Hunger Games Nail Art Series - Effie Trinket

Hey, hey! :)
The title says it already, but I'm doing a manicure inspired by a character today and it's Effie Trinket! She is like the escort for the District 12 tributes and a real colorful character :D In the trailer you can see her wearing a pink outfit at the reaping and also these nails:
It's a pink base with a golden gradient at the tip. This nails got me started with the whole Nail Art Series thing :) I'm sure once the movie comes out we will see more fun manicures :D 
Here is my recreation of the look: 
I used: Catrice - Big Spender Wanted! and sponged the gradient with P2 - Hyper. I think it's the perfect combination, because Catrice - BSW has golden shimmer in it and it kinda continues the gold at the tip. 
I bumped my middle finger against the table, that's why there is this weird dent in it :P Sorry about that! 

Since this is the first character inspired mani I want to know: who is your favorite character ? Besides Katniss, mine would be Finnick and Cinna. Finnick doesn't appear til book 2 though :) 

Have a good night (or day) and see ya tomorrow! :)

  10. my favorite (minor, very minor) character was Buttercup, the cat. I love the role she plays in the third book :)
    I love Effie, too. One of my favorite parts of the movie was all her outfits. The wardrobe was insane!!
    Love this mani :) Effie would too.

    1. That's true, in the third book he's awesome :D But I imagined him a orange color, certainly not black&white :P
      The wardrobe is one of the best things in the movie :D
      And thank you so much!! :)

  11. Haven't tried sponging yet, but this is something I can see myself copying. I have BSW as well and will surely find a good gold for this.
