Challenge Day 2: A 'Classic'

So here we are on day 2 of this lovely challenge. :) I hope you all enjoyed the first day's manicure. Today's challenge is a 'classic.' My thoughts were at first to do a modern twist on a french manicure. Then I remembered how much I just don't like them. ha ha On myself anyways. Then I was convinced I was going to do a really cool half moon design maybe using stamping plates. My plan only changed when I was looking at my intrieds and saw Wet n Wild Fast Dry Teal Of Fortune. I was just twirling the bottle under the light, basking in its glass flecky-ness, when I said out loud how great the golden flecks were. 

It all clicked after that point. I had never done a ruffian manicure before and thought these two colors would make it really pop. I know it's not perfect but for my first go at it, I think I did alright!

2 coats Color Club Gingerbread Man. 2 coats Teal of Fortune. Seche.

Aren't those gold flecks so yummy? :) Make sure you check out what the girls did for their Classic!
