Fashion Inspired: Blue Mesh Nail Art

Hello beautiful! Today's nail art design is inspired by a recent Maybelline design done for a recent fashion event. Instead of looking at their nail art I took my inspiration straight from the dress instead and gave it my own twist by changing up the colour scheme to work with my skintone.

My Nail Art inspiration came from Maybelline and this picture they posted on their facebook page. The original design was done backstage at Bibhu Mohapatra.

Now for my design!

Get the Look:
1. Apply your favourite base coat and then three coats of a sheer pink polish like China Glaze Hopeful.
2. Using a blue stripper brush (like LA Colours Art Deco in Sapphire) apply one line that curves in and out. You want the outside curves to be lined up with the centre of the nail.
3. Repeat step two but in the opposite direction so that the curves touch each other.
4. Continue adding more curves lines until you form your mesh pattern.
5. For a more mesh look, you can fill in a little of the spaces in between where your lines meet
6. Allow to dry fully and seal in your design with a top coat.


So how do you like my version? I was really thrilled with this blue and soft pink version. More fashion inspired nail art coming up!

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.

Wilton Royal Icing Recipe & Tip 21

Welcome back everyone! Today I'm sharing my replication of the Wilton method to making Royal Icing and some simple decorations you can make with the Wilton tip 21. This is an open star tip and can be paired with a simple leaf tip like a Wilton 352 to make small drop flowers.
