I'm back and 50 Shades of Ruffian

Helluuu ladies!

I'm not in blogger heaven and I hope you missed me!
I'm really sorry for my absence, but I have a busy life outside the blogging world at the moment. Hopefully I can post more now!

Today I have a ruffian manicure for you, done with polishes from the O.P.I. - Fifty Shades of Grey Collection!

Wow, I had to scroll back very far to find these pics *lol*. I did this mani about an month ago, but couldn't find the time to post them!

Looking at them now, I want my long nails back. At the moment, I'm wearing short nails because they are more practical. And I don't know, if you feel the same, but I don't like the click-e-ti-click sound, nails cause on keyboards, when they are too long... I can't explain, why it annoys me, but it does! :D

I love how these turned out!
It was the first time I tried to do a ruffian manicure by only using the brushes from the polish - you know what I mean, no, doesn't surprise me... I try to explain! :D
I started by painting my nails with Embrace the Gray - it's a medium gray creme polish, which is nicely opaque in two coats.
Then I took Dark Side of the Mood and painted over the base with the brush from the bottle and as you can see, didn't paint the whole nail. This is a bit tricky... if you haven't done this you have to be careful, take it slow and paint slightly curved. I applied a second coat to smooth it out.
Last but not least, I added some dots with My Silk Tie and sealed it with Glisten&Glow HK Girl.

Oh myy... I love Dark Side of the Mood and I used it quite often lately.

So, opinion time!
What do you think of these? Like or hate?
Have you ever done a ruffian manicure? What's your favourite technique to achieve this look?
