ABC Challenge: C is for Colourful China Glaze Crackle Nails

What another challenge? I must be nuts or just a huge nail polish addict right? I'll take the latter please! I thought this was a brilliant challenge and didn't want to miss out on this one so here I am taking part in the ABC challenge. For more information on this challenge please visit the Llama Nails on Facebook. This week the letter is C. My C stands for Colourful, China Glaze, Crackle Nails with a tutorial in case you're interested to create this design for yourself. 



Here's a look at all the China Glaze polishes used to create this design.


So first you want to start off with the Strong adhesion base coat to prevent the nails from staining and then one opaque coat of Liquid Leather.


Next you want to add Platinum Pieces, a silver crackle to parts of the black base coat like this. 


Now repeat using another colour: Glam-More, a fuchsia pink crackle.


You see a pattern here right? Repeat with another colour. Here is Oxidised Aqua crackle.


And now for my final colour to complete any open black space: add a purple crackle called Fault Line.


Clean up any mistakes and add your Fast Forward top coat to bring on the shine! 



Now feel free to express yourself in terms of how many colours used and how big your patches of crackle colour used. I would love for you to head on over to Gorgeois to see her gorgeous Shatter Mosaic which is where I got this idea from.

 
Happy C- Challenge!
XOXO

Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Hello Bakers! I've been quite the busy bee lately baking up a storm in my baking classes. Today's post is a simple pineapple upside down cake. Enjoy!

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

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…
