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 #148 – Nimbus nail art

Happy Good Friday. I hope you had a good week and is enjoying the Easter break. Today we are doing Nimbus or Halo nail art. The original artist behind this technique is Sammy from The Nailasaurus. You can see the last time I did Nimbus nail art right here. It was in the same color scheme as this time, but that was not on purpose.


I did three coats of Appeal4 Out of this World on my thumb and index nail. On the other nails I started out with two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme. On my pinky I topped that with one coat of Kiko 230 Sparkle Touch Rainbow Glitter. It is a little hard to see, but it is an iridescent glitter. For the Nimbus nails I used OPI Planks a Lot, Kiko 504 Pearly Glaze Pink, Different Dimension Aria, H&M Marsala Chai and Appeal4 Out of this World, and just layered them.


The last couple of days the sun have been shining, but of course it is raining the day I need to take photos, so the holographic polish on my index didn’t show up as well, so here is a flash photo to show the holographicness. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

Fancy Friday #126 – Inspired by a pet

Happy Friday. So my nails today are inspired by one of my two cats, Bernie. We got Bernie a little over a year ago from a shelter. He is so cute and I jokingly call him a Catipard because he looks like a mix between a cat, tiger and leopard. He has black spots and stripes, so that is what I put on my nails today.


Here is a picture of Bernie, so you can see his spots and stripes.


I started with three coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff as the base, I then sponged on a mix of Sally Hansen Malt and Appeal4 Rosebay Dust with saran wrap. Finally I stamped on leopard spots and tiger stripes from the MoYou London Pro 04 Plate using MoYou London Black Knight. I really liked that stamping polish, it was thick, opaque and black, without any weird smells. I have been looking for a new black stamping polish and I think I found it. I decided not to top coat the look for the photos, because I liked the semi matte look with a little bit of texture from the saran wrap.

I dag er vi inspireret af kæledyr. Jeg blev inspireret af pelsen på min ene kat, Bernie, der har en blanding af striber og pletter på siden. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på. 


Fancy Friday #117 – Inspired by a magazine

I was completely lost for ideas for this theme, so I just started looking through some magazines to see if there was any nail art in them. I found a multicolored dotticure and decided to recreate it with some different colors. I used the same colors as last week, just because I was wearing the two manicures at the same time and it didn’t seem to weird when they had the same colors.


I started with three coats of Essie Ballet Slippers, to even out the color on my nails and then I used two different sized dotting tools to create the dots. I used China Glaze Highlight of my Summer, China Glaze Plur-ple, Appeal4 Hopley’s Hope, Mesauda Aquamarine and Barry M Gold Foil.


I really liked how it turned out, and the pop of gold gave it a little extra sparkle. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they have done for today.

I dag var jeg helt tom for ideer, men kiggede et blad igennem og fandt en manicure bestående af prikker. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på i dag.


Fancy Friday #116 – Festival

So today we are inspired by festivals. I have never been to one, the whole idea does not attract me. If I was going I would definitely go to Coachella, just because the weather is great and the festival seems really clean and the music is more me. When I think of festivals I think tie die or gradients with tribal prints and metallic tattoos.


I was inspired by a manicure done by @badgirlnails on Instagram so I recreated that on my thumb, middle and ring finger nails. I started with two coats of China Glaze Highlight of My Summer and then did the gradient with the China Glaze, Mesauda Aquamarine, Appeal4 Hopley’s Hope and China Glaze Plur-ple. I then painted the Aztec print with a striper brush, a small detail brush and black acrylic paint.


For the nails with the metallic tattoo, I just cut out the tattoo, removed the clear film and applied it with the pattern face down on the nail. I then wet a cotton swab with water and pressed the water on the decal until it came off the white backing paper. I sealed everything in with a topcoat.


I really liked how the gradient turned out, the colors flowed smoothly into each other. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they came up with for today’s theme.

I dag er vi inspireret af festivals. Jeg har aldrig været på en festival og har hellere ikke lyst til det, det skulle da lige være Coachella der ser rigtig hyggelig og ren ud. Når jeg tænker festival tænker jeg gradient, Aztec/tribal print og metalliske tattoos så jeg overførte jeg til neglene. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har lavet til i dag. 


Fancy Friday #115 – Holo weather

Happy Friday. I’m currently traveling on vacation so I prepared the next three Fridays posts. The weather in southern Germany is not that great, but hopefully the weather in Italy is much better. This week we are doing Holo weather, which is sunshine. Luckily the sun was shining while I was wearing this manicure, so you can see the beautiful holographic effect.


I started with three coats of China Glaze Neon & On & On on my index and middle finger. I used three coats of Models Own Shades on my ring finger and three coats of China Glaze That’s Shore Bright on my pinky. I then watermarbled using OPI Black Onyx and Appeal4 Marsmallow Holo – Steffi’s Pick. I dropped two drops of the holographic for each black drop just to get more holographic effect.


On my thumb I did three coats of Models Own Shades as well. I think my thumb had the best pattern. I really liked the holographic effect against the black and neon. The only thing was that Neon & On & On chipped the very next day. I’ll try it out again to see if it does the same thing, because I really like the color.

I dag leger vi med holografiske lakker. Man kan ikke påstå at vejret er til holografiske lakker lige nu, men heldigvis lavede jeg disse i forvejen mens solen stadig skinnede, fordi jeg er på vej på ferie. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.


#WeekendOffNailArtChallenge – Day 28 Saran wrap

Today’s theme is saran wrap. I really like the effect saran wrap gives. I have previously done a post using saran wrap in three different ways. My favorite way is dipping the saran wrap in polish and then sponging it on the nail. That way you can layer your colors.


I started with two coats of Alpine Snow. After letting it dry at crumbled up a piece of saran wrap and sponged on Revlon Lemon Meringue. I then went in with Cult Nails Feelin’ Froggy, Cult Nails Nakizzle Shizzle, Appeal4 Lavender Daffodil and finally Appeal4 Queen’s Lace. I let each round of polish dry before going in with the next color. I varied where on the nail I sponged on each color so no two nails turned out the same. I then went back in with some of the colors depending on what I felt like the nail needed.


I then used MoYou London Pro 06XL and Mundo de Uñas Black to stamp with. I  think this nail art is one of my favorites I have done for this challenge. The saran wrap ended up looking almost like watercolor and the different colors blended well into each other. I may try it again with the same color scheme but stamping with a white polish instead, just to see how that turns out.
