Happy Hunger Games!!!

I CAN'T BELIEVE TODAY IS FINALLY HERE! I have been dying to see this movie for MONTHS! I'm almost as excited for The Hunger Games as I was for Harry Potter this past summer. And just like what happened with HP, I was up until 11PM last night finishing my nails for the HG premiere today. Poor planning at it's finest! Thankfully, I was able to come do something totally kick ass!


I started out with two coats of Zoya Ibiza for a nice inky-night-sky look. I know everybody is focusing on how Katniss had flames painted on her nails before the Games, but I was thinking of a specific scene in the book. Gold star for you if you can guess which one! After Ibiza was dry, I took a paint brush and brushed Zoya Purity (so that my other colors would stand out off the dark blue better) starting from my cuticles and flowing up the nails, trying to mimic flames. Lastly, I brushed China Glaze Lighthouse, Riveting, and Zoya Sooki on top of Purity. It's fierce! I hope you all like this as much as I do! Oh, and how do you like that little nubby ring nail I've got there? I got a little too friendly with my nail file a few days ago. :P

I don't want to seem ridiculous but I haven't heard about the HUNGER GAMES book here, in France, until now that I read nail's blog lol ! So I can't associate this mani to the story but I think it's perfect though!

  19. Do you have fake nails on? The paint is perfect around the cuticle! How do you do it?!!

    1. No fakes here! :) I've gotten pretty good at painting with all the practice I have, but I also take a small brush and dip it in acetone and swipe along my cuticle to get a nice smooth edge there.
