Summer Neon Ruffian

This week's challenge was a ruffian manicure. 
I kind of like this type of mani. It's easy to do and allows you to show off 2 polishes at once!
They can be a little plain though...

Since I have been in need of summer color, I decided to pair this challenge with some bright neon polishes. I'm getting to that point where wearing neon nail polish makes me feel like a kid :( So it seemed like the ruffian manicure was the best way to wear them without having them be too loud

Funky Fingers in 220 Volts
China Glaze in Yellow Polka Dot Bikini
Funky Fingers in Pop Artist
Funky Fingers in Ectoplasmic
China Glaze in Japanes Koi (NEON)
*all topped with Hard Candy Mattely in Love*
Wet n Wild in Black Creme
*topped with Seche Vite*

The best way to get a great looking ruffian is with french manicure guide. You just place them at the base of your nail instead of the tip!
Unfortunately I never have french guides, so these were freehanded.

Until next time ^_^

I love it - cool way to wear bright colors. I agree that it's more wearable this way. P.S. I've had super bad lagging when I try to load your blog the past few days ...
