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 #171 – Fall

Happy Friday. Todays theme is fall. We had some really great weather in Denmark considering the time of the year. Sunny days and high temperatures. I really like it.

I applied three coats of Illamasqua Charisma, a perfect fall burgundy shimmer, on my thumb, index, middle and ring finger nails. On my middle and ring finger I stamped a leaf pattern using Barry M Gold Foil and the MoYou Tropical 14 plate.

On my pinky I have two coats of OPI Black Onyx and two coats of Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers. I really loved the gold leaf stamping on top of the burgundy color.

I dag er temaet efterår. Jeg elsker mørkerød og guld sammen når det er efterår, så det var helt oplagt.

Fancy Friday #161 – Midsummer

Happy Friday. Yesterday we celebrated midsummer in Denmark. I have not been super inspired by the last couple of prompts, but hopefully a bit of vacation and time away will help.

I didn’t feel like doing some elaborate nail art, so I found a polish that reminded me of fire, China Glaze Cabin Fever. I put on three coats of this pretty duo chrome polish. It has a shift from red/pink to gold/green, and it dried brush stroke free and shiny.

I går fejrede vi Sankt Hans så det er temaet i dag. Jeg har været lidt uinspireret af de seneste temaer i Fælles Fredag, så det blev ikke til noget nail art i dag. Forhåbentlig hjælper lidt ferie på kreativiteten.

Fancy Friday #149 – Fun and games

So I had no clue about todays theme, so I didn’t have a chance to do something new for this week. It’s April Fool’s day, so that inspired me a bit as well as the fun part of the challenge. I found some old manicures I hadn’t shown yet, so that will have to do for today.

VDSC_1318

The first manicure is done with Picture Polish Fool’s Gold and Zoya Vega. I stamped on top with Depend White Stamping Polish and Bundle Monster XL24. The name Fool’s Gold reminded me of April Fool’s.

This is a really old manicure, back from 2012. This was the manicure I wore for my birthday that year. What is more fun than a birthday? I used Sally Hansen Be-Jeweled and Color Club Eternal Beauty.

The last manicure, is my 4th of July manicure from last year. I love celebrating 4th of July, the food, fireworks and spending time with my family. This year I’m flying into Boston on the 4th, so hopefully we will get to see some fireworks. I used China Glaze First Mate on my index and stamped white stars from Bundle Monster XL23, the middle is Orly Star Spangled and the white stripes are also from the XL23 plate. On the ring finger I have the american flag hand painted. The pinky is OPI Alpine Snow and Dollish Polish It’s a Me Mario.

I dag er temaet sjov og ballade. Jeg var helt tom for ideer, så jeg nåede ikke at lave noget til i dag. Jeg fandt derfor nogle gamle manicures som passede lidt ind i temaet. Husk at klikke forbi de andre damer, der har været mere kreative end mig i dag.

Fancy Friday #139 – Christmas manicure 2015

Merry Christmas. I hope you had a good Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I spent yesterday eating dinner with my aunt, uncle, cousins, grandmother, mom, dad and little sister before opening presents. Today we have just lounged around the home in sweatpants and christmas sweaters. Today is optional, but since I did a christmas manicure I thought I would show it to you. I actually included my manicure from last year as well, since I didn’t show you that last year. I also found my christmas manicure from 2012 that I hadn’t shown, so it is almost like a trip down memory lane 🙂

VDSC_0109

This was some of my very first nail art. The base is Essie Bobbing for Baubles. On my index and pinky I have one coat of Ninja Polish The Midas Touch. The christmas tree on my ring finger is done with tape and Sally Hansen Gilty Pleasure and the star is from Wet n Wild Hollywood Walk of Fame. The snowflake is also done in Sally Hansen Gilty Pleasure and with a small nail art brush.

VDSC_0433

I was inspired for this by The Nail Network. I used three coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff. The red dots are China Glaze Cranberry Splash, the green is Sally Hansen Jumpin’ Jade and the gold is OPI Golden Eye.

This year I went for a red skittlette. I was a little bit inspired by Lucy’s Stash and the way she used Zoya Posh. I started with three coats of Zoya Posh on my thumb, index, middle and pinky. On ring finger I did three coats of OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby. I used the same OPI polish and MoYou London Festive 03 plate to stamp snowflakes on my thumb and middle finger nails. Zoya Posh dries matte, but I top-coated it to bring out the glowing shimmer.

Thank you for this year. My next manicure will be my New Years Eve manicure that will be up the first day of the new year. Happy Holidays 🙂

Årest sidste manicure er min jule manicure. Jeg fandt to andre jule manicures i mit arkiv jeg ikke havde lagt op her, så de kommer også med her i dag. Tak for i år, jeg håber i får nogle gode juledage med familie og venner.

Fancy Friday #133 – Friday the 13th

Happy friday. Hopefully nothing bad have happened to you during this friday. I don’t really believe in superstitions like black cats and walking under a ladder. Todays nail are is super simple, since I had a hard time being inspired by the theme. The next themes I’m more inspired by so I will up my game again.

VDSC_1749

I started with three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme. On my middle and pinky finger I dabbed a bit of China Glaze Luxe and Lush, to represent a broken mirror. On my ring finger I used black and red acrylic paints to paint friday in red and 13 in black. I wanted it to look like the calendar app on the iPhone.

VDSC_1757

I liked the broken glass effect the flake polish gave. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for the this week.

I dag er det fredag d. 13, hvilket også er temaet. Jeg tror ikke rigtig på overtro, så jeg havde lidt svært ved at finde ud af hvad jeg skulle lave. Det blev til et ødelagt spejl og en negl inspireret af kalender appen på en iPhone. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #131 – Halloween

Happy almost Halloween. Todays theme is Halloween since it is Halloween tomorrow. I love Halloween, unfortunately we don’t celebrate it nearly as much as the US does.

VDSC_1697

I decided to do a skittlette with the gradient nail and glitter nail inspired by the Halloween post the Nailasaurus put up the other day. I started with one coat of Christian Louboutin Rouge Louboutin on my index and pinky, before doing a gradient with that color and OPI Black Onyx. On my middle and thumb and painted two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme, before stamping using MoYou London Festive 15 and MoYou London Black Knight stamping polish. I placed a silver rhinestone in the center of the spiderweb for a little sparkle.

VDSC_1710

On my ring finger I was inspired by the black rhinestone nail, but unfortunately I didn’t have any small black rhinestones in my large stash of nail art accessories. I tried with the larger ones I had, but I didn’t like the look, so I pulled out some black glequins from Recollections and applied those. It is a bit hard to see in photos, since there is no holographicness to the glitters only shine, but it looks cool in real life.

VDSC_1712

Here is another shot of the spiderweb. It wasn’t until I pulled out the bottle of Rouge Louboutin from the box that I realized that the gradient of the bottle matched the gradient on my nails. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet Halloween, da det er i morgen. Jeg blev inspireret af The Nailasaurus blogindlæg med nemme halloween designs. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på i dag.
