China Glaze Sweet Hook - and sweets!

   Hello everyone!  I had a really busy weekend because I had my first Bridal/Wedding Shower to attend!  Well, not the first one I've ever been to, but the first one where I was the girl unwrapping the prezzies.  ;D  It was tons of fun, and I made chocolate fudge, deviled eggs, and... something that I threw together and don't know what to call! to take to the party.  You can see what I made after the jump!

   First though, China Glaze Sweet Hook.  This is what I had on my nails!  Sadly these swatches were done right after I peeled 18 hard boiled eggs, so my cuticles were not the happiest, but oh well.  The other thing is that I took these pics in sunlight, and the color got washed out.  The polish in more purple than this in person, and a little darker on the nail than in the bottle.

  This is two coats and all I can say is I love it!  A "bright" pastel lilac shade.  No, it isn't the most unique bird in my collection but the color is so soft and pretty with a glossy shine that I adore!  It was easy to work with and 2 coats was perfection for coverage.  =)

   So, my adventures in baking.  This is what I made:

   Like I said, I don't really know what that is.  But here is what I used:
3 tbs Butter
4 cups mini Peppermint Marshmallows (and then extra marshmallows on top)
5 1/2 cups Special K cereal
a little bit of Vanilla Extract
some mini semi-sweet chocolate baking chips
nonpareils sprinkles
blue decorator's writing icing

   It was throw together deal based on "well, I have these mint-flavor marshmallows, I'm sure they could be okay in a treat bar" and "I don't have Rice Krispies, but Special K is like giant Rice Krispies, right?"  I like to experiment with things like this.  They were colorful to say the least and most everyone tried one and said they were good.  The peppermint was very light.  I think they are perfectly edible, too.  I still don't know what I'd call them, though!  Would you have eaten one?

  1. Based on my own opinion, I think that your nail looks great with China Glaze sweet hooks nail polish. I know that you really have a hard time baking that great sweets. I think that it really looks great and delicious and I really want to have a taste of it.

  2. Thank you so much for the kind comment! =)

  3. Is Sweet Hook from the new electro pop collection? It is a lovely shade of purple and even though it's wash out I'm sure it's a great colour for spring.

    Oh that's an interesting concoction there, since I'm a sucker for sweets I would have given them a try, I hope you had a great bridal shower :)

  4. Yes! It is from Electropop. I was afraid it was going to be too close to CG Light As Air, but Light As Air is a slightly dusty lavender, this is a little brighter and has a hint of pink to it. I love pastels so it is great to have both!

    And thank-you! I had a wonderful time. =)
