Christmas Ruffian

Hello lovelies,

  I decided to attempt a Ruffian style mani once again because I think they are so cool looking. I still need some practice but I am pleased with the finished mani.

Used O.P.I Off with Her Red! because I wanted an opaque, bright Red so that the
foil effect would not peek through.
Just for fun here is a Swatch of China Glaze's Midnight Kiss:
Midnight Kiss is absolutely amazing. For this mani I used Two coats as my base. You could easily get away with one coat but I really wanted a strong foil effect. Application is a dream, I didn't even need to clean up when I was done painting my base. I don't normally like Gold but this one I just couldn't resist. I think it's because it's a bright true Gold tone, not Orange-y- Gold. 

What do you guys think?
<3 Cristina

  2. I concur with Ivana; after I saw this post I immediately grabbed those colours and just did red on gold. They look fabulous, thanks for the idea Christina :D

  4. I, too, love the golden/red one. I actually only recently fell in love with ruffians. I tried it before and and it looked great on photo but in real life it made my nails look stubby.. I recently tried a different combo and the results was as lovely as yours!
