I finished reading the Hunger Games trilogy earlier this year and soon found out that China Glaze was coming out with a collection of nail polish based on each of the districts within the book. I have never owned a China Glaze polish, but I was anxiously waiting for this collection so that I could wear District 12's Smoke and Ashes to the movie premiere. Before that, I never really wore nail polish because it would chip so easily on my flimsy nails.
Then one night I was watching Who Do You Think You Are? with Reba McIntire and I noticed her nails were painted black. This sparked an interest and grabbed some old black nail polish and started painting my nails as I finished watching the show. The next day I played around some more and added a sheer and glittery polish to it which made it look like a metallic gray and I realized you can achieve different looks by layering different polishes. So cool! Taking it one step further, I added some stripes and dots and created this look:
So this was my first manicure in my nail art adventure.
