Fancy Friday #166 – Neon

Happy friday. I just came home from a little extra vacation in Malaga, Spain. I had a great summer and have two more weeks left before I start my internship. Today the theme is neon, and what is more fitting during the summer months. I love neons, and have been on a hunt for a dupe for the original Flip Flop Fantasy from China Glaze, and I think I have found a really close one, which I’m wearing today. I’m planning on doing a huge dupes post for Flip Flop Fantasy, because I have a lot of close polishes after a year of searching.

I have three coats of China Glaze Shocking Pink on my index and pinky nails. This looks really close to the original Flip Flop Fantasy. I have three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme on my thumb, middle and ring finger. I stamped with the MoYou London Pro XL 06 plate on my thumb and middle using MoYou London Black Knight. On my ring finger I stamped with the MoYou London Fashionista 04 plate.

I added a little bit of China Glaze Shocking Pink to some of the petals on the flower nails, to add a pop of color on those nails as well. If I do it again I will probably do a little bit of dry brushing on the nail before stamping. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet neon. Jeg har fundet en lak der er ret tæt på min yndlingsneon lak fra China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #157 – Summer

Happy friday. Summer is almost here, at least the temperatures are high and the sun is shining most of the time, I love it. I have been outside in the sun for as long as possible, to soak up as many sun rays as possible before they leave us again.

I did another dry brush manicure for the base of the nail art. It is so easy and fast and looks really good. I started with two coats of OPI Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around. Then I dry brushed using China Glaze Glow With the Flow, OPI Kiss Me I’m Brazilian and China Glaze Feel The Breeze. I then stamped a flamingo pattern on top using MoYou London Tropical 16 plate and MoYou London White Knight.

I have wanted to do flamingo nail art for the past couple of months but never had an occasion to do it, but I thought the pink color of the flamingo is very summery and flamingos also remind me of Florida, the Sunshine State.

I dag er temaet sommer. Jeg har haft flamingo negle på hjernen i et par måneder og tænkte nu måtte det være. Jeg elsker deres fine lyserøde farve og så minder de mig om Florida og solskin.

Fancy Friday #156 – Favorite colors

Happy Friday. My favorite color is purple, but I have done a lot of nail art with the color lately, so I decided to switch it up. Also really like blue so I found a couple of new blue and purple polishes I hadn’t used yet and did a dry brush manicure, inspired by Chalkboard Nails.

VDSC_0207

I started out with a base of Wet n Wild French White Creme. On top of that I dry brushed with China Glaze Too Yacht To Handle, Picture Polish, Blue Bird, Forget Me Not and Spring. On top of that I dry brushed with OPI Black Onyx.

It’s been a while since I have done a dry brush manicure, but it is a really easy and fast to do, and has a really cool effect. Remember to check out the other ladies and their nail art.

I dag er temaet yndlingsfarver. Jeg elsker lilla og blå, så jeg fandt nogle forskellige blå og lilla farver jeg ikke havde brugt før og lavede en dry brush manicure med. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #153 – Purple

Todays theme is purple. Purple is my favorite color, and I have a lot of purple nail polishes. Todays manicure is another one from the vault of nail art on my computer. I did this manicure almost a year ago, so now is the time to post it.

I have two coats of China Glaze Plur-ple on my index and pinky nail. This is from last years neon collection. I love cool-toned purples and this one is really bright and fun. On my middle and ring finger I have two coats of a England Encore Margot, topped with a stamp from MoYou London Holy Shapes 08 plate. The pinky is topped with a coat of Claire’s Sequins, a hot pink, white and black glitter polish.

I like the neon combined with the holographic polish. All the a England holographic polishes, are soft in their holographic-ness. They are never in your face, but more of a sophisticated holographic polish. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet lilla. Min yndlingsfarve er lilla. Jeg havde denne manicure liggende i min upublicerede mappe på computeren, og den passede helt perfekt med dagens tema. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på i dag.

Fancy Friday #152 – Up and down (Gradient)

Happy belated Friday. I’m a bit late with this weeks post, but I had a Confirmation on Friday, and forgot to schedule the post before I left in the morning.

VDSC_0297

This is an old manicure from 2013. I didn’t have time to do something new for this week that fit with the theme. I was not sure what the prompt meant, so I took it quite literally, and figured since a gradient is done with up and down motions it must count.

VDSC_0300

I used three of the polishes from the original 80’s Baby Collection from Different Dimension. On my index I have Ditz, the middle is Whatever and the pinky is Homeboy. The gradient is done with all three Ditz at the cuticle, Whatever in the middle and Homeboy at the tip. This was actually my very first gradient, so the color blending is not as great.

I dag er temaet op og ned. Jeg er lidt forsinket i denne uge, da jeg var til konfirmation i fredags, og glemte at få lagt indlægget op inden jeg tog hjemmefra. Husk at klikke forbi de andre damer.

Fancy Friday #150 – Dots

Happy friday. I’m loving the longer days, and the bushes are starting to turn green. I was inspired for todays manicure by Kelli Marissa formerly known as The Nail Polish Challenge. She did a really cute pastel neon dotted manicure. You can find the original on her Instagram account.

VDSC_0021

I started with three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme. Once that was dry I dotted the first curved line with China Glaze Feel The Breeze. I continued with Cult Nails Love at 1st Sight, China Glaze Boho Blues, China Glaze Treble Maker and finally China Glaze Highlight of my Summer.

VDSC_0020

I varied the placement of the dots on the nails so it wasn’t the same pattern on all the nails. I wish I had used some more pastel colors. The pink and purple where a little to muted or dark looking back. Remember to click by the other ladies.

I dag leger vi med prikker. Jeg blev inspireret af noget nail art Kelli Marissa havde lavet på Instagram. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har lavet til i dag.

Fancy Friday #142 – Love

Happy Friday everyone. Since we are only two days away from Valentines Day, the theme for this Friday is love. I was in a bit of a hurry with this manicure, since I’m currently on my way on a skirt, so I repurposed or updated my existing manicure. I actually have another idea in mind for another pink/red manicure, so that will probably be up when I get home from vacation.

VDSC_2050

My original manicure had three coats of Color Club Hot-Hot-Hot Pants on my index and middle finger, so I added some nail vinyls from Twinkled T and painted a coat of China Glaze Strawberry Fields over it, to add a little love. On my ring finger I have three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme and I stamped using MoYou London Black Knight and MoYou London Fashionista plate 05. On my pinky I have three coats of a England Merlin to add a little glitter

VDSC_2065

On my thumb I have the same chevron pattern as on my ring finger. I really enjoy these skittlette manicures, not only because I get to wear multiple polishes and textures, but it makes the manicure more interesting to look at, than if it was just one color or one nail art technique. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they have done for today.

I dag er temaet til Fælles Fredag kærlighed og da jeg er på vej på skiferie, opdaterede jeg min eksisterende manicure med lidt hjerter og nail vinyls. Husk at klikke forbi de andre tøser for at se hvad de har fundet på til i dag.
