Style, Courtesy of the Hunger Games

I'm totally looking forward to the movie version of The Hunger Games, due later this month.

It's not the easiest movie for which to develop marketing tie-ins, given the dystopian nature of the stories. Um, branded weapons? Loaves of bread?

Cleverly, they made a play off the crazy makeup of the Capitol, featuring the character Effie Trinket. Check out those eyelashes.

I came across a post by All Lacquered Up, a nail polish blogger (niches for everything!) who wrote an exhaustive review of the Hunger Games nail polishes, named for each District in the story - complete with photos of how the polishes look on her nails.

Eye lashes do not look good to me.
Star Wars' Queen Amidala's make up is more striking.

I thought this was brilliant. All of the capitol parties and Cinna's designs (esp in book 2) will be super fun. Hunger Games wedding gown line?

Ooh, I like some of those polish colors! I'm looking forward to the movie too. Maybe I'll even see it in a theater!
