Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ruffian

Hi there guys, I have late Valentine's day manicure, I started doing these too late cause everything on this blog is late right now, so this is mad late :/ I thought I'd came up with some genius Valentine's manicure idea. So I thought chocolate covered strawberries but the chocolate being a ruffian manicure. But then it's not genius and the execution is dodgy, but at least it looks cute in pictures.

My first ever ruffian manicure, it's not very good. I thought I'd use french manicure stickers, but I'm too lazy for that business so I freehanded it. It's not very good and same goes for the strawberries. Though not gonna lie I like the manicure in pictures even though it's very messy. I don't like strawberry nails very much and my red decided to make things thick, so my topcoat couldn't do much about that and that's why some parts are mad messed up.

I used toothpicks for the tops of the strawberries and the weird seeds. Otherwise I'd use the brushes of the nail polish and my white pen for the base of the seeds.

Brown: Paris Collection - Mauve Melody
Red: OPI - Dutch Tulips (it's getting gloopy :/)
Green: Illamasqua - Nomad
Dark Green: Rimmel - Block Your Green!
Neon Green and Random Green: China Glaze - I'm With The Lifeguard and Barry M - Greenberry
Yellow and white base: Rimmel - Sunshine and Lovely Me:Ex - White
Orange: Essie - Fear Or Desire

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day!! :)


  1. Ohh I spot some old strawberries (points at wrinkled ones) -- Haha!! Joking! Hope you don't mind ;) Hmm, I think your ruffians turned out great for a first time! Though, I'd prefer darker chocolate; the darker, the better! Yumm~ XD However, I do like the colours you used for the strawberries :D So bright and cheerful! ^.^

    1. Haha, they be old, I was impatient so it was my fault (but not completely, my polish was weirdly thick). I'm a white chocolate kind of gal, dark is slightly too bitter for me, but milk chocolate is definitely a great middle ground. Thanks, I thought bright strawberries would be fun :)
