[Nail Art] Burgundy & Metallic Side-stripe Ruffian



Here's some quick easy nail art.  I used Scotch tape to tape off the side of each nail, then painted one coat of Zoya- Blair on top (of Color Club- Antiquated), leaving a Ruffian-style gap at the top. 



The Ruffian part is kind of messy, and I wish I had left it out and just had the side-stripe.  I think it would have made my nails look longer if the stripe extended to the cuticle. Next time, I'll just try the side stripe, and tape off a smaller section so it's narrower.



The accent nail is Cirque- XX, an absolutely gorgeous layering glitter that I want to put on everything.



I wasn't really a fan of this nail art, and didn't wear it very long.  I thought the colors would look good together, but it ended up reminding me of a sports jersey or something.

  1. I think this is gorgeous! The colors look so well together and how you combined a tape mani with a ruffian is genius. The glitter accent is perfect too. Lovely mani!

    Maybe because I don't watch sports, but it doesn't give me that idea xD
