NYFW: Blue Bursts (Inspired by Carolina Herrera design)

Hola! I'm continuing on with my New York Fashion Week Inspired nail art designs and this one was inspired by a long flowing gown from Carolina Herrera. Just looking at this photo I could see the movement in the gown and could picture it dancing on the runway. I admired the bright blue bursts of colour that just popped on the white fabric.


Get the look:
1. Apply your base coat and two coats of an opaque white like China Glaze White on White.
2. Using a very fine tip of a dotting tool or toothpick, apply a row of dot coming straight down the center of each nail. This would represent the buttons on the dress. Use a bright blue colour such as L.A.Girl Blueberry Fizz
3. Next apply bigger dots of blue onto the nail bed in random areas. Before the dots dry take a toothpick and lightly stroke the colour outwards creating spikes around the circles.
4. Apply a top coat to seal in your design!


And that's it! Hope you enjoyed, stay tuned for more fashion week inspired designs.

XOXO

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.
