Fun Nail Friday

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMG, the day is finally here! The Hunger Games is finally in theaters! And of course, yours truly has gathered some of the finest Hunger Games inspired manicures from around Panem for your enjoyment.

Feast your eyes on these lovely selections (no tessarae downpayment required):

Holy girl on fire! L. brings the HEAT in this mani. Katniss doesn’t stand a chance!

Triangles, gunmetal, weapons, I can’t think of a mani that is any more Panem. It looks like this girl has found love in a hopeless place. How DO you do it, LDL?

Nicole took a page out of Cinna’s stylebook with her take on this Hunger Games mani, which, let me just say, is on FIYAH. Wish I could wear a dress made of this into the arena!

Holy Trackerjacker sting, I think I’m obsessed with this. Game on tributes, this mani is nothin’ to mess with.

Lastly, I went all the way out to District 4 to bring you this ocean-inspired manicure. It’s got seashells and golden kelp galore. Rumor has it that Finnick Odair himself has commissioned me to paint him a more masculine version for his debut in the  arena.

Enjoy the 74th Annual Hunger Games, and if the odds are in your favor, see you at the Quarter Quell! And remember to follow @District12Diva and @PeetasLostLeg on Twitter for the very best scoop from the Seam!


Beauty Tips from the Capitol

Since “The Hunger Games” is taking over the world in just 52 days, it would behoove us all to strive to meet the Capitol’s demands for looking our best. Style icon and District 12 escort Effie Trinket takes the time to explain these things to us on the new (and Capitol approved) Web site Capitol Couture.

Effie also wants to make sure your nails will be on point. She’s released some nail tips and propaganda, and to no ones surprise, District 12 ranks last in terms of nail care. No offense to all you D-Twelvers, but maybe you’d all get some more Capitol love and tessarae if you just start acting like you care about yourselves. Coal mines or not, it is just rude to have dirty nails. RUDE.

To help with this, China Glaze will release a line of polishes themed to the movie soon, all Trinket-approved, I’m sure!

While we’re on the Hunger Games topic, make sure to head on over to Twitter and follow the hysterical @District12Diva, whose sarcastic and witty tweets about life in the Seam are sure to brighten even the darkest Panem day.

May everlasting beauty be ever in your favor!

Calling All Tributes!

For those of you who can’t get enough of Suzanne Collin’s ginormous hit “The Hunger Games,” you’re in luck. Not only can you read the books over and over and pretend that you’re Gale’s secret girlfriend– I mean…whatever. Anyway, China Glaze is releasing a limited edition line of 12 polishes, all themed around this kooky love triangle and Panem, the messed up dystopian society that the Games take place in.

With names like “Coal Hearted”, “Primrose”, “Fire in Flight”, & “Rebel,” these polishes are sure to ignite the fangirl in all of us. Hopefully these aren’t going to fly off the shelves in a ridiculous fashion, like how OPI’s Katy Perry/Crackle line did. For those of you who are hoping to secure this collection, I have just one thing to say to you. May the odds be ever in your favor.
