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 #136 – Elfs

Happy friday and happy december. All of the Fancy Friday post in December will have a christmas theme. The first theme is elfs, and I immediately thought of the christmas movie Elf, so that became my inspiration for today.

VDSC_1815

I started out with two coats of China Glaze Take A Hike on my index and pinky, and two coats of Zoya Chita on my thumb and middle nails. On my ring finger I started with two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme, before doing the rest of the nail art with acrylic paint. I began with the yellow stockings, before finishing off the black elf shoes and the green jacket.

You only get one photo today, because the early nightfall is starting the bug me, so most of the photos came out a little blurry. I really hate the it starts getting dark so early, but soon it is changing again and getting lighter. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they came up with for today.

Fancy Friday #119 – Rainbow

Happy Friday. Today is my birthday, I’m turning 22, and what better way to celebrate that with a little rainbow skittle on the nails. This manicure was completely copied from Sarah from Chalkboard Nails and her Rainbow Leopard Skittles, from the design to the nail polish colors, so all credit goes to her 🙂

VDSC_1385

I started with three coats of each of the neon shimmers from China Glaze. On my index I have I’m With the Lifeguard, on my middle nail I have Sun-Kissed, the ring finger is Orange You Hot? and the pinky is Surfin’ For Boys, these colors are super fun and bright. I then added the leopard print with a dotting tool for the white part which is OPI Alpine Snow and a small detail brush for the black outline which is OPI Black Onyx.

To complete the rainbow I have Splish Splash also from China Glaze. This manicure was super easy and quick to do, and you could vary the base colors for different results. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they have come up with for today.

Fancy Friday #118 – Inspired by a summer memory

So I’m back from vacation. It was two great and very hot weeks. I would not call the current Danish weather summer. It’s cloudy, windy and rainy most of the time, so it feels more like a fall day than the end of July. Hopefully the summer returns next week. I was inspired by a picture I took of a sunset in Florida back in 2009.

Sunset_Florida2_0001

I just love the way the sunset colors blend together with the tiny hint of purple skies and the completely black palm trees in the front.

VDSC_1379

I started with two coats of China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, and then applied liquid latex around the nail to help with the clean up after the gradient. I did three coats of the gradient using OPI Live.Love.Carnaval closest to the cuticle, OPI Toucan Do It If You Try in the middle and the China Glaze at the tip.

VDSC_1381

After the base was dry I used a striping brush and black acrylic paint to paint the palm trees. I painted a stripe for the base, and four stripes for the base of the leaves. I then added tiny stripes to form the leaves. After the paint was dry I finished off with a coat of Poshe top coat. Remember to check out the other ladies by clicking on the blue frog.

I dag er vi inspireret af sommer og sol eller et sommer minde. Jeg valgte det sidste, men billedet er taget på en sommerferie og der er en sol på. En fin solnedgangs gradient med sorte palmer. Husk at klikke forbi for at se hvad de andre har lavet til i dag.

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.

VDSC_1199

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.

VDSC_1204

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 #109 – Recreate a YouTube tutorial

Happy friday. I had some busy days, and that affected my index nail, so the corner broke of twice, so annoying. Today we are recreating a YouTube tutorial. choose these pretty flowers by PackaPunchPolish.

VDSC_1190

I started with two coats of Barry M Pit Stop as the base. I then painted five petal flowers using Barry M Kiwi (bright green), Revlon Passionate Pink (pink), China Glaze Happy Go Lucky (yellow), Essie e-nuf is e-nuf (red) and OPI That’s Hula-rious (mint green) with a small detail brush. I then added three dots in the center of each flower using the same brush and OPI Black Onyx. I finished off with a coat of Seche Vite.

#WeekendOffNailArtChallenge – Day 28 Saran wrap

Today’s theme is saran wrap. I really like the effect saran wrap gives. I have previously done a post using saran wrap in three different ways. My favorite way is dipping the saran wrap in polish and then sponging it on the nail. That way you can layer your colors.

VDSC_0962

I started with two coats of Alpine Snow. After letting it dry at crumbled up a piece of saran wrap and sponged on Revlon Lemon Meringue. I then went in with Cult Nails Feelin’ Froggy, Cult Nails Nakizzle Shizzle, Appeal4 Lavender Daffodil and finally Appeal4 Queen’s Lace. I let each round of polish dry before going in with the next color. I varied where on the nail I sponged on each color so no two nails turned out the same. I then went back in with some of the colors depending on what I felt like the nail needed.

VDSC_0969

I then used MoYou London Pro 06XL and Mundo de Uñas Black to stamp with. I  think this nail art is one of my favorites I have done for this challenge. The saran wrap ended up looking almost like watercolor and the different colors blended well into each other. I may try it again with the same color scheme but stamping with a white polish instead, just to see how that turns out.
