Opposites Attract!

Hi Readers!  I'm sure you've heard this one before--opposites attract.  This is something people like to say when they are dating someone and none of their friends can understand why so they say "Oh well!! Opposites attract!"  I'm not really sure about that in love BUT in this mani yes, opposites DO attract!
Remember my jeweled ruffian from couple weeks ago?  I loved it so much I stamped on it??? Well I am still loving the Ruffian mani's so I did another one. This time I took really affordable polishes---LA Color Craze Live--a dollar store polish and WetnWild Craze Nocturnal--a $1.99 polish and turned them into a million bucks!!! Check this out readers!
As you can see after I did the Nocturnal I mattefied it!  I know it looks black here but really Nocturnal is a super dark blue--one coat would have kept it blue I think but I wanted at least 2 coats!  I love the contrast of the shiny metallic and the matte effect!
You can really see the "bling" of Live in the crescent here
I love looking at it like this!
Here it is with flash!
Here are the polishes I used for this mani--LA Colors Live, WetnWild Morbid and Essie's Matte About You
And one more!! Side by Side non flash and flash comparison!
I really love this mani readers!  I'm not sure what I'll do next--will I stamp on it or just do something new???? Stay tuned!!!

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you all have a fantastic day!


  1. I love this look :) Ruffians can be so classy and you nailed it! Just did my first ruffian, didn't turn out quite as good.. haha..

  2. Thanks Swaafie! I'm hooked on them I think! I totally agree with you too I think they are very classy!

  4. Love this! I just got into ruffians! Theyre so much fun.

  5. I like! I'm like the crescent! It's like a reverse moon mani

  6. I love it! It would look awesome with some silver stamping, can't wait to see what you do.

    1. I'm loving the metallic silver with the matte so so far no stamping BUT you never know with me lol!
