Ruffian Nails – a not *too* shabby first attempt…

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 21 - 2010

…shame about the picture though.

I chose Precision – Party Like a Rockstar for the gold under-layer because of it’s hawt metallic qualities.  Over the top, I added Illamasqua Scarab to create a nice, Wintery feeling manicure.

Unfortunately, the flash firing in the photos simply shows Party Like a Rockstar as a solid yellow and not the beautiful metallic gold that it is in reality.

I was a lot easier to achieve that I thought it would be… a little bit of patience is honestly all that’s needed.

For a great how-to on the Ruffian inspired manicure, check out one of my favourite nail blogs Lacquerized.

I can’t even tell you how many people admired my nails yesterday… oh ok, about 9 separate people and they ALL wanted to give it a go for themselves once I explained how it was achieved.

Have you attempted Ruffian Nails yet?  Which colours do you think would work best together?

    Why are they called Ruffian?

    I like the look though, it looks difficult to achieve, I’ll try it when I get around to sorting my nails out.

    The Illa polish is a gorgeous colour

    I haven’t tried this yet, but it looks really cool. I’d like to combine a gray and a midnight blue. What do you think?

    Your nails look really good especially for a first attempt and the cold polish looks great. Im really bad at any nail art.

    Not shabby at all! I can imagine what it looks like, bet it looks amazing in real life! 🙂

    Great combination, now if I had Scarab, like, yesterday…*sigh*! (Ok, that sounds too weird to any non-makeup fanatic, haha)!
