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.

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 🙂

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Fancy Friday #159 – Holographic

Happy belated friday. Time escaped from me yesterday, even though I did these nails thursday night. The weather have been sunny so what better time than now to bust out the holographic polishes.

I did a water marble with a touch of holographic. I started with three coats of Essie Hubby for Dessert. I water marbled with that, Essie Bangle Jangle, OPI Sleigh Parking Only and Appeal4 Marsmallow Holo. I drew a petal design in it and dipped my nails.

The pattern turned out really nice, and the pop of holographic really comes out the play in the sun. It has been a while since I have water marbled, so it was nice to do it again, even though it takes a while and is a little messy.

Fancy Friday #158 – Graphic nail art

Happy friday. I had my first exam today, and came out with an A. I had not expected this great of a grade, since it was a really hard exam and I would be happy if I just passed the exam. Today we are doing graphic nail art.

VDSC_0236

I had another idea in mind, but because of the exam, I had to be something quick to do. I started out with two coats of Color Club Eternal Beauty, a purple holographic polish, that really shines in sunlight. I stamped with MoYou London White Knight and MoYou London Hipster 07 plate. The stamping was a little hard to transfer because of the thin lines.

I dag er temaet grafiske negle. Jeg valgte lidt stamping, da jeg ikke havde meget tid på grund af en eksamen i dag. Jeg elsker holografiske lakker, og i disse solskinsdage kommer de virkelig til sin ret.

Fancy Friday #157 – Summer

Happy friday. Summer is almost here, at least the temperatures are high and the sun is shining most of the time, I love it. I have been outside in the sun for as long as possible, to soak up as many sun rays as possible before they leave us again.

I did another dry brush manicure for the base of the nail art. It is so easy and fast and looks really good. I started with two coats of OPI Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around. Then I dry brushed using China Glaze Glow With the Flow, OPI Kiss Me I’m Brazilian and China Glaze Feel The Breeze. I then stamped a flamingo pattern on top using MoYou London Tropical 16 plate and MoYou London White Knight.

I have wanted to do flamingo nail art for the past couple of months but never had an occasion to do it, but I thought the pink color of the flamingo is very summery and flamingos also remind me of Florida, the Sunshine State.

I dag er temaet sommer. Jeg har haft flamingo negle på hjernen i et par måneder og tænkte nu måtte det være. Jeg elsker deres fine lyserøde farve og så minder de mig om Florida og solskin.
