Nail Challenge Day 13: Cheer yourself

I've been called the Gradient Queen before :) I love doing gradients and have done quite a few using the regular method of polish and sponges but seeing a revamped version using stripper brush polishes puts a fun twist to my favorite manicure :)


Get the Look:
1. Start off with your base coat and a yellow green base colour. I'm using Def Defying by China Glaze. 
2. Using a dark green stripper brush polish, apply long brush strokes about three quarter way up the nail from the tip. I'm using Nail Fusion by Sacha Cosmetics in Vintage Green.
3.  Repeat using blue but keep the ends of the strips just a bit lower than the dark green ones. I'm using L.A.Colors pop art in Sapphire.
4. Complete the gradient using a black stripper polish. I'm using Nail Fusion by Sacha Cosmetics in Black.
5. Seal in your design with a top coat :) 


Stay tuned for more nail challenge inspired nail art and don't forget to check out my challenge buddies.

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…
