Seven Deadly Sins Challenge: Week 4 - Sloth

Hey everyone! Today I'm back with another seven deadly sins challenge post and this week it's 'Sloth'. The prompt for this was 'dont try too hard but explain how to do something really easy [tutorial]' so here you go! I decided to create an easy gradient youtube tutorial, with 'Chalk Dust' by Maybelline over the top. I'm pretty sure this is the only thing I'm going to be rocking on my nails during exam time as they're super easy to create. But dont worry I have a load of posts lined up for you so this isn't all you'll see. 

The base colours for this nail were Clinique 'Juiced up', 'Splish Splash', '70° and Sunny' and 'Pinkini' which i shall be reviewing soon, and also 'Hula Skirt', which I reviewed here, and then I sponged 'Raindrop' by NYC, Barry M 'Passion Fruit', Barry M 'Prickly Pear', and Barry M 'Cobalt Blue', all topped off with a coat of 'Chalk Dust' by Maybelline (a much cheaper, and bigger, alternative to the new Loreal black and white glitter for all your Brits)

And here is the Youtube tutorial (excuse the weird intro, I didn't have time to record one and my friend edited the video so she had to mash one together, oops!). For some reason it wont let me add the video to this blogpost but I'll try again tomorrow if you're too lazy to click the link!

What do you think? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I think you did great!! :)
    And the fact that you say in the video how one doesn't need to be 100% neat doing the gradients made me sigh in relief, as I don't master the technique yet, but would love to rock this look ;)
    Love the colour combos on all nails, index and middle finger being my favourite **

  2. Wow this turned out really fun!

  3. what a great idea to put the glitter onto a gradient! awesome!

  4. This looks so pretty! I love how you've combined different coloured gradients with the topcoat! :)

  5. aaawww love love love that! so crazy, just right for me ;)


I absolutely love to read all your comments, they make my day! So please do not hesitate to tell me what you think, but I ask that you don't link spam to your blog in your comment, thankyou so much everyone!
