A2Z: T is for.......Texture (tape mani with video tutorial)

Hiya lovelies!  Sorry today's post is a day late guys, I had to wait for the daylight to get some pictures.  I actually received a new daylight bulb in the post yesterday, but I must have gripped it too hard when I was putting it in my lamp, as it shattered in my hand!!  Luckily I managed not to cut myself though, so no real harm done.  It does mean that I'm still without a proper lighting source for a few more days though.  I'm only just getting my blogging mojo back at the moment, so I'm going to be posting crappy photo's like these for a couple more days.  Don't hate me :p

52Week Pick 'n' Mix Challenge - Pink & Orange, and Mosaic/Stained Glass (with video tutorial)

Hiya lovelies!  So today I'm jumping back in to the 52 Week Pick 'n' Mix Challenge.  I'm not going to try and catch up or anything, but I've really missed this challenge, so here we are.   As luck would have it, I switched my daylight bulb on to take some photo's this week, and it decided it was a great time to die.  So, huge apologies for the phone pictures with flash you see here today.  It did a better job of the neon colours than my point and shoot usually does though, so that's something. I also still managed to get a video tutorial made for this, which is awesome!

A2Z: S is for....Silver (with video tutorial!)

 Hiya lovelies!  So, today I have my mani for this weeks A2Z, but more about that later because I have exciting news!  I made a YouTube channel!!!!!!!!!  Oh, yes! I really don't like doing regular tutorials, so I've been considering this for a while.  I'm actually filming on my phone for now, but I'm hoping to eventually get a DSLR and start filming like a pro!   If you want to subscribe to my channel you can do so here.  (opens in a new tab)  I'll also pop the video down at the bottom for your viewing pleasure.... (or at least I hope)

R is for...... Redo/Reboot/Recycle/Recreate

Hiya lovelies, and welcome to this weeks A2Z.  We're up to R today, and the prompt is "Redo/Reboot/Recycle/Recreate". I wasn't sure what to do for this at first, but then I thought it might be pretty cool to do a pair of matching mani's, where one is essentially a reboot of the other, so here we are :)

A2Z - Q is for..... (Pretty) Quirky

*Products in this post were won in a fellow bloggers giveaway.  Yay!
Hiya lovelies!  So today I have my post for this weeks A2Z.  The prompt is "Q is for Quirky", and I knew exactly what I was going to do!  I was lucky enough to win a pair of stunning, exclusive, multichrome flakies from the lovely Morven @ Pretty Quirky in her recent giveaway, so I've been holding onto them for the last few weeks so I could use them today.  It wasn't easy, trust me. :p

A2Z: P is for......Pale

Hiya lovelies!  So today I have a quick post for you - it's my "P is for Pale" mani for last weeks A2Z.  I went very literal and did a pretty pastel gradient with some white stamping.  Very pale indeed!
