Not much to note on this post, I'm not showing you swatches or anything, I'm just so excited I had to share! I have been waiting anxiously for China Glaze's Capitol Colors collection to com out; some of them look stunning! I had a dream the other night that I saw the shades on other people, but I couldn't find any of them anywhere. Well, I went out looking today even though most places give tomorrow as the official release date, but I had noticed on Hot Topic's website that they say they will be available as of today. So on the off chance they had them in-store as well, I went to my local mall's Hot Topic, and they had the display on a table front and center! There were only 8 colors of the 12 left, and only 3 of those were shades that I wanted, but I snatched those three up. I asked the guy who rang me up if they had any more hiding somewhere, and he said no, but he also told me that they'd had them since the 22nd! He cited a special licensing agreement.
And then he tried to ask me if I was excited for the movie, and it took me a half second to process that. Oh yes. There is a movie. Yes, I am excited for the movie, and I told the cashier as much. It looks like it will be really neat. But I haven't read the books. When the cashier heard this, his eyes went wide and his jaw dropped. "You haven't read the books!?" he gasped in disbelief, as if he couldn't understand why I'd be so excited for nail polish if not for the superficial tie-in to a series of books written for adolescents. Don't get me wrong, I'm not against Young Adult books, it's just not my genre of choice and so I haven't read anything in that genre for years. Frankly, I don't get much time to read anything non-academic, and by the time I do get to read something non-academic, I either read non-fiction or one of the Classics I haven't been required to read for school yet. (Or Star Trek novels. But Star Trek novels don't count.) And they always make great movies of the books anyway, so I get to consume them that way.
Anyway, happy fun nail polish time!

I will definitely show you swatches next time I switch my nail polish! You better bet I am trying each of these babies out before I re-do my manicure. But I'm not ready to give up my sweet leopard print nails just yet; they're still going strong, and they make me happy :P
