Now, some of you have probably heard of this style of manicure under a different name, I know I did, either reverse french or cresent moon manicure or something else, they're all the same.
I ended up finding out the name "Ruffian Manicure" after doing a little browsing on the internet. From what I understand the name comes from the origin on the design at a fashion show, but I could be wrong.
Anyways, I think the design is really pretty and sophisticated looking so I decided to finally try one for myself.
|Sinful Colors Mesmerize and Sally Hansen Coin Flip|
To do this technique I started with three coats of coin flip as a base. Then I went back over with two coats of Mesmerize, making sure to leave just a sliver of Coin Flip showing at the base of my nails.
The two colors together, the jewel tone and the metallic, look so nice together and I like it as an alternative sophisticated style to the french manicure which has never been my favorite.
I definitely think I'll be doing this look again in the future!
