Rainbow Dot Gradient Nails

Somewhere over the rainbow! Way up high! Oh how I love rainbows! Today's design combines rainbows with dots with gradients in nail art for a simple yet stunning look for the summer time or just about any time you want a rainbow to brighten up your day :)


To get the look:
1.   Start off with a pink French manicure color, you want a natural base color to ensure your rainbow colors pop. Here I'm using Jordana French manicure in Pink Lilac, two coats.


2. Now you would need between 4-5 colors per nail bed for the gradient. So arrange your polishes using the sequence of the rainbow ROYGBIV; i.e. red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.
3. Next you would need two sizes for your dots, a large and small nail dotting tools.
4. Start with your first color and the large dotting tool to apply a vertical line of dots straight down the nail bed.
5. Using the large dotting tool, apply the next color in your sequence.
6. Between your first two lines, now go back with your first color and use the small dotting tool to fill in the space between the two large dot lines.
7. Repeat the process of large, small, large, small dots to complete your color sequence of ROYGBIV.
8. Complete with a top coat to seal in some shine :)


Oh and you guess it! This design is also week 3: Polka Dots of the Busy Girl Nails Summer Challenge :)

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…

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.
