CoverGirl Catching Fire Nail Stickers in Flamed Out and Seared Bronze


WooHoo!  The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is coming out on November 22, 2013 and it's already the 10th!  Less than 2 weeks left!  So to get ready for the movie you have to decide on your nail art, right?  How about wearing some of the CoverGirl Catching Fire Collection made specifically for the movie?

There were 9 nail polishes made to go along with the collection, and today I have one to share with you.  I found the CoverGirl Catching Fire Collection at my local CVS, and the first time I saw it, they only had the glosstinis (the nail polishes) and the other makeup products, but it wasn't until last week that I spotted a larger display at my same CVS (while they still had the smaller display up) that had the nail stickers as well.




The first time around I was only interested in the nail stickers so I bypassed the nail polishes, but the second time, after seeing the nail stickers I was drawn to this glowing red polish that I thought would look great under the nail stickers.   This is 2 coats of Rogue Red with top coat in direct afternoon sunlight.

Now for the nail stickers.  First up, Seared Bronze:






Next is Flamed Out:







In terms of ease of use, the stickers are plastic so they are more malleable than the paper nail stickers some companies have, but you can still easily end up with ridges if you have very rounded nails.  I would say if you use nail stickers often, these are easier to use than the Revlon stickers, but harder to smooth out than the ones from Sally Hansen.

If you are looking for the nail stickers, they do seem to be slowly showing up, but I haven't heard anyone else say they have found the stickers.  I've seen the nail polishes at Walgreens, but the only display with the stickers was at CVS, and while it seems like there are supposed to be 6 different sticker selections, the display at CVS only had these two.  If you wanted to see what this display looks like, you can look at my pic on twitter.  It is a full stand display, so if you haven't found the nail stickers yet, keep looking for bigger displays to come in to your local drugstores.

Are you going to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and if so, do you already have your nail art planned?

  1. I have a question not exactly related to this day's blog. When I use nail tape on my bare nail it strips a layer of my nail off when I take the tape off. Also, if I use nail tape over polish it will take the polish PLUS layer of nail off even if I wait 24 or so for it to dry before I even use nail tape. My question is... does this happen using the blue tape? The tape you are using looks just like painters tape that we use when we painted our house so I was wondering if that was indeed the type you were using and what it does to the nail as opposed to regular nail tape?

    1. Thanks for your question! I have never actually used a product labeled as "nail tape." I've used those french tip nail guides, but before using painter's tape (and yes, it is the same type you get at the hardware store for painting your house or furniture), I used clear scotch/cello tape. Unless I let my nails dry for a full 24 hours (and even after that time period I sometimes had issues), the clear tape would inevitably pull up some of the nail polish when I was trying to peel it off my nail. I'd also highly recommend it for using on your natural nails because they now sell it in a few different "types." I use ScotchBlue Painter's Tape - it's usually the easiest to get ahold of - and they now have a version called "Delicate Surface" that comes in a clear and orange wrapper that I find works quite well for nail art. While the "Original" ScotchBlue Painter's Tape works just fine and has been the one I've used for years, if you are having issues with your nails or the nail polish peeling up, I would recommend the "Delicate Surface" type of painter's tape to see if it makes a difference in your results. Hope that answers your question! Please let me know if you need more information.
