Fancy Friday #147 – Easter Nails

Happy Friday. Easter is only a couple of days away, so Easter is our theme for today. I didn’t really know what to do, but after googling around a bit I found this manicure by SoNailicious and completely stole it, because it was so cute and simply.

I started out with three coats of each of the polishes I used. On my index I have Barry M Rose Hip, the middle is Essie Lilacism (the purple version). The ring finger is Barry M Sugar Apple and the pinky is Barry M Sky Blue. I topped that with a coat of Ninja Polish He Went To Jarred. I dapped some more flakes on, on the sparser areas. I topped that off with a coat of Poshe top coat to dry the manicure fast and even out the surface.

On my thumb I have three coats of Barry M Peach Melba, as well as a coat of Ninja Polish He Went To Jarred.

I topped the manicure with OPI Matte Top Coat, after everything was dry. The matte top coat allowed the white gold flakes to stand out more, as well as make the pastel colors a bit more muted. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet påske. Jeg blev inspireret af en påske æg manicure fra SoNailicious. Jeg elsker pastel farverne og de sølvfarvede flakes. Husk at klikke forbi de andre damer for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #133 – Friday the 13th

Happy friday. Hopefully nothing bad have happened to you during this friday. I don’t really believe in superstitions like black cats and walking under a ladder. Todays nail are is super simple, since I had a hard time being inspired by the theme. The next themes I’m more inspired by so I will up my game again.

I started with three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme. On my middle and pinky finger I dabbed a bit of China Glaze Luxe and Lush, to represent a broken mirror. On my ring finger I used black and red acrylic paints to paint friday in red and 13 in black. I wanted it to look like the calendar app on the iPhone.

I liked the broken glass effect the flake polish gave. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for the this week.

I dag er det fredag d. 13, hvilket også er temaet. Jeg tror ikke rigtig på overtro, så jeg havde lidt svært ved at finde ud af hvad jeg skulle lave. Det blev til et ødelagt spejl og en negl inspireret af kalender appen på en iPhone. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #66 – Duo

Today we are doing duo’s. As soon as I saw the theme I knew what I wanted to do. I had 3 shades of Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy duo polishes, I bought back in 2012 while on vacation in Florida that I hadn’t used yet.

The creme polishes are extremely pigmented and covered almost with one coat. I could have left them like that, but out of habit I did two coats. I had a little bit of staining from the blue polish on my hands, but a little cuticle remover took care of that. I then painted a little of the flakes from the other end of the polish at the base of my nail. On my index and pinky I’m wearing Galactic, a dark blue creme and blue and purple flakes. On my middle I have Orbit on, a dark purple creme with purple and indigo flakes and finally on my ring I’m wearing Moondust, a black creme with green and yellow flakes.

To mix things up a bit I applied OPI Matte Topcoat over the nails, to see how the flakes looked matte. The flakes pop more when the they are matte, and it’s easier to see the color shift. Even though the look is a little bit dark for summer, I enjoy a darker color on my nails before diving into the last month of official summer and bright colors. The iridescent flakes brightened the look up and it would be a really cool look for fall. Click on the blue blob as usual to see what the others thought about when thinking about duo.

Lige så snart jeg så at temaet var duo vidste jeg at jeg skulle finde mine Revlon Moon Candy duo lakker frem. Det blev ret fint, og det er ganske simpelt og hurtigt at lave. Klik på den blå blob som sædvanligt for at se hvad de andre har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #32 – Green Fingers

Today the theme was a color, green. I like green. I found out I have 63 green polishes. Today I have 4 of them for you. I did a simple manicure, with some glitter, flakes and creme finishes.

On my index I started out with two coats of Gosh Forest Floor, a dark green creme. It covered really well and I could have gotten away with one coat. I then did a glitter gradient at the base of the nail with Nubar Grass Green Glitter. On my middle finger I used three coats of China Glaze Running in Circles, a bright green glassfleck polish. On my ring finger and thumb I did three coats of Cult Nails Coveted, a dark green jelly shimmer with flakes. On my pinky I did the same as on my index.

It’s more of a quite manicure compared to some of the previous weeks, but sometimes it’s nice to just polish your nails and let it be. I know I have missed just doing that, since I have mostly worn designs for Fancy Friday for a long time. If you want to see what the others came up with for today, just click on the blue blob.

I dag var temaet grønne fingre. Jeg har mange grønne lakker, så jeg valgte fire ud jeg ikke havde brugt før, og lavede et meget simpelt manicure. Farverne er julede, og passede perfekt til min grønne kjole jeg havde på til en julefrokost i går. For at se hvad de andre har fundet på, så klik på den blå blob.
