Ruffian Dotticure: December’s NCC #2

This weekend was a busy one, taking care of my sick dog. He ate something that didn’t agree with him at all. So I played mama to an unhappy puppy, and I didn’t get to┬áthe many manicures and blog posts I had planned on completing! Therefore, my second dotticure for December’s NCC is a simple one!

I decided to do a dotted version of the ruffian mani. I’ve actually never done a ruffian, but I love the look – so classy and simple. I was worried that this one would come out a bit boring, but I really am loving it!

Dat base color tho! I mean, wow! I used Indigo Bananas Electric Unicorns as that stunning base color. It’s a perfect deep lavender with itty bitty silvery green flakies. Those flakies give the polish a gorgeous shimmery depth to it without looking too frosty. I love it! Indigo Bananas really knows how to do a polish right! ­čÖé

The dots are a coordinating darker purple. It’s the Sephora brand (not Formula X or SOPI) and is called VooDoo Doll. My camera wanted to capture the whole mani a bit more blue than it actually is in person.

Well I just love this manicure! I think Electric Unicorns really stole the show here, don’t you? Do you like this take on a ruffian mani?

Holo Humpday: Different Dimension Copper-Bottomed

Happy day before Thanksgiving (to my US lovelies or anyone who just loves turkey!)! I have a quick post for you today with a gorgeous metallic holo. Different Dimension recently put out the Heavy Metals collection with 6 different metallic holos and 2 glitter toppers. I picked up two of the holos because HOLO ALL THE THINGS! I got Copper-Bottomed and Bold As Brass, which actually look very similar. But if you look more closely, Bold as Brass is a bit more brown and Copper-Bottomed is more orangey/ penny-colored.

Isn’t Copper-Bottomed so pretty?! It looks like a brand new penny covered in holo goodness. And even though it leans a bit metallic, there’s no noticable brushstrokes.

And the linear holo is real strong too! I was happily surprised that this color worked nicely with my skintone. This type of coppery color could really be hit or miss for me, but I really love it!

And here’s a closeup:

Well I love it! What do you think? Did you get any of the Heavy Metals collection? Which is your favorite? I’m regretting not getting Heart of Rose Gold, but there are always holiday and birthday presents right?

Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! Hope you have a lovely day filled with yummy food and good company!
