Ughhhhhh so these photos may or may not be from the end of September… which, if you know me even a little, means the former rather than the latter. I'm sorry; I'm human; it'll definitely happen again.
I wasn't too thrilled when I got "HEDGE FUND" as my Ruffian nail polish shade a couple of months ago (everyone got a Ruffian polish that month but the color varied) but I was excited to try the brand nonetheless. So, to make lemonade out of this lemon, I decided the perfect thing to do with "HEDGE FUND" was to try out the 'Ruffian Manicure'… I don't know if Ruffian can really claim this type of manicure as their own (I've seen it plenty of times before) but I guess that's branding/marketing for you.
The Ruffian polish itself was actually extremely pleasant to work with; it was opaque in one coat and dried relatively quickly. I think it looked gorgeous paired with NYC's "Sidewalkers" and I got an overwhelming amount of compliments on the manicure while it lasted.
So there you have it folks! I hope you like this manicure and, if you haven't already, definitely give it a try for yourself. No nail tools or tape required; just paint your nail with the base color normally, let it dry, then paint the top color the same way you normally would but stopping the brush a bit higher than the cuticle so the base color peeks through. Easy peasy 〜(‾▿‾〜)
Have you tried Ruffian nail polishes?
What was your experience?
Tried the supposed 'Ruffian Manicure'?
