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

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!

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.
