Simple Tribal Nails


Even though I’ve never been one to go with the flow, I seem to be following trends lately. Nail inspired by tribal prints are absolutely gorgeous and I couldn’t help but try to do this for myself. Would you care to join me? Here are some pretty simple steps. Feel free to change up the colours. I have been in love with these two metallic shades.
Step one: Apply base coat if using a dark shade. I applied China Glaze’s Strong adhesion base coat followed by two coats of Orly’s Stone Cold. 
Step two: Using another color of your choice, apply a strip of that colour down the middle. I choose L.A. Girl metallic nail colour in Antique gold. Quick tip, make sure your base colour and this second strip colour are contrasting ones for that pop. At this point I wanted to stop since my two colours were stunning on their own! But let’s move forward. 
Step three: Draw black lines to the edges of where the two colours meet each other. Try the Sally Hansen nail art pen in black if you have shaky hands like me. 
Step four: Finish you design by drawing zig zag lines within the two black lines and add dots within each triangle. You’re done!
Wasn’t that super easy? I can see myself trying out more variations with different colours and lines. Following trends can be fun! Give it a try!
Happy Tribal Nails!

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

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.
