Fancy Friday #167 – Recreate your first nail art

Happy Friday. Today we are recreating our first nail art. I chose the nail art I did for the very first Fancy Friday many many Fridays ago. I updated it a little bit, and I think it turned out so good.

Here is the original manicure, and just click here, to be taken to the original blogpost.

I have two coats of China Glaze First Mate on my index and pinky, and two studs. I switched the sides I placed them on. On my middle I have three coats of Barry M Sky Blue, because I destashed the Essence polish I used. Instead of the rhinestones I did a little stamping using MoYou London Pro XL14 and MoYou London White Knight. On my ring finger I have three coats of Kiko 294 Indigo and some round blue iridescent glequins from BornPrettyStore.

I dag skal vi genskabe vores første nail art. Jeg har genskabt den første Fælles Fredag manicure jeg lavede, dog opdaterede jeg den lidt, med noget stamping i stedet for de rhinsten jeg havde på en af neglene.

Fancy Friday #151 – Water decals

So today’s theme is actually “something different”. I have never used water decals, so that was something different for me. I had some really cute ones with flowers on them, that I decided to use.

I started with three coats of Different Dimension Tulips Are Better Than One. It is a really pretty multi-chrome aqua, purple, pink polish. It is a little sheer but builds up nicely. The water decals are from Born Pretty Store. I started with two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme as the base, since the background of the water decals was white. They were a bit too slim for my nails, but it is not too obvious.

For my pinky I also did two coats of the white Wet n Wild polish, and topped it with a square and round pastel purple stud, also from Born Pretty Store. I really like the water decals, they were super easy to use, I just wish that they were a bit wider, because the length was fine on them.

Here you can see a little bit more of the multi-chrome polish, but pictures does not do this polish justice. We are having an issue with the Inlinkz, but as soon as it is working again, I’ll update the post with the link.

I dag er temaet “noget anderledes”. Jeg har aldrig brugt water decals før, så det måtte jeg prøve i dag. Det var dejlig nemt og ligetil, så jeg skal helt sikkert have nogle flere slags.

#WeekendOffNailArtChallenge – Day 14 Gradient

Today’s theme is gradient. A couple of months ago I saw a video by PackaPunchPolish on YouTube, with a water marble and gradient. I loved the look and saved it in my inspiration folder on my computer. So when I saw today’s theme I immediately knew what I was going to do.

VDSC_0775

I started with two coats of OPI Alpine Snow and after letting it dry completely I put a piece of tape over half on my ring and pinky nail. I applied a liquid latex barrier around my nails, to help with clean up. I then sponged out 4 coats of China Glaze Feel The Breeze and Peonies and Park Ave.

I removed the tape to expose the white half of the nail, and then applied round silver studs from BornPrettyStore down the center of my ring and pinky fingers. On the remaining nails where I did a full gradient I stamped on flamingos with MoYou London Tropical 05 and Depend White stamping polish. The look is super summery and makes my skin look really tan despite me not being in the sun since August.

OhMyGoshPolish on YouTube loves doing nail art with neons and then filming them under black light, so I pulled out my LED light and took some photos under the light. I think they look so cool glowing.

Bonus shot of my thumb. The flamingos look almost purple here and the darker pink really glows under black light. I will definitely remember to check my nails under a black light when using neons.

#WeekendOffNailArtChallenge – Day 8 Green

Today’s theme is green. I was partly inspired for this manicure by the name of the polish I chose to use.

VDSC_0684

I decided to use Picture Polish Honeymoon by Manicurator. At first I wanted to do chevrons on all of my nails, but then I was inspired by the name to also incorporate something wedding-y. For the negative space single chevron on my ring and thumb I used NailVinyls and three coats of Honeymoon. I added studs from BornPrettyStore. On the rest of my fingers I also did three coats of Honeymoon and then stamped with MoYou London Bridal 07 and Depend White Stamping polish.

VDSC_0694

Honeymoon is a really pretty minty green polish with blue/pink shimmer and scattered holographic bits. I really like this polish and the contrast between the studs and the lace stamp was fun.

Fancy Friday #28 – Studs

Todays theme is studs. I only have one kinds of studs round 2mm ones in silver from Born Pretty Store. I have more on my wishlist, some gold round, square and candy colored ones.

VDSC_1422

I used two coats of OPI DS Lapis on my fingers except the ring finger. Lapis covered in one coat but I did two just to be sure. It dried super fast, when I was done with the pinky on my left hand, the thumb had dried. It dried matte with a slightly gritty finish. It’s super sparkly. On my ring finger I did two coats of Rimmel Blue Vouge, a midnight blue shimmer. The shimmer is unfortunately lost on the nail. It covered in two coats.

VDSC_1455

Using a dotting tool I placed topcoat on the nail and then studs and bullions (caviar pearls) alternating around the outline of the nail. I finished with a coat of thick topcoat Gelous and a Cult Nails Wicked Fast. The studs and bullions stayed on for 4 days without falling off. It looked super pretty and sparkly.

I dag var temaet studs, jeg brugte en kombination af studs og caviar perler som blev sat fast i topcoat. For at se hvad de andre har fundet på, skal du bare klikke på den blå blob i bunden.

Fancy Friday #1 – Blue Me Away

Hello again

First I want to apologize for the very long hiatus. It’s was not planned, but sort of just happened. After I started at the university I didn’t have much time and had to get used to the new environment. Things have started to settle down and I missed blogging, so now I’m back again.

To get back in the swing of things and to push my self a little bit, I joined a challenge or collaboration with a some other Danish nail bloggers. So every Friday I’m doing Fancy Friday. The first challenge is Blue Me Away.

I wanted to do something with studs and rhinestones, so I did a skittelette manicure, inspired by Martha from ChitChatNails. She actually invented this kind of manicure, with two accent nails.

Image

I used Kiko 294 Indigo, China Glaze First Mate, Essence Fall For Me and Cult Nails Wicked Fast for the polishes. I then used little round silver studs from Born Pretty Store, square rhinestones from Cult Nails and Born Pretty Store, glequins in Marine from Recollections from Michael’s and finally a dotting tool also from Born Pretty Store.

I used First Mate on my index and pinky together with two studs on each finger. On my middle finger I used Fall For Me with a blue rhinestone ombre. On my ring finger I used Indigo topped with a full glitter nail of the glequins by placing them individually with the dotting tool.

I really loved this look and it was so fun to do. I hope you like it too. I hope you will check out what the other ladies have been up to by clicking on the little blue blob in the bottom. Some of them are going to be in Danish, but there will still be lots of pictures to look at 🙂

Dansk oversættelse: Denne uges udfordring var Blåt er Godt, så jeg valgte at lave en skittlette manicure med studs, rhinsten og glitter. Det var virkelig sjovt og jeg blev virkelig glad for denne manicure.
