  1. Cute and Glamorous Ruffian Manicure

    White and gold Ruffian nails

    I created this subtle and glamorous Ruffian manicure inspired by Evelina’s looks. She is in love with gold and everything she creates is super girly, glam and cute in the best possible way.

    This nail design is dead simple (just like all my nail desings) but looks effective. Ruffian manicure (aka reversed French) is my new favourite!


  2. Ciaté Nail Taxi Set

    Grey Red Ruffian Manicure

    I created this ‘so Tumblr’ look using the nail polishes from Ciaté’s Nail Taxi polish set. I really like how the red stripes used together with blue-grey polish and dark glitter accomplish the look.

    Half Moon manicure has always been one of my all time favourites. This time I decided to try out something new colour-wise: I combined saturated orange with metallic shimmer nail polish from Maybelline: Color Show by Colorama — 182 Solar Flare and different size blue and clear rhinestones to outline the edge of the ‘moon’.

  5. Blue and Green Ruffian Manicure

    Multicolour Magnetic Ruffian Nails

    This time I created a vibrant blue, green and lime Ruffian manicure (also known as reverse half-moon or reverse French). As a base for my nail design, I used metallic grey nail polish by W7. Although it may not be clearly seen in the pictures, the ‘smile’ at the beginning of each nail was made with the magnetic nail polish and a special magnet.

    Recently I have noticed the increasing popularity of the half French manicure. So here I have created a trendy half French mani (and classic French on some nails). The design is spiced up with a thin line of fine gold glitter, 2mm green and yellow rhinestones, butterfly metal flakes and small gold beads.

  7. Black and White French Manicure

    Black and white French manicure

    There are a lot of examples on the Internet of the classic white tip French manicure with a line of black underneath. However I’ve never seen the reversed version of this manicure. This is why I decided to fill in this gap by creating the black tip French manicure with a small white line underneath.

  8. Pink Glitter and White French Tips

    Glitter French gradient nails

    To create his glamorous gradient from pale pink glitter to white, I used Beauty UK: Glam Nails — Pink Glitter No.74 as a glittery base for my manicure (I applied two coats). Then, using Madeline Poole’s technique I applied white nail varnish to my tips. It doesn’t really matter what nail polish to use, as soon as it’s pure white and opaque. But here I used W7 — 34 White.
