In an effort to embrace my new "whatevs, mistakes are cool too" attitude, I tried something new. I've been intrigued by ruffian manicures ever since I saw my first one. Recently the Claire's here finally had a bottle of Candy Shop and I have never picked something up off a shelf so fast. Depending on who you ask, Claire's Candy Shop may or may not be an exact dupe for the Deborah Lippmann of the same name. I don't own the Deborah Lippmann version so all I can say is the Claire's is a fun polish. I'm usually not big on pink but this stuff is like a birthday cupcake in a bottle, it just yells party. Since it was so bright and happy I went for the most opposite thing I could find for my other color, black! Granted my black has sparkles in it cause I don't actually own a flat black creme (shame on me), but I think it's still okay. A polish packed this full of glitter probably wasn't the best choice to try a ruffian for the first time but like I said, it's the whatevs mistakes are cool phase. Looky!

I am having a lot of fun with this mani, even though it's not perfect. I'm in a party mood so it's pretty darn fitting if I do say so myself. This weekend is the first beta weekend for Guild Wars 2 and I am such a giant gaming nerd, it's kind of sad how excited I am. Thanks for reading everybody, I'm off to hop around the house like an excited idiot while my game client finishes downloading!
