Two China Glaze Capitol Colors Strike My Fancy!



The China Glaze Capitol Colors collection has created a lot of buzz in the nail polish world. I have not read any of The Hunger Games trilogy, but it seems like many polish lovers have and love the story line. I feel like I should read the books, but for some reason, the descriptions I am reading about the story are not catching my fancy. The nail polish colors, however, have definitely caught my eye!! I have two of them for you today- China Glaze Harvest Moon and China Glaze Foie Gras.


China Glaze Harvest Moon is one polish I knew I wanted upon seeing the promo pictures for this collection. Harvest Moon is a stunning copper metallic with a cool finish that you can really see in the macro shot below. It's like large shimmer particles all jammed in tight together to create this metallic look. Harvest Moon is a beautiful color, especially if you love metallics like I do. I am wearing this as a full mani right now, as I couldn't bear to take it off!


Harvest Moon is a very solid two-coater, no need for any more than that. The formula was absolutely wonderful! No problems whatsoever!!



China Glaze Foie Gras is a dark taupe-mushroom creme. Similar to many of the taupes that have been released recently, but maybe a tad darker and more chocolate-y.  Foie Gras is pretty and the kind of polish that could become a staple in your collection. It may not be the most unique polish in the Capitol Colors collection, though, so check your stash for dupes.




Foie Gras was another solid two-coater. The formula was maybe a little thick, but otherwise no problems at all. I hope the rest of this collection has formulas like these two colors!


I am loving these two China Glaze Capitol Colors polishes, especially Harvest Moon. I am planning on also picking up Stone Cold (I love a good matte), Agro, Riveting, Electrify (duh!!!), and possibly Smoke and Ashes. Which colors are you planning on getting, or have you already purchased your Capitol Colors?

The China Glaze Capitol Colors collection is available now at an Ulta near you, or online at Ulta.com.

These polishes were sent for review. For more information, please see my Disclosure Policy.

I just bought four of these colors; harvest moon, foie gras, dress me up, and stone cold. I used dress me up first, its a pretty and simple color. I wore it out to a dinner presentation- its a nice neutral (I think i maybe only applied one coat). I put on harvest moon last night and I looooove it. I haven't tried foie gras yet but honestly, I was expectin it to be more purpley than it is

Peace, Love and Polish said...

I definitely love Harvest Moon!

Amanda B- yea, Foie Gras is really just a dark taupe in my opinion. A touch of purple, but not much. Harvest Moon is so excellent though, I'm still wearing it and love it! I want Stone Cold as well!

Me too Peace, Love and Polish! Did you get any of these yet?

I just went to Sallys today and got Harvest Moon and Fast Track then had to run to a second Sallys to find Riveting but it was so worth it! These colors are so beautiful and unique I couldn't pass them up :)

I picked up: Riveting, Smoke and Ashes, Luxe and Lush and Hook and Line! I'm trying to keep myself to those four, though, so I don't go spend all my money!

Megan- I'm thinking about Fast Track too, it seems pretty unique! I am going to my Sallys tomorrow to look for Riveting! I really hope they have it!

Sara- sounds like a great haul! I am jealous of your Riveting! Hopefully, I'll find it though!
