Catching Fire Manicure + Giveaway (US - Ends 11/1)

Hi guys. A couple of weeks ago I posted about the new Cover Girl Catching Fire Collection that is popping up in drugstores. Being me, I bought all of the nail polishes. Today I want to show you one of the looks I created with these polishes and then we also have a giveaway so that you can own a few polishes from this collection.


This is the booklet that is with the display. It's filled with some really cool looking looks inspired by the districts of Catching Fire.


One of the looks was this fun gradient using several polishes from the new collection. I decided to recreate the look using new shades Black Heat and Scalding Emerald. I didn't look at this picture while I was doing it so it's not exact, but it's close. I think they have you used more more polish from their core line in the look. I didn't have that so I just used the two.


First I painted on two coats of Black Heat on all of my nails. Then I used the edge of a makeup sponge (just one of those regular white triangular ones you can get anywhere) to lightly sponge on Scalding Emerald onto Black Heat, making sure that I built it up so that there was more color on my fingertips. If I had looked before doing this, I think I would have just started sponging closer to my cuticle since it looks like my gradient is a little shorter than what's shown in the booklet.


So that is my Catching Fire inspired manicure. Now it's your turn to win some polishes. All you have to do is fill out the Rafflecopter below. US only at this time. Sorry, there's regulations against shipping nail polish overseas and  I don't want to deal with customs. Good luck!
