We are entering into the last four days of the challenge. Today’s theme is dragmarble. I’m not entirely happy about today’s outcome. I think my inspiration photo was much better and of course after doing the nails I had a ton of other ideas. Typical 🙂
I was inspired by a manicure by Simple Little Pleasures on YouTube. She did a fiery manicure inspired by Hunger Games. I first applied a thinner coat of OPI Alpine Snow and then did a thicker coat on nail at a time. I then dragged a toothpick with polish on through the wet polish with a light hand. I used OPI Jinx, Gosh Frosted Gold and Zoya Chyna.
I don’t know what it is with me and applying wet polish to wet polish, it looks so cool and simple when other people do it, but when I do it, it turns out so differently. I might try out some of my other ideas another time. My family all think my nails looked really cool, so it might just be me.

Today was not a good day, but luckily it’s friday and this challenge was fun. It took some time looking through all the other ladies previous manicures, and it was quite hard to narrow down which one I was recreating.
My choice fell on this skittelette manicures from Louise from Nails Always Polished. I have major nail envy, her nail beds are long and nice. Louise used my favorite polish Pacific Blue from Sally Hansen.
I used two coats of Pacific Blue on my thumb and index. On my middle I used two coats of OPI Black Onyx, after it dried a bit, I used a medium-sized dotting tool and OPI Alpine Snow to create the dots. On my pinky I used two coats of Gosh Frosted Silver.
Turns out Louise choose my favorites manicure, the splatter using Pacific Blue to recreate. What a coincidence 🙂 Take a look around the other blogs, by clicking on the blue blob, it’s really fun to see the recreations. We should totally do it again, because I know the other ladies also had trouble narrowing down their selections.
I dag genskaber vi en anden deltager fra Fælles Fredags manicure. Det var virkelig svært at vælge hvilken en det skulle være, men valgte faldt på Nails Always Polished (delvist fordi Louise brugte min yndlingsfarve). Louise har valgt at genskabe en af mine, hvilket er helt tilfældigt. Klik på den blå blob for at se de andres genskabelser.

I’m a huge cake fan. Well I’m actually a huge fan of anything sweet, except cake with fruit in it, although I don’t mind banana or certain berries. Give my something with chocolate and I’m happy. I also love baking and decorating, so today was right up my alley. I planned to do one stroke flowers, but half of the time they didn’t look good when I practiced, so instead I went to Carlos Bakery’s website, since I’m also a huge fan of Cake Boss.
I looked through the gallery, and came across this cake with leopard spots, glitter and bows, and thought it was just perfect and would look super cute as nail art. Also it has been over a year since I have done a leopard print on my nails.
I started out with two coats of Essie Mint Candy Apple, for the base of the cake. Then I did the spots in Kiko Light Misty Green with a dotting tool, and outlined the spots with OPI Black Onyx using a small nail art brush. For the glitter accent I used three coats of Gosh Frosted Silver, and did the bow again using Black Onyx and the small brush. I finished off all the nails with a coat of Poshe topcoat.
This mani is so cute, and really reminded me that I should do leopard spots more often, because they are so easy, but look really cool. This challenge, really made me want to bake a batch of fudge brownies, so I think that is going to happen tomorrow. I know there are some of the girls who did cupcakes this week, so click on the blue blob to see that.
I dag er det international kage dekorations dag, og det fejre vi også i Fælles Fredag. Jeg elsker at bage og spise kage, så jeg kiggede forbi Carlos Bakery’s hjemmeside og fandt en rigtig flot kage med leopard prikker, glimmer og sløjfer.

Hi everybody. Last year when we had a texture challenge I played with striping tape, creme colors and texture polishes. This year, I used tape again but in a different way.
I started out with a coat of Duri Rejuvacote and after letting it dry, I placed a half-moon sticker from Nail Vinyls at the cuticle on all of my nails. I patted it down so it was secure and painted two quick coats of Gosh Frosted Purple. I removed the stickers and revealed the naked half-moon. I cleaned off the Rejuvacote on the naked nail.
The design turned out good, and the naked half-moon looked great against the silvery purple texture polish. Click on the blue blob on the bottom to check out what the other ladies have come up with for texture friday.
I dag leger vi med tekstur lakker. Jeg elsker dem, da de er nemme at lægge, de tørrer forholdsvis hurtigt og de holder i rigtig lang tid. I dag har jeg lavet en naked half-moon. Jeg brugte Gosh Frosted Purple og en half-moon sticker fra Nail Vinyls. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre har fundet på.
Hello everybody and happy friday. I’m feeling like myself again and can eat normally. I still have the stitches, but they will be gone on their own in about a week or two. Today we are getting inspired by celebrities. I have seen that some of the others have been inspired by clothing worn by a celebrity, but I decided to recreate nail art worn by a famous person.
I chose this manicure by Zooey Deschanel from New Girl, because it looked really cool, easy to do and spring like. This picture is from her Instagram account, and she wears a lot of nail art.
I didn’t go for the colors that were the closest because I wanted to use some of my untried polishes. The four colors I ended up using were all untried until now. I started out with three coats of Kiko Golden Tiffany, a mint with golden shimmer. I then did two lines crossing in the center of the nail with Rimmel Blueberry Whizz, a blue shimmer texture from the Sweetie Crush collection and a striper brush. Using the same brush I added a diagonal line with Finger Paint Sexy Sundress, a bright acid green and a small straight line. I did the gold stripes following the line of the blue with Gosh Frosted Gold. I finished up with a coat of HK Girl top coat.
The look was easy to do. You can change the colors, make the lines smaller or wider or use different finishes for a different look. Click on the blue blob to see what the other ladies have inspired by, I know a couple was inspired by Katy Perry, but their looks are totally different, which is so fun.
Hej og god fredag. I dag er vi blevet inspireret af kendte. Jeg valgte Zooey Deschanel fra New Girl og en manicure hun har haft på. Looket blev rigtig fint og forårsagtigt, og det kan varieres i det uendelige med forskellige farver og typer af lakker. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre er blevet inspireret af 🙂

Hello. This week I’ve been working on an essay for school, but I managed to paint my nails. I was a little lost at first but after googling I found this really pretty design by Nailside, that I copied.
I used two coats of Gosh Frosted Silver on my index and pinky, two coats of Kiko 637 Turquoise, a textured creme on my middle finger and two coats of Kiko 344 Light Misty Green on my ring and thumb. I then used a striping brush, a small nail art brush and a dotting tool together with Essie No Place Like Chrome, to create the tribal design. On my left hand I kept the accent nails with the tribal but switched around the two textured polish to switch things up a bit.
Even though I’m not a huge fan of tribal nail art, this was simple enough for me, and it was easy and fast to do. Every time I’m wearing nails that are different, I’m reminded of how much fun and easy it is to create, so if you haven’t tried skittles or skittelettes our yet do it. Click on the blue blob in the bottom to see what the others have come up with for tribal nail art.

Today we are doing nails inspired by a shoe. I was deciding between my very expensive Louboutin shoes and my crazy awesome holographic glitter shoes from Nine West. In the end the holographic glitter shoes won, partly because the sun was shining bright outside.
I started this look out with three coats of Gosh Holographic Hero. This is the relaunch of the HTF Gosh Holographic. The new version has a better formula, but is a little less holographic. After that I applied a coat of Essence Hello Holo, a holographic glitter, I then stamped a fish net pattern on top in Nails Inc Serena, to mimic the pattern in the shoe. I finish off with a coat of Hello Holo that I dabbed on, and finally a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.
I really love this look. It’s super sparkly and holographic. The look exactly like the shoes. I bought these on sale in Florida and they are my favorite shoes (well after my Louboutin’s). They are super comfortably even though they are high, and add that perfect sparkle to every look.
Bonus shot of the holographic effect. Click on the blue blob in the bottom, to see what shoes the other ladies have been inspired by today.
I dag er vi inspireret af sko. Jeg valgte mine glimmer holografiske sko. Jeg brugte en holografisk lak, holografisk glimmer og lidt stamping, for at matche mine sko. For at se hvilke sko de andre damer er blevet inspireret af, skal du bare klikke på den lille blå blob i bunden.
