Retro Pink Flame Nails


                                                                                 


If you paint flames on the side of your car, it is scientific evidence that the flames make it go faster. I don't make the rules. Flames on the side of  clothing instantly made the owner a badass. What brought on this trend?


Was it  Jeff Gordon and his DuPont racing jacket with the flame sleeves?

Every truck driving Dad had a replica of this from' 97-'01
                                             
Was it the popularization of motorcycle gear that even had the likes of Britney Spears wearing leather and fire?
Motorcycle ready? Nah. World Tour ready? Yeppers!
                                                 
Was the popularization of Extreme Sports in the late 90's and early 20's began that made fashionable to wear cargo shorts, board shorts and stretchy neoprene shirts plastered with flames to let everyone know that you were fast or at the very least... HOT?

Quicksilver swim trunks.

*Sigh* Where do I even begin ?



I don't know why this was a thing but I loved it. There was no rhyme or reason to clothing in the late 90's/early 2000's fashion but you know what? I accept this trend for all the wonderful tackiness that it is.







I wanted to stay on brand/be dramatic which is my flames have a glitter element to it. In order to avoid looking like a Hot Cheetos mess, my flames are pink which is also on brand for me.
