Nail Challenge Day 11: Splatterific

How about a Splatterific design? Splattering paint is therapeutic and definitely fun for me despite the messy clean up.


Some clean up tips: 
1. Rub vaseline on the skin surrounding the nail bed, this makes any polish splattered there easier to remove.
2. Seal off the surrounding nail area with tape.
3. Do one nail at a time and clean up after each spill, wet polish is much easier to remove. 
4. Wear gloves on the hand you are not working on. This will be the hand to do the splattering and will get nail polish on it too :)

Get the Look:
1. Apply your base coat and two coats of L.A.Girl Metal polish in Obsidian. This is a black base with subtle silver sparkle.
2. Prep your work area, I used an old shoe box to contain any splatter. Gather your design polishes, an old toothbrush and a painter's palette.
3. Place some of your first colour into the painter's palette, dip your toothbrush into the colour so that it is covered with the paint but not dripping.
4.  Using your thumb finger, move along the bristles to allow the paint to splatter onto the nail bed.
5. Repeat with all your design colours. I'm using China Glaze Hanging in the Balance (blue), Def Defying (yellow green), Sunshine Pop (yellow), Beauty Within (pink). The Purple was created using the blue and pink. 


6. Seal in your final look with a shiny top coat.

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.
