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

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.
