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!

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!

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.
