Yes, this picture sucks. Unfortunately I couldn't get a good one before going to work the next day and now they're all chipped :/ But this was my first attempt at a ruffian manicure. I was surprised when I looked up tutorials and saw that some people actually freehand paint this style. I painted all my nails green first, then used upside down tip guides near the base.
Polishes used: China Glaze Agro and Tongue & Chic, Essie Wrapped in Rubies
