Video Tutorial: Azature Midnight in Paris Ruffian Manicure

Beauty, Fashion, Fitness & Nails



Hey there nail enthusiasts!
Today’s manicure was again inspired by that super cool half moon nail art shape called the “Ruffian” Manicure.

Feeling on the darker side I decided to try out one of my favorite collections by Azature called Midnight in Paris.  (click on the link to check out the entire collection)
Take a look at my video below on how to create a simple ruffian mani!  It’s so easy!
In the nails below i took the design one step further and added a layer of translucent glittery nail polish by Azature called Glacier over the top for an amazing sparkly effect!
I might not be in Paris but this manicure definitely feels like it’s Midnight in Paris!
Check it out!



Here’s what you’ll need!
Clear Base Coat
Azature Alloy – Platinum base color
Azature Boudoir – Almost Black
Azature Glacier – Translucent confetti glitter jelly


Step 1:  After applying a clear base coat to your nails.  Apply 1 layer of Azature Alloy over each nail.  Don’t forget to cover the edge of each nail to prevent chipping.

Step 2: As shown in the video.  Follow the shape of your cuticle leaving space at the base using Azature Boudoir.  It takes about two swipes to get a flawless Ruffian tip.




Step 3: Lastly add 1 coat of Azature Glacier over each nail.  The glitter flecks dissapear over the alloy but shine bright and twinkle over the black.
Top it all off with 1 coat of your favorite dry fast top coat for a flawless shine and a longer lasting manicure!
