NOTD – Sally Hansen Pacific Blue + studs

Hej alle sammen.

Det er godt nok noget tid siden. Jeg har været så uheldig, at falde ind i noget sygdom, så jeg har slet ikke haft kræfter til at gøre noget ved mine negle, eller blogge for den sags skyld.
Nu er jeg endelig ved at have det bedre, og fik for et par dage siden lavet denne simple mani som jeg er helt vild med.
Jeg ville gerne bruge Sally Hansens Pacific Blue, fordi den bliver lavet om, og mange er rigtig sure over det. Jeg har haft PB i skuffen i lang tid men har ikke brugt den før nu. Jeg kan bestemt godt forstå, hvorfor folk er sure over, at den bliver lavet om. Det er en rigtig lækker lak.
Her har jeg to lag på, og har tilføjet nogle neon studs, som jeg synes gør denne mani virkelig cool.

Hello everyone.

It’s been quite a while. I’ve been so unlucky to run into some sickness, so I haven’t had the strength to do anything to my nails, og even do blogposts.
I’m finally getting better, and some days ago I did this simple mani, that I really like.
I wanted to use Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, because it’s being reformulated, and many people are sad about this. I’ve had PB in my drawer for a long time, but haven’t used it until now. I definitely understand why many people are upset about this being reformulated. It’s a gorgeous polish.
Here I have on two layers, and I added some neon studs, that I think makes this mani really cool.

NOTD – Klokkeblomst/Tinkerbell

Så fik jeg endelig lavet nogle Klokkeblomst negle. Jeg har ville lave Klokkeblomst negle længe, for jeg blev så inspireret af den bog min mor købte for noget tid siden. Det er en af de fineste bøger.
Jeg har valgt at lave en simpel base og en holografisk glitter gradient, og kun have Klokke på en finger. Jeg gjorde mig egentlig ikke vild umage med hende, for jeg ville gerne have, at hun havde det der lidt “sketch”-agtige look som uden på bogen.
Jeg synes det blev Super fint. Selvom jeg var rigtig glad for det i sort hvid(/sort/mint) så ville jeg lige se, hvordan hun så ud i farve. Så det blev til en lidt glamourøs version af Kokkeblomst, med sølv-øjenskygge :D
(Hendes mund blev ikke god, da jeg kom til at male over den. Ups.)

Min base er Illamasqua Milf. Glitter gradienten er lavet med China Glaze Fairy dust(fordi, selvfølgelig!), China Glaze Glistening snow og IsaDora nail gitter i holografisk sølv.
__________________________
I finally got around to doing Tinkerbell nails. I have been wantng to do them for a while, cause I got so inspiret by a book my mom got some tie ago. It’s just the prettiest book.
I chose to do a simpel base with a holographic glitter gradient, and I only did Tink on one nail. I actually didnt bother too much about maing her perfect, cause I wanted her to have that “sketchy”look like on the book.
I think it’s super pretty. And while I did like it in black and white (or black/mint) I wanted to see her in color. She turned out to be a very glamourous version of Tinkerbell, with silver holographic eyeshadow.
(The mouth didn’t turn out good, cause I painted over it. Oops!)

My base is Illamasqua Milf. The glitter gradient consists of China Glaze Fairy dust (because of course!), China Glaze Glistening snow and IsaDora Nail glitter in holographic silver.

OPI Life gave me lemons

Da jeg var i Helsingborg her i sidste weekend, faldt jeg over OPI’s neon kollektion. Jeg kunne simpelthen ikke stå for farverne efter at have set dem i virkeligheden (selvom jeg synes det er latterligt, at det hedder en “neon” kollektion, da mange af farverne ikke er neon) Jeg var simpelthen nødt til at have Life gave me lemons og You are so outta lime, da jeg ikke har noget i min kollektion der minder om disse.

Jeg prøvede selvfølgelig straks Life gave me lemons, og det er allerede en af mine nye yndlings lakker. Farven er en god blanding af grøn og gul, og den er samtidig ret neon, uden rigtig at være neon, hvis I kan forstå hvad jeg mener :)
Jeg kunne selvfølgelig ikke fange farven ordentligt, men jeg vil vise billeder alligevel, og jeg synes de blev gode :D
Forestil jer lakken mørkere og mere neon. Dette er en musthave her til sommer! Fantastisk farve.
Her har jeg tre lag på. Rigtig god konsistens!
________________________________
When I went to Helsingborg last weekend, I found OPI’s neon collection. I couldn’t walk by those colors after seeing them in real life. (I do think its a bit ridiculous that it’s a “neon” collection, when they aren’t really neon) I just had to get Life gave me lemons and You are so outta lime, cause I don’t have anything in my collection like them.

Of course I tried Life gave me lemons right away, and it’s already one of my favorite polishes. The color is a nice mix of yellow and green, and it’s pretty neon without actually being really neon, if you get what I mean :)
Of course I couldn’t catch the right color, but I want to show you the pictures anyway, cause they are pretty :D
Imagine this darker and more neon. This is a must have polish for the summer! Fantastic color.
Here I have on three layers. The consistency was really nice!

Ciaté Beach House Collection – French mani

For noget tid siden fik jeg denne fine nye kollektion fra Ciaté ind af døren. Dette er deres Beach House collection som består af fem fine mini-lakker. De kommer i en fin lille strand-hytte, og det alene er en grund til at købe dette sæt. Jeg kan i hvert fald ikke stå for sådan en indpakning. (Så vidt jeg kan se, er der to versioner af denne kollektion, men jeg kan ikke lige finde ud af om de har forskellige navne)

Det lille hus består af lakkerne, Pepperminty, Knickerbocker Glory, Hopscotch, Amazing Gracie og party shoes.
Alle farverne er bare suer fine og perfekte til sommeren. Jeg er især vild med den orange, Hopscotch og Pepperminty (som jeg tilfældigvis har i stor størrelse. Det er en af mine yndlings mint lakker)

Her har jeg valgt at vise farverne i en fransk manicure. Basen er tre lag af den nude lak Amazing Gracie. Til den franske kant har jeg brugt alle farverne fra sættet (Den gule er Ciaté Loop the loop, og den er ikke inkluderet i sættet)
Jeg har også tilføjet et lag af den fine glitter top coat. Synes den er super fin. Den får manicuren til at minde mig om slik! :)
________________________
Some time ago I got this cute collection from Ciaté. This is their Beach House collection, and it consits of five mini nail polishes. The polishes comes in this cute little Beach house, and the packagging alone is reason enough to buy this. I can’t resist packeging like this. (As far as I can see there is two versions of this set. I can’t tell if they have different names though)

The little house consits of the polishes Pepperminty, Knickerbocker Glory, Hopscotch, Amazing Gracie and party shoes.
All of them are really pretty colors, perfect for the summer. I really like the orange Hopscotch, and Pepperminty (which I own in a big bottle. It’s one of my favorite mint polishes)

Here I chose to do a french mani. The base is three layers of the nude Amazing Gracie. For the french tips I used all the colors from the set (The yellow is Ciaté Loop the loop, and is not included in the set)
I also added a layer of the pretty glitter top coat. It’s really pretty. It makes me think of candy! :)

NOTD – The fault in our stars

I dag vil jeg vise jeg mine første “portræt” negle. Jeg har længe gået og sagt, at eg gerne ville lave flotte realistiske ansigter, men det bliver man jo ikke god til, med mindre an faktisk begynder på det, og øver sig.

Forleden viste jeg ikke hvad jeg skulle lave på mine negle, men havde gået og tænkt, at jeg gerne ville lave The fault in our stars negle. Jeg ville dog ikke lave de klassiske som er set så mange gange før, så jeg besluttede mig simpelthen for, at lave hovedpersonernes ansigter som set fra filmens plakat (og soundtracket, som jeg er helt vild med!)

Som sagt, er dette mine første rigtige realistiske portrætter, og hold da op hvor er jeg stolt af disse. Jeg synes især, at Shailene ligner ret godt. Ansel ligner også en smule synes jeg, og jeg er især vild med shadingen på ham. Og læberne, som ellers voldte mig en del problemer.
På mine tre andre negle har jeg valgt at skrive titlen på bogen/filmen, og nogle citater.

Jeg elsker disse negle. Bare jeg havde lavet dem til når jeg skal ind og se filmen!
______________________________
Today I want to show you my first ”portrait” nails. For a long time I’ve been wanting to make pretty realistic faces, but you won’t get good, unless you actually start doing it and practice.

The other day I didn’t know what to do on my nails, but I had been thinking about douing The fault in our stars nails. I just didn’t want to the the classic Tfios nails, that have been seen so many times, so I decided to make the main characters faces as seen on the ovie poster (and the soundtrack, wgich I absolutely love btw!)

As said, this is my first real realistic portraits, and I am so proud of these. I especially think Shailene looks pretty good. Ansel is also great I think, and I especially love the shading on him. And the lips, which I had a lot of trouble with.
On my other three nails I wrote the title of the book/movie and some quotes.

I love these nails. If only I had made them when I’m going to see the movie!

Nail art May #15 – Aztec (A little experiment)

På Instagram postede jeg et sort/hvidt billede af disse negle med teksten “eksperiment”. For der er nemlig hvad disse negle var, et eksperiment. Det var udfaldet af leg og kreativitet.
Jeg havde besluttet mig at lave aztec print oven på min gradient, men havde forinden taget mat top coat på (fordi jeg også ville have et billede af gradienten med mat top coat), men den havde ødelagt lakken lidt i siderne, så jeg tænkte, at aztec printet måtte komme på en anden base. I stedet besluttede jeg mig for at lege med akrylmaling. Jeg fandt dog hurtigt ud af, at mat top coat ikke er glad for akrylmaling, for jeg kunne simpelthen ikke fjerne det hvis jeg havde lavet fejl. Det synes jeg egentlig var en ret sjov udfordring.
jeg er utrolig perfektionistisk når det kommer til mine negle, og især når det gælder mine tribal designs, vil jeg gerne have, at linjerne er så rette som de kan blive. Her var det ikke en mulighed, da jeg ikke kunne slette fejl (som jeg ellers kan, når jeg arbejder på en glossy top coat)
Desuden synes jeg dette var en sjov måde at lade kreativiteten flyde. Jeg har normalt skitser eller billeder af det jeg gerne vil lave, men her kom det bare mens jeg lavede det. Den ene streg efter den anden, prik efter prik. Det var faktisk utrolig sjovt at lave, netop fordi der ikke gik perfektion i det, det var mere leg. Misforstå mig nu ikke, jeg elsker at sidde i timevis og lave et design helt perfekt ned til mindste detalje, men dette var altså virkelig noget af en anderledes oplevelse. Og så synes jeg heller ikke, at resultatet blev helt værst. Jeg kan rigtig godt lide det, og det er altså ret vildt, når man tænker på, at linjerne ikke er helt perfekte, og designet er lavet på ca. en halv time.

Jeg udfordrer Jer til at gøre dette. Lav et hurtigt design, ingen rettelser og helt ud af hovedet.
______________________
On Instagram I posted a black/white picture of these nails with the text “experiment”. Because that’s exactly what it was, an experiment. This is the outcome of play and creativity.
I had decided to make aztec nails on my gradient, but before that, I added a layer of matte top coat(because I wanted a picture of the gradient with matte top coat also), but it had ruined the polish a bit on the sides, so I thought I might do the aztec nails on another base. I then decided to play around with my acrylic paint, only to quickly discover, that acrylic paint and matte top coat are not happy with one another, cause I simply couldn’t remove the paint again if I had made mistakes. I actually thought that was quite a fun challenge.
I am truly a perfectionist when it comes to my nails, and especially when it comes to my tribal nails, I want the lines to be as straight as possible. That was not an option here, as I could not delete if I made mistakes (which I usually can If I’m using a glossy top coat)
Besides, I thought this was a fun way to let the creativity flow. I usually have sketches or pictures to look at, but here it just came while I was doing it. One line after the other, ot after dot. It was actually really fun to do because it wasn’t about perfecting, it was more about playing. Now, don’t misunderstand me, I love to sit and perfect for hours and make everything perfect to the last detail, but this was just such a different experience. And I don’t think the result came out bad. I acturlly really like it, and that’s pretty fun, since the lines are not completely straight and the design has been made in about half an hour.

I challenge you guys to do the same. Make a quick mani, no deleting or erasing, and completely out of your head.

Nail art May #12 – Sunset

Dag 12 af nail art May var sunset. Jeg har valgt at lave en simpel gradient, og altså ikke noget vildt nail art.
Jeg er totalt vild med denne gradient. Farverne er så fede sammen! (desværre fik jeg nogle dumme billeder synes jeg. Det var meget flottere i virkeligheden!)

Jeg har brugt: Dance Legend 322(som base), Dance Legend 303, China Glaze Papaya Punch, Nilens Jord 697, China Glaze Fade into hue og China Glaze Fancy Pants.

Day 12 of Nail art May was sunset. I chose to do a simple gradient, and not any crazy nail art.
I am totally crazy about this gradient. The colors are just so cool together!(Unfortunately I got some not so good picutures. It was much prettier in real life!)

Nail art May #8 – Mothers day

Okay, jeg ved, at jeg er totalt bagud i denne maj challenge, men jeg har bare ikke haft tid.
Anyways, dag 8 var mors dag, og jeg lavede disse lige i sidste øjeblik på mors dag. Herhjemme fejrer vi ikke mors dag som sådan, men siden dette var en challenge, tænkte jeg, at jeg ville lave disse negle som en gave til min mor. Så jeg valgte at lave nogle blomsternegle. Jeg ved, at hun elsker syrener, så det har jeg lavet. De blev super fine synes jeg. De var super nemme at lave, så engang når jeg får tid, laver jeg en tutorial.
Desværre har det været så dårligt vejr, så har ikke kunne få ordentlige billeder. Desuden, pga. min praktik i en skovbørnehave, så har de ikke haft det så godt. Jeg har prøvet at lappe dem lidt.

Min base er Dance Legend 322 (Min absolutte nye yndlings hvide. Rigtig fin mælkehvid!)
________________________________
Okay, I know I am totally behind in this May challenge, but I just haven’t had time.
Anyways, day 8 was mother’s day, and I made these in the very last minute on mother’s day. We don’t really celebrate mother’s day here at home, but this was a challenge, and I wanted to make this as a gift for my mother. I chose to do some flower nails. I know she loves lilacs, so that’s what I made. I really like this mani. It was super easy to make, so when I have the time one day, I will make a tutorial.
Unfortunately the weather had been really bad, so I couldn’t take better pics. Also, because of my internship in a daycare, the mani hasen’t been doing too well. I tried to patch it a bit though.

The base is Dance Legend 322 (my absolute new favorite white. Really nice milky white!)

Nail art May – Star Wars

Dag 4 i maj’s nail art challenge er Star Wars, og det var bestemt en udfordring. Jeg har aldrig i mit liv set Star Wars. Det er egentlig mærkeligt, men sci fi har aldrig sagt mig meget. Jeg er mere til fantasy. På en eller anden måde er der bare forskel på de to genrer, og sci fi har bare aldrig rigtig været mig.
Men jeg måtte jo lave noget, så til denne mani har jeg lavet to lyssværd og skrevet star wars. Min base er en gradient af Dance Legend lakker. Jeg viser et billede af den gradient en anden dag.

Det er mærkeligt nok, nu hvor jeg aldrig har set Star Wars, men jeg er helt wild med denne mani!
______________________
Day 4 in May’s nail art challenge is Star Wars, and it was definitely a challenge. I have never in my life seen Star Wars. It’s weird, but sci fi has never really been my thing. I love fantasy though. in some way there’s just a difference in those two genres, and Sci fi has never been my cup of tea.
But I had to make something, so for this mani I did two lightsabers and wrote Star Wars. My base is a gradient of Dance Legend polishes, and I will show that gradient another day.

It’s weird, not having seen Star Wars, but I really love this mani!

I took a flash picture as well toay, cause it makes the base look amazing!
