I know I wanted to do another pie design and I wanted to base it on Pumpkin Pie for the Challenge Your Nail Art Challenge. At first I did brownish-orange polish (OPI Schnapps Out Of It) and then dotted on a neutral polish around the cuticles to give the illusion of a pie shell. I didn't love it. I decided I wanted to re-do it, thinking I just didn't like the way I did the shell. I wanted it more rounded. Then I thought of the Ruffian manicure. I have never done one and thought this might be just the occasion to do so. So using Pumpkin Pie colors I came up with this.
When I first did it I was amazed with myself and then after wearing it a few days I wasn't so sure. Now, looking back at the pictures, I like it again. I think with this color combo and the neutral being close to the cuticle it makes for some weird everyday nail art, but seeing it in pictures, I am really happy with it.
I used Julep Zoe and Florence. I used the Julep Plié Wand and that gave me so much more control with the polish. There wasn't even much difference between my left and right hands. Have I told you before how much I love my Plié Wand? The last picture is in the shade for reference.
