I went to see The Hunger Games last night with a couple girlfriends and two of us – myself and my friend Lauren – did some ‘Hunger Games’ inspired nails. Neither of us got really fancy, but neither of us have really long nails either.
My personal Hunger Games inspired nail was a black base with orange tips. Didn’t come out as great as I would have liked (the orange) but I was using a Sally Hansen nail art pen and it didn’t work like I thought it would. Next time I think I will just pick up a skinny nail brush and do it with some tape instead.
My friend Lauren went for a glam gold called “Electrify” from China Glaze. She called them her “girl on fire” nails and I have to agree!
One look I really loved in the actual movie was Effie Trinket’s ‘reaping’ nails. I wish I knew what exact colors they used to achieve the pretty light plum and gold!
The look was one that could easily be copied – unlike her other nail look in the movie!
One blogger recreated Effie’s reaping nails look beautifully! She used Zoya Tru as the base, then used a makeup sponge to dab on Piggy Polish Gold on the tips, then she added NYX Girls Gilded Glitter for a little bit bigger chunks of glitter. Beautiful!
