The Digit-al Dozen Does Books: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins


Hey there lovelies!  So I ended up not having time to finish up with book week last week, so I'll be posting this and one more book mani this week instead.

Today's mani is inspired by Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, the second book of The Hunger Games trilogy.  This trilogy is one of my favorite book series ever, its up there with Harry Potter for me.  I could NOT stop reading these books once I started the first one, and I was again left missing my favorite characters when it was over.

This is pretty self explanatory as far as symbolism... I just wanted some more flame nails!  (I've done water marble flame nails, and some flame nails with my dotting tool, so I tried a different technique this time.)


I started off with two coats of Cult Nails You're My Dandy Lion (totally my favorite yellow polish ever).  Next I added the orange, Cult Nails Ay Poppy!, with a dry nail art brush.  Finally, I added the blue, Kiko 336, with the same nail art brush.

I didn't use top coat because I quite enjoyed the texture I was left with.


Now I'm just anxiously awaiting the release of the Catching Fire movie!  (The trailer literally gave me chills when I watched it... I may be obsessed....)

  5. Gorgeous, the fire is amazing. I haven't read the Hunger Games trilogy yet, mainly because I've so many books on the go that I want to wait until I can concentrate on it! x
