Fire Inspired Nail art

Hey everyone! So, i was thinking what better way to remember a traumatic experience than to use it as inspiration..hehe. Ok, so thats not exactly what happened. I mentioned in the previous post that while on vacation a fire happened in the building i was staying in. It happened at 2:00 a.m. Unfortunately i didn't wake up to the alarm rather i woke up to someone banging at the door (thank God). I was staying on about the 27th floor and i woke up my family and we charged down 27 flights of stairs. Unfortunately the fire had escalated pretty badly by the time we got out, but thankfully everyone was safe and there were no injuries. By 8:00 in the morning, they had controlled the fire but it had already ate up the whole back side of the building up to the roof and the whole right side. It was the scariest thing i've ever been in. If you'd like to take a look heres a picture...


Anyway, so you know when your in a completely serious situation and your supposed to be all consumed by it and yet you end up thinking about something that has absolutely nothing to do with what your in. Thats what happened while i was going down the stairs...i was praying to God that we lived but also the titanic was playing in my head because of all the water and i was thinking...Man, this would make an awesome manicure if i make it out!
So this is my take on the fire...mind you its not scary its just a little fiery fun in my manicure.

Fire Nail Art

The first one is in sunlight and the second is with flash. So, the idea was streaks of glitter on all my nails to represent flames (it didn't really come out like that cuz of all the colored glittery pieces i guess) and on my ring finger it was supposed to be an explosion...Kaboom! hehe. I got the idea for this nail art from a lot of really cool bloggers but mainly from a blogger called the Nailside because she did one art design with the explosion and its super pretty. Heres a link

The base is black on all fingers except my ring finger, obviously where it is red.

And heres what i used

Flormar Nail Therapy Ridge Filler which i used as a basecoat
Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Black Out on all fingers except the ring finger
Sally Hansen No Chip 10 Day Nail Color in Resilient Red on my ring finger
NailStation Paris Nail Polish in Vandalism Art 77 to create the streaky design on the black
L.A. Colors Art Deco Nail Art Lacquer in Teal Glitter to create the explosion on the ring finger
And finally
Essence Gel-look XXXL Shine topcoat on all fingers except the ring finger

So thats my look, hope you like it.
