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!

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…

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.
