Nail Challenge Day 15: Watercolor Wallpaper

Soft, pastel shades for Spring comes to mind with my latest nail challenge design and thoughts of watercolours.

Get the Look:
1. Apply a caramel colour base like China Glaze Classic Caramel.

2. Pour a drop of your colour into a painter's palette. Using an art brush, dip your brush into some acetone and then into your drop of nail polish. Lightly tap the colour onto the nail bed in random areas. 
3. Repeat this process using different colours to achieve a soft watercolour effect. Colours used in this design are: NYX Algae (seafoam green), China Glaze Hanging in the Balance (medium bright blue), Liquid Leather (black), Bend Over Backwards (red). 
4. If you want a more blended effect, simple use a clean brush dipped lightly into acetone and just dab over the parts you want to soften out.
5. Seal in your design with your favourite 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

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…
