Good Morning Polished People!!
I finally saw The Hunger Games recently (I know, I know it took me sooooo long!!!) and I absolutely loved it. I’m not much of a movie person but I really love reading a book and then watching the movie based on it. I’ve done that with several Nicholas Sparks books (and can’t WAIT for The Lucky One!!), the Twilight books of course, Charlie St. Cloud, The Time Traveler’s Wife and lots of others and usually I enjoy the movie enough, but I always think it completely pales in comparison to the book. The Hunger Games was the first movie based on a book that I actually REALLY liked!!! I thought it was awesome. Of course it leaves some things out (cuz it was only 2.5 hours long, and not full of internal monologues, thank God) but as a movie I think it’s fully intact! I liked it, I thought it did a GREAT job casting. I love Katniss in the movie- she’s pretty but not TOO pretty, and not frail looking at all. I absolutely hated how Kristin Stewart as Bella in the Twilight movies was even more frail and helpless than I imagined her to be in the books. I’m kinda into girl power anyway but mannnn that irritated the crap outta me! Anyway, I loved the movie… Peeta didn’t impress me at the beginning (if Ryan from “Dream A Little Dream of Polish” sees this she’s gonna FLIP) but by the end I loved him. I was disappointed at how little Gale was in the movie cuz he’s sooo cute but oh well. The movie was about Katniss, which I appreciated.
Soooo…. while I was at the theater I saw the previews for a potentially funny and interesting new Johnny Depp vampire movie called “Dark Shadows.” It just so happens that Orly is releasing a 4 polish set in collaboration with the movie! The movie comes out May 11th I believe, so the polishes should be out in the beginning of May at least but likely at the end of April. The collection consists of Mysterious Curse, a duochrome-y looking purple; Buried Alive, a shimmery copper; Decades of Dysfunction, a pastel pink or possibly lavender; and finally Grave Mistake, a dark brick red.
I’m excited for the purple (as long as it’s not a dupe for OPI Not Like The Movies and various other go-to duochromes out there) and I love copper so I think that could be pretty awesome. I think the red might be cool if it’s kinda dirty and (sorry to be gross, but) kinda like dried blood which would be fitting. The pink… ehhh idk. It might be cool but from the promo pic it just looks… well… pink. If you love pinks you’ll probably be into though. I’m just not.
What I want to know from you is: Did you see and what did you think about The Hunger Games? How did they compare to the book for you? Also- what do you think of this new collection? Will you be stalking your beauty suppliers to grab it or will you wait and see what everyone else says before running out to get it? Till next time, Happy Polishing!! 😀
