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)


Join in on this fall nail challenge by posting your nail designs on instagram or on your blog using the hashtag #BusyGirlNails and tagging the girls hosting this challenge: @drinkcitra, @BeautyByArielle, @fiercemakeupandnails, @mirandasmakeup and @marijonails :)

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.

Welcome back everyone! Today I'm sharing my replication of the Wilton method to making Royal Icing and some simple decorations you can make with the Wilton tip 21. This is an open star tip and can be paired with a simple leaf tip like a Wilton 352 to make small drop flowers.
