Pretty In Pink

Hello! Winter break went by so quickly for me. Later today I'll be moving back to residence to start my second term of university. I have mixed feelings about everything and I am simultaneously: sad to be leaving home, excited to see friends, horrified to start school, really hungry, etc :P One of my main concerns is being better about keeping up with blogging though. Hopefully I can manage my time better to post consistently!

Ruffian manicures used to be my favourite thing ever. Way back in the day I probably loved them even more than tribal prints. I even have a ruffian manicure in my drafts that I never posted because there were too many recent ones on my blog :P But today I brought it back and I am reminded as to why I love them so much. They're clean and simple, yet eye-catching. I spruced this pink and white one up with a white gradient.


I started with a base of American Apparel T-Shirt. Then I painted on the ruffian with American Apparel Coney Island. Once that was dry I sponged on American Apparel T-Shirt on the tips.

Have you done a ruffian manicure before? What do you think of the style? Link or tweet me your versions! (@preciouspolish)
