Bye Bye Halloween nail art, Hello Fire nail art!

Tomorrow is the 5th November, and in the UK, that means it's Guy Faulkes Night!

This is an annual event where we Brits light fireworks and bonfires. Inspired by this, I created a fire-coloured nail art, using yellow, orange and reds.

Bye bye Halloween blood splatter nails 

Clear, yellow, orange, red and dark red nail varnishes 

Apply the clear varnish to help protect your nail, then two thin coats of the yellow 

Using a near-dry brush, I dabbed the orange nail varnish on the middle part of the nail 

Then the same with the red, but on the top third of the nail 

I used the dark red to darken the very tip of the nail

Use a clear varnish to set the design, and voila!
