Californails January Nail Art Challenge 2014: Silver Valentine

It's the finale of this Californails January nail art challenge and I feel super accomplished that I was able to finish it all! One challenge done for this year already and it's still 11 more months to go! Silver is a color I don't use very often in my nail designs so this was indeed a challenge for me. I also had a string of bad luck with stamping lately so I decided to give it a go again. Combining silver, stamping, and something sweet I now present to you my Silver Valentine.


Nail Tutorial:
1. Start off with a base coat and two coats of Wet N Wild Black Creme. Allow to dry fully. Apply a fast drying top coat if needed to speed up the drying process.
2. Using my Winstonia Plate W102 and Milani PC Girl nail polish, stamp on the angel and the kissing couple on your middle two nails. 
3. Using silver acrylic paint go ahead and add heart shapes, either filled in or just the outlines. 
4. Add dot outlines to your hearts in some areas.
5. Finish off with your favorite top coat. Voila!


Stay tuned for more nail art challenges in 2014!

Coffee Date Night with Bae

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.
