GOT Polish - Blue Ruffles

Hello, Fireflies!

Today's Golden Oldie Thursday challenge is a Ruffle mani, which is, of course, a striped mani done with a dotting tool, so that the stripes are, well, ruffled.  Natch.

Personally, I like Pointless Cafe's version on Instagram.

I started with Models Own Beth's Blue.  So gorgeous.  So temperamental.  So worth it.

First dotted layer - Sinful Colors Jolt, a bright robin's egg blue.  Great formula.  The color reminds me a bit of that Rockstar Nails fiasco from the Beauty Box 5 sub box.  This one is about $2 and is awesome.

Next, MAC Blue India, a muted grey-blue.  I love the artwork on the bottle. Lawd, I am making a mess, though.  Clean up on Aisle 9!

Finally, Zoya Sailor, a navy blue creme.  And, maybe a few dots of Beth's Blue to make the Ruffle a little more obvious.

Topcoat smooths it out and melds the layers together.

Rrrrrruffles have rrrrrrrridges! Such a fun mani to do, and hard to mess up.
