Scalloped Nails/Ruffle Nails Experiment!

I have seen the Scalloped or Ruffle nail trend everywhere recently and I really wanted to try it out for myself. I didn’t sit down with a plan, and you can tell but this was just an experiment to see what I could do with it. This is the result!

I had some slight issues with polish from the end circles flooding into the cuticle which you can see as well keeping the circles the same size but practice makes perfect! I will definitely try again. Additionally my NYC topcoat bubbled a LOT so please excuse that! I will use a different top coat until I get chance to repurchase.



I think I perfect the ruffles at an angle like on the pinkie but the middle finger is nice too. On the ring finger I think the gap between the first colour and second colour is too big and the index finger… let’s not talk about that one! It is a total fail. I think I meant to add orange as the third colour again but clearly I forgot…



I used lots of polishes, so I will quickly list. If you want to know which colour is which specifically, please ask. Barry M – Indigo, Blueberry Ice Cream, Berry Ice Cream, Pure Turquoise; Orly – Oui; OPI – Who The Shrek Are You?; China Glaze – Papaya Punch; NYC – Uptown, Greenwich Village, Price Street; Color Club – White; Revlon – Ocean Breeze, No 7 – Purple Fantasy, Lilac Chill; Miss Sporty – Teal (?) and Pop Fiction.



Finally, do you prefer plain backgrounds to photos like this or the coloured or patterned paper that I used in pervious posts? Thank you for your feedback, reading and to anyone who voted for me to win Makeup Savvy’s Nail Challenge!
