Creative musings in bright colors

Fire Rising – 31DC2014

Today, Day 3, is “yellow.” But, as we know, I hate yellow. So I compromised and used a good deal of yellow but actually used red and orange and white too :-D. My inspiration for this design came from @u_nona, and I would have stayed closer to her example if I had some golden microbeads.


As it is, I made a yellow-orange-red gradient, added white half moons and some golden glitters. I’ve been on a gradient kick recently (just wait and see!) and this one started it all. It looks like fire!


The gradient itself went on remarkably smoothly. I did start with a yellow base (not white) just to make my life easier, but I don’t think it mattered in the end.


– Yellow: Love&Beauty – Yellow
– Orange: Zoya – Thandie
– Red: Pure Ice – Siren
– White: Wet n’ Wild – French White Creme


The glequins came in a set from the Born Pretty Store. Hope you enjoyed! Tomorrow’s nails are a bit…odd. Just a warning!

  1. I hate yellow, too!…(mainly beacuse finding one that works with my skintone is almost impossible)…but I like the gradient idea with the white halfmoon glitter touch…nice!
