First up - the nails. This was my NOTD a couple of days ago. I really liked this color combo. I have had a hard time finding a color combo where I liked the white shatter. So I was very nicely surprised by this. I want to wear this again in the near future. I used China Glaze - Moulin Rouge and then OPI - White Shatter. Then I added a skull sticker for fun.

Now for the food! These were desserts I made for the Fourth of July holiday.

Reese's Peanut Butter bottom cupcakes. Basically you put a resses peanut butter cup in the bottom of a foil cupcake liner before adding your cake batter and backing. Let me just tell you - heaven!!!!!!!!!! I used a devils food cake and homemade chocolate butter creme frosting.

Vanilla cupcakes with a light cream cheese butter creme frosting and red, white & blue decorations.

I made three kinds of brownies, but only took a picture of this one. The others were plain and caramel swirl. This one is a cheesecake swirl brownie topped with leftover chocolate butter creme frosting, chocolate sprinkles, vanilla crunch sprinkles and dark chocolate crumbles.

Uh mah Gah. I think I just found my husband's favorite dessert ever.
Did you use regular full sized PB cups or the little ones? I think I need to make these for him and not even tell him what's on the bottom until he tastes them.

This is one of the first swatches I have seen where the white shatter (or crackle or whatever) did not look horrible - some look really nasty like something gone bad in your frig bad). Funny too as I am not a fan of red & white usually, needs to be broken up by something like if I put on white jeans and a red top, needs anything but white shoes. Lovin' the little skull decal. I need to freshin up my decal stash or bit the bullet and get into Konad stamping which is what I really want to do!

I had to look right past the delicious food! I am soooo trying to loose weight and of late cannot pass up Bryers Ice Cream - good old French Vanilla. I can eat HUGE dishes of it - everything else but for blueberry pie I can leave alone.

The nails are adorable. I like the white crackle topcoat. It's my favorite. The cupcakes look like heaven.
