Wednesday Manicure: Metallic Ruffles

This week’s manicure was inspired by the ruffle manicure tutorial seen here. (From the top) I used Wet & Wild “Silvivor”, Color Club “Wild at Heart” (purple), Orly “Halley’s Comet” (teal), China Glaze “Tinsel Town” (dark silver), Kleancolor “Metallic Green”, and Color Club “Cold Metal” (blue).

Metallic Ruffle Manicure

While I love the super shimmery color combination, this is one I wish I’d tested on a nail wheel before doing all ten fingers. The top few rows are just too similar from afar & blend together. I think the secret for a good ruffle manicure is alternating a light and a dark color to make the rows really pop (even if it means repeating one polish more than the rest).
