Hunger Games Nail Polish Collection :)

This weekend I went to the watch the Hunger Games. I also bought myself a couple of the polishes from the China Glaze Hunger Games "Colours from the Capitol" Collection.  Each of the polish names is directly connected to a district.   Interestingly enough they actually had other names before but CG changed the names at some point.  Below is a list of the current name, former name, and district it represents. Those of you that read the book may prefer the old names.  I would have liked a mix of them myself...

Current Name (Previous Name) - District
Luxe and Lush (Flaming Gems) – District 1 (Luxury)
Stone Cold (Joined at the Seam) – District 2 (Masonry)
Riveting (Fire in Flight) – District 3 (Technology)
Hook and Line (Coal Hearted) – District 4 (Fishing)
Electrify (Cinna-mon) – District 5 (Power)
Fast Track (Catnip) – District 6 (Transportation)
Mahogany Magic (Baker’s Son) – District 7 (Lumber)
Dress Me Up (Primrose) – District 8 (Textiles)
Harvest Moon (Heat of the Moment) – District 9 (Grain)
Foie Gras (Rebel) – District 10 (Livestock)
Agro (We Could Runaway) – District 11 (Agriculture)
Smoke and Ashes (Fight to the Finish) – District 12 (Mining)
 So what set of names do you prefer?

Here are some swatches of the colors.  I did the best I could with the pictures but they are truly all even better in person.  Smoke and Ashes has a beautiful multicolored glitter that sparkles beautifully when the light hits it.   And when you add a couple of layers of Luxe and Lush it looks like your nails are on fire! I find fast track to be the perfect nude well suited for work with a little extra in the form of a beautiful yet subtle glitter. When I went outside in the sunlight it had a beautiful sparkle :)

Have you bought any polishes from the collection? Which ones? Which ones are your favorite?
