First, I did a regular manicure for the base of the manicure and it's the color that you want to be showing as the "tip." For my first Ruffian, I used OPI Teal The Cows Come Home, a shimmery teal. I did two layers of Teal the Cows Come Home over my base coat and put one layer of Seche top coat over.
I then used Duri Midnight Blues and started lower than my cuticles so that the base color would be seen as well as the second color. Midnight Blues is a medium Sapphire blue with orange/pink/red and silver glitters. I suggest you use only one coat for your secondary color or else it'll look thick between your base and secondary color. After that, I topped it off again with Seche top coat and tadaaaaa~! :)
Have you tried the Ruffian Manicure? If so and you would like to show off your Ruffian Manicures, I would love it if you'd email me your pictures, list the nail polishes you used and your blog link and it will be featured in my next blog post! :)
