Fancy Friday #94: Foil

I had some nail art foil lying around and decided to use it on top of my Color Club foil polishes...I am not quite sure about these:

It was my first attempt using nail foil - I am a bit meh about it now that I think about it...

Remember to check out the other Fancy Friday girls and see what they have come up with :).

Neglefolie - mit første forsøg. Havde nogle små ark liggende og brugte dem ovenpå to af mine Color Club foil lakker. Ved ikke helt om jeg synes om det...

Husk at checke de andre Fælles Fredag piger og deres foliemanier :)

Fancy Friday #93: Multi Colour Stamping

I am finally back after life threw me a curve ball. Blogging about nail polish and nail polish challenges has had to take third place for a while, but I have been polishing my nails so there are plenty of manis to share with you in the near future :D. And my return is also a small celebration worthy since this is actually my post no. 300!!

Multi Colour Stamping is the challenge for this week's Fancy Friday - and a stamping technique I've become quite thrilled with.

Unfortunately this particular mani is one of those that worked so much better in my mind's eye - I think I should have used a dark base colour instead.

Base colour is Elevation Polish Yeti Hugs Feels So Close:

I used Messy Mansion plate 32 which is an egyptian themed plate and has a design I have wanted to use since I purchased it. I used my Rica stamping polishes and started with randomly placing blobs of each colour on the image.

I did my middle nail first, but made the mistake of trying to blend the colours together while I was scraping. That certainly didn't have the desired effect and instead of a wonderful rainbow they turned into this murky sort of berry colour that wasn't even exciting.

So for the rest I tried to simply wipe my scraper over the image in one go. That had an equally problemtic effect - a lot of the design became almost invisible when stamped on white, as you can see it is really hard to see the intricate design.

Hopefully I will have time soon to recreate this with a darker base colour :).

Remember to check the rest of the Fancy Friday bloggers, there are some fantastic multi colour stamping manicures going on!!!

Så er jeg her endelig igen, livet har været rigtig meget i vejen for blogning om neglelak og lakudfordringer, men forhåbentlig er jeg tilbage for fuld styrke i løbet af de næste fjorten dage. Og så er det her altså mit indlæg nummer 300!!!! Og med en af mine nye favoritter når det kommer til stamping: Flerfarvet stamping. Desværre er det slet ikke tæt på det jeg så for mig, da jeg udtænkte det her design, men sådan er det jo en gang i mellem :D

Husk at checke de andre piger ud, for det er virkelig nogle helt fantastiske flerfarvede stamping manier!!!

From the Vault: Girly Bits Gloss48 Trio swatches

I've been crappily sick today and ideas for my Fancy Friday manicure for this week are seemingly lost in my sickness - so while I am feeling awful I thought I might as well write up a post on a manicure that has been hiding in the vault for the better part of nine months :D

I was so very fortunate to get a hold of a very limited trio of polishes that the wonderful Pam Heil from Girly Bits Cosmetics did for a Gloss48 promo last February, #endlesslove, #islandtime and #blingernails.

#endlesslove on my thumb, index and pinkie. #islandtime on my middle and ring.

I was on a train ride to a family get-together wearing this mani in May last year.  The sun was shining through the windows and I was blinded by my own nails :D

#endlesslove and #islandtime topped with #blingernails equals gorgeous nails!!

Fancy Friday #87: One Colour - Three Shades

My colour choice is purple - and I have three purple KIKO polishes that I've been aching to try together :).

KIKO 315

KIKO 331

KIKO 291 leans more red in real life, you can see it in the pattern on my nail, but I had to choose between colour correct stamp or colour correct bottle since it was neigh impossible to get the bottle colour correct and not loose the colour of the stamp. So I chose the stamp instead of the bottle.

KIKO 291
I did multi colour stamping over white.

It looks a bit squished in some places but I really don't care, I think these colours go so well together that I can't seem to work up any regrets here :D

It's funny how you realise there are dust and other fun things on your fingers when you see your nails blown up like this but never when you take the actual pics ;).

En farve, tre nuancer var anden udfordring i 2015 (jaja, jeg er forsinket med at poste, men heldigvis har jeg billeder til alle, så det er bare med at få tid til at skrive :D), og jeg har valgt lilla. Kiko laver fantastiske lilla creme lakker som også er fabelagtige at stampe med og jeg har haft denne farvekombination på hjernen i flere uger!!!! Selvom det er lidt splattet nogle steder, synes jeg det fungerer vildt godt alligevel, så jeg var meget glad for resultatet.

Fancy Friday #86: NYE Nail Art

So life have gotten in the way for my blogging - and I have been neglecting posts of my Fancy Friday manis. So to start them off here are my FF NYE nails:

Yeah, shockingly I was nekkid for the celebration 'cause I had too much to do and very little time to anything nail related. Instead I did these a few days later - they were what I had planned for but never got to do...

I used OPI Push and Shove, Elevation Polish Silver Sword, Rapa Nui and Jbel Ajachi. Not the perfect NYE mani, but I really like it.

 Anyway - it matched our decorations in blue, silver and purple :D.

Hold da op hvor er livet kommet i vejen for mine Fælles Fredag indlæg. Her er mine nytårsnegle - ja, jeg var sgu nøgen nytårsaften ;), jeg havde slet ikke tid til at lave negle i de dage. Til gengæld fik jeg så lavet dem jeg havde planlagt et par dage senere.

13 Days of January Nail Art Challenge #4: Monochromatic

Whoah, life got in the way of my blogging...

One colour, several hues is what I best can describe this challenge as - and that made me do a sideways blue gradient.

Totally forgot to take a picture of the finished gradient before I stamped.

But this is the final result:

I used Elevation Alphubel, The Nail Junkie Bluebonnet and Darling Diva Blue Diamond

For the lace detail I used Messy Mansion plate 44 and used Rica Whiteout as stamping colour.

I hope you all liked this, I am actually quite pleased with it. I ambeginning to feel more confident doing nail art and have an increasing number of manis that I really like.

See you soon,

13 Days of January Nail Art Challenge #3: Half and Half

I wasn't too imaginative with this prompt, but never mind that - I really like how they turned out:

For once I don't mind the visible nail line, since it makes it more like my inspiration picture:

I used Catrice Twist of Lemon, The Nail Junkie Coffee and Elevation Polish Limestone for this mani.

My cuticles are in so much trouble due to the winter weather, so I really look forward to buy some more Bliss Kiss cuticle oil on Monday...

I'm quite chuffed with this it actually looked how I imagined it in my mind's eye.

See you soon,

13 Days of January Nail Art Challenge #2: Happiness

This was almost a no-brainer for me. My twin rascals make me happy, nail polish makes me happy. They love doing my nails. So they did mine tonight before they went to bed.

They chose their own colours and design, I did the base colour.

Silja chose to dot - these are lucky flowers:

Liv wanted to do something with a Christmas theme using red, white, black and green - so she made candy canes:

And here they are in a little collage - mama is really proud :D

Needless to say they were ecstatic about it, but also too tired to really admire their own work after they'd finished. I think they did great.

See you all soon,

P.S. Remember to browse through the other Happiness manis.

13 Days of January Nail Art Challenge #1: Follow a Tutorial

Happy New Year all!! And welcome to a new nail art challenge here on the blog. I've wanted to do some more nail art but I'm not ready for a full blown 31DC, so when a group of my blogger friends and I got together to think up a challenge, we opted for a modified version of The Crumpet's Nail Tarts 31 Day Challenge for January 2015 - naturally with Debbie's blessing ;).

I saw Jacki's Polar Bear nail art tutorial a couple of weeks ago and instantly knew I was going to use it for this challenge.

For my version of the polar bears I used:
Dior Porcelaine
Rica White Out
Rica Gloomy Sunday
Cult Nails Never More

The rest of my mani is the absolutely gorgeous Girly Bits Scandilous that Pam Heil created for the Scandinavian nail polish group on Facebook. The snow flakes are a total nail fail made with the equally gorgeous Girly Bits nail polish Bette Davis' Eyes. I chose not to top coat them since I liked the textured feeling I got this way, somehow it represents the more rough nature of Greenland and the North Pole.

I think the polar bears are really cute even though there are some minor details that I struggled a bit with - but overall I am quite ecstatic with this mani!!!

And here you can take a look at what's to come during January:

Have a lovely day,
