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 #168 – Accent nail

Happy Friday. Today the theme is accent nail, and I choose to do a skittlette, with two accent nails, instead of one.

I started with three coats of Wet n Wild Pale in Comparison on my thumb, index, middle and pinky finger. For one of my accent nails I did three coats of Maybelline Pink Party Dress, a beautiful rose gold glitter. I topped my index and pinky nails with China Glaze Fairy Dust. On my thumb and middle I stamped using MoYou London Pro XL11 and a England Sleeping Palace.

I liked the manicure better without the stamping, I don’t know if it is the stamp itself or the color of the stamp, but it looked more clean without it.

I dag er temaet accent negl. Jeg lavede en skittlette med to accent negle i stedet for en, men jeg kunne bedre lide manicuren før jeg lavede stampingen.

Fancy Friday #162 – Fishtail Nail art

Happy Friday. It is almost time for my vacation, and I can’t wait to find some sunshine and heath after the miserable weather we have been having in Denmark for the past week. I actually chose the theme for today, which is fishtail or braided nail art. I used this tutorial from Lucy’s Stash

I started with two coats of Cult Nails Love at 1st Sight on my thumb, index, middle and ring finger nails. On my pinky I have two coats of Mesauda Aquamarine topped with one coat of Claire’s Glam. I used the Cult Nails polish, the Mesuada polish and Essie Nothing Else Metals for the braided nails.

I just alternated between the different colors until I reached the end of the nail. I took a little longer than I expected because I had to grasp the technique and the colors had to dry in between. Next time I will try to make the lines a little wider so I don’t need as many to complete the whole nail. I really like to pop of chrome in between the two creme colors.

I dag er temaet flettet nail art. Jeg brugte to creme lakker og en chrome lak, og det gav et rigtig fint spil mellem farverne. Næste gang jeg prøver det, vil jeg nok lave striperne lidt tykkere så jeg ikke skal lave så mange for at have en hel negl.

Fancy Friday #159 – Holographic

Happy belated friday. Time escaped from me yesterday, even though I did these nails thursday night. The weather have been sunny so what better time than now to bust out the holographic polishes.

I did a water marble with a touch of holographic. I started with three coats of Essie Hubby for Dessert. I water marbled with that, Essie Bangle Jangle, OPI Sleigh Parking Only and Appeal4 Marsmallow Holo. I drew a petal design in it and dipped my nails.

The pattern turned out really nice, and the pop of holographic really comes out the play in the sun. It has been a while since I have water marbled, so it was nice to do it again, even though it takes a while and is a little messy.

Fancy Friday #158 – Graphic nail art

Happy friday. I had my first exam today, and came out with an A. I had not expected this great of a grade, since it was a really hard exam and I would be happy if I just passed the exam. Today we are doing graphic nail art.

VDSC_0236

I had another idea in mind, but because of the exam, I had to be something quick to do. I started out with two coats of Color Club Eternal Beauty, a purple holographic polish, that really shines in sunlight. I stamped with MoYou London White Knight and MoYou London Hipster 07 plate. The stamping was a little hard to transfer because of the thin lines.

I dag er temaet grafiske negle. Jeg valgte lidt stamping, da jeg ikke havde meget tid på grund af en eksamen i dag. Jeg elsker holografiske lakker, og i disse solskinsdage kommer de virkelig til sin ret.

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.

VDSC_1152

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.

VDSC_1176

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.
