Creative Fantasy Dotticure

I have a strong love for purples! While the base colour China Glaze Creative Fantasy gave me application problems, there was no way I was wasting these 4 coats of this gorgeous rich purple crème colour.


To get the look, these were all the polishes used.


Tutorial:
Step 1: Start off with a base coat like Jordana Calcium Boost Basecoat. This is my current favourite which feels like a gel on your nails, give you well a calcium boost to strength weak nails and protects your nails from staining with the dark purple base colour.

Step 2: Apply 4 coats of China Glaze Creative Fantasy. This was the amount of coats I used to get the opacity and smoothen the base colour layer but go ahead and experiment with your own number of coats desired.


Step 3: Start off with a large dotting tool and a blue purple colour called China Glaze Bizarre Blurple. Apply large dots to the end of the nail tip.

Step 4: Use another purple colour but one lighter than your Blurple and apply some more large dots but just a little bit higher up the nail bed. I used China Glaze Spontanous.

Step 5:  Continue the gradient of dots now but add large and medium sized dots and a lighter polish. I used Sally Hansen Greige Gardens.

Step 6: Complete the gradient of dots with a small dotting tool and your lightest lilac colour. I used China Glaze Sweet Hook.

Step 7: Seal in your design with your favourite top coat.




Happy Purple Dotting!

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…

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.
