We Like It Hot, Hot, Hot!: Summer Fun Challenge

Verrry late, but I had a lot of trouble coming up with something original for this one! I wanted it to be really HOT! I landed on a flame manicure that also incorporates a very hot summer trend: neons.


On a base of the intensely red-orange China Glaze Japanese Koi, I freehanded an abstract flame design with China Glaze Sun-Kissed and an Orly red that belongs to my mother, and I can't remember the name of. I dry-brushed on a bit of CND Gold Chrome at the tips to give it a true glowing-ember effect.


This orange just won't photograph quite right, which is a complaint I constantly read about neons. But they just won't glow in the pictures like they do in real life! They have a crazy dis-embodied nail effect which I have grown to love, and will definitely be rocking more of for the summer.

  1. love it! Neons never quite photograph right! I can totally imagine it though! I'm sure it's stunning IRL! :)
