As promised, here's another post from the Lazy Days of Summer Challenge! Apparently the Autumn Challenge will be starting on the 1st of September so I need to get the rest for this challenge finished off, so I may post more than once on some days :P Anyway, the theme for this post was dotting tool summer fun. My first thought was to do more flowers with a dotting tool but I wanted to try something I haven't done before. So I decided to do a ruffle mani!
I didn't want these nails to be too in your face so I only did ruffles as an accent nail, I also only used two different colours but I really love how it looks.
For these nails I used two coats of China Glaze Grape Juice. This is a new polish I bought last week and I absolutly love it. I don't own too many purples and this has beautiful shimmer running all the way through it. It also applied like a dream so naturally it's become a new favorite :P I then used OPI Rumples Wiggin' and China Glaze Octa Gone Wild and a large dotting tool to create the ruffles on my ring finger.
I'm really pleased with how this turned out. However, I think next time I try a ruffle mani I'll use more than two colours for the ruffles, I feel like it isn't as obvious as I'd like. I think this is a good way to wear the ruffle mani without making it too obvious, maybe a work appropriate look? Now, I want to try this out with nude polish!! :P
Thanks for reading :)
