District Six: Transportation

10:27 AM

"Our hovercraft, our high-speed trains, and our cargo trains come to us from District 6. Ironically, the citizens here have little love for travel."

District Six is the Transportation district.  There isn't a whole lot of information on this district in the books and it's so unimportant in the scheme of the story that it's tributes aren't even given names.  Given that and the fact that this is another color match-up fail from China Glaze, I was a bit stumped at first as to what I should do for my art.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Fast Track as a color. It's absolutely stunning: neutral, sparkly, great coverage.  It just has nothing to do with transportation.  I wish it had been something darker or murkier.  But I digress.  I got to looking at pictures online and ended up loving the look of the rail trains.  They all have these little square windows and then these two stripes which run the length of the cars.  Even better is that my nails fit perfectly into the scheme of a train by creating their own little cars!  So this is my take on that. The thumb is the lead car, with the big dark windows, and the other nails represent the other cars with the pinkie bringing up the rear. :)  I created the stripes with China Glaze Mahogany Magic and Dress Me Up and the windows with Stone Cold.  Then I top coated the whole thing with Seche Vite. :)  I hope you're enjoying the series and thanks for following!

  3. Love it! This is one of my favorite polishes from the collection, but it's a bummer that they don't really match up to their names/districts.

    1. There was a lot of legal drama which prompted them to change the "theme" and names of all the polishes. That's why they no longer seem to be entirely appropriate!
