District Five: Power

10:35 AM

"Electric, solar, and nuclear - District 5 harnesses the energy of the earth and the sky in order to power our great nation."

District Five's industry is power.  They harness solar, electric, and nuclear power for Panem.  The only known tribute from the district is Foxface and whether you've seen the film or read the books there isn't much to say about Foxface.  I wasn't entirely sure where I wanted to go with the art for this district.  I had a lot of ideas but on the day I sat down to do it I had an epiphany. Sadly, the full effect of this epiphany is lost in the picture BUT if you have the China Glaze polish for this district I fully encourage you to take it into the sunlight.  It sparkles in a way that really makes your nails look alive.  I started with a base of Barry M Gold Foil for these.  You can't really see it but I wanted to be sure that the glitter would be fully covering the nail and it's always better to start with a similar base just in case!  Then I added two coats of Electrify.  After seeing the way it lit up in the sun I decided to go simple and do 'lines' of power.  The black was a stark contrast to the glitter and when I moved my hands in the light it really did look electric!! I wish it had picked up better on camera.  I need to work on that for next time! :) 

I hope you're all enjoying the series so far!

  1. Bee, I am LOVING these! I have just finished the second book but as soon as I get my hands on 3 it will be devoured as well. Can't wait to see what you do for the rest of the districts! Transportation is going to be hard I think. And 9 is Factories. I guess I am just not imaginative, but I cannot guess how you will do it!
