Wave of Polish - Pregnancy and Infant Loss #2

It must be Tuesday because I have another blue and pink,Wave of Polish, mani today :)  The polish auction is off and running today at http://waveofpolish.blogspot.com.au so if you haven't got your bids in, check it out now!  There's a heap of amazing polishes and more have been added since the auction started.
For today's manicure I wanted to go as pink as possible for my base colour and the polish that best fit that description is Pretty Serious The Pink One
It is seriously pink!  A hot hot hot neon pink with an electric blue flash through it. 
I was worried the camera would have trouble with the brightness of the pink but it's the blue shimmer that was hard to capture (and the jpg compression has made a mess of the photos).

This is two coats of the perfect formula I've come to expect from Pretty Serious with a layer of their Crystal Coat topcoat (from the Till Death Do Us Party! wedding set)
Then I tried my first ever one stroke nail art.  It was pretty much a fail as far as being one stroke went.  Turns out all the brushes I have are too long and stiff.  So I just did one butterfly.  It was blue and white but the pink shows through the blue so it looks more purple. 
The painting one stroke might have failed but I think outlining it in black helped pull it all together.  I used a toothpick to get the tiny little white dots and I dabbed some iridescent polish on the wings to catch the light.
Then I did a gradient overlay of Lynnderella Bride of Franken on all my tips and then another gradient of Lynnderella Forget You Not on all except my accent nails. 
Forget You Not is a periwinkle blue glitter topper with sparse pink and blue shimmer but it looks more lavender over The Pink One.
