Ruffian Manicure with 2030 & We'll Always Have Paris Suede

I'm a big fan of Ruffian manicure, it looks so elegant and classy.  :) I wanted a gold metallic polish for ages and thanks to Carolina I got it. :i Ruffian mani was officialy combined with black but since I had really bad experience with a Black Out from Black&White collection with plastic finish I decided to pick something different. :i

I don't have a shimmery matte black polish so I picked one of my favorite OPI - We'll Always Have Paris Suede and for base color China Glaze - 2030.
2030 is metallic gold polish, one coater with easy application and with a frosty finish like it's usual for metallic polish. After applying 1 coat of 2030 I added one layer of TC - if you mess up you can use a brush and nail polish remover and remove the mistakes without touching lowest layer of polish. 
Then I added 2 coats of We'll Always Have Paris Suede. It's not difficult to create Ruffian but with this polish you must work extra fast because it's drying so quick. 
I'll probably add 1 coat of TC later but for now I'm enjoying suede finish and beautiful color combination.

I even managed to capture some picture on sun, because we've such a bad weather these days. :(

I must say I'm in love! :L 

What do you think about my attempt of Ruffian manicure? Like it or not?

  1. Very nice! I like that combination, and WAHP Suede is one of my favorite suedes.

  2. I really like the suede contrasted with the metallic (and the colors are good, too)! I haven't tried to do a Ruffian yet. Do you do yours free-hand?
