Nail Challenge Day 26: Inspired by a Pattern

Is it too early for Christmas? Well I've already started with my latest nail art design inspired by the pattern of Christmas bows. I have a roll of this gorgeous ribbon just waiting to be used and the combination of the red and gold is simply stunning. The intricate details in the ribbon is soft and feminine but festive at the same time. In reality while this does remind me of Christmas, it also reminds me of those Indian Bridal sarees. 


The look was done using just two colours; shimmery red from China Glaze called Ruby Pumps and gold stripper from Jordana called Golden Artist. 




Stay tuned for Day 27: Inspired by Artwork 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 Patterns!
XOXO

  4. I actually thought it was a sari pattern before I read the description. It's pretty either way. I'm surprised at how opaque the gold polish is.

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.
