My Hunger Games Manicure!

Today I ma going with my friends to see the Hunger Games, and I am so excited.  I've read Book 1 and Book 2, and am currently struggling with Book 3.  It's just not as exciting as the first 2 books, but I am "hell bound to finish.:)

So here is my manicure, super easy since ya'll know I am not good at nail art...or maybe you don't know, because I never show it, because it sucks, LOL!




























I used China Glaze "Liquid Leather", "Mega Bite", and from the Hunger Games Collection "Electrify".



























I started off with 2 layers of Liquid Leather (except the accent nail), then added "Electrify" at the tips, to give it a "glitter gradient effect." I see a couple bald spots, which tells me I should have used 3 coats of liquid leather, but I was so excited to see how this was going to turn out, I got lazy and didn't want to do it, Oh well! :P

For the accent nail, I did 1 coat of "Mega Bite" from the Tronica Collection, and then 2 coats of "Electrify".



























In order to smooth out the glitter, I used 1 coat of Gelous and 1 coat of Seche Vite to dry it all. :) Easy peasy!















Happy Hunger Games!

Pin It!

Absolute amazing! Now I regret that I didn't buy Electrify... I thougt I'll never wear it - but in this combination it's pretty cool! So angry that I can't buy it here in Germany.

Very pretty!!! I have been so obsessed with the indie polishes on etsy and Layla Hologram that I forgot about CG's Hunger Games line. I NEED Electrify after seeing your awesome mani!!!

@Nickeeschickee- Yes gelous, comes off with regular polish remover :) It's very necessary if you wear glitters :)
