Today I have a manicure inspired by an Australian book, Fireshadow by Antony Eaton. This was such a beautiful story and I liked the combination of the grey, cloudy cover and the fiery title font.

For the grey nails I started by painting my nails white using WnW French White Creme. Then I took a small piece of make up sponge and added Zoya Dove and Nubar Barricade. Finally I painted the tips with WnW Black Creme.

For the fire nail I found a tutorial over at Honeymunchkin (such a cute blog name!) and followed her steps. I used a yellow BYS shade (it was gifted to me by my sis and has lost the label), Zoya Jancyn, Ulta3 Scarlet, and Orly Ruby plus a thin brush.

I was going to add the cockatoo and some of the barbed wire but I didn't get the chance to go back before I took this off to create a new manicure. I do like how simple this was to do, and I really like the fiery nail!

Enjoy your weekend! xox
