Happy Friday. Today is my birthday, I’m turning 22, and what better way to celebrate that with a little rainbow skittle on the nails. This manicure was completely copied from Sarah from Chalkboard Nails and her Rainbow Leopard Skittles, from the design to the nail polish colors, so all credit goes to her 🙂
I started with three coats of each of the neon shimmers from China Glaze. On my index I have I’m With the Lifeguard, on my middle nail I have Sun-Kissed, the ring finger is Orange You Hot? and the pinky is Surfin’ For Boys, these colors are super fun and bright. I then added the leopard print with a dotting tool for the white part which is OPI Alpine Snow and a small detail brush for the black outline which is OPI Black Onyx.
To complete the rainbow I have Splish Splash also from China Glaze. This manicure was super easy and quick to do, and you could vary the base colors for different results. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they have come up with for today.

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’m a huge cake fan. Well I’m actually a huge fan of anything sweet, except cake with fruit in it, although I don’t mind banana or certain berries. Give my something with chocolate and I’m happy. I also love baking and decorating, so today was right up my alley. I planned to do one stroke flowers, but half of the time they didn’t look good when I practiced, so instead I went to Carlos Bakery’s website, since I’m also a huge fan of Cake Boss.
I looked through the gallery, and came across this cake with leopard spots, glitter and bows, and thought it was just perfect and would look super cute as nail art. Also it has been over a year since I have done a leopard print on my nails.
I started out with two coats of Essie Mint Candy Apple, for the base of the cake. Then I did the spots in Kiko Light Misty Green with a dotting tool, and outlined the spots with OPI Black Onyx using a small nail art brush. For the glitter accent I used three coats of Gosh Frosted Silver, and did the bow again using Black Onyx and the small brush. I finished off all the nails with a coat of Poshe topcoat.
This mani is so cute, and really reminded me that I should do leopard spots more often, because they are so easy, but look really cool. This challenge, really made me want to bake a batch of fudge brownies, so I think that is going to happen tomorrow. I know there are some of the girls who did cupcakes this week, so click on the blue blob to see that.
I dag er det international kage dekorations dag, og det fejre vi også i Fælles Fredag. Jeg elsker at bage og spise kage, så jeg kiggede forbi Carlos Bakery’s hjemmeside og fandt en rigtig flot kage med leopard prikker, glimmer og sløjfer.

Today’s Fancy Friday theme is Animal Print. This was my first time doing any animal print, but I have wanted to do leopard nail art for a while. Tuesday or actually more like Wednesday morning my group handed in our project to the Copy Central for printing, so Monday we will be handing it in, before going to a summerhouse for 4 days to prepare a bit for the exam. I have worked an average of 13 hours a day for 1 week, so I have just spent the last 3 days doing almost nothing.
I loved the result, and cannot wait to do it again with a different color combo. I don’t know where leopards with holographic glitter spots live, but I want to see them 😉
I used Sally Hansen Malt as the base from the Tracey Reese collection for Spring 2011, I used China Glaze I’m Not Lion (get it… It’s leopard 😉 for the spots made with a dottingtool and China Glaze Liquid Leather for the outline made with a small brush from BornPrettyStore. I used the Dry Drops from Sephora before using Cult Nails Wicked Fast to prevent smudging.
Next weeks theme is Glitterbomb, and I already have something in mind. Click on the blue blob to check out what the other ladies did for Animal Print.
Denne uge var dyreprint, og jeg valgte at lave leopard spots. De blev vildt fine, jeg elsker glimmeren. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre har fundet på i denne uge.
