NYFW: Hand Laid Stones (Inspired by Libertine)

I've been really enjoying finding inspiration from the catwalk for my latest nail art designs. This one is very simple but the overall effect is quite stunning that I was left wondering how I didn't think of this one myself. If you are a DIY person then stick around to see how I did my version of this manicure seen during NYFW by Libertine.


Get the look:
1. Apply your base coat and two coats of a neutral polish such as China Glaze Kalahari Kiss or Classic Caramel. Allow to dry fully.
2. Using an assortment of sizes, shapes and colours for nail art gems, apply to the nail bed near the cuticle area and then down the side of the nail bed all the way to the tip. Use tiny amounts of clear polish to anchor your gems into position.
3. Seal and lock the gems in with a clear top coat.


Isn't this super simple? I used many colours for this design but you can also try sticking to a theme of colours or even one colour gems for yours. The possibilities are endless.



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.
