11 Hunger Games Nail Designs to Wear to the Mockingjay Part 2 Opening
OK, Hunger Games fans, as you well know, the fourth and final movie in the series hits theaters November 20. And no self-respecting fan should make a premiere-night appearance without a manicure to match. We rounded up 11 of our favorite Hunger Games-inspired nail design looks from YouTube and around the Web so you can deck out your digits appropriately. And may the odds be ever in your favor!
YouTube nail art sensation cutepolish showed this manicure she wore to the opening of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Inspired by heroine Katniss Everdeen's bow, the arrow on her mockingjay pin, and, of course, fire, this nail art is one nearly anyone can pull off.
While her new Hunger Games design is great, we're actually even bigger fans of the movie-inspired design cutepolish came up with last year. Based on the design Katniss wore for her capitol interview, it's a striking flame design that would look best on people with medium-length nails.
Nail artist and DivineCaroline contributor Sammy Tremlin a.k.a. The Nailasaurus debuted this Hunger Games-inspired design more than two years ago before the first movie had even hit theaters, but we love her different-look-for-each finger take on the classic story themes of the 12 districts, mockingjay pin, bow and arrow, the games, and the girl on fire.
This Hunger Games nail art by I Have a Cupcake was based on the book cover art, and features a circular design on a grey background and a standout accent nail with the mockingjay design in yellow. Get your tiniest nail brush out if you want to pull off this design.
YouTube nail artist meliney created this flaming nail design inspired by girl-on-fire Katniss Everdeen. The great thing about this design is it's pretty hard to screw up and you don't have to have a super steady hand.
Nail artist beautopia created Hunger Games nail looks for all 12 of the districts, each one featuring elements that represent the district's hallmark trade. They're all cool, but we're partial to her designs for tech-heavy District 3. No video on this one but the step-by-step directions are pretty solid.
Looking for a Hunger Games nail art look that works for shorty nails? Robin Moses Nail Art created this look with five intricate designs inspired by the book covers and meant to fit nicely on small nails.
If your nails are at the opposite end of the nail-length spectrum, try this Hunger Games design by ArtisticNailArtz. It, too, was inspired by the book cover.
Hunger Games character Effie Trinket made quite a splash in the first movie of the series with her opulent clothes and far-out makeup. Here nails were no exception. In this Effie Trinket-inspired nail look, YouTube nail artist tangledinwishes shows how to create Effie's over-the-top blue nail design.
Effie also sported some spectacular nails during the reaping in the first film. YouTube nail art rock star cutepolish shows how to get this glitzy gold design inspired by the flamboyant character.
As any fan of the series knows, the mockingjay plays a big part in the Hunger Games books and films, serving as a symbol for the rebellion. That's why we love this mockingjay nail design by BeenaBop that features golden glittering mockingjay symbols on gradient painted nails.
