Ruffian Manicure

If you liked the look of the half moon manicure I did two weeks ago, you'll love this one! It's essentially the same as the half moon, but reversed.

Here's the supplies I used:

- Billie, Platinum
- Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear,Wet Cement
- Clear or top coat
- 3 hole paper reinforcements

First, paint all your nails grey, or whatever color you want to show on most of your nails.

Next, stick on the reinforcements. You only have to press down the part closest to the base of your nail - you could even cut these in half and only use 5 instead of 10 for both hands, I was just lazy haha

Paint the exposed part of your nails, making sure to overlap onto the reinforcement - that's what they're there for, after all!

I had to use two on my thumb, and then smooth out the point in the center with the first grey polish after the darker grey dried.

Carefully peel them off before the polish dries, or it'll pull pieces of dried polish off with it if you wait.

And that's it! Don't forget your top coat.
