Even if you have not seen the Hunger Games Movie yet, you have most likely seen Effie Trinket’s eccentric nail art buzzing about the web. There are about a billion (well maybe I am exaggerating a teeenie bit) web pages dedicated on how to achieve Effie’s nail looks. I just found a photo from the scene in the movie and worked on recreating it.
I used two coats of China Glaze Ahoy and using a make-up sponge create a glitter gradient with Orly Ingenue. China Glaze Ahoy (reviewed here) has a beautiful gold sparkle that works beautifully with Ingenue (reviewed here). Ingenue is a relatively thin glitter so it is perfect for creating a gradient, I just had to sponge about five thin layers.
“Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!”
