This is a simple manicure but I really like it. When I did my Blue Midnight jewelry nail art I ended up painting my left hand in Pure Ice Ruffled Sheets. I love silver polish but it was feeling washed out with my other hand being so colorful and fancy. Here is Ruffled Sheets on it's own at two coats, with no top coat. As you can see it dries shimmery-matte. (You can enter to win a bottle, along with two more shades!)
A very nice type of brushed-steel metallic and it stands out as unique in my collection of silvers. My eyes kept wandering to my new bottle of Orly Miss Conduct, though. I considered taking Ruffled Sheets off and redoing my nails with the Orly, but instead I layered it. This way I only needed one coat of Miss Conduct, which has a jelly-type base that let the metallic of Ruffled Sheets shine through. It was hard to capture the effect...
Miss Conduct dries shiny and with Poshe topcoat added my nails turned into little glass jewels. The glitter is fantastic: holographic microshards such as found in the Milani 3D polishes and Zoya Aurora and Storm. It helped bring out the Ruffled Sheets accent nail made shiny with topcoat. Miss Conduct is now among my favorite pink polishes because of the awesome color and perfect formula. Ruffled Sheets has proven itself to be good for nail art and good for layering. So, I'd call this left-hand-mani a success!
