So needless to say I'm sooo excited to see the movie!!! I'm going tomorrow night at 7pm!! And like other bloggers who are crazy about the books, I decided to celebrate the movie premiere with the corresponding mani! I actually borrowed this design from the talented Kayla Shevonne. Or at least I tried to borrow it because the end result is nowhere close to hers!! Blah.. I suck at drawing=( Always have. Actually in elementary school (I grew up in Poland) we had to take art classes and we were graded on the quality of our drawings/paintings, not on our efforts. I always SUCKED at painting but I didn't want to fail the class, so everyday I would stall in class and say I would bring the finished picture the following day. And after school I would ask my talented dad (why didn't I inherit THAT gene???) to draw it for me LOL. So I ended up with an A in the class!! yeah, I know, pretty shitty, but it's also pretty shitty to grade kids based on their talent that they're totally lacking!! So on the very very slim off-chance that my old art teacher is reading this... sorry, I cheated!! =)))
Anyway, for the base of this mani I used Finger Paints Black Expressionism. I freehanded the stripes with China Glaze Awaken (the stripes are supposed to represent the districts). Then I tried to draw a mockingjay on my ring fingers. Oh I drew it alright, but I looked like a picture from my elementary school (and NOT the one painted by my dad haha)!! It was AWFUL!!! Literally like a 2nd grader slapped some paint around. And because I'm well into my 30's (man, that sounds old!! compared to an 8-yr old of course haha), I couldn't possibly pull it off.. So instead of the mockingjay look-alike monstrosity I'm sporting a gorgeous fiery orange, China Glaze Riveting. It's from the Hunger Games collection anyway so it's fitting! Its original name was supposed to be "Fire in Flight" and the color is inspired by the flaming mockingjay, according to the first intended collection.
I kinda like the overall look. It's definitely different from what I'm used to wearing on regular basis!! Oh, and forgive my Frankenstein index finger... it's still scary =))
Damn, I'm talking a lot today. On to the pictures!!
|it's no mockingjay, but it is one of my favorite pins! And it does sorta look like the mockingjay, right?|
So what do you guys think?? Have you seen the movie yet? What did you think?? I can't wait to go tomorrow!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
