Mint Monochrome

Last week I had a girly evening of nail painting and cake baking with my sister. I did most of the nail painting and baking, but she was happy to provide her hands, and bowl licking skills!

Laura chose Rimmel - Peppermint as the main colour for her mani. Her next choice was the gorgeous L'Oreal top coat - Confetti, we love how well this goes with the mint. It looks like a tiny little duck egg! Finally, I added a second accent nail with a black and white pattern. 

I painted this pattern on with a small striper brush, starting from the middle and working outwards. I've tried this pattern with a few colours now and I really like it. It's simple and quick to do but a bit more exciting that standard stripes. You can mix and match the colours however you like. 

Here's the cake we (well, I) made, a classic Lemon Drizzle made from our mum's recipe, yum! It's a bit smaller than usual as we took out a couple of fairy cake sized portions out of the mix to reward ourselves for all the hard nail painting work. Let me know if you want the recipe.
