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 :)

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. 

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…

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.
