NOTD: Girl on Fire

Let me preface this by saying: I am not an artist. And I’m not happy with the way this manicure came out. But the only way to get better is to practice so….I’m posting it anyways 🙂 Hopefully some of my lovely readers (whom I hope there are actually a few and I’m not just deluding myself ;-D) will have constructive criticism for me! If you have any tips on freehand painting pleeeeease let me know!

This manicure was inspired by the Hunger Games. I’ve just finished reading the first book and I’m going to be starting book 2 tonight. I think I read the whole thing in the span of a week, I stayed up until 2AM reading every night!! I haven’t enjoyed a book this much in years 🙂 If you haven’t read it you should definitely check it out. As many of my fellow lacqueristas know there’s a movie coming out this weekend. I almost never go out to the movies but…I might have to check this one out. I can’t wait for it to be on DVD or Netflix!

For my first attempt at painting fire I think I’m ok with it (I know, at the beginning of this post I said I wasn’t happy with it…but that was like 20 minutes ago when I wrote that!!), I’ll probably like it more tomorrow once I accept that it’s not perfect, but it’s my best and that’s good enough for now 🙂 I’ve included pictures of before and after adding glitter to my fire, I’m not sure if I like it better with or without the glitter. The glitter evened out the colors in my flames and hid some flaws but it may have obscured it too much… what do you think?
