Nail Challenge Day 19: Purple Galaxy

Enter my Purple Galaxy! I love using purples of any kind for a nail design and since I already did my first galaxy nails using blue as the base I thought it only appropriate to try purple instead for this one. 


Woot! Woot! So there are so many polishes I used to achieve this effect! Ok I'm exaggerating, just 5 polishes and some white acrylic paint. I first started off with two coats of China Glaze Smoke and Ashes which was from their Hunger Games collection. It's basically a really dark forest green with sparkle that comes off as almost black.


Next I sponged on a lilac colour called China Glaze Sweet Hook from their Electropop collection. Start sponging whereever you want but keep it small. Next around the edges of Sweet Hook I sponged on a darker purple colour called China Glaze Spontaneous. Repeat sponging around Spontaneous with a blue shade called China Glaze Frostbite. Complete the look with a thin coat of Sinful Colors I Miss you (a purple glitter) all over the nail followed by some small white acrylic dots and then lastly your favourite top coat.



 
Stay tuned for Day 20: Watermarbled 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 Purple Galaxy!

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.

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…
