I know I’m really late to the (Hunger) game on this one. I got all 12 polishes in the China Glaze Capitol Colours Collection when they came out this year, but I’d only tried a few of them. Before they disappear into Stashland, I wanted to show you which ones I would actually wear to the office. If you want to see all 12 polishes, visit the links at the end of this post. Here are the four that I think are conservative safe bets:
Dress Me Up (District 8 – Textiles): A safe, pretty, warm, rose creme; nothing we haven’t seen before. Yawn. But I’m a closet boring, mature polish lover.
Hook & Line (District 4 – Fishing): A strangely neutral shade, this polish is a pewtery grey frost that leans on the taupe side. I had some trouble with brushstrokes, but my co-workers could care less about that. This is a fun departure from the office norm.
Fast Track (District 6 – Transportation): This is a beige polish with a micro gold shimmer. It’s a nice alternative to boring neutral. I’m always happy to find non-creme work polish. This is two coats, but it really could have used a third.
Foie Gras (District 10 – Livestock): This is a brown creme with a purple tone to it. I used it on the tips for my Mint Chocolate Tip mani. I had trouble getting even full coverage though. I like this one, but it would definitely be better in the Fall.
I used Agro (District 11 – Agriculture), a metallic olive green, in the Floating Hues Ruffle mani a few days ago.
