Californails January Nail Art Challenge 2014: Denim Jean OOTD inspired with tutorial

What are you wearing today? Give me a chance and I will wear jeans or denim everyday! But I usually reserve it for Casual Fridays and Slouchy Saturdays :) Today's nail art post gives you a design inspired by my newest pair of dark denim jeans with a bonus of my tutorial to achieve the look yourself. 


I haven't seen anyone achieve the look of jeans nail art this way but if you know of anyone please let me know. Otherwise I would be super excited to show you a new way of achieving a denim like look nail art design. Let's begin.


1. Apply your base coat and two coats of L.A Girl Color Addict in Idol. Add one coat of L.A Colors color craze in Cobalt for just a hint of sparkle but this is optional. (Top left hand picture)
2. Using a piece of cloth with ribs in the fabric, apply a small amount of your white nail polish (I used China Glaze White on White) onto the cloth. Some of the polish will soak into the cloth. Just apply enough to cover a section for your nails but not have the cloth soaking wet with polish. Some trial and error maybe needed here. Next gently roll the cloth over your nail bed so that the white pattern transfers onto the blue base. 
3. Repeat step 2 just in the opposite grain direction but with blue polish instead of white to break up the first white pattern and create a seemingly interwoven pattern just like in your fabric. 
4. Seal in your design with your favorite top coat.




Stay tuned for the 10th design in this challenge: Recreation

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.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…
