Flower Fields

So did you like my tribal nails? Or maybe you preferred my pink pastel ones?  Well if not give me another chance with my flower fields nails. Inspired by my nieces again! At only 8 years old, Abi is very creative and she constantly wants to do more designs with me on the weekend. We bond over these things. Did I mention she loves pink? A girl after my own heart! She insisted my next nail design had to have pink and since I have been into plants lately, well here’s what we did. 
It’s a very simple design and if you want to try it, stay tuned!

Step 1: Use a sheer blue colour as your base coat. This represents the soft sky. I used Sinful Colors Swedish Blue. You can also use a more opaque sky blue. 
Step 2: Use a dark green stripper polish to paint in your grassy fields. Simple freehand strokes will do find. No need to be perfect but alternate the strips in direction and height for a more natural grassy field. 
Step 3: Using a nail dotter and an opaque pink polish like OPI’s Pink Friday, make dots to random ends of the grass.  
Step 4: Using the dotting tool make 4 or 5 dots around the initial dot to form your flowers. You don’t have to make many flowers. Leave some as just one dot to represent buds. Add a sheer white in the middle of your flowers just for some definition. Add your favourite top coat (Seche Vite for me) and we’re all done! 
Happy Flower Fields!

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.
