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 #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.

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 #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?

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 #77 – Breast Cancer Awareness

Happy friday. Today in honor of breast cancer awareness month we are doing pink manicures. Two years ago before I started on the challenge I wore pink manicures for the entire month of October.

I was so happy with my leopard manicure from last week, that I decided to do the print again. Also a leopard is a really strong and fierce animal, something that all the ladies and men battling breast cancer or any other form of cancer is. I used two coats of Illamasqua Pink Raindrops for the base, China Glaze Put a Bow on It for the spots, and OPI Black Onyx for the outlines. On my index finger I used three coats of China Glaze Full Spectrum and a coat of OPI Pink Shatter from the Pink of Hearts collection from 2011. On my thumb and ring finger I used three coats of OPI More Than a Glimmer from the Pink of Hearts collection form last year.

If you want to help in the battle against breast cancer a lot of nail polish and make up companies make specific pink products where a percentage of the sale goes to research. I know OPI, Essie, China Glaze and Orly usually does a pink collection for the month of October. Click on the blue blob to see how the other ladies have used pink polishes this friday.

I anledning af oktober måned og støt brysterne har vi i dag lavet pink manicure. Jeg elsker lyserød og så er det også en rigtig god sag vi støtter i hele oktober. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvordan de andre har brugt pink.
