Fancy Friday #125 – Chocolate nails

I was completely lost when I saw today’s theme. I actually considered just putting on a brown polish and calling it a day, but after a little thought and a lot of googling, I remembered that I had some gold leaf foil that I hadn’t tried, so the nails are inspired by the gold wrapping paper on some chocolates.

I started with three coats of OPI How Great Is Your Dane? and while the third coat was still tacky I tore up some of the foil into smaller pieces and placed it on the nail using tweezers. I pressed the foil down with my fingers to secure it, and finished off with topcoat. On my pinky I have two coats of Nails Inc Sugar House Lane, just to add something different.

I really liked how it turned out, and while I normally do not wear brown polishes I like the gold/brown combo. Remember to click on the link to see what the other ladies came up with.

I dag er temaet chokolade, og jeg vidste slet ikke hvad jeg ville lave, men jeg havde noget bladguld liggende som mindede mig om papiret på fyldte chokolader. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har lavet.

Fancy Friday #41 – Match your eyes

Today we are matching our polish to our eyes. I have really dark brown eyes, so I choose a dark brown polish.

This is the new version of My Private Jet from OPI. I know a lot of people call this yuck brown, but I really like the gold flash with the scattered holographic glitter. The brown is border lining on black in low lighting, and it was sometimes hard for me to see if it was brown or black while I was inside today. There are several different versions of My Private Jet. The original is a linear holo, while the others a scattered with different flashes of color, I know one has a blue flash. These are very hard to find, but I’m actually very happy with this dark color.

If you want to see what the others are doing for their eye color, just click on the blue blob below.

I dag matcher vi neglelak til vores øjenfarve. Jeg har mørkebrune øjne, så jeg valgte min mørkeste brune lak, OPI My Private Jet. Hvis du vil se hvad de andre har fundet på, skal du bare klikke på den blå blob i bunden 🙂

Fancy Friday #23 – Fall Nail art

The fall is in full swing in Denmark and have been for almost a month. It’s getting colder and the leaves are turning and it’s getting windy. I got myself a cold last week, but I’m almost over it, which is pretty good since I’m going away to a conference for the weekend.

Today the nail art is inspired by the Fall season. Fall to me is a lot of things. It’s the pretty colors on the trees, eating soup and carving pumpkins. For this nail art I painted leaves and did leather nails. Leather is a part of my Fall too since the temperatures are dropping I can bust out my leather jackets. I started with three coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff for the leaf nails and two coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather.

I then painted different leaves with Finger Paints Micheltangelo, Cult Nails Feel Me Up and OPI My Private Jet. I finished off the leaves with veins in OPI My Vampire is Buff. For the leather nails I added a coat of Barry M Black Magic crackle and did not topcoat it to keep the matte finish of the crackle.

I dag er temaet efterår og jeg valgte at lave blade og læder negle. Læder er noget jeg forbinder med efterår, og så er farverne på blade på træerne så flotte på dette tidspunkt. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre har fundet på til efterår.

Barry M – Dusky Mauve

Sofie says brown. So I thought “Have I worn any brown colors?”. I think this is the closes to brown I’m getting without swatching a new color. I bought this polish in London in March.

Dusky Mauve. It’s a brownish color, with purple and red shimmer. It’s supposed to be a dupe for Chanel Paradoxal, so it’s a cheap alternative. This is two coats and it was a little streaky a first coat but the second coat evened it all out. It’s available at Barrym.com who ships worldwide.

Sofie siger brun. Så jeg tænkte “Har jeg haft en brun på?”. Det her er nok det tætteste vi kommer på en brun uden at jeg skal tage billeder af en jeg ikke har haft på endnu. Jeg købte denne her i London i marts.

Dusky Mauve. Det er en brunlig farve med lilla og rød shimmer. Det skulle eftersigende være en kopi af Chanel Paradoxal, så det er et billigt alternativ. Det her er to lag, det første var lidt stribet, men det andet lag gjorde den ens. Den kan købes på Barrym.com som sender til hele verden.

H&M – Blue, Grey and Brown

Sorry for the blogging pause, but I started my senior year and wanted to get used to the long days and the homework. I also started on my driver’s license. Because I have a long backlog of manicure from before the summer vacation, I’m going to do the H&M polishes in groups. The cleanup skills are not that great either, so maybe someday, when I wear them again, I will update the photos.

Undskyld, at jeg har holdt en pause med at blogge, men jeg startede på mit sidste år i gymnasiet og ville gerne vænne mig til de lange dage og lektierne. Jeg er også begyndt at tage kørekort, så det tager også lidt tid. Fordi jeg har mange gamle billeder liggende af manicure fra før sommerferien, får i H&M neglelakkene i grupper. Cleanup jobbet er hellere ikke det bedste, så måske en dag, når jeg får tid vil jeg tage nogle nye billeder.

 First up is Blue from the Spring Nails. It’s a dark blue jelly, perhaps darker than I would think a spring polish should be, but it will be great for the next couple of months. I think this was 3 coats but I’m not sure. There was no trouble in application.

Først har vi Blue fra Spring Nails. Det er en mørke blå jelly, lidt mørkere end jeg synes en forårsneglelak skal være, men den ville være god i det næste måneder. Jeg tror det her er 3 lag, men jeg er ikke sikker. Der var ikke nogle problemer med applikationen.

Second is Grey also from Spring Nails. There is a secret shimmer, that is most visible in the bottle. It’s a grey color with some purple undertones, making is a bit warmer than most grey. I think this is a dupe to Grey Sky that was in H&M last summer I also bought. This was two coats.

Her er Grey også fra Spring Nails. Der er en skjult shimmer, man mest kan se i flasken. Der er en grå farve med lillae undertoner, som går den varmere end andre grå. Jeg er ret sikker på at det er den samme farve som Grey Sky der var i H&M sidste sommer, som jeg også købte. Dette var to lag.

Last is Brown, an orange brown jelly creme. This was opaque in only one coat and the application was flawless. This color is one of the it colors this fall, so I will be wearing it again. It reminds me of the fall leaves in the forest.

Sidst har vi Brown, en orange brun jelly creme. Den var dækkende ved kun et lag og applikationen var fantastisk. Denne her farve er stor dette efterår, så jeg vil gerne have den på igen. Den minder mig og bladenes farve i skoven.

Golden Chokolate

This is one of the Pieces nail polishes I bought home a while ago. It’s a really pretty golden brown and I would use it in the fall, to match the pretty colors on the trees. If you look at my index finger and little finger on picture 1 you can see it has some very fine multicolored glitter. There are red and green and when the sun catches it, it’s really pretty. It’s called Golden Chokolate.

Det her er en af Pieces neglelakkene jeg købte for et stykke tid siden. Det er en rigtig flot gylden brun og jeg vil bruge det som en efterårsfarve så den matcher de flotte farver på træerne. Hvis du ser på min pegefinger og lillefinger på billede 1 kan du se noget meget fint flerfarvet glimmer i farverne rød og grøn. Når solen fanger det er den utrolig flot. Den hedder Golden Chokolate.

Coco Milk

This dark brown nail polish is the perfect color for fall. It’s from Pieces and one of my christmas presents. It’s really shiny and reminds me of chocolate. It’s called Coco Milk.

Denne mørke brune neglelak er perfekt til efteråret. Den er fra Pieces og en af mine julegaver. Den skinner utrolig meget og minder mig om chokolade. Den hedder Coco Milk.
