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 #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 #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.

Remember to click by the other ladies, who have been more creative than me today.

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 #116 – Festival

So today we are inspired by festivals. I have never been to one, the whole idea does not attract me. If I was going I would definitely go to Coachella, just because the weather is great and the festival seems really clean and the music is more me. When I think of festivals I think tie die or gradients with tribal prints and metallic tattoos.


I was inspired by a manicure done by @badgirlnails on Instagram so I recreated that on my thumb, middle and ring finger nails. I started with two coats of China Glaze Highlight of My Summer and then did the gradient with the China Glaze, Mesauda Aquamarine, Appeal4 Hopley’s Hope and China Glaze Plur-ple. I then painted the Aztec print with a striper brush, a small detail brush and black acrylic paint.


For the nails with the metallic tattoo, I just cut out the tattoo, removed the clear film and applied it with the pattern face down on the nail. I then wet a cotton swab with water and pressed the water on the decal until it came off the white backing paper. I sealed everything in with a topcoat.


I really liked how the gradient turned out, the colors flowed smoothly into each other. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they came up with for today’s theme.

I dag er vi inspireret af festivals. Jeg har aldrig været på en festival og har hellere ikke lyst til det, det skulle da lige være Coachella der ser rigtig hyggelig og ren ud. Når jeg tænker festival tænker jeg gradient, Aztec/tribal print og metalliske tattoos så jeg overførte jeg til neglene. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har lavet til i dag. 


Fancy Friday #113 – Sand and Water

We are continuing along the road of summer inspired nail art, today with nail art inspired by sand and/or water. The moment I saw this theme I knew what I was doing. Every since I saw Sarah from Chalkboard Nails Beauty and Beach Summer Nail art I have wanted to recreate it and today was the perfect occasion.


I started with a coat of OPI Alpine Snow on my thumb, ring and pinky. I then sponged on three coats of OPI Alpine Snow and Mesauda 81 Aquamarine. I then painted on the squiggly lines for the water reflection with Stripe Rite in white.


For the sand nails I started with three coats of Sally Hansen Malt. For the sand effect I mixed Malt with white and black and dotted them on with a small nail art brush. I decided not to add the starfish from Sarah’s nails because I liked the clean look of just the sand. Remember to check out the other girls by clicking on the frog.


Fancy Friday #110 – Childhood Memory

So I was a bit stumped for ideas for today, but then I remembered that used to blow dandelion seeds and pick daisies from the grass and put them in little vases in the house.


I started with three coats of Essie Blossom Dandy on all of my fingers. Then I stamped the dandelion seeds on my index finger from the MoYou London Pro 06XL plate. The daisies are free-handed using a small detail brush and OPI Alpine Snow for the leaves and China Glaze Happy Go Lucky for the centers.


I stamped the dandelion flowers with MoYou London Pro 06XL and Mundo de Unas Black. I’m really happy with how great the stamp transferred. You can see all the little details.


Bonus picture with the little daisy flowers in my lawn. I love the little white flowers, they remind me of spring and summer, and they also look cute in a headband or in a little vase. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet barndoms minde. Jeg var lidt tom for ideer indtil jeg kom til at tænkte på hvordan jeg blæste mælkebøttefrø og plukkede bellis i græsplænen. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på. 


Fancy Friday #76 – International Cake Decoration Day

I’m a huge cake fan. Well I’m actually a huge fan of anything sweet, except cake with fruit in it, although I don’t mind banana or certain berries. Give my something with chocolate and I’m happy. I also love baking and decorating, so today was right up my alley. I planned to do one stroke flowers, but half of the time they didn’t look good when I practiced, so instead I went to Carlos Bakery’s website, since I’m also a huge fan of Cake Boss.















I looked through the gallery, and came across this cake with leopard spots, glitter and bows, and thought it was just perfect and would look super cute as nail art. Also it has been over a year since I have done a leopard print on my nails.


I started out with two coats of Essie Mint Candy Apple, for the base of the cake. Then I did the spots in Kiko Light Misty Green with a dotting tool, and outlined the spots with OPI Black Onyx using a small nail art brush. For the glitter accent I used three coats of Gosh Frosted Silver, and did the bow again using Black Onyx and the small brush. I finished off all the nails with a coat of Poshe topcoat.


This mani is so cute, and really reminded me that I should do leopard spots more often, because they are so easy, but look really cool. This challenge, really made me want to bake a batch of fudge brownies, so I think that is going to happen tomorrow. I know there are some of the girls who did cupcakes this week, so click on the blue blob to see that.

I dag er det international kage dekorations dag, og det fejre vi også i Fælles Fredag. Jeg elsker at bage og spise kage, så jeg kiggede forbi Carlos Bakery’s hjemmeside og fandt en rigtig flot kage med leopard prikker, glimmer og sløjfer.
