How to Nail the Trend: Flame and Checkered Nails

When it comes to nail art, there's always a new trend popping up every season. From intricate designs to bold colors, there's something for everyone. This year, we've noticed two trends that have been stealing the spotlight: flame and checkered nails. These fiery designs are heating up runways and Instagram feeds alike, so we're here to help you nail the trend.

1. Flame Nails

Flame nails are taking the beauty world by storm with their unique and fierce look. This design typically includes a vibrant orange or red base coat with yellow or red flames on top. To create this look, you'll need a steady hand and a brush for outlining the flames. We recommend using a dotting tool or toothpick to create the flames' small details. Finish off with a shiny topcoat to make your flames pop.

2. Checkered Nails

Checkered nails are a classic pattern that's been around for a while, but they're making a comeback with a modern twist. This year, we're seeing checkered nails with a bold twist, featuring a mix of neon or dark shades. Start by applying a base coat of your desired color, then use a thin brush to create the checkerboard pattern. For a bold look, mix up your color combinations by pairing contrasting shades like black and white or neon pink and yellow.

3. Combining the two trends

If you're feeling extra bold, why not try combining the two trends? You could create checkered nails with flames or vice versa. For example, apply a red base coat and create yellow flames on top, or use a checkered pattern with fiery colors. Combining these trends can create a unique and standout look that's sure to turn heads.

4. Maintenance tips

To ensure your flame and checkered nails stay looking on-trend, we recommend keeping your nails hydrated and protected. Use a good quality cuticle oil daily to keep your nails hydrated. Additionally, protect your nails with a topcoat to help seal the design and maintain the shine. If you notice any chips or peeling, gently file the nail to smooth it out and touch up any missing paint.

In conclusion, the flame and checkered nail trend is a striking and versatile way to show off your creativity. Try out these designs for yourself and let us know how you nailed the look.
