Neon Border Nail Art

Bright, bold, and beautiful! This is how I feel about anything neon and today's nail art look really stunned me, my family, my friends with how bold and eye dazzling this design turned out. These small yet neon bright studs from BornPrettyStore were enough to light up the room...I mean black polish...under UV lighting.


This is a simple border look just using the nail studs for the border. In case you don't have these studs, feel free to use plain or colored rhinestones or even create a dot border using nail polish or acrylic paint just like these black and white nails

Mini Review: Wet N Wild Wild Shine nail color in Black Creme'
This is my new favorite black polish. Here I'm wearing two coats and it is totally opaque at this point but with a thicker coat this could pass for a one coater polish. It didn't take long to dry and applied smoothly to the nail bed with no pooling or streaks.


Neon Border Tutorial: 
  1. Start off with a base coat to protect your natural nails from staining of the black polish.
  2. Apply two coats of your Wet N Wild Black Creme. Allow to dry fully.
  3. Apply a coat of a regular drying top coat on one nail. 
  4. Using a wax pencil apply your nail studs in various neon colors starting from the top centre of the nail bed, right near the cuticle area. Continue applying studs by interchanging between not just colors but also the circle and square studs within your nail wheel. 
  5. To even out the design apply the same stud to opposite ends of the nail bed. 
  6. Tap down lightly when you have the studs in your design border shape. 
  7. Repeat this process for the rest of your nails, only applying the first regular top coat when you are ready to apply your studs in place.
  8. Use two coats of a fast drying top coat to seal in and secure the studs in place.


Mini Review: BornPrettyStore Neon Stud Wheel

These neon studs are a must have for the nail art lover. This 400 piece nail wheel comes with 6 vibrant colors each in both circle and square shapes. The studs are small at 2mm and perfect for those with small nails like myself. They apply quite easily using a wax pencil and has an awesome shine when covered with a topcoat. Some studs I've tried before tend to get frosty with a topcoat but not these.

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.
