Crumpet's Nail Challenge & Day 1: Black and White

Hello beautiful! I am embarking on my second nail challenge with my lovely blogger friends DrinkCitra and Cosmetic Proof and a newbie to the group Lost in Lacquer. I thoroughly enjoyed my first challenge which pushed me to improve on my nail designs and techniques. Starting from today and posting every 2 days, we will be painting our nails with the guidance of Crumpet's nail challenge.


So let's get this party started with my day one design; black and white. I decided to do a very simple design with these two colours incorporating them into a border like nail technique just using dots instead of lines. The effect is quite stunning in its simplicity.



I've always loved border nails but couldn't get the straight lines perfect so this is a really neat idea to get the same effect. For the black base I used an opaque black polish from Nabi, simply called Black and the white dots were added using China Glaze White on White and a nail dotting tool. Easy!

Stay tuned for more nail challenge inspired nail art and don't forget to check out my challenge buddies.

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.
