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

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.
