#31DC2013 – Stripes

Please note that I no longer recommend Bondi New York as a company. For a full explanation, please see this post.


So the theory behind this mani is quite simple, it’s just a red base colour with striping tape masking as I applied my black leather effect polish.

Thing is, after the first 3 nails, I remembered why I usually freehand my stripes with a brush! What a pain. Still, it looks pretty cool. And on that note, boys have really funny taste in nails; I can do the most complex mani in the world, and the one my bloke compliments me on is the one with just a few strips of tape… Go figure!

April Challenge – Day 13 – Ruffian Mani (Nails Inc Leather Effect)

Good morning !

I’m determined to make up for my sporadic posts this week by spamming you this weekend !

As well as a post a day for the April Challenge hosted by Short and Sweet in Texas, I have a Northern Star collection to show you today, and a guest post for tomorrow.

But today, I’m showing off my Nails Inc Leather Effect in black. This is 2 coats in a ruffian over Essie’s Snap Happy from last Winter’s Leading Lady collection, a bright coral red :


I really love how this one turned out, there’s something almost gory about it 🙂

The leather effect was just as great as I expected, it was, however, odd that it looked so leathery, and was yet totally hard to the touch. But I’ll definitely wear it again !
