Everyone’s doing it — sharing their Hunger Games inspired nails. Over the weekend I painted mine in a fiery gradient design. Unfortunately in my excitement I piled on too many layers too fast and some of my nails popped off before I could take pictures. So I swatched it on a nail wheel, step by step, to share with you.
Step by step:
- After cleaning your nails and applying your base coat, paint nails in China Glaze Smoke and Ashes, two coats for full coverage.
- Using Finger Paints Special Effects polish in flashy, or any orange/yellow based flake polish, continue the non uniform dabbing of polish onto the nail.
- Finally, add a layer of gold glitter polish, covering only the orange/flame part of the nail — do not paint over the solid Smoke and Ashes color. Saffron London colour 08 contains two sized of hexagonal gold glitter for a random effect.
The colors together make a gorgeous burning ember look for the perfect Girl On Fire inspired manicure.
