Soft & Pretty Watercolors with Candy Sweet Bows

This Busy Girl is having a blast on her vacation but always makes time for her nails. It's week 8 of the Busy Girl Nails summer nail challenge as well as the last design for this challenge. It was indeed super fun. Watercolor nails are really easy and indeed a perfect DIY nail art. Here's my version with added bows for a 3D look.



What you will need:
  1. Neutral base color: I'm using Sacha Cosmetics Barefoot in the Sand.
  2. Pink: China Glaze Beauty Within
  3. Blue: Cailyn Cosmetics #818
  4. Purple: NYX Golden Lavender
  5. Tools: Top coat, Acetone, Acrylic bows (optional)


Tutorial:
  1. Paint your nails two coats of the cream base color. Allow to dry fully.
  2. Apply a top coat over the base color to protect it from erosion by the acetone.
  3. Apply a few drops of the purple color on random spots on one nail. Using a brush, dip into the acetone to soak the bristles lightly with the acetone. Wipe off any excess and then tap the acetone onto the drops of color. This will cause the color to fade softly. Repeat on all other nails.
  4. Repeat step 3 with the pink and blue colors. Go over each nail bed with the acetone until the colors fading into each other softly.
  5. Seal with a top coat.

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…
