Nail Challenge Day 2: Orange Nails

I have to admit I was a bit stumped for a while trying to figure out what to do for orange nails. My favorite orange polish at the moment is a burnt orange from Orly's Fired Up collection called Flicker. So I started off with two coats of Flicker but the other orange polishes were not to be left out so I decided on doing some watercoloured nails using orange colours. This is the final result!

So just to remind you on what Flicker looks like, here it is again! It is totally transformed by the use of the water coloured technique.

So all you need now is some acetone, a brush and some other orange coloured polishes. I completed my orange watercoloured nails using Santee Neon Orange, and China Glaze Orange You Hot? (from the Summer Neon Collection). I added just a tiny bit of white (China Glaze White on White) to create a bit of contrast between the oranges.

Stay tuned for Day three: Yellow 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 Orange Nails!

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.
