Blue Ruffian

I was nervous to start my week 13 ruffian manicure. I'm not much of a fan of manis that involve creating "moon" shapes, but I really ended up loving this!

 I started out with two coats of Sephora by OPI Bright As A Feather.


This is such a gorgeous robin's egg metallic blue. I was pleasantly surprised by the formula. Sephora by OPI shades can tend to be on the sheer side, but I got full coverage at two thin coats. Win. 

I paired it with Barielle's Blackened Blue that I got recently from a Hautelook sale. I love this combo!

My crescent moon shape isn't pristine because I freehanded the ruffian. I didn't feel like waiting for my base color to dry completely to be able to use french manicure guides like I've seen suggested elsewhere.  Eh, I'm still happy with the results. It looks pretty good from the front though.

I'll have my week 14 striped mani to share with you tomorrow. I hope you guys are having a great weekend.
