La Luna

I love creating ruffian manicures using my favourite jewel tone colours. This manicure is no exception.


Ruffian manicures, inspired by a half moon shape are a quick and simple way to add an accent colour to your nails, I prefer gold and silver polishes for this, but any metallic colour will look fab!

For today's ruffian, inspired by the moon, I chose a base colour of Cheers To You from China Glaze, a beautiful silver foil, and the top colour is OPI's Yoga-ta Get This Blue. YGTB was released with OPI's India Collection in 2008 and is a vibrant mix of navy and royal blue. If you want a navy that still looks blue and not black, Yoga-ta Get This Blue (really)!!

    1. Its really easy! if you don't have a steady hand try using french manicure stencils to start with. You will get the hang of it, its just like painting your nails, but further up from your cuticles :) I hope you try the ruffian out soon
