Nail Art March 17 – St. Patty’s

Så blev det tid til dag 17 i Nail art March hvor temaet er St. Patty’s, altså Saint Patricks day.
Jeg har faktisk aldrig lavet en St. Patricks day mani før, så det var rigtig sjovt at finde på.
Jeg har valgt at lave to leprechauns, en af dem med googely eyes, forde det var noget tid siden jeg havde brugt dem, og jeg synes de er så sjove.
På mine tommelfingre har jeg laver regnbue gradients og tilføjet et lag YSL Feuille D’or, som jeg også har tilføjet på mine grønne negle hvor basen er Essie Pretty Edgy.

Jeg synes det er blevet nogle fine negle. Jeg ville egentlig også have lavet noget på de grønne negle, men jeg kynne simpelthen ikke finde ud af at lave noget.

Now it’s time for day 17 in Nail art March where the theme is St. Patty’s, Saint Patricks day.
I actually never made a St. Patricks day mani, so it was really fun to come up with ideas.
I chose to do two leprechauns, one of them with googely eyes, cause it’s had been some time since I used those, and I think they are so fun!
On my thumbs I made rainbow gradients, and added a layer of YSL Feuille D’or. I also Added Feuille D’or on my green nails, where the base is Essie Pretty Edgy.

(Hopefully I can get some better pics, maybe with some sun, tomorrow. These were taken in a rush before work this morning)

Nail art March 14 – Flakes

Dag 14 i Nail art March var flakes. Jeg tænkte straks på at bruge enten min OPI Pure eller OPI The man with the golden gun. Og det gjorde jeg egentlig også… synes bare det var lidt kedeligt. Så jeg besluttede mig for at tilføje nogle negle folier. Man kan næste ikke se OPI The man with the golden gun som er nedenunder, så egentlig er denne mani vel lidt snyd da den ikke føger temaet heeelt vildt godt. Men altså. Der er brugt flakes… og flakes af folie. Det går nok. Jeg synes i hvert fald, at det ser cool ud.

Min mintgrønne base er Nail Station Double-gum (som kommer på bloggen en af dagene). Jeg har også brugt OPI The man with the golden gun og Ciaté negle folie.
_________________________
Day 14 in Nail art Mach was flakes. I immediately thought about using either my OPI Pure og OPI The man with the golden gun. And I did… but I just thought it was a bit boring. So I decided to add some nail foils. Now you almost can’t see the OPI The man with the golden gun that I have underneath, so this mani is almost like cheating, cause it doesn’t really fit the theme too well. But. I did use flakes… and flakes of foil. It’s okay I guess. I think this looks really cool.

My mintgreen base is Nail Station Double-Gum (it will be on the blog one of these days) I also used OPI The man with the golden gun and Ciaté nail foils.

Nail art March 11 – Neons

Så blev det tid til Nail art March dag 11 hvor temaet var Neons. Lidt tidligt at bringe neon lakkerne frem, men det er bare iorden!

Jeg valgte at lave neon drips. Det er længe siden jeg har lavet en drip manicure, så jeg synes det kunne være sjovt. Jeg har tilføjet en kant af guld rundt om dem, og jeg synes det giver dem et utrolig cool look!
Er super godt tilfreds med dem! Jeg synes de er rigtig sjove. Jeg kan godt lide hvordan neonlakkerne står ud mod det hvide, og guldkanten giver bare lige det ekstra.

(Det er først efter nu jeg har set, at sidste tema i Nail art march er Drips… ups. Så må jeg finde på noget lidt anderledes til dér)
__________________
Now it’s time for Nail art March day 11 where the theme vas Neons. A little early to bring out the neons but that alright!

I chose to do neon drips, It’s been a while since I did a drip manicure, so I thought it could be fun. I added a rim of gold areound the drips, and I think it gives them a really cool look!
I’m super happy with these. I think they are really fun. I like how the neon stands out against the white, and the gold just adds that little something extra!

(I only just saw, that the last theme in Nail art March is Drips… oops. I just have to figure out something a little different for that then)

Nail art March 8 – Candies

Dag 8 i Nail art March var Candies, candy. Et tema der faktisk var lidt svært synes jeg. Det svære bestod i, at finde på slik at lave. Jeg ville neglig lave små stykker forskelligt slik på hver negl, og det skulle også være noget der ikke var for svært at lave.
Jeg har faktisk kun lavet slik på to af neglene. Tommel og ringfinger har fået sugar crush lak på (fordi.. helt ærligt, det var jo oplagt).

Jeg har lavet en meget subtle gradient af Illamasqua Milf og Ciaté Pepperminty. Sugar Crush lakken er IsaDora Turquoise Crush.
Af slik har jeg valgt at lave en slikkepind, sweethearts, en lille karamel, m&m’s, en marsbar og toffifee (som jeg synes er de fineste!) På lillefingeren har jeg, meget kreativt I know, skrevet “Candy” fordi jeg løb tør for idéer.

Jeg kan godt se, at i nogle vinkler, så ligner det, at der står “Andy” på lillefingeren. LOL.
_______________________
Day 8 in Nail art March was Candies, candy. A theme that was actualy a bit hard I think. The hard part was choosing what candy to draw. I wanted to make smalle pieces of different candy on each nail, and it had to be something that wasn’t to difficult.
I actualy only made candy on two nails. Thumb and ring finger got two coats of a Sugar Crush polish (cause.. come on, that was just an obvious choice)

I made a subtle gradient using Illamasqua Milf and Ciaté Pepperminty. The Sugar Crush polish is IsaDora Turquoise Crush.
The candy I made is a lollipop, sweethearts, a little toffee, m&m’s, a mars bar and Toffifee (those are the prettiest I think!) On my pinky I, very creatively I know, wrote “Candy”, cause I ran out of ideas.

I realize, that in some angles, it looks like it says “Andy” on the pinky. LOL.

Nail art March 4 – Ombre

Jeg er lidt bagud med at poste til Nail art march udfordringen, men det går nok.

Dag 4 var Ombre (og jeg havde åbenbart opfattet det som gradient, fordi det var det folk på instagram havde lavet. Så jeg havde allerede de fineste farver klar til en gradient, men måtte så finde på noget andet, da gradient og Ombre bestemt ikke er det samme for mig). Jeg valgte at lave en blå ombre. Blå er tilfældigvis min yndlingsfarve når det kommer til neglelak (og faktisk også bare sådan generalt. Elsker navyblå!), og dette er sådan set nogle af mine yndings blå lakker.
Jeg har kun valgt cremelakker til denne mani, da jeg nu engang synes, at ombre manicurer er finest når alle negle har samme finish.

Her er det fra øverst til nederst; Chanel Magic, Chanel Blue Boy, OPI Ogre the top blue og OPI What’s with the cattitude

Jeg er egentlig ikke tilfreds med denne mani. Synes ikke farverne går godt sammen, men det var de blå jeg har, som fungerede best sammen. (Og billedet er crap.)
________________________________
I am a bit behind with posting pictures for the Nail art March challenge. But that’s okay.

Day 4 was ombre (and I thought it was gradient, cause thats was what people were doing on instagram. So I had already found some great colors for a gradient, but had to find something else, cause in my mind gradient and ombre is not the same) I chose to do a blue gradient. Blue happens to be my favorite nail poish color (and is my favorite color in general. I love navy blue!) and this is actually some of my favorite blue polishes.
I chose to do it with only creme polishes, cause I do like ombres best, when the nails have the same finish.

Here it is, from top to bottom; Chanel Magic, Chanel Blue Boy, OPI Ogre the top blue and OPI What’s with the cattitude

I’m not really that satisfied with this mani. I don’t really think the colors go that well together, but they are the ones I have that worked best. (The picture is crap.)

Nail art March 1 – Dotticure

I denne måned deltager jeg i Californails’ månedlige nail art challenge. Nogle gange synes jeg, at hendes Challenger er lidt krævende, fordi temaerne er “svære”, men i denne måned synes jeg temaerne ser ret overskuelige ud, så jeg er med!
Desuden vil jeg gerne lave nogle fine negle på de her korte negle jeg render rundt med.

Første tema er dotticure, og tro det eller ej, så dotter jeg ikke. Det har måske noget at gøre med, at mine dottingtools er fyldt med indtørret akrylmaling, fordi jeg har brugt dem til at blande farver med.
Jeg havde lyst til at lave noget noget der var lidt anderledes end den normale dotticure. Jeg havde iforvejen tænkt mig, at jeg ville lave vintergæknegle, (før jeg vidste jeg ville deltage i denne challenge), så jeg besluttede mig for “Hvorfor ikke lave dem ud af prikker?”. Så det har jeg gjort!

Det er ikke blevet helt som jeg havde forventet, men synes de er rigtig fine og unikke alligevel.

Min base er China Glaze Keep calm Paint on. Resten er lavet med akrylmaling.
____________
This month I’m participating in Californails’ monthly nail art challenge. Sometimes I think her Challenges are a bit “time consuming” because the themes are difficult. But this month I thik they are pretty doable, so I’m in!
I also just really want to do some pretty nails on these short nails of mine.

The first theme is Dotticure, and believe it or not, I never dot. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that my dottingtools are covered in dried acrylic paint, cause I use them to mix colors.
I wanted to do something different than the ususal dotticure. I already had a snowdrop manicure in mind (before I decided to do the challenge), so I decided “Why not make them out of dots?” So that’s what I did!

It didn’t turn out completely how I wanted, but I still think it’s really pretty and unique.

My base is China Glaze Keep Calm Paint on. Everything else is acrylic paint.

NOTD – Illamasqua Scorn

Tænk engang… min nye negleform holdt kun i to uger, og så blev jeg træt af den. Jeg kunne godt lide, at kanterne ikke var skarpe, som de plejer at være med mine squares, men det var bare så svært at file dem så de så ens ud. Så igår klippede jeg dem helt ned, så jeg kan begynde på et par friske firkantede negle. Så de er virkelig korte nu. Men det er godt at være tilbage til de firkantede.

Lige efter jeg havde klippet dem, havde jeg behov for at tage en fed lak på. Jeg valdte en sort, som jeg ikke har fået vist på bloggen før. Det er Illamasqua Scorn. Det er en super fed lak, for den er ikke shiny, og den er ikke mat. Synes den er rigtig cool. Og så kan jeg nu godt lide sort lak på korte negle.

Dette et to lag uden top coat.
Og ja, jeg burde nok få mig en ridge filler, det kan jeg godt se.
____________
Would you believe(“the same old story, it never bores me, though I’ve heard it all before”.. sorry, had to do that!)… my new nail shape lasted two weeks, and then I got tired of it. I liked how it was not sharp at the edges, how my squares are usually, but they were just so hard to shape so they looked alike. So yesterday I cut them down, so I can start a fresh hand of square nails. So they are really short now. But it’s nice to be back to square.

Right after I cut them, I wanted to polish them with a cool polish, so I chose a black that I haven’t shown on the blog before. It’s Illamasqua Scorn. It’s a super cool polish, cause it’s not shiny, and not matte. I really love it. And I do love a black polish on short nails.

This is two coats, no top coat.

NOTD – Pastel Tribal

I ved jeg elsker mine tribals, men ved I også, at jeg også elsker pasteller? Jeg er vild med pastel farver, så her har jeg kombineret tribal og pastel, og jeg elsker det!
Det her er en super simpel manicure, hvor kun en negl har nail art på. Normalt ville jeg nok have lavet alle neglene, men da jeg lavede denne (i sidste weekend!!) kom jeg igang sent på aftenen, og nåede derfor kun en negl. Men jeg synes det er super fint!

Min base på de andre negle er Essie Mint Candy Apple.
__________________

You know I love my tribals, but do you also know, that I love pastels? I am crazy about pastel colors, so here I have combined tribal and pastel, and I love it!
This is a super simple manicure, where only one nail as nail art on it. Normally I would do all the nails,but when I made this (last weekend!!) I started late in the evening, and therefore I only had time for one nail. But I think it super pretty!

My base for the rest og the nails is Essie Mint Candy Apple.

 

My camera wouldn’t really focus properly on the nail with the nail art :/

NOTD – Pattern from “The art of Frozen” (Inspired by)

Forleden fik jeg den skønneste bog, nemlig bogen The art of Frozen. Det skal ikke være en hemmelighed, at Frozen klart er en af mine yndlings Disney film. Jeg synes den er helt igennem fantastisk, og selvfølgelig skulle jeg have et eller andet Frozen merchandise. Min mor og jeg besluttede os for at købe The art of Frozen, som er en helt fantastisk bog med billeder af storyboards, sketcher, idéer til karakterer, landskaber og en masse god tekst. Jeg er helt vild med bogen. Den er super smuk og spændende at læse.
Det viser sig også, at der er en masse gode idéer til nail art, så selvfølgelig gik jeg straks igang.

Dette er inspireret af et mønster der var et billede af i bogen. Om mønstret faktisk er brugt i Frozen, eller om det bare var en idé, ved jeg ikke. Men jeg synes det var super flot.
I bogen var mønstret lysegrønt på en olivengrøn base. Jeg havde i forvejen China Glaze Budding Romance på, før jeg overhoved havde set mønstret, men det passede perfekt i farven, så det var jo oplagt, at det var det jeg skulle lave.
Jeg har dog valgt at lave mønstret i hvidt, da jeg ikke kunne blande en flot grøn farve. Og jeg synes faktisk, at det hvide ser super flot ud!

Jeg er fuldt ud tilfreds! :D
________________
The other day I got the most wonderful book. I got The art of Frozen. It’s no secret, that Frozen for sure is one of my favorite Disney movies. I think it’s completely amazing, and of course I had to have some Frozen merchandise. My mom and me decided to buy The art of Frozen, which is such an amazing book filled with pictures of storyboards, sketches, ideas for characters and landscapes, and there’s also some great text. It’s super beautiful and a great read.

It turned out, there’s also a lot of good ideas for nail art, so of course I went straight to work.

This nail art is inspired by a pattern from the book. If the pattern is actually used in Frozen, or if it’s just an idea, I don’t know. But I thought it was super pretty.

In the book, the pattern was light green on a olive colored base. I was actually already wearing China Glaze Budding Romance, before I even saw the pattern, but it was a perfect match for the color in the book, so it was obvious that I had to make that.
I did make the pattern in white, cause I couldn’t mix a pretty green color. But I actually think the white looks really pretty.

I’m really really satisfied with the result! :D

NOTD – Shimmer Polish Bernice

For noget tid siden fik jeg en masse lakker fra skaberen af indiemærket Shimmer Polish. Jeg har ikke fået vist dem endnu, for jeg har ikke haft neglelaksfjerner med acetone, så jeg har ikke kunne fjerne glitter. Så jeg ville vente til jeg kunne faktisk kunne tage det på og fjerne det igen.

I dag vil jeg vise Bernice. Bernice har en mørk base og er fyldt med sølv, blå, sort og holografisk glitter. Nogle er hexagonglittere andre er små firkantede stykker glitter. Jeg kan rigtig godt lide sammensætningen af farver i denne lak.

Her har jeg lagt den over Chanel Cosmic som er en sort lak med meget fint sølvshimmer (det kan jo ikke ses her. Valgte bare en mørk base) Her er det to lag Bernice over Cosmic.

På de sidste to billeder er manicuren blevet mattified. Jeg elsker det!
___________________

Some time ago I recieved a lot of polishes from the maker of the indiebrand Shimmer Polish. I haven’t shown them yet, cause I haven’t had nail polish remover with acetone, so I haven’t been able to remove glitter. So I wanted to wait till I actually could put it on and remove it again.

Today I want to show you Bernice. Bernice has a dark base and is filled with silver, blue, black and holographic glitter. Some are hexagon glitters and some are smalle square glitters. I really like the mix of colors I this polish.

Here I put Bernice over Chanel Cosmic which is a black polish with very fine silver shimmer (it can’t be seen here. I just chose a dark base)
Here it’s two layers Bernice over Cosmic.

On the last two pics i mattified the mani. I love it!
