Fancy Friday #75 – Party

Hello everybody, how are you doing? This Friday is all about partying. I’m actually going to a party tomorrow, but I won’t be wearing these nails.


I started with three coats of Essence – Where is the Party?, a purple/green duochrome. Then I sponged H&M – Roof Party, a hot pink and silver chunky glitter on my index and middle finger. On my ring finger and pinky I sponged Cult Nails – Walk of Shame, a gold and holographic glitter. I went for a little bit of a party theme with the polish colors, since “the walk of shame” is what sometimes happens after a party (although I never did that myself J I’m not completely over the moon for these nails, so this weekend I will be wearing Deborah Lippmann – Lost In Space, a navy almost texture glitter with holographic hexagons.

I dag er der party uartig hos fælles fredags damerne. Jeg er ikke ovenud glad for resultatet, ved ikke om det er glimmeren eller duochromen der ikke helt fungere, men det er ihvertfald fest, om så ikke andet igennem laknavnene. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvordan de andre damer har



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.


Fancy Friday #63 – Stamping

Hello and happy friday. Today we are stamping, a technique I am really starting to enjoy and love playing around with. This time I went for a tropical look.


I started out with three coats of Sally Hansen Wavelength on my thumb and ring finger and three coats of Models Own Tropical Sun. After that dried I stamped with Depend Stamping polish in black using two different plates. On my thumb and ring finger I stamped with BBF 11 and on the rest of my nails I stamped a Hawaii flower design from MoYou 10XL


The stamping turned out really crisp on the flowers, a little bit less on the butterflies, but they still look good. Click on the blue blob at the bottom to see what the other ladies have stamped.

I dag stamper vi. Jeg kan rigtig godt lide at stampe og når man først har fundet den stamper der fungere for en, så går det ret let. Mit blev tropisk med sommerfugle og Hawaii blomster. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre piger har fundet på til stamping.


Fancy Friday #21 – Dots

Today we are doing dots. I have never actually done a manicure with dots, as far as I can remember. I was inspired by Sarah from Chalkboard Nails, who does amazing nail art and has amazing nails. She did this dot manicure last fall and as soon as I saw it, I knew it was perfect.


First of all, this manicure was so hard to photograph. The dots did not want to show up like the look in real life. I started up with two coats of Cult Nails Vicious, a creme eggplant purple. It is very opaque and was super easy to apply.


Then I did larger dots in the center and small dots on each side. I used Cult Nails Charlatan. It is sort of douchrome glassfleck topcoat in pink, purple and blue. It is super sparkly and so pretty over darker colors like this purple. It looks blue in the center and purple on the edges. When you tilt your hands all the way back its pink.


In this picture you can see the pink sparkle. Dots are a super easy way to spice up a manicure or do super easy nail art. This will not be my last dotticure. To see what the others have come up with using dots, just click on the blue blob.

I dag var det prikker der var udfordringen. Jeg blev inspireret af Sarah fra Chalkboard Nails til denne manicure. Jeg brugte to Cult Nails lakker som base og til at lave prikkerne. For at se hvad de andre har fundet på ved at klikke på den blå klump i bunden.


First birthday

Today is the blogs first birthday. It’s been a year since I started and it have been a lot of fun. I have started to find out what I want to blog about something I didn’t know when I started. If off from school and don’t have any exams only to test so I’m already on vacation. I leave for USA in a month and I was a bit terrified about the volcano eruption on Iceland, because we are flying from there to Washington. This is a manicure from over a month ago. It’s Sally Hansen DVD and Barry M Instant Nail Effects in Black, which I bought in London. I really loved who shiny it was, I couldn’t stop looking at my fingers 🙂

I dag er bloggens første fødselsdag. Der er et år siden jeg startede og det har været sjovt. Jeg har fundet ud af hvad jeg gerne vil blogge om, noget jeg slet ikke vidste i starten. Jeg har fri fra skole og har kun to årsprøver i år, så jeg er allerede gået på ferie. Jeg rejser til USA om en måned og jeg var lidt bange da vulkanen brød ud på Island fordi vi flyver derfra til Washington. Denne her manicure er fra over en måned siden. Det er Sally Hansen DVD og Barry M Instant Nail Effects i sort som jeg købte i London.



I have 7 new nail polishes I haven’t tried on yet, and 4 others on my computer I haven’t shown you, so the in the new year there will be a lot of nail polishes 🙂 The one I have for you today is one a worn a long time ago. It’s called Sally Hansen Hi-Definition Nail Color in 15 DVD. It’s a duochrome glitter in purple and blue, it’s really pretty in real life, and would be much better on picture if I had taken them on a sunny day 😉

Jeg har 7 neglelak jeg endnu ikke har haft på, og 4 der ligger på min computer jeg endnu ikke har vist jer, so i det nye år, vil der være massere af neglelak 🙂 Den jeg har til jer i dag er en jeg havde på for lang tid siden. Den hedder Sally Hansen Hi-Definition Nail Color i 15 DVD. Det er en duochrome glitter in lilla og blå, den er rigtig flot og skinnende i virkeligheden, og ville se meget bedre ud hvis jeg havde taget billederne på en solskins dag 😉
