Busy Girl Nails Fall 2013 Challenge: Week 1- Golden Streaks

Oh how I love a good nail challenge with good friends and new ones too! Today's design takes the theme for week 1 of the Busy Girl Nails fall 2013 nail art challenge: Antique Gold. 



Tutorial:
1. Start off with your base coat and then apply 3 coats of  L.A girl metal nail polish in Gold Plated. 


2. Using a variety of fall colours like orange (Orly Flicker),  oxblood red (Orly Smolder), plum (Orly Ingenue) and antique gold (L.A girl metal Antique Gold) add stripes of each of these colours to the center of the nail bed.
3. Allow the colors to overlap in some places and blend into each other at some points. 
4. Add a touch of glitter using folk art extreme glitter acrylic paint in gold. 
5. Seal in with a fast drying top coat (Seche Vite! My favorite)

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.
