Hunger Games Nail Art Series - District 12

Hello, my lovelies!
The request for today was a district manicure or a design inspired by Rue or a mutt.
Well, I really have no idea what I could paint, to represent Rue and I'm still thinking about how to do the mutts. :P Any ideas out there? I'd appreciate it!
So for the first district inspired mani, I chose to represent District 12 :)
Since Cinna, Katniss' stylist, came up with the idea to present her as "the girl on fire" I wanted to do a fire design. But after yesterday's mani I didn't had the patience to do something to difficult and this one is also easier to do for someone, who wants to wear a manicure for the Hunger games, right? :) 
It kinda looks like fire ...or at least like coals on fire :D I used: Essence - Grand-Plié in Black (Ballerina LE), Flormar Crackle G05, P2 Pearl Crackle - Red Volcano and a big fat coat of TC :D
Now let me tell you a secret about layering crackles: Do a coat of TC in between the 2 crackles, so that they can crackle differently, otherwise they will crackle the same way and the first color won't show ... or it all looks like a huge mess. Know what I mean? :D

Aaand only 3 days left ! Omg I can't wait anymore!!! :D
See ya tomorrow! ;)

  5. I've been watching the trailers over and over again too! Lovely representation of district 12! When I suggested Rue, I was thinking something with flowers because of what Katniss does (Lol I know that sounds vague but I didn't want to spoil anything for those that haven't read the books).
