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.
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.
So I had no clue about todays theme, so I didn’t have a chance to do something new for this week. It’s April Fool’s day, so that inspired me a bit as well as the fun part of the challenge. I found some old manicures I hadn’t shown yet, so that will have to do for today.
The first manicure is done with Picture Polish Fool’s Gold and Zoya Vega. I stamped on top with Depend White Stamping Polish and Bundle Monster XL24. The name Fool’s Gold reminded me of April Fool’s.
This is a really old manicure, back from 2012. This was the manicure I wore for my birthday that year. What is more fun than a birthday? I used Sally Hansen Be-Jeweled and Color Club Eternal Beauty.
The last manicure, is my 4th of July manicure from last year. I love celebrating 4th of July, the food, fireworks and spending time with my family. This year I’m flying into Boston on the 4th, so hopefully we will get to see some fireworks. I used China Glaze First Mate on my index and stamped white stars from Bundle Monster XL23, the middle is Orly Star Spangled and the white stripes are also from the XL23 plate. On the ring finger I have the american flag hand painted. The pinky is OPI Alpine Snow and Dollish Polish It’s a Me Mario.
Remember to click by the other ladies, who have been more creative than me today.
I dag er temaet sjov og ballade. Jeg var helt tom for ideer, så jeg nåede ikke at lave noget til i dag. Jeg fandt derfor nogle gamle manicures som passede lidt ind i temaet. Husk at klikke forbi de andre damer, der har været mere kreative end mig i dag.

Happy Friday everyone. Since we are only two days away from Valentines Day, the theme for this Friday is love. I was in a bit of a hurry with this manicure, since I’m currently on my way on a skirt, so I repurposed or updated my existing manicure. I actually have another idea in mind for another pink/red manicure, so that will probably be up when I get home from vacation.
My original manicure had three coats of Color Club Hot-Hot-Hot Pants on my index and middle finger, so I added some nail vinyls from Twinkled T and painted a coat of China Glaze Strawberry Fields over it, to add a little love. On my ring finger I have three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme and I stamped using MoYou London Black Knight and MoYou London Fashionista plate 05. On my pinky I have three coats of a England Merlin to add a little glitter
On my thumb I have the same chevron pattern as on my ring finger. I really enjoy these skittlette manicures, not only because I get to wear multiple polishes and textures, but it makes the manicure more interesting to look at, than if it was just one color or one nail art technique. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they have done for today.
I dag er temaet til Fælles Fredag kærlighed og da jeg er på vej på skiferie, opdaterede jeg min eksisterende manicure med lidt hjerter og nail vinyls. Husk at klikke forbi de andre tøser for at se hvad de har fundet på til i dag.

Hello and happy Friday. I’m on the very last days of my project work, we are handing in Monday at noon. Today we are inspired by fashion. We used the same theme back in October, click here to see what I did back then. Today I was inspired by my own closet, more specifically a blazer from H&M New Icons.
It has on off white base, with blue/purple streaks and black streaks. The lapel is in dark blue faux leather and it also has piping details in the same blue faux leather.
I started out with three coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff. After that dried I used the distressed nail art effect by Sarah from Chalkboard Nails. I started with Color Club Total Mystery, a blue/purple shimmer using the distressed technique. After that dried a little bit, I did the same with Nails Inc Serena, a black creme. I finished off with a coat of HK Girl top coat. On my ring finger I used two coats of Catrice How I Matt Your Mother, a dark purple, with a matte leather finish, to match the leather lapel.
The nails turned out exactly like I imagined in my head, and they match the blazer perfectly. Click on the blue blob in the bottom, to see what fashion the other ladies was inspired by.
I dag er temaet mode. Vi havde samme tema tilbage i Oktober sidste år. Du kan klikke her for at se hvad jeg fandt på den gang. I dag blev jeg inspireret af en blazer fra H&M. Mine negle blev helt som jeg havde forestillet mig, og passer perfekt til blazeren. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvordan de andre har brugt mode i deres negle.

Happy New Year. Here is my very belated christmas manicure of 2013, on the very last day of this year. Have a safe and happy new years eve, and I will see you on the other side 🙂
I used three coats of China Glaze Champagne Kisses on my index, and stamped little reindeer from MoYou London with Color Club Cop An Attitude. On my middle finger I did three coats of China Glaze This Is Tree-mendous and stamped christmas trees on top with a-England Saint George. On my ring finger I used three coats of Essie Beyond Cosy and stamped with Saint George, Essie Penny Talk and Essence Red-y To Go. Unfortunately the stamp did not show up well at all. On my pinky I did two coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff and 1 1/2 coat of Different Dimension Don’t Be The Santa of Everything.
On my thumb I did two coats of Essence Red-y To Go and topped it with Foxy Paws Love That Jumper, which contains little snowmen, so cute. They actually lay pretty flat, so I didn’t feel the need to pick at them. The reindeer didn’t show up that well either, next time I will do colors that are a bit farther apart, when doing a glitter base.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I was a bit more busy than I thought with plans on the 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th, so I didn’t get to show you my Christmas manicure, but I think I will have time tomorrow to check in. Did you get any good gifts?
Today the theme is New Years. My plan didn’t turn quite out like I planned, since the colors didn’t show up as well on the dark base. I started with two coats of Color Club Revvolution, a dark grey/black holo. I then stamped with my MoYou London Festive plate 5.
On my index I used Color Club Eternal Beauty and the hanging tinsel/confetti stamp. On my middle finger I used the fire works stamp, but I didn’t transfer completely because I was not fast enough. On my ring finger I used another more abstract fireworks design and the same with my pinky. I will do something else on actual new years, and hopefully I will not be doing this last-minute, so I will have time to check in. Maybe some sort of glitter gradient that matches the skirt I’m going to wear.
I dag er temaet Nytår, men min ide blev ikke lige helt som jeg havde forestillet mig, da mit stamp ikke kan ses helt så godt på den mørke baggrund. Jeg håber jeg har tid, til at vise jer mine faktiske nytårsnegle, selvom jeg ikke helt ved hvad jeg skal lave endnu.
Today we are going on a trip into outer space. I have had a super busy week, so these nail was not made until yesterday afternoon. At that point I had worn last weeks fancy friday nails for a week. They were quite chipped and had lost a couple of rhinestones.
I started with a coat of Nails Inc Serena, a black creme. When that was touch dry I sponged on OPI Russian Navy. It’s didn’t really show up on the nails but added some shimmer. I then sponged on Orly Sweet Peacock, a medium foil blue. Then I sponged on Color Club Alias, a purple shimmer with some gold, green and pink duochrome-ness. After that I went in with Cult Nails Bad D.N but that did not show up on the black base, so I grabbed China Glaze When Stars Collide from their Holographic collection and sponged that on.
After that I pulled out a little bit of Gosh Holographic Hero, to create some grey areas. Finally I used a small nail art brush and China Glaze White on White to create the small stars by dotting and painting the larger stars on. After letting it dry so I didn’t smear anything I first did a coat of INM Northern Lights, a holographic glitter topcoat and finally a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast. I love the finished result. I was a little scared that it was not as easy as it seemed when others do it, but it totally is. Just keep layering colors in different areas of the nail. Check out the others galaxies but clicking on the blue blob.
I dag skal vi en tur til det ydre rum. Jeg har lavet galakse negle, ved hjælp af en svamp og en masse shimmer neglelakker. Jeg er vild med resultatet, det blev rigtig flot. Det kan jo varieres ud i det uendelige (univers 😉 ved at skifte farverne ud.
