Fancy Friday #149 – Fun and games

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.

Fancy Friday #129 – Double stamping

Today we are doing double stamping, I have previously done both double and triple stamping with the same and different patterns. I really like the effect, stamping the same pattern twice can give. I was inspired for this manicure by Love Varnish, who have a similar color scheme in her double stamping manicure.

VDSC_1663

I started out with two coats of OPI Hello Hawaii Ya? as the base. I looked at all of my stamping plates, and decided on the Bundle Monster XL17 plate. I used my MoYou London XL Marshmallow stamper and Depend White Stamping polish. After letting that dry, I stamped the same pattern at a different angle using a England Sleeping Palace. The base is a little dark for the a England polish to really stand out, but it still looks pretty.

The weirdest thing happened when I topcoated the manicure, the base polish turned lighter. This didn’t matter that much, but it was just weird. I have had it happen before, that a polish switches colors when it is topcoated. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they have done for today.

I dag er temaet dobbelt stamping, en teknik der giver et fint resultat, både med det samme mønster og to forskellige mønstre. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

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.

VDSC_1445

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 #112 – Paradise

To me paradise is tropical beaches like in Hawaii. I have never been, but I really want to go sometimes, because it looks like heaven. I pulled out my MoYou London Tropical plates and stamped with them.

VDSC_1278

On my index and middle finger I painted three coats of Models Own Beach Bag, a bright peachy-coral neon. I stamped with Mundo de Uñas Black and MoYou London Tropical 03. On my ring finger I painted three coats of OPI This Color’s Making Waves from the Hawaii Collection, a beautiful turquoise/blue/purple duo chrome with gold glitter. I stamped with Depend White Stamping polish and MoYou London Tropical 11. On my pinky I have two coats of China Glaze Water You Waiting For?

VDSC_1261

I also painted three coats of OPI This Color’s Making Waves on my thumb and stamped two palm trees from MoYou London Tropical 11. I could stare at that blue duo chrome all day. It is so shiny and beautiful. I didn’t plan on picking up any polishes from the Hawaii Collection but they went on sale and this just spoke to me. The Danish summer weather is not here yet. It’s not the warm and it has been raining every day for like a week, not cool. Remember to see what the others have come up with for paradise nails.

Fancy Friday #106 – Mother’s Day

Happy Friday. On sunday it is Mother’s Day, so we are celebrating that today. I didn’t have so many ideas for what to do for the theme, but my mom likes flowers so I put flowers on my nails.

VDSC_1085

I started with three coats of China Glaze Wanderlust on my thumb, middle and pinky nails and China Glaze Dashboard Dreamer on my index and ring finger. I really like these shimmer polishes. They are thin and require two thick coats or three thin coats, but I didn’t have any issues with streakiness. I used Depend White Stamping polish to stamp with.

VDSC_1093

I used MoYou London Pro 06XL on my index and ring finger and MoYou London Pro 10XL on my middle and pinky nail. I decided to do five different stamps, to create sort of a bouquet of flowers on the nails.

VDSC_1083

On my thumb I used MoYou London Tropical 03. The pastel colors are so bright and nice for spring and the copper shimmer in them is just awesome. I like the white stamping because it’s not super visible and in your face, but compliments the softer base polishes. Remember to check what the other ladies did for today.

I dag fejre vi Mors Dag lidt tidligt. Min mor elsker blomster, så der blev stampet lidt forskellige blomster på neglene over to af lakkerne fra China Glaze Road Trip collection. Husk at klikke forbi de andre damer for at se hvad de har lavet til i dag.

#WeekendOffNailArtChallenge – Day 24 / Fancy Friday #104 – Event

Today’s theme is inspired by an event. I actually have two events manicures that I did a while ago, that I haven’t shown on the blog yet.

VDSC_0574

The first event is for 4th of July. Last summer I spent 4th of July in Rapid City in South Dakota in the US. I saw Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse and then walked around the downtown. I even visited a Sally’s Beauty Supply where to employees had to look at my nails. The blue is China Glaze First Mate, the red OPI Coca Cola Red with a coat of Orly Star Spangled. The stamp on the index and pinky is from Bundle Monster H25 and stamped with Depend White stamping polish. The middle nails stamping is from a BBF plate.

VDSC_0579

On my right hand I used the same polishes and plate. The ring finger on both hands is done by freehand. The white is done with Barry M Nail Art Pen in white and the blue is the same China Glaze polish.

VDSC_0368

The second event is Thanksgiving. I have celebrated Thanksgiving in Denmark for I think 12 years with my family at the Marriott in Copenhagen. I love a holiday centered around food and being together. The index and middle nail is OPI Alpine Snow. The glitter on the index is China Glaze Electrify. I can’t remember the colors I used for the turkey but I was inspired by The Nail Network. The ring finger is the same colors and technique as the 4th of July nails.  The pinky is OPI Black Onyx and the waterfall technique with various golden polishes.

#WeekendOffNailArtChallenge – Day 22 Family

Today’s theme is inspired by family. I did these nails back on February 1st, when the Super Bowl was played. My family all loves american football and our favorite team is New England Patriots. We stayed up all night watching the very exciting game and we even had the American signal so we could watch all the American commercials.

VDSC_0616

I ordered a custom plate NFL in a group buy from FigTreeStamps. I used OPI Alpine Snow on my index and pinky finger. I then stamped using China Glaze First Mate on my index and a England Perceval for the pinky. On my middle nail I have Cult Nails Dazed and on my ring finger OPI Coca Cola Red. Both nails are stamped with Depend White stamping polish.

VDSC_0625

Luckily the Patriots won in the very last-minute. I have seen the Patriots play live three times and I so want go again. The atmosphere surrounding the game is amazing. Back in 2010 when I saw them in Boston I bought a foam hand which I’m holding here and in the next photo.
