District Two: Masonry

8:15 AM

"Our nation would be nothing without District 2's superb stonework. It builds and fortifies our cities and its citizens are known individually for their strength."

District Two's industry is mining. It is also the location of the Capitol's military base known as "The Nut".  The Nut is actually carved out of a stone mountain and it plays a key role in the unfolding of the Hunger Games and the uprising of the districts.  Known tributes include: Enobaria, Brutus, and Lyme.  Since so much of the basis of this district plays on their industry of rock and stone and strength I wanted to do something that would reflect that.  These aren't the prettiest nails per say but I think they look very stone/metal like.  It took me forever to come up with an idea for this and as I was perusing the web I came across these nails which seemed to fit the theme perfectly for me.  I know that stone obviously doesn't rust but I think the rawness and the texture of it were all too fitting. I hope you all enjoy them!!  


Base coat on all nails is China Glaze Stone Cold.  I used a mixture of China Glaze Cross Iron 360, Riveting and OPI Pros and Bronze to sponge the top and then sponged on Essie Matte About You topcoat.

  2. That's cool! But when I think of District 2, I think of the Peacekeepers in their white outfits

    1. I think a lot of these depend on whether you read the books, saw the movies, or both! It's something I'll cover in my Capitol mani!
