Hot Rod nails!

Day 24

Today I felt fiery, so I decided to do flame nails... plus I bought OPI for Sephora's What's a Tire Jack? Matte, so I had to try it out! The flames on black matte reminds me of classic hot rods, love it.

My left hand:

My right hand:

I used OPI Banana Bandana as a base, then used the water marbling technique with Zoya Pippa, China Glaze Salsa, and Urban Vibe nail polish in Orange, which I got for 50¢ at Wet Seal. After the water marbling dried, I painted on the red flame outlines with China Glaze Salsa, and the filled in background of the flames with OPI for Sephora What's a Tire Jack? Matte, which is a VERY nice true black matte.

It chipped a little because I've been using my nails this morning to pull protective layers off of plexiglass getting ready for the International Gaming Convention here in Las Vegas... (G2E)

Vroom vroom!


  1. OMG I love flames! Can you come over and paint my nails...please!

  2. OK, those are pretty damn cool. If you looked like Bettie Page and had nails like that it would make me walk funny.

  3. ONLY redhead???? grandpa, aunt linda, 3 or 4 other aunts - you make it sound like I had a meeting with the milk man!!!! Mom :) Love those flames

  4. Danica- thanks! Water marbling is VERY frustrating sometimes, but keep trying, and make sure you send a picture- I want to see your recreation!!

    and Mom, I meant immediate family, which is why I only mentioned parents and sister. I am most definitely not the milkman's child, anyone who saw dad and I together would find it hard to disagree! :-P

  5. Love the hot rod manicure. Great job.

  6. It looks cool, but at least this one on the photo, it doesn't look like a great job, it seems to have a lot of bumpiness in the nail.

  7. Hello, i think that this is a great post because has useful information.

  8. wow.. cool.. your nails look just like a chopper with cool flames design.. nice..


Go on, comment... you know you want to. ;-P
