Well, It's finally here. The Hunger Games movie premier and the final installment of my Hunger Games manicure series. The thought process and preparation for this manicure was actually thought of weeks ago and inspired my recent series in the first place. I thought the perfect way to encapsulate the Hunger Games was with the perils and action of the actual games themselves (cuts, burns, scrapes, trackerjacker stings), along with a few key signatures themes of the books themselves. Of course, I had to try to attempt to paint a Mockingjay. I'm definitely no real artist and have sort of self-taught myself painting designs, but I think it turned out as good as I hoped (although I might get some better pictures up, I'm not sure about these...). Enjoy the movie and Happy Hunger Games!
My Wounded Flesh nails were done with a base of Zoya Skye, three coats.
My Mockingjay & Flaming Arrow nails had a base of China Glaze Smoke And Ashes, three coats.
My Smoke Diversion nails were a base of OPI I Have A Herring Problem, three coats.
Seche Vite was my top coat.
