Tie Dye Surprise Nails

Carnival is colour! It's heading closer to Carnival time here in Trinidad and Tobago so for me it's time to embrace its colour. While I am not a party goer, I appreciate the colours, costumes and creativity of our people at this time. These nails would be great to complement a colourful costume and are easy to do for yourself.


What you would need: Metallic nail transfer in any pattern of your choice, I'm using TieDye Surprise. Applicator, glue and top coat.  



First you would need to cut a length of your nail transfer into sizes to fit over your nail bed. This is the beauty of the nail transfer as oppose to precut strips. Here you can decide on the colours you want for each nail.
Next, apply the glue over each nail and allow to full dry. You should apply a base coat before applying the glue. The glue looks icy blue when wet and turns clear when fully dry.
Try to avoid touching the glue coat for maximum hold of your nail transfer. Simple press gently the cut strip over the nail bed and use the applicator to smoothen all over the nail to ensure all the pattern transfers to the nail bed. Lift off the plastic to reveal your lovely and easy manicure.
Here's my mom nails. She is my guinea pig for all my recent nail designs and adventures :)

 
And now my nails :D
Quick tip: If you miss a few spots, just do it again or apply a base colour underneath the glue so it appears like no spots are missing.
 
 

It's quick and easy. These nail transfers are available at Ambrosia Cosmetics and are found in other solid colours and patterns. Until my next colour manicure! See you soon!


Happy Tie Dye Surprises!

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.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…
