Plain Old Polish- Maybelline Express Finish in Outloud Lime

Retina burning green! Yes the name of this colour really says exactly how this colour appears in real life. It’s really beautiful and not a usual colour I would have in my stash. Remember I’m a pink and blue polish girl! It reminds me of Kermit the frog though. What do you think? 


Oh did I mention this was my first Maybelline polish? Yes I’m still in my branching out phase. Do you think this one will bowl over my love for China Glaze? Let’s find out together shall we! 


So despite its absolutely beautiful colour that is perfect for a summer time manicure, the application of this polish left much to be desire. The first coat was streaky. Ok no problem yet, usually a second coat does the trick, but no, not in this case. It took me three coats with the last one being much thicker than the first two thin coats to even out the application for a smooth colour. So ok, that wasn’t totally bad, but it gets worst. The bubbles appeared! Tiny little bubbles all over my gorgeous colour! 

Can you see the bubbles?
Gorgeous colour, but tiny bubbles!
Really bubbles? Oh that really annoyed me! Even with the top coat on I could see them. I was too disappointed to even test the wear and of course I had to go to work soon so this colour had to come off. 

 
So I’m really on the fence with this polish leaning towards falling over. But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t try Maybelline polishes again. Maybe it was just this polish that had issues. Despite its flaws the colour is too beautiful to ignore.
Happy Liming!
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.
