There’s been a lot of chatter about the Hunger Games merchandising going on in preparation for the film adaptation’s release, but here’s one we were hoping would disappear — Hunger Games nail polish. After all, creating a color palate based on the Hunger Games themselves, or the children who compete for their lives is, frankly, a little sick. In an effort to remedy the situation, the nail polish line is back, but this time they will be called Colors From the Capitol. So the oppressive rich and powerful of Panem are releasing a line of nail laquer for your bemusement as you watch the young people fight, murder, and struggle to stay alive. We’ve been trying to come up with some appropriate colors for this line, and we were hoping you might join in with us. Some ideas below....
- Octavia’s Oppression Orange
- Effie’s Emerald Elegy
- You Just Shot a Rat for Food Fuschia
- Tracker Jacker Java
- Avox Amber
- Muttation Mauve
- Wall of Fire
- Tribute Training Teal
- Head Gamemaker Hot Pink
- Resource-Robbing Red
- Quarter Quell Quince
- With the Help of Your Sponsor Silver
- Your Entire District Will Be Carpet-Bombed If You Don’t Comply Blue
What do you think? Did we miss any colors? Feel free to add your own!
