BusyGirlNails Winter Nail Art Challenge Week 3: Glitter Heart

I've literally been quite the Busy Girl this week and I can finally get my Glitter challenge done for week 3 of the BusyGirlNails winter challenge. What says "I love you" more than glitter, well to a nail lover anyway :) 



Nail  Art Tutorial:
1. Apply your base coat and then 3 coats of Nicole by OPI in Rainbow in the S-Kylie. Do this for all your nails except your accent nail.
2. For the accent nail, apply two coats of OPI Italian Love Affair and allow to dry fully. Apply a top coat to speed up the drying time. 
3. Using tape, cut out a heart shape to fit on your accent nail. Take off some of the stickiness so that the tape just barely adheres to the nail but without taking off the polish underneath when it is removed.
4. Place the tape in the middle of the accent nail and then fill in the heart cut out with your glitter polish. Move around the glitter so it fills in the shape. 
5. Remove the tape immediately to reveal your glitter heart shape underneath.
6. For some definition, use pink acrylic paint to highlight your heart. Seal in with your favorite top coat.



Stay tuned for the week 4 challenge: Blue!

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.
