Item details

Effie's Trinket – Designed by Heather of Drowning in Polish (http://heatherdrowninginpolish.blogspot.com/)
A bright pinky-purple linear holo with a subtle pink shimmer inspired by The Hunger Games

Heather writes:
When I asked Amy to create a custom for me, I only knew the color I wanted and that it reference The Hunger Games in some way. While she was working on it she gave me a hint that it was a "very Effie Trinket or Ceasar Flickerman color". To me that meant bright and fabulous! Once I saw the polish, I was blown away. It is spot on what I wanted. We threw around a few names but ultimately Amy came up with Effie's Trinket - perfect!
Its certainly a color Effie would wear on her nails, dress and hair. But why Effie? Because Effie says things like "I am smiling at you even though you are aggravating me", "that is mahogany", "chins up, smiles on" and "Ladies first" with such flare. Because Effie wears bright clothes and crazy wigs, in true capital fashion, and yet she still cares about her tributes, unlike anyone else in the capital. She affectionately calls Katniss and Peeta "my two victors" and tells them "they both deserve so much better" before the Quarter Quell. And because the books would not be the same without Effie. She joins the rebellion for Katniss. Because Effie is awesome.

Returns & exchanges

In the case of a breakage in shipping, please contact me with a photo of the damage and I will replace (or refund, if the polish is not available for some reason) the polish and shipping costs.

If you have a problem with the formulation, please let me know. Polish is an interesting medium to work with. Sometimes ingredients do weird things and while I do thoroughly test my ingredients, it's impossible for me to replicate every polish storage situation. I recommend storing nail polish in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

Additional policies

My customs waiting list is very long right now and I'm not taking any additional custom orders right now. I welcome any and all general conversation about nail polish and polish creation.

I will happily discuss wholesale accounts with anyone interested!
