Nail Challenge Day 12: Tape Mani

Stripper tape anyone? I was lucky enough to stumble upon stripper tape at a recent nail trade show and decided to use this for what else but a tape manicure :) It is pretty easy to use just make sure you have a sharp scissors at hand to cut clean edges.


Get the Look:
1.Apply your base coat and then one thick coat of Kleancolor Catch Me, a creme turquoise polish. 
2. Allow this to dry fully! There should be no tackiness or the tape will stick to the polish and grab off the polish on its removal.
3. Using a sharp pair of scissors cut your stripper tape into about 1 inch lengths. You want the tape to be long enough to have pieces hanging off. This is what you will use to pull the tape off the nail.
4. Apply your tape into whatever pattern you desire. Keep a note on the order placement of your tape. You will remove the tape in the opposite order. 
5. Now with your tape in place. Apply a contrasting colour, I used Kleancolor Jewelry Red. 
6. Once you have fully painted over your tape and base colour, use a tweezers to immediately remove the stripper tape, in the reverse order you applied the tape onto the nail bed. 
7. Clean up any polish spill overs and seal in with your favorite top coat :)

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!

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.
