Californails #NailArtMar Day 11: Multi-Neon Brushstrokes

While the rest of the world is waiting for some sunshine and spring to happen, I'm all sunshine over here in the Caribbean. We wear bright colors all year round and I have a fondness for neon brights. Today's nail art challenge called for neons but instead of doing it for retina searing goodness I have toned it down with a black base.


Nail Tutorial:
1. Paint your nails two coats of L.A Girls Metal polish in Obsidian (black with shimmer). Allow to dry fully.
2. Using a fan brush and 4 neon colors of your choice (I used Claire's Neon minis), apply to the nail to form brushstrokes. 
3. Apply one color in one diagonal direction and then let the other color overall going in the other diagonal direction. 
4. Continue applying the colors over each other and repeat in case any color gets lost in the background.
5. Apply your favorite top coat.

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.
