(B)On Fire

8 Nov

I’m celebrating Bonfire Night a little later this year with a party at my friends’ house tomorrow night.  I’ve been wanting to do a fire themed mani since the Hunger Games came out last year and a late bonfire party is just the excuse I needed!

I started with a white base coat to make the colours really stand out and then created a gradient using yellow, orange and red polishes.  I wish I’d taken a picture at this stage as it was such a pretty gradient!  I then used a small nail art brush and black polish to freehand the black silhouette flames.

Overall I’m pretty pleased with these, they’re definitely eye catching!!  I think next time I do a fire mani I will reverse the look with a black background and gradient flames.

Polishes used:

  • w7 – White
  • Barry M – Yellow
  • Barry M Gelly – Mango
  • Nails Inc – St James
  • Konad – Pearl Black

    Lovely.
    You should so wear it to the cinema when Catching Fire comes out on the 22nd : )
    I preferred the books, but the art of cinema is so much more in your face visual, so these nails are perfect, so pretty and bright.

      Thanks! I loved the books, and I thought the first film didn’t do a bad job – usually films never do the books justice! I will definitely do a Catching Fire mani when I go and see it in a couple of weeks!

        Yay! Post the pic, too (of course :)))
        Yeah, I think it was that good, because it was sort of POV, shaky camera too, very documentary style, not too perfect. But books are always better, I agree.

    Looking forward to the reverse. Also looking forward to the film. I agree the books are better but the film did a good job. Loved Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. Didn’t know he was in it and nearly squealed in the cinema when saw him as the character is perfect for him. Excited!
