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 #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.

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.

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”

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.

Fancy Friday #137 – Christmas tradition

Happy Friday. Today the theme is christmas traditions. In my family we have for a lot of years, cut down our own Christmas tree, around the middle of December. For the past couple of years, my mom and dad have been out-of-town on a christmas trip during the weekend we get our christmas tree, so it have been me and my sisters job to choose the tree. This Sunday we are getting a tree, so what was more fitting than to put on some christmas trees on my nails?

VDSC_1834

I started with three coats of Deborah Lippmann You Got Me Started, a dove grey creme. On my middle and ring finger, I painted an abstract christmas tree inspired by OhMyGoshPolish. I used Illamasqua Swinger topped with Different Dimension Sexy and I Know It on my middle finger. On my ring finger I did the christmas tree in OPI My Voice is a Little Norse. The stars are from Barry M Starlight. My pinky is topped with a coat of China Glaze Razzle Me Dazzle Me.

I think the christmas trees turned out really cute, I really like the holographic glitters, it adds a little extra. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

Fancy Friday #109 – Recreate a YouTube tutorial

Happy friday. I had some busy days, and that affected my index nail, so the corner broke of twice, so annoying. Today we are recreating a YouTube tutorial. choose these pretty flowers by PackaPunchPolish.

VDSC_1190

I started with two coats of Barry M Pit Stop as the base. I then painted five petal flowers using Barry M Kiwi (bright green), Revlon Passionate Pink (pink), China Glaze Happy Go Lucky (yellow), Essie e-nuf is e-nuf (red) and OPI That’s Hula-rious (mint green) with a small detail brush. I then added three dots in the center of each flower using the same brush and OPI Black Onyx. I finished off with a coat of Seche Vite.

I really like these flowers and they were super easy to do. If you haven’t checked out Pack a Punch Polish’s YouTube channel out yet, please do, she is really talented. Remember to click on the blue frog to see what the other ladies have done for today.

Fancy Friday #98 – Untried

Happy friday. Todays theme is untried, so I grabbed a couple of untried polishes and an untried stamping plate. I created a skittlette and I really like it.

VDSC_0608

On my index and pinky I did three coats of Nubar Rockin the Garden, a pretty dusty blue with blue/green shimmer. On my thumb and middle I painted a coat of Cult Nails Faded and a coat of Cult Nails Disciplined. On top I stamped with Depend 262 and MoYou London Bridal 07 plate. On my ring finger I painted three coats of Different Dimension Pothos, a beautiful rose gold/silver flake polish.

Pothos is super shiny and reflective. I was inspired by Martha from ChitChatNails. She did a skittlette using Different Dimension Pothos, that I just love. You can see it right here. Click on the blue blob to see what the other did with untried.

I dag er temaet uprøvet. Jeg fandt nogle uprøvede lakker og en uprøvet stamping plade fra MoYou London. Jeg synes det blev en ret fin skittlette. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre har lavet.

Fancy Friday #93 – Text

Happy friday. Today I have tried a new technique, the newspaper print technique. I used a typography set from The New Black, that I got this summer in the US. I visited a couple of TJ Maxx and Marshalls (I highly recommend visiting these stores as you can make great finds). I got the set for 3 dollars, instead of the 16$ it usually retails for. It contains a topcoat, a polish, a transfer solution and ten papers with text (2 different ones). I think the transfer solution is just bottled rubbing alcohol.

VDSC_0633

I used two coats of the grey polish that was included in the set. I applied easily with no streaking. I left the polish to dry for an hour, before continuing. I then applied a coat of the transfer solution to the entire nail, and pressed a piece of paper on top. I then applied another coat of the transfer solution on top and pressed a cotton pad on top and held it in place for 30 seconds. I then gently lifted the paper off and revealed the text transfer. Instead of the transfer solution you could use either rubbing alcohol or vodka. Instead of the paper with text, you can use a fresh newspaper.

VDSC_0638

After letting the transfer solution dry and evaporate from the nail, I applied a coat of Seche Vite to the nail to get a glossy finish. I really like this, and it was so easy to do. Some places it transferred better than others, but I think the key is to make sure that the paper is saturated with alcohol and that you press firmly on the entire nail. Click on the blue blob to see how the other ladies interpreted text.

I dag er temaet tekst. Jeg havde et sæt med tekst transfer liggende fra The New Black, som jeg besluttede at teste. Det virkede rigtig godt, men man kan sagtens lave det med almindelig husholdnings alkohol eller vodka og en frisk avis. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvordan de andre har fortolket tekst.

Fancy Friday #86 – Inspired by Christmas Gifts

Hello and happy friday. It’s almost christmas. I handed in my project yesterday, and oh did it feel good. I also started wrapping gifts and got partly inspired by my christmas wrapping paper this year for todays manicure. The christmas tree was purchased on sunday, and we are going to put it up tomorrow. It beginning to look a lot like christmas 🙂

VDSC_0423

I love the look of pretty wrapped presents, but I’m not a huge fan of the overly christmassy paper, with elves and christmas trees, so I went a little more fancy both with my wrapping paper, one that is gold holographic and one that is silver holographic and a white with gold stripes. On my index finger I painted two coats of OPI Alpine Snow and stamped with BBF 08 and Barry M Gold. My index finger broke the corner the other day (in case you were wondering why it looked crooked) On my middle finger I painted two coats of Alpine Snow again and a coat of China Glaze White Cap. After that dried I added zig zag nail vinyls and painted two coats of Orly Bling over.

VDSC_0427

On my ring finger I painted two coats of OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby and stamped with China Glaze Cranberry Splash and MoYou London Fashionista plate 07. On my pinky I did two coats of Depend 262 and stamped with Barry M Silver and MoYou London Pro 05. The bow stamp is from MoYou Happy Birthday 01. The black is Depend Black Stamping polish and the white is Depend White Stamping polish.

VDSC_0428

On my thumb I painted three coats of Appeal4 Marsmallow Holo, than stamped with my well used christmas plate, MoYou London Festive 03 and Depend White Stamping polish. I loved how they turned out, and also really like the double stamping technique. Click on the blue blob to see what the other ladies have come up with. Oh and Happy Holidays if I don’t have time to check back in before next friday.

Glædelig jul. I går begyndte jeg at pakke de første julegaver ind og blev delvist inspireret af mit indpakningspapir. Jeg havde allerede ideen i begyndelsen af december så det var bare at vælge hvordan papiret skulle se ud på neglene. Jeg synes det blev ret fint og man kan jo også bruge metoden til fødselsdagsnegle. Hvis man mangler indpakningspapir har Føtex mange fine holografiske. Jeg har købt den sølv og guld og de er rigtig flotte. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre damer har lavet.
