Twinsie Tuesday - Ruffian

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

Today's Twinsie Tuesday challenge is to do a ruffian manicure.  A ruffian starts with a base color and then adding a different color on top of the base color, but further away from the cuticle.  This way, you see the base color peeking through at the base of the nail.


For my base color, I used A-England Holy Grail (the original).  I then used Sinful Colors Fire Red as my second color.  I wish I could've done this manicure more neatly.  The red isn't as centered as it should be and is slightly crooked :(.  I do think the colors go really well together though.

While I consider this mani a fail, I was happy to finally give this a try.  Will I do it again?  I don't know.  I would have to be feeling adventurous, lol.

I'm looking forward to seeing if my twinsies had a better experience with their ruffian manicures.  Go check them out!
