of which was adapted for the upcoming movie.
The 12 colors in the collection are inspired by the “Districts” in Panem. For example, the nail color Luxe and Lush, which has a clear base with flecks of gold, corresponds to District 1, known for luxury. Stone Cold, which looks like gray granite, corresponds to District 2, known for masonry.
The price of each bottle varies from $6 to $7, depending on the retailer. In O.C., the collection is available at four Ulta Beauty stores and about 19 Sally Beauty Supply stores as well as select local beauty supply stores and online.
The nail polish collection is a partnership between Los Angeles-based nail products company China Glaze and Lionsgate, the studio releasing the film. Back in November, the parent company of China Glaze, American International Industries, filed a $10 million lawsuit against Lionsgate over the agreement to produce a Hunger Games nail polish collection, according to The Hollywood Reporter. About a month later, China Glaze unveiled the colors of the collection.
