Effie's Hunger Game Inspired Nails

Hi there - I have another Hunger Games mani for you today! If you have seen the movies... and have a nail obsession like myself - then I am sure you noticed Effie's nails in the movie! I was in love with her nails at the beginning of the movie when she was drawing names for the reaping, and I have been wanting to try them ever since I saw it. Below is a picture I found on Yahoo! images of Effie's nails, which inspired my mani today.

So, here is the version that I came up with!

My nails aren't the same shape as hers, which I think takes away from it a bit and it's not as soft of a gradient in between the colors. But regardless, I really like the color combo. To do this mani I started with two coats of Milani Cool Vibe with a coat of Seche Vite on top, below.

Then I took a piece of a faux sea sponge and used Ulta High Roller to sponge on the tips. Then I put a coat of Seche Vite on top to seal everything in. Thanks for looking!
