Spring Flower Garden (Stamped)

I'm really hooked on nail stamping since it's such a quick way to dress up a plain old polish. Today's design was the first one done using my Konad polishes and plates with a spring inspired design.


Products used:
1. Stamper: Konad Double ended stamper
2. Scraper: Pueen scraping card
3. Polishes: Konad red and green
4. Stamping plates: Konad plates # 6 (index finger), 8 (pinky), 25 (ring finger), 54 (middle finger)
5. Base color: NYX Golden Lavender
6. Top coat: Seche Vite.



Tips and tricks with stamping:
1. For beginners: Get yourself some of the konad polishes especially the white and black, they work amazingly. 
2. Allow the stamped image to dry properly or use a thicker layer of top coat to prevent smearing the image (like i did above :)
3. Try adding two colors side by side to one image on the plate and scrape so they do not mix so you get a multicolor design.
4. Do not use the metal scraper that usually comes with the Konad sets, they scrape the plates badly. Use an old bank card or the Pueen scraping card instead.

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…

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.
