Patriotic Olympics Nails

Hello Beautiful! I've caught the Olympics fever and being a patriotic person I thought it would be appropriate to do some matching nails to show my support for my local team.

So first I painted my nails all white with China Glaze White on White nail polish with the exception of the pinky finger that was painted red with China Glaze Go Crazy Red.


The red nail serves are a base for the national flag of Trinidad and Tobago! Our flag is pretty easy to replicate; red base, black thick center strip starting from the top left hand corner with two white smaller strips on both sides of the black. 
The thumb finger shows the Olympic rings with the year. This was done using acrylic paint and a toothpick. 


My favourite nail!
OK so the remaining nails are just right for the three medals that everyone is striving for. For that perfect circle, you want to apply your polish onto clear tape; the non sticky side and wait for them to dry properly. Using a circle hole punch carefully punch through the polish and tape. Depending on your polish the both circles of polish and tape separate on their own. I used for the gold; Makeup Cherimoya Pebble beach Crystal sand nail lacquer in Emerald (Step 1). For the silver I used Milani PC girl and for the bronze I used Orly Chocolate Martini. For the purple tags for the medals, I mixed blue and red acrylic paints.



Are you doing any Olympics nail art? Oh I would love to see! Are you the patriotic type or will you jump ship? And for all you trini diehards or even if you're not, feel free to support our Olympics team by tweeting the hashtag #I4TANDT; 100,000 mentions by September 24th = $200,000 for our Olympians and Paralympians!

Happy Olympics!
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! 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. 

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.
