Galaxy Nails (with tutorial)

Here I go again, trying out some of the latest nail trends! I think this one so far is my favourite. Would you like to enter my galaxy with me? It’s really easy to do, I could show you how. 

So let’s get started! First you will need a dark blue polish for your base colour. I’m using Orly Stone Cold. Two coats for an opaque colour. You can use a flat dark blue but if it has some shimmer in it, then that would be perfect! I find blues usually stain my nails so go ahead and apply a clear base coat before the blue.

Now that you have the blue down, get a small piece of sponge. I found a foundation sponge and cut little pieces off of this. Using a tweezer, clamp down your piece of sponge and dip it into some gold coloured polish (I use a painter palette for ease). The polish I used here was Milani Gold Lamé. You are sponging on the colour in a diagonal line. This is what you should have. 

Ok next you repeat the process of sponging on the colour but this time using a copper coloured polish and going slightly over the gold line on both sides. Don’t fully sponge over the gold. I’m using L.A.Girl Metal polish in Copper Alloy. 

So you repeat the sponging again using a pink polish to overlap slightly on the copper colour. I used China Glaze Naked (not shown) and then follow by L.A. Girl metal polish in Obsidian, which is a metallic black.

So now you’re all done with the sponging part. Super easy so far right? You have you basic galaxy down but you can go ahead and spruce it up with add tiny white dots if you like. If you don’t like the diagonal lines you can also sponge in circles instead. 

Apply a top coat to seal in your design and you’re all done. I’m using Orly In a Snap which is working really well since my Seche Vite got super thick on me. Let’s see if this one will do the same halfway through the bottle. 

So that’s all folks! Hope you enjoyed my take on one of the latest nail design. It’s really fun to be able to take something and make it your own. Until next time and next nail trend!

Happy Galaxy!

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.
