I'm continuing with the "Mint Manis" today and I've played with a new-to-me technique. The mint polish I chose this time around is one that I would classify as a true mint polish. Green and creamy... just how I like 'em :P
Colors Used: Sally Hansen - Golden-I, Essie - Mint Candy Apple
From what I can gather, the Ruffian mani was created a couple of years ago by the creative team of CND. They made this mani for the New York Fashion Week Ruffian Fashion Show. I've noticed it popping up again recently and gaining in popularity, so I thought I'de give it a shot.
Love the mani, hate the photos lol. I started with 2 coats of Golden-I. I then applied Mint Candy Apple with the bottle brush, being sure yo leave a decent amount of gold exposed by my cuticles. I went back with a nail art brush and swiped the gold polish around the curve so that I would have a clean line.
This is definitely a manicure that I want to do again, it was pretty quick to do. I found an excellent tutorial by Lacquerized if you would like some visuals :)
Sooooo yea! Happy Friday hehe.
Until next time!
