China Glaze Creative Fantasy

I have a love hate relationship with this colour from the Cirque Du Soleil collection. It's a stunning colour but the formula left much to be desire.


So what I love about this polish! Well the colour of course is so strikingly beautiful. It's a deep rich red based purple crème. Purple being one of my favourite colours so I'm slightly biased to any shades of it.

The downside is that it took me four coats to achieve this opacity compared to my regular two coats. The first coat was extremely streaky and the second and third coats looked like their was some low spots but the four managed to cover and even out any missing areas. Applying four coats of polish takes a lot of time and patience!

If it wasn't so beautiful, I simply wouldn't bear with this. Anywho, stay tuned for a simple nail art using this Creative Fantasy as my base colour.
   
Happy Creative Fantasies!

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

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.
