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!
XOXO

  5. I like how it looks with purple. It's a nice little twist, instead of the same old blue.

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.
