Last month it was reported that American International Industries had filed a $10 million lawsuit against Lionsgate for breach of contract. Now it looks like the two parties are playing nice as Lionsgate has recently put out a press release announcing that a nail polish line would be released after all.
China Glaze (a subsidiary of American International Industries) was to develop a line of 12 shades based on the 12 Districts of Panem. Now, according to the press release, the shades will be based on the Capitol and the line is now called “Colors from the Capitol.”
For those who haven’t read the books, the Capitol is where Katniss and Peeta are sent for their make-overs and interviews before going into the Games. It’s a place that exudes extravagance in food, fashion and entertainment. The citizens of the Capitol wear outlandish costumes, elaborate wigs and use and extraordinary amounts of make-up. Since the nail polish line will be based on that area, it seems fair to expect some outlandish colors. The original 12 colors that were “leaked” will not be used according to Lionsgate, and new colors should be announced soon.
The collection will be available in stores on March 1, 2012, just in time for fans to adorn themselves before the movie’s release on 23rd. Below is part of the official press release from Lionsgate:
LIONSGATE AND CHINA GLAZE ANNOUNCE “COLORS FROM THE CAPITOL”
SANTA MONICA, CA (December 9, 2011) – Lionsgate announces that it has partnered with worldwide beauty brand China Glaze on a collection of nail polish to debut in conjunction with the March 23, 2012 release of THE HUNGER GAMES.
In keeping with the powerful themes and messages of the story, the collection of nail polish will be inspired exclusively by one of the book’s distinct settings- the Capitol of the nation of Panem. Awash in lavish fashion, food, and entertainment, Capitol citizens enjoy extreme cosmetics and body modifications, bold wigs, and outlandish costumes.
The collection of colors will be available at specialty beauty retailers beginning on March 1, 2012.
