This is a challenge manicure,  the theme is elements, so wasn't sure whether to pick and choose from the periodic table or use the classical elements.  I chose the latter.

Four of these classical elements seem to be consistent:   Fire, Earth, Water, Air  but the fifth element is ambiguous, depending culture, it could be void, heaven, aether, spirit or plasma.

Base colour:  Sinful Colors, 101 Snow me White
Fire base:  Beauty UK Nail Polish, Unnamed (Yellow) and Maybelline color show
