Hunger Games Nail Art Series - District 4

Long time no see! I'm sorry for not posting, but I wanted to wear that cool lightning mani for a few days and I also had an anatomy test today, and I had no time to do anything. Good news: I did pretty good on the test and I now have some free time again, yay! :D 
Today I have another favorite mani of mine from the whole HG Series, and it's inspired by District 4! 
Yep, it's the District of Fishing :) I immediately knew what I wanted to paint! I did some sponging with different blues, to create kind of a mermaid look and then added some fishnet along the sides to the tips. One of my favorite characters, Finnick Odair, is from this district, but we'll have to wait for the second movie to see him in action ;) 
You may know that I adore blue polishes, so this manicure is like the best thing I had on my nails for a while! I love it so much! :D The 3 different polishes don't show as much as I would have liked. In real life I can see flashes of green, so it looks more like a mermaid but on the photos, mhm.. not so much! 
I used: O.P.I Swimsuit .. Nailed it! (again :D), Avon - Sequined Turquoise and Accessorize - Mermaid (how appropiate :D). Now these 3 polishes are my all time favorite nail polishes! I almost forgot: for the fishnet I used Essence Silver Surfer Tip Painter.
EDIT
I have to add another and better picture of this mani, now that I have daylight :P

Also a little bonus pic: 
I was playing around with my cam and of course Kiara had to be my photo model :D

Thanks for reading and may the odds be ever in your favor! ;)

  6. OMG I love your cat!!! Can she come live with me/?????? Actually had a pure bred himalayan long hair like this cat-and swore I'd never do another long haired cat. I used to get him shaved to a crew cut once or twice a year! Anyway, love this mani too!

    1. She really is! :D
      Saint Birman cats look exactly like her, but they have white paws. She's a Ragdoll ;)

  10. Kiara is so beautiful!! She looks just like my Sophie who was actually a Birman crossed with a black moggy but she looked just like a seal point ragdoll!!!! Her face wasn't quite so sweet looking as your kitty though!!! She looks super innocent! Sophie had more of a snobby 'I'm out of your league' look about her! It was that Birman attitude :)
