Lattice Tips with Tutorial

Hello you beautiful! This is just a simple design to spruce up a plain old manicure. Just add some strokes in the form of the letter X to your tips to create a simple lattice design. 



First you want to choose a base polish and apply enough coats for full opacity. I used two coats of L.A. Girl Metal nail polish in Deep Sea Mica. It’s a gorgeous blue green colour. 


Next you want to get a white stripper polish to make the first part of your “X”. I’m using Nail fusion Basic white. This is a brand of polish made by Sacha Cosmetics. Since I’m right handed it was easier to make the strips going from left to right first. So with a small amount of white polish on your stripper brush add four to five diagonal lines as shown below. 


Now to add the other part of the “X”. I found it easier to complete this part with my hand laid flat out instead of making a fist. The main point here is that you want to form your “X” but overlapping a bit to form your lattice design. Add top coat and you’re all done!


Now you can change up this design with endless possibilities of base polish and stripper polish. Just make sure you get enough contrast between the two colours of your choice. Enjoy, until next time!
Happy Lattice!
XOXO

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

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.

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…
