Christmas Glitter Red & Green Nail Combo


Christmas is inching closer and so what a festive way to bring the holidays home but to use the traditional colours of red and green on your nails. Adding glitter to that makes for hands and feet that will demand a second look while doing your Christmas shopping!
Love Marilyn is a red and silver glitter polish from the China Glaze Eye Candy collection. The red particles are smaller glitter while the silver specks are hexagonal in shape and bigger glitter pieces than the red ones. Two coats were enough to give a densely packed glitter nail. The polish itself dried very quickly between coats which is great for the busy holiday time. I opted for just the plain polish but you can add a coloured base coat (perhaps gold) underneath this to make the red & sliver glitter particles pop. 

 
L.A. Girl Glitter Addict polish in Purge (gross name right?) is a beautiful green glitter polish. It has fine green glitter with larger hexagonal shaped green glitter suspended in the clear polish. The smaller green particles are about the same size as the red ones in Love Marilyn but the bigger hexagonal green glitter is way bigger (maybe 3 times more)  than the silver particles. I used three coats to get a densely packed glitter nail. 
 
Both polishes I got at Wonderful World. The classic Christmas colours are sure to brighten up your holidays. Enjoy your shopping and flaunt those nails girls!
XOXO

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
