Fancy Friday #168 – Accent nail

Happy Friday. Today the theme is accent nail, and I choose to do a skittlette, with two accent nails, instead of one.

I started with three coats of Wet n Wild Pale in Comparison on my thumb, index, middle and pinky finger. For one of my accent nails I did three coats of Maybelline Pink Party Dress, a beautiful rose gold glitter. I topped my index and pinky nails with China Glaze Fairy Dust. On my thumb and middle I stamped using MoYou London Pro XL11 and a England Sleeping Palace.

I liked the manicure better without the stamping, I don’t know if it is the stamp itself or the color of the stamp, but it looked more clean without it.

I dag er temaet accent negl. Jeg lavede en skittlette med to accent negle i stedet for en, men jeg kunne bedre lide manicuren før jeg lavede stampingen.

Fancy Friday #167 – Recreate your first nail art

Happy Friday. Today we are recreating our first nail art. I chose the nail art I did for the very first Fancy Friday many many Fridays ago. I updated it a little bit, and I think it turned out so good.

Here is the original manicure, and just click here, to be taken to the original blogpost.

I have two coats of China Glaze First Mate on my index and pinky, and two studs. I switched the sides I placed them on. On my middle I have three coats of Barry M Sky Blue, because I destashed the Essence polish I used. Instead of the rhinestones I did a little stamping using MoYou London Pro XL14 and MoYou London White Knight. On my ring finger I have three coats of Kiko 294 Indigo and some round blue iridescent glequins from BornPrettyStore.

I dag skal vi genskabe vores første nail art. Jeg har genskabt den første Fælles Fredag manicure jeg lavede, dog opdaterede jeg den lidt, med noget stamping i stedet for de rhinsten jeg havde på en af neglene.

Fancy Friday #166 – Neon

Happy friday. I just came home from a little extra vacation in Malaga, Spain. I had a great summer and have two more weeks left before I start my internship. Today the theme is neon, and what is more fitting during the summer months. I love neons, and have been on a hunt for a dupe for the original Flip Flop Fantasy from China Glaze, and I think I have found a really close one, which I’m wearing today. I’m planning on doing a huge dupes post for Flip Flop Fantasy, because I have a lot of close polishes after a year of searching.

I have three coats of China Glaze Shocking Pink on my index and pinky nails. This looks really close to the original Flip Flop Fantasy. I have three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme on my thumb, middle and ring finger. I stamped with the MoYou London Pro XL 06 plate on my thumb and middle using MoYou London Black Knight. On my ring finger I stamped with the MoYou London Fashionista 04 plate.

I added a little bit of China Glaze Shocking Pink to some of the petals on the flower nails, to add a pop of color on those nails as well. If I do it again I will probably do a little bit of dry brushing on the nail before stamping. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet neon. Jeg har fundet en lak der er ret tæt på min yndlingsneon lak fra China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #165 – Dirty Dancing

Happy Friday. I missed the last to Friday’s, but those will be up later today or tomorrow, since I did the nail art before leaving for vacation, but I was so busy seeing Boston and New York that I didn’t have time to write the blog posts. Today’s theme is Dirty Dancing, I was inspired by the dress Baby wears in the last scenes when dancing on stage, the light pink one.

VDSC_0949

This is a super old manicure, I had in my un-posted section, but I thought it fit perfectly with the theme for today. It is not as creative as it could have been, but I have spent the past two days traveling, unpacking and settling in back home🙂

VDSC_0947

This is Revlon Popular. I don’t think they make this polish anymore, at least it didn’t see it in any of the drugstores I was in for the past two weeks. It is a light milky pink base with a ton of larger silver hexagons and smaller silver glitters. I think this was three coats. Remember to check out the other ladies🙂

I dag er temaet Dirty Dancing. Jeg kom hjem fra ferie i onsdags, så jeg fandt denne i gemmerne af ting jeg ikke havde lagt online. Farven mindede mig om den kjole Baby har på til sidst i filmen, hvor de danser sammen på scenen. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #162 – Fishtail Nail art

Happy Friday. It is almost time for my vacation, and I can’t wait to find some sunshine and heath after the miserable weather we have been having in Denmark for the past week. I actually chose the theme for today, which is fishtail or braided nail art. I used this tutorial from Lucy’s Stash

VDSC_0287

I started with two coats of Cult Nails Love at 1st Sight on my thumb, index, middle and ring finger nails. On my pinky I have two coats of Mesauda Aquamarine topped with one coat of Claire’s Glam. I used the Cult Nails polish, the Mesuada polish and Essie Nothing Else Metals for the braided nails.

VDSC_0302

I just alternated between the different colors until I reached the end of the nail. I took a little longer than I expected because I had to grasp the technique and the colors had to dry in between. Next time I will try to make the lines a little wider so I don’t need as many to complete the whole nail. I really like to pop of chrome in between the two creme colors.

I dag er temaet flettet nail art. Jeg brugte to creme lakker og en chrome lak, og det gav et rigtig fint spil mellem farverne. Næste gang jeg prøver det, vil jeg nok lave striperne lidt tykkere så jeg ikke skal lave så mange for at have en hel negl.

Fancy Friday #161 – Midsummer

Happy Friday. Yesterday we celebrated midsummer in Denmark. I have not been super inspired by the last couple of prompts, but hopefully a bit of vacation and time away will help.

VDSC_0275

I didn’t feel like doing some elaborate nail art, so I found a polish that reminded me of fire, China Glaze Cabin Fever. I put on three coats of this pretty duo chrome polish. It has a shift from red/pink to gold/green, and it dried brush stroke free and shiny.

VDSC_0282

I går fejrede vi Sankt Hans så det er temaet i dag. Jeg har været lidt uinspireret af de seneste temaer i Fælles Fredag, så det blev ikke til noget nail art i dag. Forhåbentlig hjælper lidt ferie på kreativiteten.

Fancy Friday #160 – Desert nail art

Happy friday. Today is the world day to combat desertification and drought, so we are doing desert nails. I decided to do some sand nail art, which I also did almost a year ago today. I used Chalkboard Nails’ tutorial for her beach nail art.

VDSC_0255

It is pretty simple to do. I started with three coats of Sally Hansen Malt. I mixed Malt with black and white to create the different colors for the sand. I dotted them on randomly with a small nail art brush.

VDSC_0265

I like the nail art even though it is really simple. If I had more time, I would have been more creative, but for now this will do just fine. I thought about combining the sand with a cactus, but ended up going the simple route.

I dag er temaet FN’s dag for bekæmpelse af ørken og tørke. Jeg har lavet sand nail art, for hvad er der ellers i en ørken.
