Ruffian Mani with some Bling - Guest Post by Tricia

Today Tricia is bringing you some more of her beautiful nail art. This is a Ruffian Manicure with some extra bling added. I am just learning how to do some forms of nail art and hope to bring you some in the future.

1) Paint nail with black polish
2) Using silver striper paint the deep smile line as a guide
3) Fill in with silver polish to cover desired area
4) While silver polish is still wet apply silver holographic foil flakes
5) Finish with sealer

Items used:
Color club- Where's The Soiree (a very pigmented Black)
Art Club- solid silver nail striper
Color club- Sex Symbol
Art club- Silver Ice Pieces(silver Holographic foil/mylar flakes)
Art club- sealer
(On natural nails, I would definitely use a base coat for a longer lasting manicure)
NOTE: Sex symbol is a silver glitter polish, I had to use 2 coats to get full coverage. I used that silver because my solid silver was broken.If using a solid silver polish, 1 coat would be good, since it just creates a background for the foil flakes. I plan on doing this same design using Gold polish with gold foil flakes to see which I like better. The art club foil flakes are sold at Sally's Beauty Supply.
