Fancy Friday #171 – Fall

Happy Friday. Todays theme is fall. We had some really great weather in Denmark considering the time of the year. Sunny days and high temperatures. I really like it.


I applied three coats of Illamasqua Charisma, a perfect fall burgundy shimmer, on my thumb, index, middle and ring finger nails. On my middle and ring finger I stamped a leaf pattern using Barry M Gold Foil and the MoYou Tropical 14 plate.


On my pinky I have two coats of OPI Black Onyx and two coats of Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers. I really loved the gold leaf stamping on top of the burgundy color.

I dag er temaet efterår. Jeg elsker mørkerød og guld sammen når det er efterår, så det var helt oplagt. 



Fancy Friday #170 – Ocean

Happy Friday. Today the theme is the ocean, specifically the Mediterranean.


I found a manicure I hadn’t posted yet, that fit into this theme. I used two coats of Barry M Sky Blue and two coats of Revlon Whimsical. The color represent the ocean, while the blue and pink glitter can be the seashells. The white stamping is how the sunlight catches the reflection of the water. The stamping is from the Bundle Monster XL16 plate.

I dag er temaet middelhavet, og jeg fandt en gammel manicure jeg ikke havde postet der passede ind i temaet. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på i dag.


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 #147 – Easter Nails

Happy Friday. Easter is only a couple of days away, so Easter is our theme for today. I didn’t really know what to do, but after googling around a bit I found this manicure by SoNailicious and completely stole it, because it was so cute and simply.


I started out with three coats of each of the polishes I used. On my index I have Barry M Rose Hip, the middle is Essie Lilacism (the purple version). The ring finger is Barry M Sugar Apple and the pinky is Barry M Sky Blue. I topped that with a coat of Ninja Polish He Went To Jarred. I dapped some more flakes on, on the sparser areas. I topped that off with a coat of Poshe top coat to dry the manicure fast and even out the surface.


On my thumb I have three coats of Barry M Peach Melba, as well as a coat of Ninja Polish He Went To Jarred.


I topped the manicure with OPI Matte Top Coat, after everything was dry. The matte top coat allowed the white gold flakes to stand out more, as well as make the pastel colors a bit more muted. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet påske. Jeg blev inspireret af en påske æg manicure fra SoNailicious. Jeg elsker pastel farverne og de sølvfarvede flakes. Husk at klikke forbi de andre damer for at se hvad de har fundet på.


Fancy Friday #145 – Inspired by a cake

Happy Friday. I’m finally feeling better again after the flu. Todays theme is cakes, I have previously done cupcakes and another nail art inspired by cakes, which can be seen here and here. I went to google, to get inspired for todays nail art, and scrolled through a lot of cakes before finding this one on Weddbook.com.


I really liked the different textures and designs on this cake, and could instantly see this done as a skittlette. I also found some other cakes, that I have saved in my inspiration folder, if I run out of ideas in the future.


I started with three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme on my index and middle finger, before stamping with MoYou London Black Knight and MoYou London Holy Shapes 08 Plate. I turned the striped design on its side so the lines matched with the bottom tier of the cake. The didn’t stamp quite straight, even though I tried to stamp them on straight, and of course my index finger smudged a bit with the topcoat even though I waited a couple of minutes for it to dry.


On my middle finger nail I have two coats of Barry M Gold Foil, to represent the middle tier on the cake. On my pinky nail I painted two coats of Illamasqua Scorn, a beautiful matte/satin black polish. After that dried I dotted with Barry M Gold Foil and a medium large dotting tool. I left out the top coat on this nail to  have a contrast between the dots and the base, just like on the cake.


I did the same design on my thumb as my pinky. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet kager, så jeg måtte lige en tur på google, for at finde en kage jeg kunne blive inspireret af. Jeg er vild med kontrasten på kagen mellem det sorte og guld. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på i dag. 


Fancy Friday #143 – Marbling

Happy Friday from snowy Austria. I’m on my last day of our skiing vacation, I had such a great time here this past week, and I don’t wanna go home to my everyday life. I did these nails the day before I left, and after the first day of skiing with gloves on, the white nails had turned cream-colored, and after a couple of days the silver stamping and the silver glitter had a gold hue. I don’t know what happened, I have never had a nail polish turn a different color on me, after a couple of days of wear.


I went the easy route for this nail art, since I didn’t have a lot of time to complete it. I saw this technique on OhMyGoshPolish on YouTube and it was so simple. I painted two coats of H&M Mauve It on my thumb, index and pinky nail and three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme on my middle and ring finger. I stamped with Barry M Silver Foil and MoYou London Holy Shapes 08 plate on the thumb and index nails, and I painted two coats of Essie Silver Bullions on my pinky nail. For the marble dots on my middle and ring finger, I just swirled Mauve It and French White Creme together without blending it all the way, and then I just dipped my dotting tool in the colors and dotted it on my nails.


Opening and closing ski boots and carrying ski’s lead to three breaks on my nails, so they look a little wonky, because I refuse to file them all the way down. I have to think about next week, because that theme is Bollywood, and I’m not sure what to do. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet marmorering, jeg valgte den lidt lette løsning, med marmorerede prikker. Disse negle havde det ikke så godt efter et par dage på ski, hvor de to hvide negle var blevet cremefarvede og sølvstampingen og glimmeren var blevet guld. Husk at kigge forbi de andre damer for at se hvad de har fundet på.


Fancy Friday #141 – Mardi Gras

Hello and happy Friday. We took a little break in the Fancy Friday group to renew our energy, but now we are back. In Denmark we have a tradition called Fastelavn  where kids dress up in costumes and go from door to door, like a Danish Halloween, but without the scary part. So since that falls on this sunday we decided for this to be our theme for this week.


The first thing I thought of was dressing up, which lead my brain to carnivals which in turn landed me on Mardi Gras. The colors of Mardi Gras is gold/yellow, green and purple, so I did a simple striping/fire works manicure with those three colors.


For the base I used three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme, and free-handed the lines using a striping brush and Barry M Gold Foil for the gold, Wet n Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer for the purple and Kiko 531 Pearly Green Butterfly for the green. This is super simple and super fast to do, and it can be varied with different colors and finishes.


A couple of years ago I was in New Orleans, although not for Mardi Gras, but we brought home some Mardi Gras beads, so they had to be included in a photo with these nails, since they match so well. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I anledning af Fastelavn på søndag, er det fredagens tema. Jeg kom straks til at tænke på Mardi Gras i New Orleans, hvor folk klæder sig ud og går i parader på gaden. Mardi Gras farverne er guld, grøn og lilla, så jeg lavede en simpel striping manicure med de tre farver. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.
