Fancy Friday #167 – Recreate your first nail art

Happy Friday. Today we are recreating our first nail art. I chose the nail art I did for the very first Fancy Friday many many Fridays ago. I updated it a little bit, and I think it turned out so good.


Here is the original manicure, and just click here, to be taken to the original blogpost.


I have two coats of China Glaze First Mate on my index and pinky, and two studs. I switched the sides I placed them on. On my middle I have three coats of Barry M Sky Blue, because I destashed the Essence polish I used. Instead of the rhinestones I did a little stamping using MoYou London Pro XL14 and MoYou London White Knight. On my ring finger I have three coats of Kiko 294 Indigo and some round blue iridescent glequins from BornPrettyStore.

I dag skal vi genskabe vores første nail art. Jeg har genskabt den første Fælles Fredag manicure jeg lavede, dog opdaterede jeg den lidt, med noget stamping i stedet for de rhinsten jeg havde på en af neglene. 



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 #141 – Mardi Gras

Hello and happy Friday. We took a little break in the Fancy Friday group to renew our energy, but now we are back. In Denmark we have a tradition called Fastelavn  where kids dress up in costumes and go from door to door, like a Danish Halloween, but without the scary part. So since that falls on this sunday we decided for this to be our theme for this week.


The first thing I thought of was dressing up, which lead my brain to carnivals which in turn landed me on Mardi Gras. The colors of Mardi Gras is gold/yellow, green and purple, so I did a simple striping/fire works manicure with those three colors.


For the base I used three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme, and free-handed the lines using a striping brush and Barry M Gold Foil for the gold, Wet n Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer for the purple and Kiko 531 Pearly Green Butterfly for the green. This is super simple and super fast to do, and it can be varied with different colors and finishes.


A couple of years ago I was in New Orleans, although not for Mardi Gras, but we brought home some Mardi Gras beads, so they had to be included in a photo with these nails, since they match so well. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I anledning af Fastelavn på søndag, er det fredagens tema. Jeg kom straks til at tænke på Mardi Gras i New Orleans, hvor folk klæder sig ud og går i parader på gaden. Mardi Gras farverne er guld, grøn og lilla, så jeg lavede en simpel striping manicure med de tre farver. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på. 


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 #130 – Texture gradient

Happy friday. Todays theme is texture gradient. The last time I did a texture gradient was back in April for the challenge. I looked through my untried texture polishes and found two that became my inspiration for todays nail art.


I started with three coats of OPI Diva of Geneva on my thumb, index and pinky nails, and two coats of the same polish on my middle and ring finger, just to have a base for the gradient. After letting that dry I applied liquid latex around my nails to protect my skin from the gradient. I used Kiko 454 Wine and Kiko 645 Burgundy for the gradient and sponged it on three times.


I looked through my stamping plates and found MoYou London Fashionista 07. I stamped using Barry M Gold Foil and my MoYou London Sticky XL Stamper. I didn’t quite get it centered on the nails, but I’m still working out how to stamp precisely on the nails. I left my pinky blank to create a skittlette. It really reminds me of fall and turning leaves. I love burgundy purples for fall. Click by the link in the bottom to see what the other ladies have come up with.



I dag er temaet tekstur gradient. Jeg lod mine to gradient farve inspirerer resten af nail arten. Det minder mig virkelig om bladende der skrifter farve. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på. 


#WeekendOffNailArtChallenge – Day 10 / Fancy Friday #102 – Orange

Today’s theme is orange. I long time ago, a theme in Fancy Friday was sideway french – click here to see that. I still love that manicure. To not just do a plain swatch I decided to do a sideway french dotted manicure with orange shades.


I started with two coats of OPI Alpine Snow. I then added dots using two different sized dotting tools, even though the almost turned out the same size on the nail. I used OPI Toucan Do It If You Try, China Glaze Sun of a Peach, Kiko Apricot and Models Own Copper Pot to get a little sparkle.


I really liked how the sideway french dots looked. It was super easy to do, and a twist on the more classic dotted french tip. I’m not a huge fan of orange, but a little orange on a white base was quite nice.

Fancy Friday #88 – New Years Eve Waterfall Nails

Happy new year. I hope you all made it safely into the new year. I had a fun low-key night in high heels and a very glittery dress (I left glitter everywhere I walked and sat). Today is the first friday of 2015, and we are showing off our new years eve nails. I went with a simple waterfall nail.


I used a total of 11 polishes for this look. The black nails have a base of two coats of OPI Black Onyx. The waterfall stripes are made with Sally Hansen Liquid Gold, Showgirl Chic and Celeb City, Kiko 232, OPI My Voice Is A Little Norse and Spark de Triomphe. For the silver accent nail I used Orly Mirrorball as the base and OPI Black Onyx, China Glaze Some Like it Haute, Wet n Wild Tonight’s Gonna Be a Good Night and Deborah Lippmann Twilight Tone.


The look like fireworks or glittering garland. They matched my dress perfectly. Sammy from the Nailasaurus is the maker behind the waterfall nail art, so I big thank you to her for inventing the technique, because I love it and have used it a couple of times the past year. Click on the blue blob to see what the other ladies had on their nails as we rang in the new year.

Godt nytår. Jeg håber at alle kom sikkert ind i det nye år. Det er den første fredag i 2015, så i dag viser vi vores nytårsnegle. Jeg lavede en simpel waterfall manicure, med sølv, guld og sort. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre havde på da vi ringede det nye år ind.
