Today's Hunger Games mani centers on the capitol.   The Capitol is the wealthy, flashy, city which all the districts work to maintain. It is also the only major city to be mentioned in the series. It is thought to be located in the northwestern section of the former United States of America, seemingly in the Rocky Mountains. It is likely that it is in the current day state of Colorado, Utah, or Montana. Residents of the capitol dress in very outrageous fashion, even dying their skin and wearing various wigs.  These nails are based on the nails that Effie Trinket famously wears during The Reaping in the films.  Since there is no color in the China Glaze collection to represent the Capitol, I had to choose my own! I started with a base of China Glaze Wicked Style, which was not only fitting color wise, but also a VERY fitting name for the nail art!!  Then I sponged Orly Luxe lightly on the tips and up to about the halfway point of the nail.  These are really fun because the amount of gold flashes differently in different lighting ranging from very evident (as shown above) to just a glimmer.  I hope you've all enjoyed the series!! I have something REALLY exciting for you coming up.  Another series!! This one is going to include some other bloggers and it's based on something I REALLY REALLY REALLY love.  So I can't wait to share it with you. Stay tuned...

Thanks for following!!
