Catching Fire Two Hand Manicure

     Tonight, I am going to go see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (for the first time) and I had planned on seeing it a lot sooner but life got in the way (as it tends to do). But anyway I designed this manicure last summer after reading the books at my friend Marcie's insistence. Which I actually liked (Who knew?). And since everyone asks which team I'm on I'll tell you I'm on the non-team "I Think Teams Are Stupid Team" It's so high school IMO (Sorry). I'm a grown ass woman I don't pick teams. However I will tell you my favorite characters are Cinna and Peeta, and (obviously) Katniss. So without any further blathering on my part, here's my Catching Fire manicure:

   So there you have it, my Catching Fire two hand manicure. What do you guys think? I'm rather pleased with myself actually. It was crazy complicated and planned well in advance I used images from the book (pearl, dandelion, Snow's rose, etc) as well as the movie trailers (Effies Dress, Mocking Jay, Girl on fire flames, etc). I really hope you guys like this manicure. And please for the love of all that is holy don't ask me how I did it. Just appreciate the result and be thankful that you didn't have to put in the work to achive this look. Also if you comment below about the book or movie don't spoil it for anyone, no who dies, no who lives, no plot twists, no ruined endings, no changes from the book, nothing that may ruin it for someone who hasn't read the books or seen the movie. I am a stickler for not ruining things, I may never forgive you if you ruin an ending. Also I monitor comments before they get posted and I will delete it before you can ruin it for anyone else so don't bother. Other than that comment away. Now that I have talked about this manicure enough for now, I'm off to see the film. So until next time, stay classy, and stay polished.
