Fancy Friday #148 – Nimbus nail art

Happy Good Friday. I hope you had a good week and is enjoying the Easter break. Today we are doing Nimbus or Halo nail art. The original artist behind this technique is Sammy from The Nailasaurus. You can see the last time I did Nimbus nail art right here. It was in the same color scheme as this time, but that was not on purpose.

I did three coats of Appeal4 Out of this World on my thumb and index nail. On the other nails I started out with two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme. On my pinky I topped that with one coat of Kiko 230 Sparkle Touch Rainbow Glitter. It is a little hard to see, but it is an iridescent glitter. For the Nimbus nails I used OPI Planks a Lot, Kiko 504 Pearly Glaze Pink, Different Dimension Aria, H&M Marsala Chai and Appeal4 Out of this World, and just layered them.

The last couple of days the sun have been shining, but of course it is raining the day I need to take photos, so the holographic polish on my index didn’t show up as well, so here is a flash photo to show the holographicness. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet Nimbus nail art. Det er en teknik som Sammy fra The Nailasaurus har fundet på. Den er ganske simpel og hurtigt at lave. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #146 – Inspired by my family

Happy friday. I feel like spring is almost here. The days are getting longer, the temperatures are slowly rising and the sun is out. This translated into my color choices for today. I didn’t really know what I wanted to do for today, but an idea of using my family’s favorites colors hit me.

My sisters favorite color is pink, so I used that color on my index and pinky. I used two coats of H&M Marsala Chai, it is a little bit more pink in the bottle. I topped it with a coat of INM Northern Lights. My favorite color is purple, so I used three coats of Essence A Whisper of Spring on my thumb and middle finger. I topped it with MoYou London White Knight and the MoYou London Pro XL 06 plate. My mom and dad’s favorite color is blue, so I used two coats of Julie G Blueberry Fizz on my ring finger.

It feels really good to have some lighter spring colors on my nails, after the long fall and winter. The stamp is my favorite one from MoYou London, but I actually let my sister pick the stamp today.

The purple polish has a really pretty pink shimmer running through it, and the brush on the Essence polishes are really nice and wide. The H&M polish had amazing opacity, and was nearly opaque in one coat. If you have not tried the new H&M polishes I highly recommend checking them out. The other two I have tried unto now, have worn really well. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet inspireret af din famile. Jeg valgte at bruge min families yndlingsfarver. Min mor og far har den samme nemlig blå, mens min lillesøsters er lyserød og min er lilla. Heldigvis passede de godt sammen. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #143 – Marbling

Happy Friday from snowy Austria. I’m on my last day of our skiing vacation, I had such a great time here this past week, and I don’t wanna go home to my everyday life. I did these nails the day before I left, and after the first day of skiing with gloves on, the white nails had turned cream-colored, and after a couple of days the silver stamping and the silver glitter had a gold hue. I don’t know what happened, I have never had a nail polish turn a different color on me, after a couple of days of wear.

I went the easy route for this nail art, since I didn’t have a lot of time to complete it. I saw this technique on OhMyGoshPolish on YouTube and it was so simple. I painted two coats of H&M Mauve It on my thumb, index and pinky nail and three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme on my middle and ring finger. I stamped with Barry M Silver Foil and MoYou London Holy Shapes 08 plate on the thumb and index nails, and I painted two coats of Essie Silver Bullions on my pinky nail. For the marble dots on my middle and ring finger, I just swirled Mauve It and French White Creme together without blending it all the way, and then I just dipped my dotting tool in the colors and dotted it on my nails.

Opening and closing ski boots and carrying ski’s lead to three breaks on my nails, so they look a little wonky, because I refuse to file them all the way down. I have to think about next week, because that theme is Bollywood, and I’m not sure what to do. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet marmorering, jeg valgte den lidt lette løsning, med marmorerede prikker. Disse negle havde det ikke så godt efter et par dage på ski, hvor de to hvide negle var blevet cremefarvede og sølvstampingen og glimmeren var blevet guld. Husk at kigge forbi de andre damer for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #78 – A tutorial

Today the task is to create a tutorial, so I made my very first video tutorial. It was a little bit difficult getting the right angle, so I could see what I was doing but at the same time not blocking the camera. I hope you like it.

All the colors I used are listed in the description box below the video. I used the standard chevrons from NailVinyls – you can purchase them right here. They are super easy to use and they have a ton of different shapes and sizes.

I was inspired by an envelope from NailVinyls that my latest order came in. The pattern was so fun and happy that I just had to recreate it on my nails. I really liked doing a video tutorial, it is a bit time-consuming, but I would like to do more.

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.

VDSC_0192

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

Barry M – Instant Nail Effects Blue Print

I’m here again with a Barry M polish. I decided to just take my swatches from alphabetic order from brand name. I just thought I tell you before the fast reader noticed 😉 This is Blue Print another Barry M crackle. I have the pink one too, but my swatches came out quite blurry so I will redo those before you see them 🙂

This is  a periwinkle blue crackle. I don’t have anything like it so it’s quite a unique crackle polish. It’s easy to apply but it smells weird when you apply it. The other colors don’t smell that way so it could be the blue color making it do that. I have it over H&M Dark Blue which is a dark blue jelly. It looks almost black in the photos. It’s from a long time ago so that’s why my nails are so short.

Barry M – Instant Nail Effects White Frost

Hi everybody. A lot have been happening in the last few months where I haven’t been blogging. I graduated from high school June 26th and before that I had a month of exams, 3 written and 5 oral ones, so I decided to concentrate on reading for those. Now I have applied to college and waiting on hearing if I’m accepted their. I can’t imagine not seeing my classmates everyday :/ I also managed to swatch my entire nail polish collection of 300 polishes (OMG I did not know that I had that many) and create an entire new buy list for my summer vacation in Florida where I will be going tomorrow. I have prepared post every other day for you guys and on the other days I will post about what I have been doing and what I have bought. I’m also thinking about starting a YouTube channel which will both be nail polish and makeup related. Plus I have decided to only write in English. It’s time-consuming writing both in Danish and in English, I know a lot more nail polish words in English, plus if I start a YouTube channel that will be in English too.

Today I have a polish from Barry M. It’s one of their instant nail effects in White Frost. I have it over H&M Light Pink in this photo. You all know what crackle is now, so I won’t bother you with explaining what it is 🙂
