Californails #NailArtMar Day 4: Vintage Purple Ombre

Purple is one of my favorite colors especially in nail polishes. Today's design takes inspiration from vintage flowers wrapped up in a lilac/ purple ombre background. Gradient nails are not to be confused for Ombre nails. Gradient is more of a design where one color transitions into another color or more while ombre is from light to dark. I guess in some ways you can have an integration of both.

Nail Tutorial:
1. Start off your ombre design using lilac and purple polishes: From light to dark; China Glaze Sweet Hook, Cailyn Cosmetics #834, NYX Cosmetics Golden Lavender, Wet N Wild Wild Card/ Invitation and Sinful Color Fig.
2. Allow to dry fully and add a top coat. Add a rhinestone to the top of each nail bed before the top coat dries.

The rest of the design was handpainted using purple (Apple Barrel Lavender), white, green (Apple Barrel Meadow green) acrylic paints with a Winstonia #00 paint brush and small dotting tool.

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…
