Effie Trinket Nails

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!”
