Busy Girl Hitting The Beach

It's vacation time for me for the next 3 weeks and I always think of sun, sea and sand when it's my vacation. This year I will be heading away from that and instead crossing over the waters to Canada. So this fun, beach manicure will have to suffice this year while I go crazy shopping up the malls and taking in the beautiful landscape and sites in Toronto.

Beach Nails
To get these fun, beach nails here is what you will need:
  • Neutral: Off white or caramel color to represent the sand. I'm using China Glaze Classic Caramel
  • Light Blue: Color of the water. I'm using Sally Hansen Blizzard Blue
  • Dark Blue: Color of the water, to bring in more depth to the sea. I'm using Kleancolor Metallic Aqua
  • White: Foam of the water where the waves breaks on the shore. I'm using L.A Color Energy Source
  • Red: For the starfish. I'm using LA Colors Pop Art in Red.
  • Tools: Makeup sponge, painter's palette, top coat.

  1. Start off with your base coat and then two coats of your neutral sandy base color. Allow to dry.
  2. Using the white polish apply to a makeup sponge and dab onto the nail bed. This will look like the froth of the waves. Apply in various patterns on each nail for a unique look.
  3. Using the light blue dab onto the nail lower than the white.
  4. Repeat step 3 using a darker blue but again a little lower than the lighter blue.
  5. Using a red stripper make little starfishes on the sand. Add a few white dots for dimension.
  6. Clean up and apply a top coat to seal in your design.

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.
