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 #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.

VDSC_0186

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.

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.

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.

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.

Fancy Friday #130 – Texture gradient

Happy friday. Todays theme is texture gradient. The last time I did a texture gradient was back in April for the challenge. I looked through my untried texture polishes and found two that became my inspiration for todays nail art.

VDSC_1669

I started with three coats of OPI Diva of Geneva on my thumb, index and pinky nails, and two coats of the same polish on my middle and ring finger, just to have a base for the gradient. After letting that dry I applied liquid latex around my nails to protect my skin from the gradient. I used Kiko 454 Wine and Kiko 645 Burgundy for the gradient and sponged it on three times.

VDSC_1691

I looked through my stamping plates and found MoYou London Fashionista 07. I stamped using Barry M Gold Foil and my MoYou London Sticky XL Stamper. I didn’t quite get it centered on the nails, but I’m still working out how to stamp precisely on the nails. I left my pinky blank to create a skittlette. It really reminds me of fall and turning leaves. I love burgundy purples for fall. Click by the link in the bottom to see what the other ladies have come up with.

I dag er temaet tekstur gradient. Jeg lod mine to gradient farve inspirerer resten af nail arten. Det minder mig virkelig om bladende der skrifter farve. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #108 – Inspired by a religion

Happy friday. When I first saw this theme, I was like what am I going to do? I could do crosses or the yin and yang sign, but that was to obvious for me. So I googled weird religions and found out about a parody religion called The Invisible Pink Unicorn. That was perfect, so after looking at google images this is what I came up with.

VDSC_1131

I started with three coats of Milani Pink Flare on my index and pinky nail. Pink Flare is supposed to be a dupe for OPI Teenage Dream, a polish I regret not getting when it came out. On my middle and ring finger I have three coats of Barry M Rose Hip stamped with MoYou Happy Birthday 01 and Different Dimension Ditz 2.0.

VDSC_1140

On my thumb I started with two coats of OPI Alpine Snow and then I did a coat of Finger Paints Vivid Reflection, a pink/orange/white flakie. It is not that visible in photos or in real life but I adds a little bit of sparkle when you move your finger. I then painted the logo for the religion with Revlon Passionate Pink and a small detail brush.

Pretty fun challenge, once I found out what I wanted to do. Remember to click on the little frog below to see what the other ladies have come up with for today.

I dag er vi blevet inspireret af en religion. Jeg måtte en tur på google, før jeg fandt parodi religionen The Invisible Pink Unicorn. Så lyserød, glimmer og stjerner måtte på neglene. Husk at klikke på den lille frø for at se hvad de andre har fundet på i dag.

Fancy Friday #99 – Favorite color

Happy friday. Another friday, another skittlette. Today the theme is favorite color. I have 135 purples so by that number it must be my favorite color. Blue is a close second with 130 polishes. To try more than one of my untried I did another skittlette, but rearranged the nails a bit, compared to last friday.

VDSC_0622

I painted my thumb and index three coats of OPI Do You Have This Color in Stock-holm? In then painted three coats of Essie Lilacism and stamped with Mundo de Unas purple and MoYou London Fashionista 07. I was planning stamping with Sally Hansen Leaden Lilac, but you have to be really quick, and my stamping was not quick enough, so I switched to an easier polish. On my pinky I have three coats of Deborah Lippmann Do The Mermaid.

VDSC_0627

I don’t know if I like the stamping pattern I chose for this look. Maybe it’s just the stamping color that is annoying me, since it’s red-toned when the other purples are more on the blue toned side. Next week I promise that there will not be another skittlette. Click on the blue blob to see what the other ladies came up with.

Fancy Friday #98 – Untried

Happy friday. Todays theme is untried, so I grabbed a couple of untried polishes and an untried stamping plate. I created a skittlette and I really like it.

VDSC_0608

On my index and pinky I did three coats of Nubar Rockin the Garden, a pretty dusty blue with blue/green shimmer. On my thumb and middle I painted a coat of Cult Nails Faded and a coat of Cult Nails Disciplined. On top I stamped with Depend 262 and MoYou London Bridal 07 plate. On my ring finger I painted three coats of Different Dimension Pothos, a beautiful rose gold/silver flake polish.

VDSC_0614

Pothos is super shiny and reflective. I was inspired by Martha from ChitChatNails. She did a skittlette using Different Dimension Pothos, that I just love. You can see it right here. Click on the blue blob to see what the other did with untried.

I dag er temaet uprøvet. Jeg fandt nogle uprøvede lakker og en uprøvet stamping plade fra MoYou London. Jeg synes det blev en ret fin skittlette. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre har lavet.
