Divergent Series: Dauntless Fire

These are the nails I wore when I went to see the movie. I thought it was really good! The casting was really great, and even though they changed some things I totally understood why they did. I think the ending was quite good, although I have yet to read the next book, so that opinion might change. And Theo James...lovely as per usual.

But it was cool to see so much of Chicago in the film. They kept most of the references in that only people who live or have visited Chicago would know. I thought that was a nice touch. But on to the nails!

Divergent Series: Dauntless

I'm so excited for the Divergent movie to come out. I've only read the first book, but I've got the next two sitting on my bookshelf right now. When I was reading the book I imagined that the Dauntless faction would wear a ton of leather, not only because it's black and looks cool, but also because during a fight it can add a bit of protection. So I tried out Chalkboard Nail's perforated leather technique and it worked perfectly. I also used the spatter technique to create some blood spatter on my ring finger. I think these nails really embody the Dauntless vibe.
