Hello, again!

Hey, guys!  So, I'm sorry about the super long hiatus - I actually can't remember the last time I blogged.  Long story short, I enrolled in some business training in the summer and really started to step up my game with Sarah's Sparkles.  I've been working some seriously ungodly hours and just haven't been able to find the time to paint my nails, never mind blog about it.  Boo, me!  I kept meaning to pop over here, and let you guys know where I was, but I suck, and never quite managed it.  I'm really sorry. :'( I hope nobody worried about me too much.

Unfortunately, due to some serious neglect on my part, my own nails have fallen into a state of disrepair.  Seriously you guys, they're gross - you do not want to see them!!  But, I have missed blogging so, so much in these last few months, I really want to find a way to squeeze both things in.  So, for now, I'm going to be posting my mani's exclusively on press on's.  This way, I only need to find the extra time to write the post.  The nails and the photos need to be done for the shop anyway, and what's a little half an hour here and there to type up a post, eh!?  Now, I know that many of you aren't too keen on press on nails, so of course I'd understand if I lost a few of you, but I'm hoping most of you will stick around.  I missed you guys!!!

A2Z - U is for....Unusual ~China Glaze Electric Nights Neon Rainbow Leaves Nail Art~ (with tutorial)

 Hiya lovelies!  Sorry it's been all quiet around here for the last week or so, but today I have my mani for this weeks A2ZNails to share with you.  So, the prompt is "U is for Unusual", and at first I was completely stumped on what to do.  Then on Friday, I received all 9 of the creams from the China Glaze Electric Nights collection in the post, so I decided to find a way to use those........

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 :)
