China Glaze Glam-More Crackle Glitter Tips

Glitter can be so much fun. If you are not planning to get a full nail of glitter, then simply add them to your tips like you would in a French manicure. Add a flower accent and you’re all done for these easy simple glitter tips. Glam-more is a gorgeous fuchsia coloured crackle glitter polish. 

I really started off trying to get the tips to crackle only but the polish was quite watery at the beginning so the cracks were barely visible. So to make the polish a regular glitter one instead of a crackle glitter I just went over again with another thicker coat of polish on the tips. The formula seems to thicken after a few uses. It does crack but it seems to do so better over larger areas and after the formula thicken up a bit. This was the first manicure done with China Glaze’s Glam-More Crackle Glitter.

Start with a base coat to make remove of glitter easier
Glitter applied in two coats over tips and one coat on accent finger. Add top coat.
I didn’t quite like the look of the full nail with the crackle so I just removed it and made it a glitter tip instead. So much better now! 

You probably guessed I just couldn’t stop there and then added the pink flowers to it. Using a nail dotting tool, I applied OPI’s Pink Friday in the shape of a flower and the middle dot of the China Glaze Glam-More crackle glitter to tie it all together. 

Hope you enjoyed. How do you wear your glitter?
Happy Glitter Glam!

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. 

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…

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.
