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 #139 – Christmas manicure 2015

Merry Christmas. I hope you had a good Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I spent yesterday eating dinner with my aunt, uncle, cousins, grandmother, mom, dad and little sister before opening presents. Today we have just lounged around the home in sweatpants and christmas sweaters. Today is optional, but since I did a christmas manicure I thought I would show it to you. I actually included my manicure from last year as well, since I didn’t show you that last year. I also found my christmas manicure from 2012 that I hadn’t shown, so it is almost like a trip down memory lane 🙂

VDSC_0109

This was some of my very first nail art. The base is Essie Bobbing for Baubles. On my index and pinky I have one coat of Ninja Polish The Midas Touch. The christmas tree on my ring finger is done with tape and Sally Hansen Gilty Pleasure and the star is from Wet n Wild Hollywood Walk of Fame. The snowflake is also done in Sally Hansen Gilty Pleasure and with a small nail art brush.

I was inspired for this by The Nail Network. I used three coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff. The red dots are China Glaze Cranberry Splash, the green is Sally Hansen Jumpin’ Jade and the gold is OPI Golden Eye.

This year I went for a red skittlette. I was a little bit inspired by Lucy’s Stash and the way she used Zoya Posh. I started with three coats of Zoya Posh on my thumb, index, middle and pinky. On ring finger I did three coats of OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby. I used the same OPI polish and MoYou London Festive 03 plate to stamp snowflakes on my thumb and middle finger nails. Zoya Posh dries matte, but I top-coated it to bring out the glowing shimmer.

Thank you for this year. My next manicure will be my New Years Eve manicure that will be up the first day of the new year. Happy Holidays 🙂

Årest sidste manicure er min jule manicure. Jeg fandt to andre jule manicures i mit arkiv jeg ikke havde lagt op her, så de kommer også med her i dag. Tak for i år, jeg håber i får nogle gode juledage med familie og venner.

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.

#WeekendOffNailArtChallenge – 27 Dragmarble

We are entering into the last four days of the challenge. Today’s theme is dragmarble. I’m not entirely happy about today’s outcome. I think my inspiration photo was much better and of course after doing the nails I had a ton of other ideas. Typical 🙂

VDSC_0942

I was inspired by a manicure by Simple Little Pleasures on YouTube. She did a fiery manicure inspired by Hunger Games. I first applied a thinner coat of OPI Alpine Snow and then did a thicker coat on nail at a time. I then dragged a toothpick with polish on through the wet polish with a light hand. I used OPI Jinx, Gosh Frosted Gold and Zoya Chyna.

VDSC_0951

I don’t know what it is with me and applying wet polish to wet polish, it looks so cool and simple when other people do it, but when I do it, it turns out so differently. I might try out some of my other ideas another time. My family all think my nails looked really cool, so it might just be me.

#WeekendOffNailArtChallenge – Day 15 Fan Brush

Today’s theme is fan brush. Something I never tried before, so today was the day.  I took a quick trip on google image search and looked at some different fan brush manicures, to get an idea of what you could do.

VDSC_0783

I started with three coats of Orly Au Champagne, a shimmering white satin finish polish. I was getting a bit tired of using OPI Alpine Snow, so something new needed to happen. I then dropped out some of Zoya Savita for the index and ring finger nail and brushed it on one side of the nail. On my middle and pinky nail I have Wet n Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer.

VDSC_0796

I when over the lines a couple of times to build up intensity in the polish. I don’t know what happened to the nails with the Wet n Wild polish but the top coat seemed to blur the lines, even though it didn’t drag the polish. So they look like they are out of focus, but that is the way the look in real life. The technique was super simple and I would definitely try it out again.

Fancy Friday #97 – Astronomy

Happy friday. I can’t believe it’s already March, where is time going? Today we are looking to the stars to get inspired, because todays theme is astronomy. I did galaxy nails with an accent nail on the thumb.

VDSC_0588

I was inspired by the purple galaxy nail art from Lucy’s Stash. I started with two coats of Zoya Payton. I then sponged on Revlon Passionate Pink in random patterns on the nail. I then sponged with OPI Alpine Snow, and OPI Honk If You Love OPI. I then sponged very little of China Glaze When Stars Collide on the edges and then dotted and drew stars with Alpine Snow. I finished with a coat of INM Northern Light top coat to add some more sparkle.

VDSC_0591

On my thumb I painted three coats of Emily de Molly Cosmic Forces. I then did dots in the pattern of the star constellation of the Leo which is my sign. I then added the lines between the stars. I finished with a coat of Seche Vite. I really love this nail art. Click on the blue blob to see the what the other ladies did, I know that there is a couple of galaxies and star constellations between 🙂

I dag er vi blevet inspireret af stjernerne og rummet, da temaet er astronomi. Jeg lavede galakse negle med en stjernebillede accent negl på tommelfingeren. Jeg valgte løve stjernebilledet, da det er mit tegn. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre har fundet på.

Fancy Friday #73 – Inspired by Fall

I love those beginning stages of Fall, when you can smell the cold in the air, but it’s still warm enough to wear a leather jacket and sneakers. When the leaves are starting to change and the sun is still warm. When the leaves are all gone and it’s so cold you can see your own breath, then I wish for Spring and Summer to come back 🙂 This year I was inspired by the leaves and the trees and the pretty colors.

VDSC_0153

I started out with three coats of Zoya Blaze, a super pretty deep red scattered holographic jelly polish (that was a mouthful). The I looked at my stamping plates to find something Fall like. I found this super pretty stamp with maple leaves on it on my Bundle Monster H11 plate. I used three different polishes for the stamp. On my pinky I stamped with Orly Solid Gold, on my ring and index finger with Sally Hansen Liquid Gold and on my middle finger with a-England Excalibur.

VDSC_0165

Here you can see the a-England shade better, it gets a little washed out in direct lightning, but indoors and in the shade, it looks really pretty with the silver and gold. The Sally Hansen shade stamped really well, but chrome and metallic polishes usually do. Click on the blue blob to see what the other ladies have done today.

I dag bliver vi inspireret af efteråret, som ikke rigtig er kommet til Danmark endnu. Jeg stampede nogle fine blade på en rød baggrund. Klik på den blå blob for at se hvad de andre har fundet på i dag.
