Get this fire effect on your nails just by using a need and some black and red nail paint.
THINGS YOU NEED:
- Clear nail paint (top coat)
- Red and black nail paint (or any other nail color of your choice)
- A pearl top needle (a toothpick will work as well)
Step 1: Apply two coats of the base color on your nails. This should be the color which you would want at the base of you nails. In this case, I chose a bright red color. Let it dry for 10-15 minutes and move on to the next step.
Step 2: Apply 2-3 blotches of black nail paint at the tip of your nails. The blotches need to have a shape most resembling thick blobs. In order to create the flaming effect the blobs will need to be stretched out half way through the nail to create the scintillating effect.
Step 3: Take a needle, put it on the blob of black nail paint and stretch the blob of paint from the tip of the nail to half way down your nail. This step will need to be repeated in quick succession so to avoid the thickening of the nail paint.
Note: To create the blazing effect you can either bring the lines out straight or in a squiggly line depending on the thickness of the black nail paint and the width of the needle or toothpick you are using.
Step 4: If the blob of black paint isn’t sufficient to create the lines, then you can apply more black paint and repeat this process over and over again till you are truly satisfied with the final product. Make sure you don’t apply a lot of black paint at the tip because it may smudge and the separate lines may not be distinguishable as a result.
Step 5: Once all the nails are finished make sure you let them dry for a minimum of ten minutes. To add the finishing touches to your amazing looking nails I suggest you apply a top coat. This will seal of any bumpy/rough edges that might have incurred.
If for some reason you find this DIY difficult to accomplish, don’t worry, try it on your own and you’ll find, it’s much easier then it looks. Just a few squiggly lines with a nice pattern and a concept in mind can do the trick.
