Peter Som Spring 2014 NYFW Inspired Nail Art: Orange Floral

I continue to be inspired from the colours, prints and textures of the original designs seen on the catwalks of NYFW Spring 2014 collections. Today's nail art draws from a floral print by Peter Som. I love the contrast of the print with a solid color. Orange is a trendy color as of late and my latest design takes on a richer hue which complements my darker skintone. 



Get the look:
1. Paint all your nails two coats of a rich, black nail polish like Nabi black. Leave out your accent nail.
2. Using white acrylic paint, do big white abstract flowers on the black base. 
3. Sheer out the white with water or mix a little of a soft orange acrylic paint into the white to make it offwhite. Dab this color around the edges of your big white flowers to soften the harsh edges and to give your flowers some dimension.
4. Add a small orange dot to the middle of your design and tinier dots around this center dot. (Note: the original piece uses more of a pink/ red colour but I choose orange)
5. Seal in with a fast drying top coat. I'm using my beloved Seche Vite.
6. Using three coats of Sally Hansen Moonlight Dance for your accent nail. Allow to dry fully and seal in with a top coat.


Did you notice my nails are now oval instead of square? I'm enjoying a change for the moment :)

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. 

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.
