Fancy Friday #171 – Fall

Happy Friday. Todays theme is fall. We had some really great weather in Denmark considering the time of the year. Sunny days and high temperatures. I really like it.

I applied three coats of Illamasqua Charisma, a perfect fall burgundy shimmer, on my thumb, index, middle and ring finger nails. On my middle and ring finger I stamped a leaf pattern using Barry M Gold Foil and the MoYou Tropical 14 plate.

On my pinky I have two coats of OPI Black Onyx and two coats of Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers. I really loved the gold leaf stamping on top of the burgundy color.

I dag er temaet efterår. Jeg elsker mørkerød og guld sammen når det er efterår, så det var helt oplagt.

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 #161 – Midsummer

Happy Friday. Yesterday we celebrated midsummer in Denmark. I have not been super inspired by the last couple of prompts, but hopefully a bit of vacation and time away will help.

I didn’t feel like doing some elaborate nail art, so I found a polish that reminded me of fire, China Glaze Cabin Fever. I put on three coats of this pretty duo chrome polish. It has a shift from red/pink to gold/green, and it dried brush stroke free and shiny.

I går fejrede vi Sankt Hans så det er temaet i dag. Jeg har været lidt uinspireret af de seneste temaer i Fælles Fredag, så det blev ikke til noget nail art i dag. Forhåbentlig hjælper lidt ferie på kreativiteten.

Fancy Friday #145 – Inspired by a cake

Happy Friday. I’m finally feeling better again after the flu. Todays theme is cakes, I have previously done cupcakes and another nail art inspired by cakes, which can be seen here and here. I went to google, to get inspired for todays nail art, and scrolled through a lot of cakes before finding this one on Weddbook.com.

I really liked the different textures and designs on this cake, and could instantly see this done as a skittlette. I also found some other cakes, that I have saved in my inspiration folder, if I run out of ideas in the future.

I started with three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme on my index and middle finger, before stamping with MoYou London Black Knight and MoYou London Holy Shapes 08 Plate. I turned the striped design on its side so the lines matched with the bottom tier of the cake. The didn’t stamp quite straight, even though I tried to stamp them on straight, and of course my index finger smudged a bit with the topcoat even though I waited a couple of minutes for it to dry.

VDSC_2138

On my middle finger nail I have two coats of Barry M Gold Foil, to represent the middle tier on the cake. On my pinky nail I painted two coats of Illamasqua Scorn, a beautiful matte/satin black polish. After that dried I dotted with Barry M Gold Foil and a medium large dotting tool. I left out the top coat on this nail to  have a contrast between the dots and the base, just like on the cake.

I did the same design on my thumb as my pinky. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet kager, så jeg måtte lige en tur på google, for at finde en kage jeg kunne blive inspireret af. Jeg er vild med kontrasten på kagen mellem det sorte og guld. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på i dag.

Fancy Friday #141 – Mardi Gras

Hello and happy Friday. We took a little break in the Fancy Friday group to renew our energy, but now we are back. In Denmark we have a tradition called Fastelavn  where kids dress up in costumes and go from door to door, like a Danish Halloween, but without the scary part. So since that falls on this sunday we decided for this to be our theme for this week.

VDSC_2031

The first thing I thought of was dressing up, which lead my brain to carnivals which in turn landed me on Mardi Gras. The colors of Mardi Gras is gold/yellow, green and purple, so I did a simple striping/fire works manicure with those three colors.

VDSC_2035

For the base I used three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme, and free-handed the lines using a striping brush and Barry M Gold Foil for the gold, Wet n Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer for the purple and Kiko 531 Pearly Green Butterfly for the green. This is super simple and super fast to do, and it can be varied with different colors and finishes.

A couple of years ago I was in New Orleans, although not for Mardi Gras, but we brought home some Mardi Gras beads, so they had to be included in a photo with these nails, since they match so well. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I anledning af Fastelavn på søndag, er det fredagens tema. Jeg kom straks til at tænke på Mardi Gras i New Orleans, hvor folk klæder sig ud og går i parader på gaden. Mardi Gras farverne er guld, grøn og lilla, så jeg lavede en simpel striping manicure med de tre farver. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #139 – Christmas manicure 2015

Merry Christmas. I hope you had a good Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I spent yesterday eating dinner with my aunt, uncle, cousins, grandmother, mom, dad and little sister before opening presents. Today we have just lounged around the home in sweatpants and christmas sweaters. Today is optional, but since I did a christmas manicure I thought I would show it to you. I actually included my manicure from last year as well, since I didn’t show you that last year. I also found my christmas manicure from 2012 that I hadn’t shown, so it is almost like a trip down memory lane 🙂

VDSC_0109

This was some of my very first nail art. The base is Essie Bobbing for Baubles. On my index and pinky I have one coat of Ninja Polish The Midas Touch. The christmas tree on my ring finger is done with tape and Sally Hansen Gilty Pleasure and the star is from Wet n Wild Hollywood Walk of Fame. The snowflake is also done in Sally Hansen Gilty Pleasure and with a small nail art brush.

VDSC_0433

I was inspired for this by The Nail Network. I used three coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff. The red dots are China Glaze Cranberry Splash, the green is Sally Hansen Jumpin’ Jade and the gold is OPI Golden Eye.

This year I went for a red skittlette. I was a little bit inspired by Lucy’s Stash and the way she used Zoya Posh. I started with three coats of Zoya Posh on my thumb, index, middle and pinky. On ring finger I did three coats of OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby. I used the same OPI polish and MoYou London Festive 03 plate to stamp snowflakes on my thumb and middle finger nails. Zoya Posh dries matte, but I top-coated it to bring out the glowing shimmer.

Thank you for this year. My next manicure will be my New Years Eve manicure that will be up the first day of the new year. Happy Holidays 🙂

Årest sidste manicure er min jule manicure. Jeg fandt to andre jule manicures i mit arkiv jeg ikke havde lagt op her, så de kommer også med her i dag. Tak for i år, jeg håber i får nogle gode juledage med familie og venner.

Fancy Friday #138 – Christmas baubles

Happy Friday. I had my last exam of the semester today, so now I’m on break until the end of January woohoo 🙂 The theme today is christmas decoration, and what is more christmas like than baubles? We are going to be decorating the three this weekend, which is one of my favorite things about christmas.

VDSC_1897

Today’s manicure is completely stolen from The Nail Network who did this manicure back in 2013. I started with three coats of a England Cathy, I could probably have stopped at two, but I felt like I could see my nail through the polish with two coats. I applied a topcoat on top since I would be using textured polish on top of that. The baubles are painted with different textured polishes and a small flat brush to get the right curve.

VDSC_1881

The bauble on the index is done with Barry M Countess, the middle is Kiko 457 Royal Blue, ringfinger is OPI Honey Ryder and the pinky is done with Kiko 458 Anthracite. The string and base is done with a small striper brush and OPI My Signature is “DC”

VDSC_1890

On my thumb I did the bauble in Kiko 454 Wine. I really like the difference in finish, and it was a super quick and simply manicure to done, so big thumbs up to Chelsea from The Nail Network for thinking of this. I’m sad she doesn’t really blog anymore, because her nail art was really good. Remember to click by to see what the other ladies have come up with.

God fredag. Nu er der ikke mange dage til jul, så i dag er temaet julepynt, og hvad er mere julet end julekugler. Vi skal pynte juletræet i weekenden, og jeg ved ikke noget bedre end at gå og pynte juletræet, så i dag har jeg malet julekugler på neglene inspireret af The Nail Network. Husk at kigge forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.
