The tutorial was intended to achieve a "grunge effect" on the nail, and the nails she did with it are just incredible. You have to go see them: http://www.nailsadored.com/2012/03/23/grunge-effect-tutorial/.
So anyway, I thought this tutorial could be used also to get a fire-like effect on the nail too, so that is what I used it for...since this past weekend was Hunger Games release weekend and all, it seemed fitting!
|Nails, BEFORE the last step, and before adding accent nail.|
And here is the end result!...

I absolutely love how this came out! I am soooo happy I decided to use the tutorial, it wasn't even hard at all, even for someone like me who rarely does nail art other than stamping or splattering.
After I did the tutorial nails, I added the accent nails. Those are done with the same black base as the rest of the nails started off with, and then I mixed together Nerd Lacquer's Regeneration and China Glaze Riveting, and then sponged that mixture onto the two accent nails.
List of Products used:
Wet N Wild - Black Creme (base color, 2 coats)
Color Club - Polish for All, P Is for Pride, I always get my Man-darin, Dress for the Parade
China Glaze - Riveting
Nerd Lacquer - Regeneration
Seche Vite Top coat
