Fancy Friday #115 – Holo weather

Happy Friday. I’m currently traveling on vacation so I prepared the next three Fridays posts. The weather in southern Germany is not that great, but hopefully the weather in Italy is much better. This week we are doing Holo weather, which is sunshine. Luckily the sun was shining while I was wearing this manicure, so you can see the beautiful holographic effect.

I started with three coats of China Glaze Neon & On & On on my index and middle finger. I used three coats of Models Own Shades on my ring finger and three coats of China Glaze That’s Shore Bright on my pinky. I then watermarbled using OPI Black Onyx and Appeal4 Marsmallow Holo – Steffi’s Pick. I dropped two drops of the holographic for each black drop just to get more holographic effect.

On my thumb I did three coats of Models Own Shades as well. I think my thumb had the best pattern. I really liked the holographic effect against the black and neon. The only thing was that Neon & On & On chipped the very next day. I’ll try it out again to see if it does the same thing, because I really like the color. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they have done for today.

I dag leger vi med holografiske lakker. Man kan ikke påstå at vejret er til holografiske lakker lige nu, men heldigvis lavede jeg disse i forvejen mens solen stadig skinnede, fordi jeg er på vej på ferie. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #112 – Paradise

To me paradise is tropical beaches like in Hawaii. I have never been, but I really want to go sometimes, because it looks like heaven. I pulled out my MoYou London Tropical plates and stamped with them.

On my index and middle finger I painted three coats of Models Own Beach Bag, a bright peachy-coral neon. I stamped with Mundo de Uñas Black and MoYou London Tropical 03. On my ring finger I painted three coats of OPI This Color’s Making Waves from the Hawaii Collection, a beautiful turquoise/blue/purple duo chrome with gold glitter. I stamped with Depend White Stamping polish and MoYou London Tropical 11. On my pinky I have two coats of China Glaze Water You Waiting For?

I also painted three coats of OPI This Color’s Making Waves on my thumb and stamped two palm trees from MoYou London Tropical 11. I could stare at that blue duo chrome all day. It is so shiny and beautiful. I didn’t plan on picking up any polishes from the Hawaii Collection but they went on sale and this just spoke to me. The Danish summer weather is not here yet. It’s not the warm and it has been raining every day for like a week, not cool. Remember to see what the others have come up with for paradise nails.

#WeekendOffNailArtChallenge – Day 16 Stamping

Today’s theme is stamping. I love stamping, it is a super quick technique and you get great results. Fun fact, my frist real stamping try was for Fancy Friday #13 and I used the same base polish as I did today. It was a total coincidence, and I didn’t realize it until after polishing my nails.

I started with three coats of Models Own Blueberry Muffin, a blueberry scented light blue polish. I was inspired for this manicure by Oooh, Shinies! who did a triple stripes stamping manicure a couple of weeks ago. The first color is used for stamping is Sally Hansen Leaden Lilac, I then turned the pattern in its side and stamped with Depend White stamping polish. Finally I angled the pattern diagonally on the nails and stamped with Barry M Blue magnetic polish.

I used MoYou London Holy Shapes 08 for the pattern. I really like the results of multiple stamping on top of each other. I think it is a fun way of stamping, because you can get really creative and either stamp the same image in different colors or doing different patterns on top of each other. It creates a good depth in the manicure.

#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.

VDSC_0728

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.

VDSC_0731

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 #71 – Drybrush

I have tried the dry brush or distressed technique thought out by Sarah from Chalkboard Nails before, so I wanted to do something a bit different this time. I thought of a post I saw on Lucy’s Stash, where she used duo-chrome polishes on a black base.

VDSC_0107

I started out with two coats of OPI Black Onyx. I then pulled out Dance Legend Celia & Boggs and Models Own Golden Green, from their duo-chrome Beetle Juice collection. I then wiped the brush completely off, before brushing the colors on randomly on the nails.

VDSC_0118

This have to be one of the hardest manicures to take photos of. The colors constantly change depending on the angle, you look at them in. This photo is taken in the shade to better see the colors. It almost looks like those beetle wings that have so many colors on them.

Bonus shot, to show some of the color shift. The dry brush technique is a lot more subtle when doing it like this. I kind of want to try it with a white base instead or with holographic polishes. Click on the blue blob to see what the other ladies have come up with.

I dag kaster vi os ud i dry brush teknikken. Jeg har prøvet det to gange før, og valgte en lidt anden tilgang i dag, for at få et anderledes resultat. Duo-chrome lakkerne får det til at ligne bille vinger. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #63 – Stamping

Hello and happy friday. Today we are stamping, a technique I am really starting to enjoy and love playing around with. This time I went for a tropical look.

VDSC_0243

I started out with three coats of Sally Hansen Wavelength on my thumb and ring finger and three coats of Models Own Tropical Sun. After that dried I stamped with Depend Stamping polish in black using two different plates. On my thumb and ring finger I stamped with BBF 11 and on the rest of my nails I stamped a Hawaii flower design from MoYou 10XL

VDSC_0252

The stamping turned out really crisp on the flowers, a little bit less on the butterflies, but they still look good. Click on the blue blob at the bottom to see what the other ladies have stamped.

I dag stamper vi. Jeg kan rigtig godt lide at stampe og når man først har fundet den stamper der fungere for en, så går det ret let. Mit blev tropisk med sommerfugle og Hawaii blomster. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre piger har fundet på til stamping.

Fancy Friday #46 – Yellow, Red, Blue, Green

It’s friday once again, and today we are playing with colors. The prompt for today is using the colors yellow, red, blue and green. Other than that it’s up to our own imagination. I was empty for ideas once again, so I asked what the other girls were doing. One of them was doing one of the colors as a background and then using the rest as dots. My mind got started and I first thought about doing simple dotted flowers. The idea evolved a bit.

VDSC_0124

I started with two coats of Barry M Blueberry Icecream. I then used a coat of Max Factor Dazzling Blue on my index and pinky, a coat of Models Own Indian Ocean on my middle finger and Kiko Turquoise Microglitter on my ring finger. I then did roses after The Nailasaurus tutorial. I used Cult Nails Evil Queen as the base, Cult Nails Quench as dark accents and Revlon Buttercup for lighter accents. I used China Glaze Starboard for the leafs.

I really like the shimmery base together with the roses. I wanted to do roses again, since it’s almost a year since I did them last. The turned out pretty good and very springlike, since the weather have been nice and sunny in Denmark for the past week. You know the drill, click on the blue blob to see the other ladies nails.

I dag er temaet så simpelt som 4 farver, gul, rød, blå og grøn. Det voldte dog lidt problemer da jeg slet ikke vidste hvad jeg skulle lave. Dog blev jeg inspireret af en af de andre som dog har lavet prikker. Jeg lavede roser, siden det er næsten et år siden jeg sidst lavede dem. De blev ret fine og dejlig forårsagtige.
