Camouflage Nails

Attention! Stand at ease soldier with these camouflage nails. You don’t want your bare nails sticking out like a sore thumb (pun intended!) so let’s cover them up! 


This is a super easy nail design. I tried it using a basic colours found in army outfits but you can of course choose to do this with other colours. For example if you choosing to do a blue camouflage design, you will need a black, dark, medium and light blue nail polishes. Let me show you how mine was done!


Start off with a neutral base coat colour. Here I’m using China Glaze Kalahari Kiss from the Safari collection. 


Using a dotting tool, draw on random spots using a dark brown colour. I’m using China Glaze Street Chic from the Metro collection. At this point it looks like a giraffe skin! 


Now add some green spots using the dotting tool covering slightly over some of the brown spots. Here I’m using China Glaze Agro from the Hunger games collection. 


Finish off the camouflage look by adding black spots randomly just like you did with the green. Here I’m using China Glaze Liquid Leather. 


Seal off your design with your favourite top coat for a simple yet stunning look! I’m definitely repeating this one but as a blue camo next time!

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. 

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.
