Candle-flame gradient mani! Click to make big.

Finished this 1pm Tuesday, had dh take photos and then had to rush to work without posting them!
None of these photos do this epic mani justice... They *really* do look like they are candle flamess/on fire!
I want to mention that this idea came by accident, while I was doing some swatching on a clear plastic sheet. (My initial idea was to fauxnad over black and orange.)

Base- Sally Hansen, Insta-dry in Orange You Fast.
Overlay- Nfu-oh, #49
Overlay- Funky Fingers, #874, Hyper!
Overlay on tips- Sinful Colors, Daddy's Girl
Overlay on tips- Nina Ultra Pro, Purple-Xing
Overlay at base of nail- Color Club, Explosive
