I have to tell you, doing this series is so much fun so far. It's a fun challenge for myself. Though there's very little information in the books about some of the districts, which will make it a little challenging, I think it's fun to come up with something for each one. I plan on making my way through the districts in order and then I have some other designs based on The Hunger Games I'll be adding to the series. In the end, the series will hopefully be pretty sizeable. In the meantime, it's a lot of fun. On to the description!
District 4 in The Hunger Games is home to a ocean-based society. They make fish hooks, they use nets and tridents to fish, and overall it's a somewhat wealthy district. To reflect this rich ocean culture I painted the nails with sea greens, coral red for the, um, red coral, and gave it some gilded accents to reflect the fact that this district is a bit more rich.

Index to pinkie: OPI Hey Vito Is My Car Red-y?, Color Club Sexsea, China Glaze High Hopes, Essie Flirt
OPI Hey Vito, Is My Car Red-y: This is incredibly similar to Sexsea, it's got a definite warm tone to it, making this bright coral look like a retro Hollywood red.
Color Club Sexsea: An easy-to-find and cheap alternative to the OPI Hey Vito, great formula and a perfect seriously vibrant bright coral-red choice for summer.
China Glaze High Hopes: This is more of a sweet mango coral. It's considerably less in-your-face and red than the above two, but it's got a special punch that would be great for less warm-toned people.
Essie Flirt: I thought this one was going to be dupey to the China Glaze by looking at the bottles, but turns out this one is slightly darker and a pinch more pink.

Index to pinkie: China Glaze Peachy Keen, Color Club Coral Cascade, OPI Back to the Beach Peach, Lippmann Daytripper
China Glaze Peachy Keen: There's really not enough pink in this to call it coral, but it looked pretty with the others. Two coats of perfection make it a perfect peach.
Color Club Coral Cascade: This reminds me more of a peach as well, but the added pink (and the name) is why I added this for comparison. Very sheer, but nice.
OPI Back to the Beach Peach: Peach... maybe. I'll call this a blush coral. It requires three coats, but the jelly finish is to die for.
Lippmann Daytripper: A jelly coral that is super bright and gorgeous. Three coats will give you great coverage, and it reminds me of my favorite Chanel Glossimer, Sirop!
