Lazy 15 Nail Challenge - Day 6 Favourite Colour

It's Day 6 of the Lazy 15 Challenge!
Today's challenge is Favourite Colour which for me is pink.

I have a feeling the colour pink is going to be quite popular for todays challenge!
I have always loved pink, I went through a phase in my teens of pretending to hate it because it just wasn't cool to like pink. Then when I had my daughter in my early 20's it seemed like my entire life turned pink! Any other mums find that? As soon as you have a baby girl you live in this sort of pink haze for at least 2-3 years. My daughter is almost 6 now and is slowly starting to realise there are other colours!
Also my wedding, two and a half years ago, was pink. Not bright in your face pink, it was a soft dusky, vintage, pale pink. My absolute favourite shade of pink.

Which brings me on to the nails.







I got the idea for these nails from THIS YouTube video by JaeMarie2008 who has loads of fab nail art that you might like on her channel.

I did this a little differently to the video.
First I taped off the triangle st the cuticle. Then I applied two coats of Boots 17 Sweet Kisses and removed the tape. When that had dried I re-taped them and applied Barry M Rose Quartz Glitter with a small nail art brush, arranging the glitter in a gradient effect. Then to tidy up the edge I finished with a line of Barry M Pink Silver Glitter at the edge and topcoated with Seche Vite.

I kinda wish I had these nails for my actual wedding as they would have been perfect but I wasn't into nail art at all then!

Next up for Day 7 of the Lazy 15 Challenge is Feminine Nails.
