I ♥ Nail Polish TAG

Tag you're it! Today's post is just for fun and let's you in on some of my nail polish favourites. Join in now :)

1. Favorite base coat?
Honestly I don't have a favorite but I do use Jordana Calcium Boost often since I like the gel like texture and blue tinted color. I've also been testing out Sinful Colors Basecoat and so far I love the texture and soft color it gives.

2. Favorite top coat?
Seche Vite! I've tried many others but always go back to this one. If you're a Trinidadian you can get this at Wonderful World or T&T Beauty Supply Ltd

3. Top 3 favorite nail polish brands?
China Glaze, Kleancolor and Orly. But honestly I have a ton more brands that I love, like Sacha Cosmetics, L.A Colors, OPI, Sally Hansen, just to name a few more :)

4. How often do you paint your nails?
At least once a week. I can do it every day if I had the time though. But as a nail blogger I can do up to 5 designs a day for my blog posts.

5. Favorite neutral nail polish? 
I love Sacha Cosmetics Barefoot in the Sand. It's a creamy sandy color that is not as harsh as pure white and so looks gorgeous with my darker complexion. 
Other honorable mentions include China Glaze Classic Caramel or Kalahari Kiss.

6. Pink or red nail polishes?
I would hate to choose! But if I must then I will go with the classic and timeless red nail polish which was a favorite of both my mom and grandmom. China Glaze Ruby Pumps and I have done endless designs together! It's my go to red. Another favorite red is Kleancolor Jewelry Red. 

7. Glitter or matte nail polish?
Glitter all the way! I'm loving the Gem Crush from Sally Hansen.

8. Your go-to nail polish at the moment?
I have been into nude colors lately and feel in love with CND Vinylux Impossible Plush, Zoya Avery and Essence Cafe Ole.

9. What's on your nails now? Color/ us :D
My nails are bare at the moment since I am allowing them some downtime while I conjure up some designs in my mind for the blog. Stay tuned for that!!!

10. If you had nail polish line how would you name it? 
Chiodi De Bellezza which would mean "Beauty nails" in Italian.

Hope you had fun! Feel free to share your nail polish favourites and nail polish tags with me :)

Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Hello Bakers! I've been quite the busy bee lately baking up a storm in my baking classes. Today's post is a simple pineapple upside down cake. Enjoy!

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…

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…
