Hunger Games Nail Art Series - The Capitol

Where should I start ? I adore the Hunger Games books and I can't wait for the movie to come out!! I'm obsessed with this... I read the 3 books in 6 days, although I had classes and a lot of studying to do, ... oh well :D 
So I asked on my Facebook-page if I should do a Nail Art Series inspired by HG and I got only positive feedback! To be honest - I would have done it anyway :D I have 16 designs, that I came up with last Thursday during class =)) Let's start with the first one, so ...
Let the Hunger Games Nail Art Series begin !!

I thought doing the Capitol logo first would be a good start, since it's like the capital city of Panem. I think this manicure also was the hardest of them all. Here is the inspiration: 
I tried to fit the whole logo on the nail, but I didn't manage to do it, so I chose to paint only the eagle. 
I used 2 coats of NC Matte, Essence - Mysterious Black for the lines and an Essence Nail Art Pen for the eagle. I was so excited about posting it, that I didn't had the patience to let it dry and add a TC afterwards without smudging the design :D So there only is TC on the other nails :P 
To answer your question: Yes, it took me long to do this =)) But it was worth it! 
The other nails are just white with the black lines at the tip, which is inspired by the outfits of the Peacekeepers, a police force controlled by the Capitol.

I hope you like this idea of the Nail Art Series and let me know what you think about it!
Also: are you as excited as I am about the movie? :D

What do you wanna see next? Nails inspired by a district or by a main character ?

  4. Ok I'm insanely excited about this! I'm reading the second book right now. I would love to see a mani based on a district. Or maybe a mani for Rue.
