China Glaze Textures

Move over crackles and make way for the new trend in nail polish this year! Textures. We have already seen textured nail art using flocking powders and caviar beads but China Glaze Textures polishes make this nail trend all in one bottle.

Of Course!


In this collection there are 6 gritty shades! Here's the promo ad from China Glaze Official. 


I got myself two of these gorgeous shades which are all bright and vibrant for springtime or in my part of the world, these are certainly beach colours. The gritty nature of these polishes is similar to fine beach sand. 

Bump & Grind

These polishes apply like a creme polish and as it dries the gritty texture of the polish emerges. As you use the polish it gets rather thick and you will be able to see some of the sandy particles. It reminds me of how the crackle polishes would get thick as you use them. If you are into matte nails, well you would love these since these polishes dry to a matte finish. If you want some shine go ahead and add a shiny top coat but that would smoothen out the texture quite a bit.

One coat Bump & Grind, Two coats Of Course!

How many coats? If you want a fine sand appearance stick to one, thick coat but go ahead and apply a second coat for more rough look that is still gently on the hands. I prefer one thick coat :)

I am expecting these polishes to last me at least a week since that's the time I usually can hold out for before changing them. I'll be sure to update you on their wear. 

So are you feeling this trend? Or would you rather the traditional textured nail art using rhinestones and studs? I'm happy eitherway :)

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.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…
