Inspired by hallucinogenic venom that comes from the Tracker Jacker sting, Tracker Jacker Venom is a silver holo glitter bomb. I love that it's full of silver "holo dots and holo shimmer." The simplicity of the single color and sparing amount of glitter makes it subtle and perfect to wear for any occasion. Tracker Jacker Venom would look great over any base color but I used 2 coats over 1 coat of Illamasqua Caress. The formula and application were both great, the glitter came out easily and spread well on my nails. I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
Stay Alive is one of my favorites from this collection. Stay Alive is inspired by a mentors advice to the contestants before beginning the actual games. I just can't say no to rainbow holo circle glitters. Stay Alive is a mix of orange, teal, pink, red, purple, and silver "holo dots, pink and teal micro hexs." The amount of glitter in this polish is more my style - I like my glitter bombs to be blingy and fun! I used 1 layer of Illamasqua Jan as a base and 2 coats of Stay Alive. Plenty of glitter came out and it spread well on my nails Formula and application were both great. I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
Up next is Madge's Pin, a blend of "gold dots, flakes and micro hexs." Madge's Pin is inspired by the (now famous symbol for the books and the heroine) Mockingjay pin the heroine received from her litter friend before leaving for the Capitol and the games. The formula and application were both great. The small hexs did a fantastic job covering up empty space on the nail and dots add interest. I used 2 coats of Madge's Pin over 2 layers of Illamasqua Purity.
Inspired by the heroine and her adventures in the woods around her home, Catnip is a "mix of micro hexs, dots, flakies and hex glitters." I love the blend of green, gold and orange glitters in this polish. It is very reminiscent of nature, specifically the woods. The formula and application were both great. I was pleased with the amount of glitter that came out with each brush dip and the glitters spread well on my nails. I used 2 coats of Catnip over 2 coats of Sheswai Rootsy.
Bloodbath at the Cornucopia (which I will refer to as BatC) was another favorite for me. Not only because of the memories of reading it brought up or me but because it's a gorgeous red glitter bomb (and you know I am all for anything red). BatC is described as "a jam packed glitter, red hex and micros, red dots, and red flakies." I used 2 layers of BatC over 2 coats of Milani Almond Bliss. Formula and application were both fabulous...great glitter pay off and very easy to apply. I believe I forgot to topcoat this one.
Last but not least we have come to Betting on You. Inspired by everyone's favorite stylist, who has nothing but the utmost belief that the underdog/heroine will prevail in the games. Betting on You was another favorite of mine. It's a blend of black glitters - squares, hexs and dots in different sizes. Simple but perfect. You can wear this many ways and over a rainbow of colors. I chose to go neutral and put 2 layer of Betting on You over 3 coats of Sephora OPI Metro Chic. Betting on You had a great formula and I was happy with the glitter pay off. Application was a breeze and the glitters spread well on my nails. I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
