31 Day Challenge 2014: *23*

by - 9/26/2014

The odds are definitely in my favor today... so much so, that I don't really want to take this manicure off tonight! Saying goodbye to my song nails wasn't hard at all last night. But these? I've been wanting to replicate Effie Trinket's reaping nails for so long! Here they are... nails inspired by A MOVIE!

Pink & Gold Glitter Gradient

Hunger Games Manicure

Hunger Games Reaping Nails

Gold & Pink Glitter Gradient

Pink and Gold Reaping Gradient

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SOPI All About Me
Bongo Diva 'Til Dawn
SOPI The Golden Age
SOPI It's Real 18K Gold
1 Coat Confetti Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Finally! I've been wanting to paint my nails like Effie's for a long time, but for whatever reason, I just never got a round to it. But with a little help from the 31 Day Challenge? Done.

Just for reference, here are Effie's nails in The Hunger Games...

Effie Trinket's Reaping Nails

These nails are actually really simple. You don't even need to add glitter to achieve the same look, but we all know that I've got serious glitter issues. Sooooo... rather than just pink and gold, we've got pink and gold with gold and silver glitter and 18K gold flakes.

And about those 18K flakes... I popped into TJ Maxx the other day, and scooped up 3 bottles of SOPI It's Real 18K Gold Top Coat for $2.99 a bottle along with a really pretty scarf! I have been searching for this polish for almost a year, and finally found it!!!

I'm not sure if I'm going to take this mani off tonight or not. I wouldn't mind wearing it for another day, but I'm also pretty excited for the next prompt. My idea for that is really time consuming, and I don't know that I'll have enough time/energy tonight. (#firstworldproblems) So... just a warning! The next prompt in the challenge calls for nails inspired by A BOOK...
