Fancy Friday #122 – Dreams

I immediately thought of dream catchers when I saw todays theme, so I created a little skittlette in purple and mint.

I was inspired for my dream catcher nail by Will Paint Nails for Food. I started with three coats of Happy Hands Lady Goodman on my index and pinky nail. Happy Hands unfortunately closed down their shop last year, but her polishes was really pretty. I used three coats of Barry M Sugar Apple for my thumb, middle and ring finger nails. I then used a small brush and black acrylic paint for the dream catcher. The feathers are done with OPI Hello Hawaii Ya? and OPI Lost My Bikini in Molokini. The pearls are Different Dimension Quasar, Dance Legend Thermo 167 and Picture Polish Lagoon.

On my thumb and middle nail and found a stamping plate that had different feather and bird images on and choose a larger full nail feather stamp. I used the MoYou London Tropical Collection plate 16 and Depend Black stamping polish. I finished off with a coat of Poshe top coat. Unfortunately the sun had chosen to go away right when I needed to take the pictures so the holographic effect of some of the pearls and the glitter on the index and pinky is lost. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they have done for today.

I dag er vi inspireret af drømme og jeg tænkte med det samme på drømmefangere. Jeg lavede en sød lille skittlette der blev meget forårsagtig med den meget lyse lilla og den klare mint grønne lak. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #95 – Multicolored Stamping

Hello and happy friday. The weather in Denmark is grey and rainy, which affected the lightning in my pictures a little. I can’t wait for spring and summer, it makes it so much easier to take photos outside. Today we are doing multicolored stamping, something I never done before, but it is quite easy.

I started with four coats of Dance Legend Sadness. It was quite sheer since it’s a jelly, I could have stopped at three coats, but I felt that you could still see the nail line through the polish, but the fourth coat took care of that. I then stamped using MoYou London Fashionista 07 and a England Sleeping Palace (the darkest color) and Crown of Thistles (the lighter purple). In the next photo, you can really see the beautiful holographicness of these two polishes.

I used my new stamper from Creative Shop. It stamped really well, I still have to play a bit more with it to get used to it. The stamper is not as squishy as the marshmallow stamper I have been using for the past 1 1/2 years, but it does pick up the image well. I had a bit of trouble with the placement, how much pressure to apply when picking up the image and stamping it on the nail. I got my stamper from Hypnotic Polish, it’s not the cheapest stamper but I really like that it don’t pick up every piece of lint it even looks at, like the squishy ones and that it stays put in the holder. It’s on pre-sale in the shop right now, so just follow the link above to purchase it.

I dag er temaet multifarvet stamping. Jeg har for første gang prøvet min nye Creative Shop stamper. Jeg skal lige vænne mig til at den ikke er så blød som min anden stamper, men umiddelbart virker den rigtig godt. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre har lavet til i dag.

Fancy Friday #71 – Drybrush

I have tried the dry brush or distressed technique thought out by Sarah from Chalkboard Nails before, so I wanted to do something a bit different this time. I thought of a post I saw on Lucy’s Stash, where she used duo-chrome polishes on a black base.

I started out with two coats of OPI Black Onyx. I then pulled out Dance Legend Celia & Boggs and Models Own Golden Green, from their duo-chrome Beetle Juice collection. I then wiped the brush completely off, before brushing the colors on randomly on the nails.

This have to be one of the hardest manicures to take photos of. The colors constantly change depending on the angle, you look at them in. This photo is taken in the shade to better see the colors. It almost looks like those beetle wings that have so many colors on them.

Bonus shot, to show some of the color shift. The dry brush technique is a lot more subtle when doing it like this. I kind of want to try it with a white base instead or with holographic polishes. Click on the blue blob to see what the other ladies have come up with.

I dag kaster vi os ud i dry brush teknikken. Jeg har prøvet det to gange før, og valgte en lidt anden tilgang i dag, for at få et anderledes resultat. Duo-chrome lakkerne får det til at ligne bille vinger. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre har fundet på.
