Catching Fire

Nothing to Disclose

Hello lovelies!

Today I decided to be topical. I also wanted a bit of a break from detailed work like my last polar enterprise, though this ended up being more of a hard case than I anticipated.

Sorry about the smudging! Topcoat can be a real bitch when it wants to, hey?

My aquatic mani from a long time ago was very popular so I thought that, with the new Hunger Games movie coming out today, it might be nice to try it with fire. It was sort of a bad idea? I mean, it all got smudged and the white unders are peeking out and bah! BAH.

Anyway. I started with two coats of Don't Pretzel My Buttons, followed by painting on the fire shapes with French White. I then painted on the fire bits with the rest of the colours, going from yellow to red.

Polishes used:
OPI - Don't Pretzel My Buttons, Y'All Come Back Ya Hear?
Nina Ultra Pro - French White
Revlon - Electric
Essence - Fortune Cookie
American Apparel - Lopez Canyon
Inglot - 724
Layla - Fire It Up (Softouch Effect 08)
Sally Hansen - Cinna-snap
Duri - Rejuvacote (base coat)
Glisten & Glow - HK Girl (top coat)

Next up, Outrageous Ville. I'm thinking of something Effie Trinket inspired... makes sense, goes with the theme, might be impossible, you know. The whole shebang.




  1. Those are gorgeous!!! I love them.

  2. It's gorgeous, hush! I didn't even see the smearing either. Fire is hard, I have tried it once or twice with no good resut to speak of. You did a great job, its not easy, so kudos!

  3. Thank you so much Lindsey!

  4. Thank you Josephine dear!

  5. I'm tempted to try it again, but do it, like... flames-style. Like race car flames. I_Heart_Nailart on IG did some a while ago and they looked KILLA.

    And thank you sweet pea!

  6. Thank you! :)
