Fancy Friday #136 – Elfs

Happy friday and happy december. All of the Fancy Friday post in December will have a christmas theme. The first theme is elfs, and I immediately thought of the christmas movie Elf, so that became my inspiration for today.

I started out with two coats of China Glaze Take A Hike on my index and pinky, and two coats of Zoya Chita on my thumb and middle nails. On my ring finger I started with two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme, before doing the rest of the nail art with acrylic paint. I began with the yellow stockings, before finishing off the black elf shoes and the green jacket.

You only get one photo today, because the early nightfall is starting the bug me, so most of the photos came out a little blurry. I really hate the it starts getting dark so early, but soon it is changing again and getting lighter. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they came up with for today.

Fancy Friday #135 – Neon Galaxy

Happy Black Friday, if you participate in that. I did a little bit of shopping online, but most of the deals on the websites were 20% off, which to me is not Black Friday. The real deal is like 50 % or more off. The theme today is Neon Galaxy.

I went for a darker neon look, by using a black base instead of a white one. I started with two coats of a England Bridal Veil. I then sponged on a bit of OPI Alpine Snow, before going in with the neon colors. I used China Glaze Treble Maker, Plur-ple, Boho Blues and Glow With The Flow. I used white acrylic paint for the dotted stars.

I finished off with a coat of INM Northern Lights on all of the nails, even the plain black, which added a little bit more holographic sparkle to those. It is not a super neon galaxy, but I like the end result. I have to say that I do prefer the dark blue and purple galaxy nails more.

God fredag. I dag er temaet neon galakser. Jeg gjorde dem lidt mere mørke, da jeg synes de er pænest sådan. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på med ugens tema 🙂

Fancy Friday #133 – Friday the 13th

Happy friday. Hopefully nothing bad have happened to you during this friday. I don’t really believe in superstitions like black cats and walking under a ladder. Todays nail are is super simple, since I had a hard time being inspired by the theme. The next themes I’m more inspired by so I will up my game again.

VDSC_1749

I started with three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme. On my middle and pinky finger I dabbed a bit of China Glaze Luxe and Lush, to represent a broken mirror. On my ring finger I used black and red acrylic paints to paint friday in red and 13 in black. I wanted it to look like the calendar app on the iPhone.

I liked the broken glass effect the flake polish gave. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for the this week.

I dag er det fredag d. 13, hvilket også er temaet. Jeg tror ikke rigtig på overtro, så jeg havde lidt svært ved at finde ud af hvad jeg skulle lave. Det blev til et ødelagt spejl og en negl inspireret af kalender appen på en iPhone. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #127 – Inspired by porcelain

Happy friday. Today we are inspired by porcelain and china patterns. I have previously done the mega mussel pattern by Royal Copenhagen, and we didn’t have any other fancy china patterns at home, except some small flowers, which I wasn’t really in the mood for, so I went for the same pattern again, but instead of a plate, I found some salt and pepper shakers with the pattern in black.

VDSC_1608

I started out with two coats of Wet n Wild White French Creme, a new white polish I bought, because my OPI Alpine Snow was almost done, and getting a bit thick. I really like it so far. For the black pattern I used a thin striper brush and black acrylic paint.

VDSC_1621

I painted the different patterns from the shaker on to my nails. I think they turned out really great, and I like the contrast between the black and white. On my right hand, I used a stamp that reminded me a bit of the pattern and stamped it on, because I wasn’t in the mood to hand paint using my left hand.

VDSC_1614

My thumb didn’t turn out like I imagined in my head. I used a different smaller brush at first, but my striper provided thinner lines, so I switched to that, after that nail. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they have done for today.

I dag er vi inspireret af middagsstel. Jeg har valgt mega mussel fra Royal Copenhagen i det sorte mønster, for at det skulle være anderledes end mine sidste mega mussel negle. Husk at klik forbi de andre for at hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #123 – Purple Minion Madness

Happy Friday. Today we are doing minions on our nails. I love the minion movies. I saw the third movie on the day it premiered in Denmark with my friend, who also got my minion socks for my birthday. I have some of the Glam Polish Mayhem and Madness Collection and decided to use of the polishes as my inspiration.

VDSC_1496

To do something different I decided to do the purple minions instead of the yellow ones. I started out with three coats of Glam Polish Purple Minion Madness, a red-toned purple with black and white round micro glitter and large black and white diamond-shaped glitters.

VDSC_1489

The base of the minion is OPI Planks A Lot. The overalls are Catrice How I Matt Your Mother and the hair is OPI Lost My Bikini in Molokini. The silver is done with Barry M Silver Foil, the black is acrylic paint and the white is OPI Alpine Snow, since the white acrylic paint wasn’t showing up.

I think they are super cute, they don’t look as mean as the ones in the movie, but that is totally okay. If you haven’t seen the minion movies yet, you totally should, they are so funny. Remember to check out the other ladies minion nails.

I dag har vi lavet minion negle. Jeg elsker minion filmene, men lavede de lilla minion i stedet for, for at være lidt anderledes. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #122 – Dreams

I immediately thought of dream catchers when I saw todays theme, so I created a little skittlette in purple and mint.

VDSC_1445

I was inspired for my dream catcher nail by Will Paint Nails for Food. I started with three coats of Happy Hands Lady Goodman on my index and pinky nail. Happy Hands unfortunately closed down their shop last year, but her polishes was really pretty. I used three coats of Barry M Sugar Apple for my thumb, middle and ring finger nails. I then used a small brush and black acrylic paint for the dream catcher. The feathers are done with OPI Hello Hawaii Ya? and OPI Lost My Bikini in Molokini. The pearls are Different Dimension Quasar, Dance Legend Thermo 167 and Picture Polish Lagoon.

On my thumb and middle nail and found a stamping plate that had different feather and bird images on and choose a larger full nail feather stamp. I used the MoYou London Tropical Collection plate 16 and Depend Black stamping polish. I finished off with a coat of Poshe top coat. Unfortunately the sun had chosen to go away right when I needed to take the pictures so the holographic effect of some of the pearls and the glitter on the index and pinky is lost. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they have done for today.

I dag er vi inspireret af drømme og jeg tænkte med det samme på drømmefangere. Jeg lavede en sød lille skittlette der blev meget forårsagtig med den meget lyse lilla og den klare mint grønne lak. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #118 – Inspired by a summer memory

So I’m back from vacation. It was two great and very hot weeks. I would not call the current Danish weather summer. It’s cloudy, windy and rainy most of the time, so it feels more like a fall day than the end of July. Hopefully the summer returns next week. I was inspired by a picture I took of a sunset in Florida back in 2009.

Sunset_Florida2_0001

I just love the way the sunset colors blend together with the tiny hint of purple skies and the completely black palm trees in the front.

VDSC_1379

I started with two coats of China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, and then applied liquid latex around the nail to help with the clean up after the gradient. I did three coats of the gradient using OPI Live.Love.Carnaval closest to the cuticle, OPI Toucan Do It If You Try in the middle and the China Glaze at the tip.

VDSC_1381

After the base was dry I used a striping brush and black acrylic paint to paint the palm trees. I painted a stripe for the base, and four stripes for the base of the leaves. I then added tiny stripes to form the leaves. After the paint was dry I finished off with a coat of Poshe top coat. Remember to check out the other ladies by clicking on the blue frog.

I dag er vi inspireret af sommer og sol eller et sommer minde. Jeg valgte det sidste, men billedet er taget på en sommerferie og der er en sol på. En fin solnedgangs gradient med sorte palmer. Husk at klikke forbi for at se hvad de andre har lavet til i dag.
