"The odds are never in the favor of homely nails." -Effie Trinket

Capital Couture, a style blog inspired by the best selling book and forthcoming movie "The Hunger Games",  launched this week at Tumblr.  Feature articles in this first issue include a profile of Effie Trinket, played by Elizabeth Banks in the film, the pink coiffed style maven who is escort for District 12's heroine and tribute Katniss Everdeen.  Check out the nail tips from a Capital stylist.

China Glaze's  collection "Colours from the Capital", to be released on March 1st, also receives a nod.   Polish names now refer to each of the twelve districts, although the original polish names leaked on the web were based on various characters in "The Hunger Games".  The name changes happened after Lionsgate was slapped with a $10 million lawsuit by the parent company of China Glaze after they said Lionsgate tried to improperly terminate their contract.  Uh oh.

Polish Names:
Luxe and Lush – District 1 (Luxury)
Stone Cold – District 2 (Masonry)
Riveting – District 3 (Technology)
Hook and Line – District 4 (Fishing)
Electrify – District 5 (Power)
Fast Track – District 6 (Transportation)
Mahogany Magic – District 7 (Lumber)
Dress Me Up – District 8 (Textiles)
Harvest Moon – District 9 (Grain)
Foie Gras – District 10 (Livestock)
Agro – District 11 (Agriculture)
Smoke and Ashes – District 12 (Mining)
