Fancy Friday #169 – Danish summer

Happy Friday. Today’s theme is Danish summer. This the weather have been very rainy, at least for the most part. I was lucky enough to spend two weeks in the US and 4 days in Malaga, so I got some sunshine and warmth.

I choose to do a grey waterfall manicure to represent the grey skies and rain we had, but I added a touch of gold, to represent the days of sunshine. I started with three coats of Illamsqua Raindrops. I then did a waterfall manicure using OPI Black Onyx, Picture Polish Winter, a England Encore Margot and China Glaze I’m Not Lion.

I dag er temaet dansk sommer, som har været lidt grå og regnfuld, ihvertfald det meste af den tid jeg har været hjemme. Der har dog været gode dage, som er repræsenteret af guld glimmeren i manicuren. Husk at klikke forbi de andre.

Fancy Friday #168 – Accent nail

Happy Friday. Today the theme is accent nail, and I choose to do a skittlette, with two accent nails, instead of one.

VDSC_0622

I started with three coats of Wet n Wild Pale in Comparison on my thumb, index, middle and pinky finger. For one of my accent nails I did three coats of Maybelline Pink Party Dress, a beautiful rose gold glitter. I topped my index and pinky nails with China Glaze Fairy Dust. On my thumb and middle I stamped using MoYou London Pro XL11 and a England Sleeping Palace.

I liked the manicure better without the stamping, I don’t know if it is the stamp itself or the color of the stamp, but it looked more clean without it.

I dag er temaet accent negl. Jeg lavede en skittlette med to accent negle i stedet for en, men jeg kunne bedre lide manicuren før jeg lavede stampingen.

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 #166 – Neon

Happy friday. I just came home from a little extra vacation in Malaga, Spain. I had a great summer and have two more weeks left before I start my internship. Today the theme is neon, and what is more fitting during the summer months. I love neons, and have been on a hunt for a dupe for the original Flip Flop Fantasy from China Glaze, and I think I have found a really close one, which I’m wearing today. I’m planning on doing a huge dupes post for Flip Flop Fantasy, because I have a lot of close polishes after a year of searching.

I have three coats of China Glaze Shocking Pink on my index and pinky nails. This looks really close to the original Flip Flop Fantasy. I have three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme on my thumb, middle and ring finger. I stamped with the MoYou London Pro XL 06 plate on my thumb and middle using MoYou London Black Knight. On my ring finger I stamped with the MoYou London Fashionista 04 plate.

I added a little bit of China Glaze Shocking Pink to some of the petals on the flower nails, to add a pop of color on those nails as well. If I do it again I will probably do a little bit of dry brushing on the nail before stamping. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet neon. Jeg har fundet en lak der er ret tæt på min yndlingsneon lak fra China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #162 – Fishtail Nail art

Happy Friday. It is almost time for my vacation, and I can’t wait to find some sunshine and heath after the miserable weather we have been having in Denmark for the past week. I actually chose the theme for today, which is fishtail or braided nail art. I used this tutorial from Lucy’s Stash

VDSC_0287

I started with two coats of Cult Nails Love at 1st Sight on my thumb, index, middle and ring finger nails. On my pinky I have two coats of Mesauda Aquamarine topped with one coat of Claire’s Glam. I used the Cult Nails polish, the Mesuada polish and Essie Nothing Else Metals for the braided nails.

VDSC_0302

I just alternated between the different colors until I reached the end of the nail. I took a little longer than I expected because I had to grasp the technique and the colors had to dry in between. Next time I will try to make the lines a little wider so I don’t need as many to complete the whole nail. I really like to pop of chrome in between the two creme colors.

I dag er temaet flettet nail art. Jeg brugte to creme lakker og en chrome lak, og det gav et rigtig fint spil mellem farverne. Næste gang jeg prøver det, vil jeg nok lave striperne lidt tykkere så jeg ikke skal lave så mange for at have en hel negl.

Fancy Friday #160 – Desert nail art

Happy friday. Today is the world day to combat desertification and drought, so we are doing desert nails. I decided to do some sand nail art, which I also did almost a year ago today. I used Chalkboard Nails’ tutorial for her beach nail art.

VDSC_0255

It is pretty simple to do. I started with three coats of Sally Hansen Malt. I mixed Malt with black and white to create the different colors for the sand. I dotted them on randomly with a small nail art brush.

VDSC_0265

I like the nail art even though it is really simple. If I had more time, I would have been more creative, but for now this will do just fine. I thought about combining the sand with a cactus, but ended up going the simple route.

I dag er temaet FN’s dag for bekæmpelse af ørken og tørke. Jeg har lavet sand nail art, for hvad er der ellers i en ørken.

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.

VDSC_0252

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.

VDSC_0250

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.
