Nude & Pink Ruffian Nails

Today's design is something very clean and simple. I haven't done a lot of Ruffian Nails up until now so this is something different from the usual. 

I used two coats of Essence - Iced Latte as a base color. I love this nail polish, it's the best nude one I have. The Ruffian is freehanded with H&M - All Eyes On Me, a very old but still great nail polish in bright pink. 

I thought about doing the curve with french manicure tape but I didn't have the patience to wait for Iced Latte to be tape-dry. So I just proceeded with the pink polish as with a normal manicure, just leaving out a small part on top of the nail. On top is one coat of Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat on which I'm now getting onto the bottom of the bottle. I really liked this top coat in regard to the drying time. The formula was not too thick but it was alright to work with. I'm not gonna re-buy it though because it is too expensive in Switzerland and I couldn't find a cheap seller on Ebay. I decided to give Essie - Good To Go another try. 

I love Ruffian Nails, since they're really chic and make a fast way to get a pretty manicure. You need a steady hand though to do the curves or use stencils to create the perfect line. 


  1. Sieht sehr schön aus, vor allem deine Farbkombi gefällt mir :). Ist es eigentlich auch ein Ruffian Nail Art, wenn der Halbmond andersrum ist?

    1. Dankeschön! Gute Frage... Ich glaube nicht, aber weiss es nicht genau. Ich kenn's nur unter Halbmond :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my post, I appreciate it a lot!
