Another little fact about me is that I LOVE TO READ!!! I grew up in a tiny town with nothing ever to do in the winter so I discovered reading and I immersed myself in the worlds created by authors.
About a year ago I read the Hunger Games trilogy. I’m pretty sure I finished all three books in one weekend because I just couldn’t put them down. It was also impossible to just stop at the first book. It was more than impossible to stop after reading Catching Fire. To say I was exciting about the Catching Fire movie is an understatement. This book was my favorite book out of all three and I was really hoping that they would do the book justice at the movie theater. The first movie was great so I had high hopes for this one.
The movie just came out on Friday, and my fiance and I had to go see it! My mother in law was nice enough to watch the kids so we could get out. It was really nice, we haven’t had a “date” in a few months so on top of the movie being fantastic,being able to spend some alone time was equally as fantastic.
In honor of the movie, I had to do a nail design! I was inspired by the cover of catching fire – black with fire on it and the mocking jay. I wanted to do something simple yet sparkly to represent fire and the glitter of the capital.
I began with a black base and applied red, orange and gold glitter to represent fire. I ADORE how these came out! The top picture is the a glossy topcoat and below that is with a matte topcoat. At first I liked the matte version but the more I look at it, I’m like meh. The very last picture is a close up which really shows the beauty of these nails!
