Flame Nails
I don't know about you, but when I was younger, I loved Hard Rock Café. It was a frequent choice for a birthday celebration, and I always had to collect those guitar pins. 

Hard Rock Cafe Nail Polish

Artistic Nail Design's new Summer 2021 collection, Alive & Amplified, is a collaboration with Hard Rock Café and I couldn't be more excited. I was lucky enough to be gifted with this set, and it is everything you want in a summer nail polish collection...bold, vibrant colors that scream fun. 

I'm finally putting my pin collection to use, and creating some awesome Hard Rock inspired manis.

First up is Strike A Chord, a neon orange crème, and a mani is inspired by this Hard Rock Café motorcycle pin. I incorporated the color scheme and the chrome accents for an edgy mani that is sure to turn heads.

Polish Used:

  • Artistic Colour Revolution - Strick A Chord
  • Artistic Colour Revolution - Light Up The Stage
  • Wet N Wild - Ebony Hates Chris
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Makeup sponge
  • Nail tape
  • Silver and black studs and spikes
  • Krazy Glue
  • Dark grey glitter

Instead of doing a regular flame nail, the a gradient works as a minimalistic flame design. To create this look:
  1. Apply the base colors - index and middle in yellow, ring and thumb in black, and pinky in neon orange.

  2. Use a wet makeup sponge to create a neon orange and yellow gradient on the index and middle fingers.

  4. Apply a wide piece of nail tape down the center of the index and middle fingers, paint the sides of each nail black, and remove the tape.

  5. Apply a layer of top coat on the thumb, and immediately cover with dark grey glitter.
