Ruffian Style American Apparel Dance with Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like

I did this ruffian style mani using American Apparel's Dance as a base with Deborah Lippmann's I Know What Boys Like over top. Dance took 4 coats to achieve opacity... 4! That's just too much I think although not unusual for a light shade like this. I Know What Boys Like went on opaque and lovely. I used two coats. I adore this shade. It's a near dupe of American Apparel's Mount Royal and fairly similar to OPI's Dating A Royal, both of which I own, but I'm okay with that because I love the colour. It's slightly lighter than both but not by much. I really like the way it turned out. Dance is very close to the colour of my skin tone so in a way I thought it made my fingers look longer. I had to fight the urge to put a dot of white and black on the end to turn these into blue eyes. Maybe another time :)
