District Four: Fishing

7:32 AM

"Do you like seafood? Shrimp and crabmeat? Often overlooked, District 4 plays an essential role, bringing us the bounty of the sea. These citizens are adept with nets and tridents, and can swim like fish themselves."


District Four's industry is fishing.  The tributes from District Four actually play a rather large role in the Hunger Games series as well. Who can forget Finnick?  I loved him, I think his story was sadly underwritten.  But that's another story!  District Four is a wealthier district of Panem and tributes generally volunteer for the Hunger Games there.  There are three known winners of the Hunger Games from this district: Finnick Odair, Annie Cresta and Mags.   I can't be sure (it's been a few weeks since I read these and now with the film it's hard to keep track!) but I believe that's more than the other districts.   For this district I wanted to do something that was definitely fishing related but not so obviously fish or ocean.  So I used the China Glaze Capitol Color Hook & Line for the base and then I stamped OPI Skull & Glossbones over it. The effect is a subtle scale-like pattern which is quite obviously fishlike but also a bit subtle since the colors are very similar.  To add some shimmer (since fishies are normally wet and shiny!) I added Barry M Silver Sparkle to the top. Voila! Fish!  I'm going to point out as well that while I LOVE District Four, the China Glaze color for the district was a real dissapointment.  I'm pretty certain this is due to the change of theme the collection underwent after a legal snafu but it's still a let down.  The color has little to do with fishing or water (unless the water is dirty) and it's also a pearly finish which ended up being very streaky and icky on my nail.  That said, I love it worn this way so it will probably be great for art. :)  Thanks for following! I hope you're enjoying the series!

  2. That's so awesome. That was my least favorite polish in the Hunger Games line too but this is a fun way to wear it.
