Twinsie Tuesday: Ruffian Mani



I was a bit stuck on this theme... I rarely ever do Ruffians! I went on Google Images for inspiration and really liked this skittle Ruffian look by Didoline and this blue and grey Ruffian mani by Escape by Beauty. I decided to combine both and do a skittle Ruffian with grey. 

Gray: Color Club - Sheer Disguise
Ruffian colors:
Index: Color Club - La Petite Mint-sieur
Middle: Color Club - Blue-Ming
Ring: Color Club - Endless
Pinky: Color Club - In De-Nile



Initially, I was going to try to freehand the Ruffian shape... But as you can see my skills aren't that great haha. So I ended up using these French Tip Nail Guides from Born Pretty Store to create the lines instead (except my pinky). Use my code SL10k31 for 10% off! I wish the guides were a bit more curved but otherwise I liked them and found them easy to use.

Don't forget to show the other Twinsies some love!

    1. Thanks Sharon! Ya the freehand wasn't going well for me... But the tip guides weren't as curved as I wanted them to be :(

  10. Tip guides are very useful when it comes to such kind of nail art. I love that you used different colors for your ruffian nail art!

    1. Ya I just wish the tip guides were more curved for this design. Thanks! I usually don't really like the skittles look but I liked the skittles ruffian when I saw it since it's just a small area and not the entire nail

  11. I love that you did a pastel skittle - lovely colour combinations. I had the same issue as you, i.e. not having curved French guides. I freehanded mine in the end and they look a bit wonky. Should just have gone with shallow curves after all.

      Thanks! I'll probably try the color scheme again with another design :)

  13. While doing french manicure, I tend to use those tips but with ruffian, I find them more demanding than freehand :D I love the pastel colors you used :)
