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).

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.

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…
