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

Now, I did plan to have regular swatches of both of these with today's mani, but I haven't had the time to do them yet, so they will be coming in a separate post later on,  Instead, I did a nice and easy gradient with the two of them, using the bottle brushes.  I put Aziraphale (bronze-gold-green) on the top of each nail, and then Crowley (green-blue) on the lower portion of each nail.  For some reason, i found it really hard to get a half-decent photo of these, especially in their "resting" colours.  (the colour that we see the most of when we wear a multichrome)  I've done my best, but I'm afraid you're mostly going to see the colours from weirder angles. :/




Hopefully I can get better pictures when I swatch them properly, but I hope you guys can still see just how pretty they are!  I was actually planning to stamp over this gradient, but in the end I just couldn't do it, so I left it as it was.  :D

Huge, huge thank you's to Morven for this gorgeous duo! <3  Unfortunately, as this is an exclusive duo, you won't be able to find these in the shop when it re-opens, however, you definitely should go and have a look at her blog, as she does paint some very awesome nail art as well as making pretty polish!

So, that's all from me today, but believe it or not, I actually have a few mani's to share with you guys in the next week or so.  I've been missing this blog more and more the longer I was away, so I'm really trying to get back into it now.  I've even made a start on updating my Instagram which has missed the last couple of months worth of mani's!  Eeeeeeeeeeeeep!
In the meantime, as always, I would love it if you guys checked out what the other ladies managed to come up with for this weeks prompt by visiting the thumbnails below.
