Black Extravagance Ruffian

Boooo, I can't sleep! And I don't have energy to study so here I'm writing a post - perfect timing. :) I watched halftime of Barca:ManU and then I did my workout Insanity tranining during the second halftime (btw these workouts are really insane but interesting - if you want to know more about, just let me know :))... When I's finished, I saw that Barca won! Yay! So confusing, I'm the biggest fan of Real Madrid but I'm happy that Barca won today, because I really don't like ManU. :D I'm sure Abby is having her best dreams today. :P

Anway, I'm sure I already told you that I LOVE Ruffian manicure. It's so pretty, elegant and definitely something new to everybody here. :) I got Wet n Wild - Black Crème in my latest swap with blondie711 from MUA (note to myself: Take pictures of goodies you got  from her asap!). I never wear black on my nails, black is way too dark for my nails though. But... When I saw how opaque it is, I realized that it would work great for ruffian. I had OPI - DS Extravagance on my nails since Saturday so I wanted something new... And here it is... My new try of ruffian mani. :)

Black Crème is a perfect black creme one coater. If you need a black creme nail polish, I'd strongly recommend this one, application is amazing. :)

The weather here is sooo horrible, it's so hot lately but yesterday was sooo cold. I really hate those temperature differences. So, I don't have any sunny pictures for you. Booo! I'm sure Extravagance would look stunning now. :) I hope it'll be sunny tommorow! :$

I just realized I posted 3 almost same pictures with different backgounds. :$ I guess my hand is always prepared in this pose for taking pictures. :i


Because my phone isn't great for filming details, no video tutorial from me. :) But then I remembered that Nihrida (I'm sure you all know her, her stunning nails and her awesome blog :L ) filmed it a while ago, so I'm posting it here so you could take a look if you didn't saw it.

When I tried it for the first time after seeing this tutorial my manicure was a mess. Later I tried totally spontaneously with Wild at Heart I immediately fell in love with. I'm becoming even better with my right hand! :D

I would suggest that you add a layer of TC after applying your base color, because if you mess up something after applying a second color, you can still fix it with a brush soaked into nail polish remover. :) It's also way more easier if you pick very opaque polish, because you don't have to add 2 or more coats. :)

What do you think? Like it or not? Did you already try to make Ruffian? If so, what colors did you pick? Share some photos. :h

That's it for now from me, this weekend was all about my blog so I'm off to books from tommorow morning!
