Caesar Flickerman...all about blue!


one of my favorite scenes: Peeta confesses his love for Katniss to Caesar

Caesar Flickerman, the host of The Hunger Games interview show.  He is famous for interviewing game tributes  & turning any conversation into something positive.  So far, I've done a mani for Katniss (Girl On Fire), Effie Trinket & made a franken inspired by the nightlock berries in the book.  So this most recent mani is inspired by Caesar's glitzy look in the 1st book/movie: blue & glittery.  He has blue hair, blue eyebrows, to match his twinkling blue suit. So I did a blue on blue french tip mani.  I achieved this look with some China Glaze colors.  I did 2 coats of OPI Nail Envy, 1 coat of SV, Nailene Nail Tip strips, 2 coats of ChG "Shower Together" (I would love to save water & shower with Peeta) on the tips, peel off strips, 1 coat of SV, another set of nail tip strips at an angle, 2 coats of ChG "Dorothy Who?", peel off strips, use dotting tool to make black dots, then a 3rd & last coat of SV.  Haha yes this was a lot of coats going on & lots of Seche Vite. But I needed it to be dry each time I put the tip strips on.
