Another crappy iphone picture! Sorry guys, last time I swear. But I realized that I wasn’t going to get home in time to take a picture of this manicure and I wanted to post what I was actually going to wear to see the movie. If you haven’t guessed, I’m a major Hunger Games fan/nerd. I first read the books about a year and a half ago and went through all of them in less than a week. When I heard there was a movie coming out, I stalked ever fan page to get a glimpse at the people playing the characters. I just re-read the 1st book in preparation for the movie. I painted my nails China Glaze “Electrify” (click here to see that swatch) for the movie yesterday and it chipped before the day was over. So I had to think fast and came up with a better manicure for the movie. I recently did a video tutorial on how to do glitter ombre nails (click here to see that!), so I figured what better way to represent district 12 than with the coal black polish fading into a firey glitter! I definitely want my nails to represent the Girl on Fire!
I started with China Glaze “Smoke and Ashes” which is the polish meant to represent district 12. Then took a sponge and lightly dabbed China Glaze “Electrify” on the tips. After re-reading the book, Katniss had her nails painted with flames on them at the start of the games and I can’t think of a better way to represent coal burning on my nails than this. This was one coat of Smoke and Ashes and one coat of Electrify, so a very simple and very fast manicure. I love how this turned out and I can’t wait to wear this when I watch the movie.
