District Twelve: Mining

7:00 AM

One of the outer districts, this is nonetheless a crucial one. These brave and hardy workers descend deep into the earth each day to mine the coal that keeps our nation running

District Twelve's industry is mining. Specifically coal mining. They are also one of the poorest, most ridiculed districts in the nation of Panem. Located in the Appalachian Mountains, they have a population of fewer than 10,000 people.  Obviously since the main characters from the book are from this district, there is a TON of information on it.  It's separated into four main areas: The Hob, The Seam, The Victors Village, and the merchants section. Katniss and Gale are from The Seam whereas Peeta was from the merchants section.  The Seam is the poorest part of the district and the things Katniss learns from living there help her greatly in her round of the Hunger Games.  The China Glaze color for this collection is called Smoke and Ashes. It's a gorgeous color; deep black with green and gold shimmer.  I would have much preferred Stone Cold as 12's color though, being it looks almost exactly like a piece of coal.  For this district I chose to do some coals over a fire for my accent nail.  The intention with the other nails was smoke on a night sky but they ended up looking like coal briquettes themselves!  Either way I think it worked out!!  I used Riveting and Stone Cold to complete the mani. :)

Only two more Hunger Games posts left!!

Next up is District 13: ???
