31DC2014 - Day 06 - Violet Nails - Ruffian

6 September 2014

It's Day 06 of the 31 Day Challenge (31DC2014) and today's prompt is Violet Nails.

Purple is usually a colour that doesn't look great against my skin tone... especially the lighter purples that I love in the bottles! To really highlight the colour prompt, I thought a simple ruffian would look great the darker outline would provide a barrier so that the lighter purple colour and my skin tone don't clash!

Initially I picked a much lighter purple as the main colour but it looked very pink and too light... AND so many bubbles! So I picked up a classic favourite, play date by essie as I knew it would not give me any problems.

I started with 1 coat of Miss You-niverse by OPI and then free-handed the ruffian with play date by essie. I had to apply 2 coats of play date to achieve the opaqueness and cover the darker purple. I then used a detail brush to clean up the edges of the ruffian and finished off the look with 1 coat of good to go top coat by essie.

Simple and beautiful... I love this look even though it's purple! What do you think? Please follow other bloggers that are participating in the 31 Day Challenge on social media using the hashtag #31DC2014 and check back tomorrow for Day 07.
