Nail Challenge Day 21: Inspired by a Colour

I love being in the Caribbean with the bright colours everywhere all year round. For this challenge however I was inspired by the beautiful season of Fall that we don't really experience here. It just so happens that I got a few colours from the Orly Fired Up Fall 2012 collection and they did a tutorial on their facebook page that fueled this design.

So I first started by applying one coat of China Glaze Kalahari Kiss from the Safari collection. Next I apply random blob of a gold polish (Milani Gold Lame), cherry red (Orly Smolder), orange (China Glaze Cross Iron 360) and also the cream colour polish (China Glaze Kalahari Kiss). Next you just swirl the wet colours into each other using the tip of a dotting tool to create your swirls.




Stay tuned for Day 22: Inspired by a Song 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 Coloring!
XOXO

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.
