Today is Day 9 of the 10 Day Challenge, and it’s all about our “Favourite Colour Combo” for a manicure.
I am lucky to be doing this challenge with three other super talented Ladies who are trooping through this mini Challenge and rocking some great manicures!:
Carolina from Colores de Carol
Marketta from Pink Polish Addict
Tera from Nails in Nippon

My post today is not so much my ultimate colour combo, but a guideline to my what MAKES a perfect duo for me:
1) A light cream polish (preferably a nude or pastel)
2) A metallic or shimmery accent polish/stamping polish
It’s that simple! For example, I love a baby blue or mint green paired with a dark metallic brown (if memory serves me correctly, Carolina will be featuring this very combo today). I however, will be showing you a peach and silver combo
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do !
This is my first attempt at a ruffian manicure and because I didn’t have those little french tip strips, to use as a guide, I had to freehand the peach shade over the silver. I painted both hands (because I wanted to wear this look and see if my left hand is up for this “ruffian” challenge; believe it or not, both hands looked decent for a first attempt and I braved to venture outside of the house with these nails ).
I did spruce up the ruffian manicure a little with some Konad stamping
Base: one coat of Sally Hansen Celeb City
Ruffian Look: was two coats of L.A.Girl Dainty
Stamp: Konad plate m51 and Sally Hansen Whirlwind White. I then added dots with the BornPrettyStore dotting tool and Celeb City
Top: one coat of Seche Vite
If you find the above look a little too busy, you can skip the stamping and just wear it as a plain ruffian manicure:
I really am a fan of the shimmery/metalic against the cream background…
