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 #169 – Danish summer

Happy Friday. Today’s theme is Danish summer. This the weather have been very rainy, at least for the most part. I was lucky enough to spend two weeks in the US and 4 days in Malaga, so I got some sunshine and warmth.


I choose to do a grey waterfall manicure to represent the grey skies and rain we had, but I added a touch of gold, to represent the days of sunshine. I started with three coats of Illamsqua Raindrops. I then did a waterfall manicure using OPI Black Onyx, Picture Polish Winter, a England Encore Margot and China Glaze I’m Not Lion.

I dag er temaet dansk sommer, som har været lidt grå og regnfuld, ihvertfald det meste af den tid jeg har været hjemme. Der har dog været gode dage, som er repræsenteret af guld glimmeren i manicuren. Husk at klikke forbi de andre.


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.


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 #155 – Go-to Mani

Happy friday. We have had the most wonderful weather in Denmark the past week, sunshine and high temperatures everyday. Todays theme is our go-to manicure.


When I don’t know what to do, I usually just go for a skittlette manicure. It doesn’t take too long to complete and the different designs and textures makes it interesting to look at for a longer time. I started with three coats of OPI Chiffon My Mind on my thumb, index, middle and pinky fingers. I left the index and pinky nails alone.


For my thumb and middle finger nails, I stamped using MoYou London Black Knight and MoYou London Pro XL 06 plate. That floral pattern is my favorite stamping pattern, and I have used it many times, when I don’t know what else to use. On my ring finger I have two coats of OPI Ce-less-tial is More.


This manicure turned out super clean and summery. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet go to mani. Jeg ender typisk med en skittlette hvis jeg ikke ved hvad jeg ellers skal lave, da den er nem og hurtigt at fuldfører. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på i dag.

Fancy Friday #154 – Flowers

When I did these nails in the beginning of the week, I didn’t know that the theme for today was going to be flowers, but it ended up fitting perfectly with these nails.


I started with three coats of China Glaze Pack Lightly on my thumb and index, this polish does not have the greatest formula and is quite streaky, but the color is really pretty with gold shimmer running through. I stamped with MoYou London Pro Xl14. On the middle and ring finger nail I painted three coats of OPI That’s Hula-rious and stamped with MoYou London Tropical 14. The stamping polish is MoYou London White Knight.


On my pinky I have two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme and a coat of Happy Hands Flowers On The Highway. The MoYou London stamping polishes are really good, and stamps really pretty. They don’t have a weird smell and are easy to clean off the stamper, plate and your fingers. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet blomster. Helt tilfældigt passede det nail art jeg lavede i starten af ugen med temaet i dag. Jeg kan kun anbefale at købe MoYou London stamping lakkerne, de er rigtig gode og lugter ikke mærkeligt eller kraftigt. Husk at kigge forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

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.


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 #146 – Inspired by my family

Happy friday. I feel like spring is almost here. The days are getting longer, the temperatures are slowly rising and the sun is out. This translated into my color choices for today. I didn’t really know what I wanted to do for today, but an idea of using my family’s favorites colors hit me.


My sisters favorite color is pink, so I used that color on my index and pinky. I used two coats of H&M Marsala Chai, it is a little bit more pink in the bottle. I topped it with a coat of INM Northern Lights. My favorite color is purple, so I used three coats of Essence A Whisper of Spring on my thumb and middle finger. I topped it with MoYou London White Knight and the MoYou London Pro XL 06 plate. My mom and dad’s favorite color is blue, so I used two coats of Julie G Blueberry Fizz on my ring finger.


It feels really good to have some lighter spring colors on my nails, after the long fall and winter. The stamp is my favorite one from MoYou London, but I actually let my sister pick the stamp today.


The purple polish has a really pretty pink shimmer running through it, and the brush on the Essence polishes are really nice and wide. The H&M polish had amazing opacity, and was nearly opaque in one coat. If you have not tried the new H&M polishes I highly recommend checking them out. The other two I have tried unto now, have worn really well. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet inspireret af din famile. Jeg valgte at bruge min families yndlingsfarver. Min mor og far har den samme nemlig blå, mens min lillesøsters er lyserød og min er lilla. Heldigvis passede de godt sammen. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.
