Polish Days: Sentimental Pinks

I'm thrilled to be doing my first Polish Days challenge. You can find more information on this at Polly Polish. So this month's theme is called Sentimental, so your manicure must represent something well sentimental. Be it the polish itself or the design. I'm choosing to go with the design. What better way to celebrate October than with a breast cancer awareness manicure that brings me back to an aunt of mine who suffered and died from cancer. She was indeed loved by our family. 

These polishes are all from the China Glaze United in Purpose Breast Cancer Awareness 2012 collection. From left to right: Hopeful, Exquisite, and Beauty Within. I just used two coats of Hopeful as the base colour and then sponged on Exquisite up to 3/4 of the nail bed with Beauty Within concentration more to the tips.

Hope you enjoyed! See what they lovely ladies came up with for their Sentimental Polish Days!

  5. Beautiful manicure! I have a friend going through cancer now that started with breast cancer 7 years ago when she was only 23!! This is the third time she's fighting it so I think of her when I see a manicure like yours :)

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.
