Creative Cuticles Fire & Ice Duo

***Press Sample***


You will never watch the Hunger Games again without giggling the first time Katniss yells "PEETA!"  I chortle, every time.

Creative Cuticles Nail Polish released her "Fire & Ice" duo today, based off the characters Katniss and President Snow from the Hunger Games series.  I was fortunate enough to be able to swatch them - and it was uber exciting to do so, because the Hunger Games series is one of my absolute favorites!!!  It's what finally got me into pursuing archery ^_^

First up I'll show you "Snow" of the duo:






I, uh...I don't paint flowers very well.  That's supposed to be a white rose, since that is a very prominent symbol of Snow throughout the films (perhaps the books, too- still have to read them).

"Snow" is a jelly packed with turquoise and holographic glitters.  I am wearing two coats over a white base in the photos above - in the macro, the jelly looks more turquoise than it is in real life.  I added a layer of KBShimmer Clearly On Top over the nails with Snow.  I used Zoya's matte velvet topcoat over the nail with the rose.  

And here is the Katniss inspired "Ablaze:"






Didn't like my rose so much that I shot an arrow through it and set it on fire.

Ablaze is an orange jelly with gold/orange micro glitters/flakies.  This is two coats over a white base in the photos above with a layer of KBShimmer's Clearly On Top.

This duo is available for purchase at $8.75 each HERE - be sure to enter code FIREICE at checkout for the collection price if you want both :)  You can also follow the Creative Cuticles Instagram for more swatch photos and teasers of upcoming releases!

What do you think of this duo?  Are you a Hunger Games fan (book and/or movies)?

Polish was sent to me by maker for photography purposes.  All opinions and experiences with the polish are my own and remain 100% honest.
