Chrome Ruffian Nails.

I attempted my first ruffian manicure the other day, and although it's a very simple design, it's a nice change. I thought things through a little before I started on the design, considering if there were any tricks I should try to get my lines perfect. In the end I decided to just freehand it with the polish brush, and I was happy to find it was surprisingly easy. I don't have the steadiest hands and I was still able to create nice lines without needing to touch up. 

I often see pretty ruffian nails with a foil polish on the bottom, but I decided to go ahead and use two foil polishes for an extra metallic look. The silver polish is Sally Hansen Silver Sweep and the blue is Color Club Cold Metal.


  1. It is lovely, the color combination suites you!

  2. Looks perfect. Nice color combo.
