Gold flames manicure - with photo and video tutorial!

Hi everybody!

So many of you have asked me for a tutorial for this manicure and here it is!

I've used OPI Base coat, 2 coats of OPI Wooden Shoe Like To Know? from Holland collection, Best Glue Ever, regular gold mylar foil and Seche Vite top coat.

I wanted to create effect of gold flames on OPI Wooden Shoe Like To Know? Did I succeed?










I've decided to do a video tutorial as well so hope you'll like it :)

  5. This reminds me less of flames ad more of kinda like... golden leaf peeling away from very old furniture? Kinda like a very old, antique kinda look. This is very very cool 0_0
