Unless you’ve been living under a rock with no internet access recently, you’ll probably be vaguely aware that The Hunger Games hits cinemas this weekend. So of course I had to pay ‘tribute’ on my nails! I’m going to see it on Friday and hopefully I’ll love it as much as I did the books.
I did some Hunger Games nail art back in July last year while I was reading the books which you can see here. I considered re-hashing that design with a few updates but decided to create my imagining of Katniss’ flame manicure that she wears for her pre-games interview with the addition of a Mockingjay pin.
I started with a base coat of Barry M White and then used a nail art brush to freehand the flames. I started with the red (La Femme Cherry Red) on the outside part, then used orange (No7 Tangy) and finally yellow (George Buttercup Shine) right in the centre. I added a few strokes of Rimmel Daisy Chain in the direction of the flames for a little glowy highlight. Finally I painted W7 Black around the edge and finished with a few top coats of NYC.
The Mockingjay was painted with Barry M Gold Foil and a nail art brush.
