Happy 50th Independance T&T Nails

Hello gorgeous! This is just a simple design using the colours of our nail flag to celebrate the momentous occasion of Trinidad and Tobago on its 50th year of Independence! I will be wearing this design right up to the actual day of Independence on August 31st (the day before I start my 31 days plus bonus nail art challenge). 



The base coat is my favourite red colour; China Glaze Ruby Pumps, two coats to ensure it's really opaque. Then I just applied using a white stripper brush and China Glaze's White on White nail polish the upside down "V". Start at one of the corners of the tip and go up about 1/3 of the nail for the point of the "V" and then back down again to the other nail corner. Super simple.



Now add a black in the same pattern under this white line. I used Jordana Pop Art in Black for this. Repeat using another white line underneath. In our national flag we have two white lines with a black line in the middle so this design is symbolic of that. I emphasized the tip with just a hint of red to complete my design.

Happy Independence Day!

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.
