China Glaze in Awe of Amber + Nail Art

Hi again! :)

I am back with my nail post for the day. The base for this mani is China Glaze In Awe of Amber that I got on clearance at Sally's (I am in there so much the girls know who I am. haha). I probably only picked it up since I share part of it's name, because the color isn't one I usually go for. This is 3 coats.

This nail art is a bit out of my comfort zone, but you have try everything once right?! Actually, I let Dustin do all the brainstorming on this mani. Sometimes his creative side is just dying to be unleashed, and this is what he ended up with.

It looks cool right? The flames were stamped on using a design from plate I (check out the shop tab for more info) and then the details were freehanded using the Born Pretty dual nail art pens I reviewed recently.

Have you guys tried anything outside your comfort zone lately?
