|he result was Panem, a shining capitol ringed by thirteen districts, which brought peace and prosperity to its citizens. Then came the Dark Days, the uprising of the districts against the Capitol. Twelve were defeated, the thirteenth obliterated.|
District Thirteen is the elusive district which, according to the Capitol was annihilated and the original reason for the Hunger Games. If you have only seen the films or have not yet finished reading the second book in the series...get ready for a spoiler!! District Thirteen is actually a fully functional, operational district. Their industry is: graphite mining and nuclear power. District 13 was never destroyed, they just moved underground. They made a treaty with the Capitol since they had access to nuclear power and they agreed not to destroy the Capitol if they were left alone. The President of the District is Alma Coin. District Thirteen plays a big role in the rebellion of the districts of Panem, and ultimately, ends up having it's own surprises. These nails are sort of based on the idea of fire out of the ashes. Katniss alights the fire of the rebellion in the district when she arrives. This is also the very first thing I did when I got my China Glaze Colors of the Capitol collection! It makes such a nice contrast and it's very easy to do. Since there is no China Glaze color for this district, I've used Stone Cold and Electrify to do this mani. I hope you're all enjoying the series! There is ONE post left in this series.
I have another VERY exciting series to come after this...I will leave you simply with this as a hint: There will be six girls, six designs, and six seasons. And if you ask me...it's the best six seasons of television to ever exist. :)
Next in the series: The Capitol
