Fancy Friday #172 – Rainbow

Happy Friday. Todays theme is rainbow. I had this specific idea for a manicure in my head ever since I purchased these polishes last year, and finally had an opportunity to do it.


I have three coats of OPI This Gown Needs a Crown on my thumb, index and pinky. On my middle finger nail I have two coats of OPI My Signature is “DC” as the base for the water marble and three coats of Floss Gloss Dimepiece on my ring finger. I accidentally dipped the ring finger in the water, but the effect turned out really great.


The water marble is done with all of the OPI Color Paints polishes – Magenta Muse, Chromatic Orange, Primarily Yellow, Landscape Artist, Turquoise Aesthetic, Indigo Motif, Purple Perspective and Pen & Pink. I just dropped the polishes in without making a design before dipping in my finger. It turned out exactly as I had imagined. I’m definitely going to be using these polishes for a water marble again.

I dag er temaet regnbue. Jeg har haft ideen til denne water marble lige siden jeg købte lakkerne sidste år, og det blev lige som jeg havde forestillet mig. 



Fancy Friday #121 – Pond manicure

Today I got a chance to play a little with my new OPI Color Paints and I really like them so far. They apply nicely and dry to a glossy and squishy finish. The photos do not do these nails justice, I couldn’t seem to capture the nail art as pretty as it is in real life.

I started with two coats of OPI Pen & Pink and after letting that dry I stamped with Barry M Silver Foil and MoYou London Pro 06 XL. On my pinky I tried stamping with Sally Hansen Celeb City and on my ring finger OPI My Signature is “DC” but those didn’t show up as well as I wanted them to. I then painted a coat of OPI Pen & Pink on top and finish with a top coat.


I contemplated stamping twice, but decided against it, I’ll probably try that with one of the other colors and post the result when I get around to trying it out. I like the glittery effect that the pinky and ring finger have but they don’t show up as well as the Barry M Silver Foil. I edited this photo a bit and played up the contrasts a tiny bit so it would show up better in the photos.


Bonus shot of my thumb. Expect to see more nail art done with the OPI Color Paints. When I started seeing swatches pop up around the internet I was not interested, but the more nail art I saw done with them, the more I liked them, and I am just one short of the full collection.

I dag laver vi pond manis. Jeg legede lidt med mine nye OPI Color Paints og noget stamping. Billederne viser slet ikke hvor fint der er i virkeligheden, men billede nummer 2 viser det lidt bedre efter jeg skruede på for kontrasterne i iPhoto.
