Hunger Games Flame Nails

Hello All,

I got inspired by Cute polish and her awesome Hunger Games nail tutorial so I decided to try it my self. IT is to represent the nails that Katniss wears.

Here is the link to her tutorial on her You Tube page: Cute Polish. This is the first time I have ever done any free hand drawing so be nice to me. LOL

In her tutorial she used a black but I decided to use China Glaze Store Cold from the Hunger Games Collection. I wish I could have left it be matte but I need to put top coat to seal in the flames decal.

I used a ziploc bag to free hand the flame designs on so that I could peel them off and apply to nails. This way my other hand will not look like a 6 year old drew on them.

I used a white first to create a base that will make the colors pop. The red is OPI Kennebunk-Port, the orange is China Glaze Breakin' and the yellow is China Glaze Lighthouse.

I let these dry for a few hours because they were "interesting" to paint and I did not want to mess up at all in case not dry. :-)

I found it easier to peel off the plastic from the fire tip end since I small amount to try to get up.

All you have to do now is place on your nails  and then put a topcoat on to seal the design in place!

Some people may feel that flame on every nail is too much so an idea is to just put on the ring fingers. 

I hope you all enjoyed this design! 

I can't wait till the movie tomorrow and I will be all ready with my 
Tribute Tee, Mocking Jay necklace and pin!! 
My friend Tiffany is even gonna braid my hair before we go to movie!
Yeah, I'm one of those crazy people. :-D

                                     Gift from my buddy Tiffany!
Thanks again!

I hope you all have a great rest of your day and as always, thank you for reading!



  1. That's cool! I didn't realize you made the flames to act like stickers. That's pretty nifty! Enjoy the movie tomorrow and DON'T tell me anything about it!

    1. Thank you!
      Yes Ma'am! I think its a cool idea to draw on there instead of winging it on nail and knowing my lack of patience....start cursing at my nails. lol

      I promise I will not spoil anything for you and say anything!

  2. Those are sooo pretty! I don't think putting a flame on each nail is too much; it is perfect!!! Really you blow my mind with these designs and how you do them lol!!
