Hope everyone is having a great Sunday! Today I have a simple mani that anyone can recreate! I did a ruffian, or some may call it the reverse French. I actually did it once before, trying to recreate the nails sported by the models at the Chanel Couture Fall 2012 runway. This time I opted for more regal colours, also embracing the coming Fall.
I started off with the gold as my base. I painted 2 coats of OPI Goldeneye, one of my favourite gold polishes. You don't have to worry if it's not all that opaque or if it's streaky here and there cos you're gonna paint over it anyway!
Next, I used Essence Fateful Desire, a really rich and deep wine red. Basically you want to paint it such that you leave a gap of gold at the cuticle and also a bit and the sides of your nail. You can paint it to leave as much or as little of the gold. I really love the combination of red and gold, giving off a very classy and regal vibe.
Hope you liked this post and mani! :) Would love to see everyone starting to bust out some Fall manis!
