The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Stripes - Breast Cancer Awareness Stripes

I have my last design for the Nail Challenge Collaborative's stripe theme!  I kind of dropped the ball on my Breast Cancer Awareness manicure this month.  I did share the new OPI BCA set but I felt that I needed to do a design dedicated to BCA.  This summer someone very close to me was diagnosed and I had never been so scared.  Luckily they caught it quickly and within a few months she completed her treatment.  I pray every day that it won't get worse or come back.  I dedicate this design to her.  

I started with two coats of Barry M Rose Hip.  This was the first time using this shade and it was a little disappointing.  This is the first and only Gelly that was thin and streaky.

I added a coat of Sonoma Nail Art Tiny Tangerines to my thumb, middle and ring finger.

I added my stripes using an image from MoYou London Fashionista 05 and Barry M Pink Punch.  I love the chevron and zig zag images on this plate!  

I added my BCA ribbons using BM321 and Pink Punch.

And who doesn't like more glitter! I added Pink Clockwork to my index and pinkie fingers.

I love this non-traditional stripe design!  For me, this is a fantastic way to show my support for Breast Cancer, pink and glitter!
