Girl On Fire Nails!

Hey guys!

Today I'm showing you my attempt at Hunger Games inspired nails. In the book, Katniss gets made over by her prep team and they paint little flames on her nails. This is my attempt at those nails.

Now, I can't say that I came up with this idea myself; I stole borrowed the idea from Ryan's guest post at Nails Made Simple.

I started with a coat of Wet n Wild Black Creme. Then I mattified it! I finally ordered Essie's Matte About You top coat and I was stoked to use it. I didn't photograph this part of the manicure. I'm sure you've all seen Wet n Wild Black Creme somewhere, lol.

Then, using Electrify from China Glaze's Colours From The Capitol, I free hand drew little flames onto my nails with a small art brush.

I dabbed some INM Out The Door on the nails to get rid of some of the grittiness and voila! It's certainly not the best flame manicure I've ever seen but I freaking LOVED these nails. I kinda don't want to take them off, even though I promised Ryan I would attempt a splatter mani today, heehee.

What do you guys think? Have you seen The Hunger Games? I'm planning a post to discuss it that will be full of spoilers. I can't stop thinking about the movie!

Anyway, hope you have a great Saturday!

Talk to you soon!
