Hunger Games nails - Girl on Fire

Okey, so basically EVERBODY has been doing these nails now. I mean really, I'm seeing them everywhere. So I kinda felt like not doing these flame nails, since so many else are doing them, but what the heck. It's not like it's easy to do something original on nails these days anyway...
I went to the premiere of the Hunger Games movie in Oslo yesterday. Now, I hadn't read the books(I know, I know, I shouldn't have seen the movie before I read the book. I promise I'll read the books as soon as I can), but the movie was really awesome. I totally adored the costumes and the makeup, worth seeing it only for that. A bunch of people had even dressed up as people from the Capitol for the premiere! I won't tell you more about the movie here, you'll have to see it for yourself! Over to the nails....

In the book Katniss gets flame design on her nails(I read about on the internet) so that's what most people have been doing on their nails, and that's what I did too. In addition I tried to make the Mockingjay pin too.
When I was done with the design I didn't have time to take pictures, so I decided to wait till I got home. But before I got the chance to take pictures a disaster occurred. I had a small rift on my ringfinger nails, and somehow the nail rifted all the way over! When this happened I literary went "No,no,no,no this ain't happening, this ain't happening!!" But it did happen and the nail with the mockingjay got torn right over. On the pictures I managed to sort of fasten the nail tip back on with a top coat so you can still see the Mockingjay, even though it's kinda fucked up now...

For this I've used china glaze - Papya punch, Isadora-Mellow yellow, Linda Johansen-pumpkin pie as a base, then drew on the flames with a black. The Mocking jay is OPI - Warm and fozzie and Isaoda -gold sparkles

# Are you a Hunger Games fan?
# Do you like this design even though the ringfinger broke?
