The Hunger Games Nail Art #2

Good afternoon!

Are you all excited for the opening of The Hunger Games today? I sure am! I'm going to see the 6:30pm IMAX showing and I can't wait! I know some of you may have gone to the midnight showing last night so please, no spoilers!

Today's nail art is basically a recreation of the cover of the book. This design has been done a number of times but I think the first place I saw it was this tutorial by IHaveACupcake on youtube. I did the grey circular shapes (which, in my mind, represent the districts and their connectedness, but I could be totally off the mark) on most of my nails and then I did the mockingjay pin as an accent nail.

Enjoy! And May the Odds Be Ever In Your Favor!
(Am I a total dork for just saying that? Probably.)

Products used:
CND Stickey Base Coat
China Glaze - Liquid Leather (base)
China Glaze - Recycle (circular shapes)
China Glaze - Lemon Fizz (mockingjay pin)
OPI - Bling Dynasty (highlights on mockingjay pin)
Seche Vite Top Coat


  1. These are fabulous! I love how you did the highlights on the mockingjay pin

  2. Oh my, this is FABULOUS!!! I don't like my nails 'overdone' and this is perfect!!! I hope u don't mind I will borrow this design for tomorrow?? I'm gng to see the movie tomorrow night!!

  3. This is like the design I did, only yours look way better lol.
    Amazing job!

  4. Great job! These are an amazing representation of the book cover!

  5. This is fantastic! I love that you did the circles from the book cover. And that mockingjay pin is perfection!
    Absolutely fantastic job :)

  6. I also think that this grey circles represents districts :) You did your nails so much better than this person in tutorial!

  7. fantastic job there on the logo

  8. It looks so good! I'm still trying to decide how to do my nails for when I see it tomorrow.

  9. This is amazing!!!!!! It looks exactly like it does on the book cover. This may be my favorite HG mani I've seen thus far!

  10. WOW best inspired manicure I've seen! :D
    I especially love the mockingjay!

  11. This is so cool! I think it's the best Mockinjay I've seen on nails :) I never would've thought to use Lemon Fizz, but it looks perfect!

  12. wow! amazing mani! Very well done!

  13. You did such an amazing job! The detail is great! :)

  14. Really did a great job on these designs...such a steady hand! Creative bird too. Impressed. I wonder if Hunger Games will end up being such a hit of a movie that it becomes a cult movie like Rocky Horror where folks come dressed up like a character in the movie?

    1. I actually saw a few people last night with pink Effie Trinket-esque wigs on!

  15. I love this, its different from alot of other Hunger Games manis I've seen.
    You are SO not a total dork for saying that, I had an awkward guy sit down next to me when I saw it and he said hello so what did I say to him? Hello, Happy Hunger Games! I'm still not sure if that's entirely dorky or not lol.

  16. This mani made my heart skip a beat!! Amazing.... dead on. Prob my fav hunger games mani I've seen!
