Fancy Friday #170 – Ocean

Happy Friday. Today the theme is the ocean, specifically the Mediterranean.


I found a manicure I hadn’t posted yet, that fit into this theme. I used two coats of Barry M Sky Blue and two coats of Revlon Whimsical. The color represent the ocean, while the blue and pink glitter can be the seashells. The white stamping is how the sunlight catches the reflection of the water. The stamping is from the Bundle Monster XL16 plate.

I dag er temaet middelhavet, og jeg fandt en gammel manicure jeg ikke havde postet der passede ind i temaet. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på i dag.



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 #159 – Holographic

Happy belated friday. Time escaped from me yesterday, even though I did these nails thursday night. The weather have been sunny so what better time than now to bust out the holographic polishes.


I did a water marble with a touch of holographic. I started with three coats of Essie Hubby for Dessert. I water marbled with that, Essie Bangle Jangle, OPI Sleigh Parking Only and Appeal4 Marsmallow Holo. I drew a petal design in it and dipped my nails.


The pattern turned out really nice, and the pop of holographic really comes out the play in the sun. It has been a while since I have water marbled, so it was nice to do it again, even though it takes a while and is a little messy.


Fancy Friday #134 – Lace

Happy Friday. Today the theme is lace. I was both inspired by the actual bottle of the nail polish I was using, as well as a manicure done by one of my fellow Fancy Friday bloggers – Nails Always Polished.


I started with three coats of Essie Hubby For Dessert. The Essie polish is from their Bridal 2015 collection, and is a soft lilac jelly. It actually covered pretty well in three coats. For the stamping I used OPI Alpine Snow and the MoYou London Bridal 07 plate. My Alpine Snow is getting low and quite thick, so it doesn’t really work well as a base color anymore, but because of the thickness it works for stamping.


The result is really soft and feminine. It would work well as a bridal manicure, but if you wanted a bit more drama, you could stamp with black instead or add rhinestones. On the bottle cap of the Essie polish there is a faint lace pattern.


I took a picture up close of the polish cap, so you can see the lace detail. It is actually a nice touch; I don’t see many polishes with a decorated cap. It wasn’t till I had the polish in my hands, that I saw the pattern; none of the swatchers online mentioned it. Remember to click by to see what the other ladies did.

I dag er temaet blonder. Blonder kan både være diskrete og mere åbenlyse alt efter farverne på blonden. Jeg valgte at gøre det mere diskret i dag, med hvide blonder på en lys lilla baggrund. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på i dag.


Fancy Friday #95 – Multicolored Stamping

Hello and happy friday. The weather in Denmark is grey and rainy, which affected the lightning in my pictures a little. I can’t wait for spring and summer, it makes it so much easier to take photos outside. Today we are doing multicolored stamping, something I never done before, but it is quite easy.


I started with four coats of Dance Legend Sadness. It was quite sheer since it’s a jelly, I could have stopped at three coats, but I felt that you could still see the nail line through the polish, but the fourth coat took care of that. I then stamped using MoYou London Fashionista 07 and a England Sleeping Palace (the darkest color) and Crown of Thistles (the lighter purple). In the next photo, you can really see the beautiful holographicness of these two polishes.


I used my new stamper from Creative Shop. It stamped really well, I still have to play a bit more with it to get used to it. The stamper is not as squishy as the marshmallow stamper I have been using for the past 1 1/2 years, but it does pick up the image well. I had a bit of trouble with the placement, how much pressure to apply when picking up the image and stamping it on the nail. I got my stamper from Hypnotic Polish, it’s not the cheapest stamper but I really like that it don’t pick up every piece of lint it even looks at, like the squishy ones and that it stays put in the holder. It’s on pre-sale in the shop right now, so just follow the link above to purchase it.

I dag er temaet multifarvet stamping. Jeg har for første gang prøvet min nye Creative Shop stamper. Jeg skal lige vænne mig til at den ikke er så blød som min anden stamper, men umiddelbart virker den rigtig godt. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre har lavet til i dag.


Fancy Friday #83 – Leadlight Technique

Hello and happy friday. Today we are doing the leadlight technique, which is basically coloring in a stamp with jelly polishes.


I started out with two coats of OPI Alpine Snow and then I stamped with Depend Black Stamping Polish and MoYou London Kaleidoscope 06. Then I colored in my stamp using a dotting tool with three of the OPI sorbet polishes from the Texas Collection – Guy Meets Gal-Veston, Too Hot Pink To Hold’Em and Houston We Have a Purple. I really like the look and it looks a bit like a stained glass window. Click on the blue blob to see what the other ladies have done for today.

I dag er det leadlight teknikken vi takler. Det går ud på at farvelægge et stamp med jellylakker. Jeg synes det blev ret fint og ligner en blyindfattet rude. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre har fundet på. 


Fancy Friday #64 – Cloud Mani

Hello and happy friday. Today we are doing the cloud mani technique first thought out by Nailside. Nailside unfortunately doesn’t blog anymore, but her blog can be found right here if you want to check her very cool tape nail art out.

I started with three coats of Cult Nails Scandalous, a sorbet orange jelly. It dried very shiny. Then I added the first row of clouds with Flormar 7, a metallic gold polish. After that I added the second row of clouds with Cult Nails Captivated, an orange jelly with glitter.

The colors may have been a tad bit to close to each other to really tell the apart, but it was more obvious in real life than in these photos. If I try this technique out again I will choose some colors that stand a bit more out from each other. Click on the blue blob to check out the other ladies cloud manicure.

I dag laver vi cloud manis. Det er en ret nem teknik, der ikke kræver andet en to eller flere farver og penslen der kommer med neglelakken. Farverne jeg brugte ligger en smule for tæt på hinanden, men det var nemmere at se de forskellige “skyer” i virkeligheden. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre tøser har fundet på.
