Artsy Wednesday - Ruffian Manicure

Hi darls! Today's Artsy Wednesday theme is a ruffian manicure! A ruffian is pretty much an inverted half moon manicure. It is a lovely little design but I did have a bit of difficulty deciding on how best to apply it. I tried painting my nail the base colour and then painting over that colour, but keeping the ruffian visible, but I just couldn't paint on a good enough oval shape, so I decided to paint the top colour first, use a reinforcement sticker and paint the little bit of nail visible with my second colour. I used 1 coat of Jordana Calcium Gel Basecoat, 1 coat of China Glaze - Peachy Keen, 1 coat of China Glaze - Midnight Kiss, followed by 1 coat of Cult Nails - Wicked Fast.

I really like this look, it's super feminine and cute!
