Mish Mash Challenge - Hot. Fire nails!

Hello there!

I hope you're having a nice week 'cuz today this blog is ON FIRE! :) Yup, today's Mish Mash Challenge theme is hot and... what can be hotter than fire? [pffff, The Boyfriend of course!]

As I can't really draw a person (and it honestly never crossed my mind to draw a hot guy on my nails) I decided to go for some burning hell flame nail art:
I thought I'd spend two lives painting those but I managed to get them done in 1h, trial and error included; picture me pleased! 

For this I used two coats of OPI Lucern-tainly Look Marvelous, which is a stunning metallic grey that I'll wear again despite of its ridiculous-slash-neverending name. On top of it I drew the flame shapes with white acrylic paint and filled them in with white to make the colors pop. I then painted the flames with red, dark orange, orange, light orange and yellow acrylic paint that I mixed myself on the go. Add the studs, and the look is complete!

How do you like this?

  3. WOW!! So pretty!!!
    I have been trying to do such flame design a while ago but it totally failed and now I see why.
    I was trying to mix the yellow and the red and it just won't work on the nails. The way you did it is sooooo much nicer and your flame looks a lot more defined. I LOVE IT!!!
    and I will now have to try it your way!
