Busy Girl Nails Fall 2013 Challenge Week 4: Pumpkin Patch

How do you like your pumpkins? It's a favorite amongst my family and boyfriend so I recently started learning with my mom's help how to cook it. But today's "Pumpkin Patch" is certainly one I can cook up on the spot! 


Get the look:
1. Start off with two coats of a rich orange colour like Orly Flicker. This is from the Fall 2012 collection. Apply a fast drying top coat to lock in this colour.


2. Using KleanColor Mandarin Burst (a neon yellow orange color) either use the brush from the bottle or a small nail art brush to apply cut out of this polish on top of your orange base color. 
3. Repeat in other shapes using another orange color. I used a medium tone orange acrylic paint.
4. Using a black stripper brush polish outline the shapes where the colors meet.

NB: You can stop here if you like by adding a top coat; this will be a color block design.


5. To complete your patchwork, using the same black stripper brush polish, add small stitches to the first set of black lines created.
6. Seal in your design with a fast drying top coat like Seche Vite.

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.
