Nail Challenge Day 18: Smokey Half Moons

I've never really ventured into the half moons. But now that I am here I truly like them. They are simple but elegant. Pair them with contrasting colours to see the true beauty of this design.

I first applied one coat of Sinful Colors You Just Wait, which is a soft pink with an iridescent shimmer. Next I applied some binder reinforcement stickers onto the nails to block out a half moon shape before applying China Glaze Smoke and Ashes (from the Hunger Games collection).



And only because I have two of the sweetest little angels as nieces, I graciously took their advice and spruced it up even more with these cute little stars.


Stay tuned for Day 19: Galaxies 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 Half Moons!
XOXO

  3. I like how both parts of the half moon design have matching shimmer! It's a nice added touch to a regular half moon :)

Welcome back everyone! Today I'm sharing my replication of the Wilton method to making Royal Icing and some simple decorations you can make with the Wilton tip 21. This is an open star tip and can be paired with a simple leaf tip like a Wilton 352 to make small drop flowers.

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.
