15 Flame Nail Designs to Spice Up Your Next Manicure
This fad is anything but dull: there are plenty of ways to make flame nails yours. Whether you’re a fan of acrylics or you prefer natural nails, there’s something for everyone:
1. Colorful Comic Book Flames

Colorful flames on a white background are striking, but add in strategically placed black accents and—boom—comic book nails!
2. Neon Flame on Nude

Fiery neon flames on a clear base is a combo that stands out. Pointed tips work best for the illusion of a lit flame, but you can adapt to your preferred shape.
3. Flame Jelly Nails

Glass nails are taking the manicure world by storm—add flames for Instaworthy, on-point nails. You can try any color combination, just make sure the base stays transparent. 
4. Black Fire

Witchy black flames will bring your manicure a Halloween aura regardless of the season. Pair with orange, yellow, or other bright colors such as ice blue to make them pop.
5. Glossy Flames on Matte Ombre

Ombre flame nails are another double-hitter in terms of trendiness. Pair a blend of your fave colors with overlapping flames contrasting matte and glossy textures.
6. Pastel Rainbow Flames

Flame nails don’t have to feature strong, flashy colors. You can tone the look down with soft pastel flames on a nude base. This look can work with natural or acrylic nails.
7. Bedazzled Fire

Use nail jewelry to accent your flames and add a 3D element to your manicure. Place the jewelry towards the base of the nail to accent the fire.
8. Racetrack in Flames

Are you a NASCAR fan, or keen on checkers? Paint one nail flag-style and the rest in fiery shades of orange, red, and yellow.
9. Starry Night on Fire

10. Multicolored Flame Explosion

Take flame nails to the next level by going wild with colors. Change up the flames and the base on each nail.

If you adore cool tones, these icy-hot flame nails will strike your fancy. Make sure you get a glacial blue to achieve this wintery manicure.
12. Classic Red Hot

Yes, we had to include a nostalgic option—think of those flame shirts that peaked in the early 2000s. Outline the fire with frosty blue to make them more current.
13. Black and White Flames

Go for a minimalist flame nail design by keeping yours black and white on a clear base. Alternate colors on hands or every other nail, as you prefer.
14. Flames on Glossy Black

A high-gloss black background counterbalances blazing hot flames in warm tones. This design works perfectly well with shorter natural nails too.
15. Pink Flames

If you’re a maniac for all things pink, these baby pink flames on a hot fuschia background might be right for you. Add shine with a high-gloss top coat.

So I recently received the Mimi Co Exfoliating Wand via IG PR. I couldn’t wait to do a full facial and I decided to do it tonight. Order: I purchased a steamer from Amazon for $23 and I’m obsessed with it (DM me for product info). I started with UpCircle - Cleansing Face Balm With Apricot Powder As my oil cleanse to get my sunscreen from today off and any other oils and dirts. INDIE LEE - Purifying Face Wash This cleanser is perfect for getting dirts and oils from skin as well. It’s not drying and it’s totally worth it! I paired it with a face cleansing scrub brush, I also purchased from Amazon. I love it and I paid around $20 for it as well! It doubles the vibration frequency put out by Foreo. CLARISMA - Namaste Glow Energizing Face Mask This was the mask I chose for the enzyme properties. This breaks down dirts and oils in pores and dead skin cells. I also steamed my face during this time. Follain - Toning Mist: Balance + Prime This was what I sprayed over my face for the prep for my exfoliating wand. I didn’t have a true medium and I am out of Aloe Vera plants so😭 I then exfoliated with my wand starting at my cheeks and working upward and then to my forehead. I went down and to the sides of my nose. Glow slow! innisfree - Jeju Lava Seawater Lotion I used the toner to cleanse my skin and get any dirts left over from me exfoliating. SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask I use this as my hydrating mask. I took the back of my Mimi Co Wand on switched to the Moisturizing Setting. I gently slid upwards my entire face for the last 2 mins only and then wiped the mask off with a damp cloth. earthtoskin - Tea Time Anti Aging Eye Cream This is the most hydrating eye cream I own. I used this with the back of my cleansing brush on the heat setting! Yes it made my eye feel so hydrated and relaxed. fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer This was the final step as a good moisturizer seals in everything! To prevent acne I use the SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil as my last step. I didn’t use an astringent type toner, so I wanted to still treat my skin💚

Follow me on Ig for more skincare since Cherie is leaving 😭 @naturedskinv This has been an amazing journey and I’ve made soo many amazing friends. Thank you for all the love, conversations, and just overall happiness I’ve experienced on this app. I’m definitely sad, a little upset, and a dash of confused, but thank you @cheriefor giving me such an amazing confidence boost and guidance. The way the app shaped my thoughts on skincare has been insane. I’m still willing to forget this and call it a joke if y’all are! 😭 Anyways thank you again and hopefully we can stay in touch 🙏🏾
Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

I won this cute little kit in a raffle & I couldn’t be more thankful! I have always wanted to try these products but never wanted to spend the money on all of them incase I didn’t like them! Inside this kit are the following products: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 That’s literally a whole skincare routine! So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done! I love how the kit comes with steps to walk you through different routines you can use in the morning or at night! I will do a follow up review after I have used all the products for a few weeks! But so far, my skin feels & looks great! I have been breaking out lately & haven’t felt the best about my skin so I really needed this pick me up!! Thank you for reading! You guys are the best!! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
