BusyGirlNails Winter Nail Art Challenge Week 4: I'm So Blue

Blue, oh so lonesome without you! Is that a song? Probably is! I'm very Blue today but not in a sad way. This easy nail art design is very cheery and can brighten up your day! All you would need is a bright blue base color and contrasting blue accent colors for the stripes with a pop of glitter.


Did you notice that I've changed my nail shape back to ovals? I seem to have more fun with this shape. 

Nail Tutorial:
1. Paint your base coat and then two coats of Cailyn Cosmetics nail polish #818. Allow to dry fully.
2. Next using a small striper brush and contrasting colors of blue acrylic paint draw on slanted lines on your nail bed.
3. Use an assortment of thicknesses for the lines to add dimension. 
4. Add a pop of glitter to accent the design
5. Seal in with your favorite top coat :)


Stay tuned for the week 5 challenge: Valentine's Day!

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.
