Let it Snow Challenge: Day 7 - Fireside Glow

Hey guys - Happy Saturday! I'm back today with another mani for the Let it Snow Challenge - today's theme is Fireside Glow. 
Honestly, my first thought for this theme was to do a gradient...but I just did one for last week's challenge, so  I don't wanna OD on 'em. So, I headed to Google Image Search for inspiration and found the following two images, and kinda combined them for my nails today.

Firey gradient by Goose's Glitter (picture is a link)
Girl on Fire nails by Kelsie's Nail Files (picture is a link)
So, considering the fact that I didn't have the exact colors and had to make do with what I had, here's what I came up with!

I used: Revlon Saucy for the base of most nails, then sponged on Zoya Rica, making sure to sponge more on the tips and less as I went up (well, Hell - I ended up gradient-ing anyway!). My accent nails are ONE COAT of Rimmel Black Satin - yes, it's gorgeous and glossy and totally opaque in one coat - then I painted the flames with a white striping brush. I then went back in used a red striping brush to outline the flame shape, then I attempted to fill it in using Essence Gold Fever. I topped everything off with a coat of Poshe (which I LOVE)!
