Nail Challenge Day 1: Red T&T Flag Nails

And were off! Day One of the Nail Challenge begins with red nails and how appropriate for me at this time since Trinidad and Tobago celebrated its 50th Independence Day just yesterday! My version of red nails is symbolic of the colours and pattern of the national flag.



It's really simple to achieve too! I used my favourite red polish, China Glaze Ruby Pumps. I can't tell you how many times I've used this colour before. It's really the best red I've found to date. 


You just need two coats of this red. Allow to dry properly and then bring out your dotting tool. Apply two rows of white dots that sandwiches a row of black dots. This is the symbolism of the national flag but with a twist in that it is not in straight lines but semicircles. 





I loved these so much I even entered them into a local nail art competition being put on by Wonderful World which is where I get most of my polishes anyway! 

Stay tuned for Day two: Orange Nails and be sure to stop by Jayne's blog Cosmetic Proof and Traci's blog DrinkCitra to see what gorgeous designs they also created for this challenge! 


Happy Red Nails!
XOXO

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…

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.
