POTC Jack Sparrow nail art

(LOL. This post has been privated since I made it on the 21. It is now the 29, and I only just realized. FAIL!)

Nu er det efterhånden nogle dage siden, at jeg lavede denne mani. Jeg blev ikke vildt tilfreds med den, men jeg har brugt en del tid på den, så det ville næsten være synd, ikke at vise den.
På Instagram fik jeg en request om, at lave nogle POTC, altså Pirates of the Caribbean negle. Og det synes jeg da var en god ide, siden jeg selv er fan er filmene. Jeg havde egentlig planlagt at lave alle de tre hovedpersoner, men det endte med bare at blive Jack, for det ville tage alt for lang tid.
Jeg synes ikke det ligner, men jeg synes egentlig, at det er ret flot. Det er trods alt kun anden gang jeg maler realistisk, så selvom det måske ikke ligner vildt godt, så ligner det da et realistisk ansigt… ikke? :)
De andre negle er laver med noget random sponging (elsker det ord dansk sammenhæng) og med forskellige guld glitterlakker på tipperne. Fordi det synes jeg var ret pasende ;D

It’s been some time since I made this mani. I wasn’t satisfied, but I spend a lot of time on it, so it would be a shame not to share it with you.
On Instagram I got a request to make some POTC, Pirates of the Caribbean nails. I thought it was a good ides, cause I’m a fan of the movies. I planned on doing all the main characters, but it ended up only being Jack, cause it would take too long to make them all.
I don’t think it looks like him, but I think it’s kinda pretty. It is only the second time painting realisticially, so even though it doesn’t look like Jack, it does look like a realistic face… right? :)
The other nails are made with some random sponging and different gould glitter polishes. Because I thought that was appropriate.

**Vind biografbilletter til Step Up All In!**

(Sorry, this post is only for my danish readers)

 

Hej!
Hvad siger I til endnu en giveaway om nogle lækre biobilletter? Jeg har igen fået lov til at udlodde 2×2 biletter til mine skønne læsere. Denne gang er det til filmen Step Up All In. Det er 5. film i serien, så noget tyder på, at det er noget folk kan lide :D. Jeg har ikke selv set filmene, så jeg glæder mig til at se denne med min søster. 

For at være med i lodtrækningen om 2 billetter, skal I bare lægge en kommentar i kommentarfeltet om hvad jeres yndlingsfilm er og hvorfor :)

Biletterne er fribilletter, og holder til d. 18. september. 
Jeg finder to vindere på torsdag, og vinderne bliver fundet ved tilfældig lodtrækning :)

 

her er traileren, hvis I ikke har set den:

Ciaté Haute House collection – Polishes for fall 2014

bla3

Så er der igen lækre nyheder fra Ciaté, i form af et af deres søde små huse med minineglelakker! Deres efterårskollektion hedder Haute House, og er et hus der består af fem smukke varme efterårsfarver. Farverne er fuldstændig fantastiske, og helt bestemt passende til efteråret og de koldere måneder.
Lakkerne bliver beskrevet som at have “rich ink formula”, og skulle give fuld dækning ved bare et lag.
Det lyder jo intet mindre end fantastisk ikke?
Jeg vil dog ikke sige, at alle lakkerne dækker ved et lag. Hvis man vil have en super intens farve, er man nødt til at lægge to lag af “For the frill of it” og “Sass pot”. Resten er one coatere, og det er lidt fedt. Hvem elsker ikke one coatere? :)
Skal vi se nogle billeder af denne skønne kollektion!?

Haute House kollektionen koster 195kr, og kan købes i Magasin, Salling og Bahne fra uge 35.
________________
Yet again we have some lovely news from Ciaté in form of one of their cute small houses with mini nail polishes! Their fall collection is called Haute House, and it’s a house consisting of five beautiful warm fall polishes. The colors are absolutely fantastic and definitely fitting for fall and the colder months.
The polishes are described as having a “rich ink formula” meaning they are supposed to give full color opacity in one coat.
Now that sounds fantastic doesn’t it?
I wouldn’t say, that all the polishes are opaque in one coat. If you want full on intense color, you have to put two layers of “For the frill of it” and Sass pot”. The rest are one coaters, and that’s pretty cool. Who doesn’t love one coaters? :)
Shall we take a look at the wonderful collection?

For the Frill of it: This is a gorgeous shimmer-y brown polish. It is described as being gold, but I wouldn’t call it that. It is definitely brown. This is the only one in the collection that has a duochrome effect, and it is gorgeous. I always love polishes like this more in the shadow, when you can truly see how stunning color shift they have. I tried to capture it as best as I could, but it was pretty difficult. It shifts from and orang-y red to a yellow-y gold, almost with some hints of green. Stunning! This one needed two coats.

a
Tickle my fancy: A lovely deep green shimmer polish. This one is almost leaning towards blue, or almost a dark teal. Definitely a beautiful color, and lots of shimmer! This is one coat.

bb
Sass pot: A very dark purple color. Not one of my faves, but it is beautiful. It’s one of those colors that almost looks black on the nails, but in the sun, it’s easy to tell that it’s purple. This is two coats, as this polish is a bit thinner than the rest.

d
Can can: One of my favorites from the collection. A beautiful cranberry (?) color. It is absolutely gorgeous. This is another polish that also looks great in the shade. It becomes such a dark and beautiful color. Love it. Here I have on one coat.

c
Knee highs:This might not come as a surprise, but this is my favorite. It’s blue. And stunning. It’s like a mix of my favorite polish ever (Essie Aruba Blue, if you didn’t already know by now) and Essie Midnight cami. If they had a baby, this is it. I am so in love with this. It’s beautiful!

Also, great news! These polishes will be launched in full sized bottles, so if there’s one you really like, you can get a big bottle of it! That’s great! :D

NOTD – Birthday mani!

Det er min fødselsdag! Jeg bliver 22 år idag. Eller blev, for dagen er ved at gå på hæld. Jeg har haft en helt fantastisk god dag, i selvskab med min familie, og ingenting er bedre end det! Jeg fik dog også nogle skønne gaver, og det har også gjort dagen dejlig! 

Selvfølgelig blev der lavet fødselsdagsnegle. Faktisk var de ret plain til at starte med, men i løbet af idag, besluttede jeg mig for, at der nu aligevel skulle noget nail art på. 
Som altid er der flag på neglene, det er en tradition!
______________

It’s my birthday! I turn 22 today. Or I turned, cause the day is slowly coming to an end. I’ve had the most amazing day in the company of my family and nothing is better than that! I also got some great presents, and that also made the day wonderful!

Of course I made birthday nails. Actualy they were pretty plain to start out with, but today I decided they needed a little nail art anyway. 
As always there’s danish flags on there, cause that’s a tradition!

Nailstation Front Row collection – A set of 5 neon polishes!

head

Såeh.. dette indlæg er loong overdue(bedre sent end aldrig, ikke?), men jeg var lidt overvældet af hvor mange billeder jeg havde fået taget af disse lakker, så jeg orkede ikke at kigge dem igennem… før nu!
Jeg synes egentlig ikke at mine billeder gjorde lakkerne justice, men de er neonlakker, og neonlakker er svære at tage billeder af, punktum. Så I skal da se billeder alligevel, og nu synes jeg faktisk, at de er ret farve-korrekte.

Det sæt jeg vil vise Jer hedder Front Row, og er en lille skøn kollektion bestående af 5 neonlakker. Ved I hvad jeg mener, hvis jeg kalder dem pastel neon lakker? Okay, nyt neglelak-term som jeg lige har fundet på. Det er nemlig sådan jeg vil beskrive dem. Kun to af disse er “neon neons” altså virkelig skrigende. De andre er skam også skrigende, men mere pastel. Get it?
Det er en helt fantastik kollektion. Farverne er super flotte, de har en skøn konsistens og er i det hele taget bare herlige. Så skal vi ikke se på nogle billeder?
På alle billederne er der to lag lak over hvid. De tre pastel-neons kan godt lægges alene, de to neon neons vil jeg sige kræver en hvid base.
______________
Soo.. this post is loong overdue(better late than never right?), but I was a bit overwhelmed by how many pictures I took of these polishes, so I haven’t looked through them… before now!
I didn’t think my pictures did the polishes justice, but they are neon polishes, and neons are hard to photograph, period. So of course you’re gonna see pics anyway, and now I actually think they are pretty color-accurate.

The set I want to show you is called Front Row and it’s a little wonderful collection that consists of five neon polishes. Do you know what I mean when I say pastel neons? okay, that’s a new nail polish term I just made up. Cause that’s how I yould describe these. Only two of these are “neon neons”, really bright colors. The others are bright as well, but more pastel. Get it?
It’s a completely fantastic collection. The colors are super pretty, polishes have a great consistency and all in all it’s just some lovely polishes. So should we take a look at the pictures?
On all pictures there’s two coats of polish over a white base. The three pastel neons could go without a white, but the two neon neons I would reccomend putting over white.

Get the jet
A super pretty medium blue color. I love me some blue polishes, and this one is no exeption. This is one of the pastel neons. It’s really bright on the nail, but not enough to be a true neon.

Street style
This is one of my favorites from the collection. It’s a beautiful pastel neon green (don’t you just love how I’m already using that term like it’s actually a real term!?) It a unique color I think, because its like a pale bright green pastel neon. I absolutely love it. The polish is darker than my pic shows.

Front row
This is a true orange neon. No pastel neon polish here. I have seen this neon color a lot, and have a few in my collection, so it’s not really unique. But it sure is pretty!

I love Paris
Another true neon polish. I love Paris is one of those dark pink neons that we all know and love. Ah, stunning!

Emirati lady
Another one of my favorites. Who would have thought, a pink my favorite! But its such a pretty color. Again, I totally love the pastel feel this has. But it’s pastel neon! PASTEL NEON!! (Am I going crazy? I think I am.. maybe I should go outside and get some sun, instead of sitting inside at my computer, no?

Products recieved for review.

NOTD – Maps (Inspired by Maroon 5)

Heej!

En af mine yndlingssagne i øjeblikket er Maroon 5’s Maps. Marron 5 er et af mine absolutte yndlingsbands, og jeg glæder mig altid til, at der kommer nye sange fra dem. Maps er en super god sang, og ikke nok med det, så er singlens cover så flot.. såå, det skulle naturligvis laves på neglene!

Som I måske ved, så elsker jeg blomster-manicurer, men jeg synes ikke selv, at jeg er vild god til at lave dem. Derfor er det måske også godt med lidt øvelse.

Her har jeg China Glaze Stone vold som base (en af mine yndlingslakker!) og resten er akrylmaling. Jeg er helt vild med hvordan dette blev. Jeg synes det er så fint, og synes det ligner coveret ret godt!
________________
Heeeello!

One of my favorit songs at the moment is Maps by Marron 5. Maroon 5 is one of my favorite bands, and I’m always excited when new music comes out. Maps is a super good song, and like that wasn’t enough, the cover for Maps is so pretty.. soo, obviously I had to make it on my nails!

As you might know, I love floral prints, but I don’t think I’m that good at making them. So maybe it’s good with some practice.

Here I have on China Glaze Stone Cold as a base (one of my favorite nail polishes!) and the rest is acrylic paint. I am crazy about how this turned out. I think it’s so pretty, and it’s looks quite like the cover.

NOTD – Foxy Paws Lambada

I går fik jeg endelig prøvet min Foxy Paws Lambada, og hold da op en lækker lak. Det er en grøn/gul neon lak med meget fint holo! Det bliver næsten ikke bedre end det!
På mine billeder har jeg et lag hvid lak på og tre lag Lambada. To kunne nok have gjort det, men synes ikke det var helt jævnt, så gav det lige et lag til. Jeg har desuden tilføjet nogle neon studs for lidt ekstra neon-ness (de er også købt hos FoxyPaws side). Totalt lækker lak! 
____________________

Yesterday I finally got to try my Foxy Paws Lambada, and oh my God it’s a gorgeous polish. It’s a green/yellow neon polish with very fine shimmer. It almost doesn’t get any better than that! 
On ny pictures I have on a layer of white polish and three coats of Lambada. Two could have done it, but I didn’t think it was all that even, so I added another one. I also added some neon studs for some extra neon-ness! (they were also bought on Foxy Paws site) Such a gorgeous polish!

NOTD – Blue china, (inspired by Nina Dobrev)

Hej!

I dag har jeg nogle super fine negle at vise Jer. Jeg følger Nina Dobrev på instagram (selvom jeg for lang tid siden stoppede med at se TVD, frdi jeg synes det blev lidt for meget) og jeg blev super inspireret af den kjole hun havde på til San Diego Comic Con. En rigtig flot hvid kjole med et blåt mønster (Ved nærmere undersøgelser, viser det sig, at det var en top og shorts. Men flot alligevel!)

Min base er Dance Legend 322. Jeg elsker farven og konsistensen på denne lak, men den chipper desværre så hurtigt! Det er bare ikke fedt når man har brugt lang tid på at lave et fint design! 

(Fun fact: Jeg havde et “mareridt” om denne manicure den anden nat. Jeg drømte, at den var helt chippet, faldet af I store stykker, før jeg overhoved havde nået at tage billeder af den! I kan nok forstå hvor lettet jeg blev, da jeg fandt ud af, at det bare havde været en drøm!)
_________________________

Hi!

Today I have some really pretty nails to show you. I follow Nina Dobrev on Instagram (even though I stopped watching TVD a long time ago, cause it started getting too much for my liking) and I got super inspired by the dress she wore at San Diego Comic Con. A really pretty white dress with blue print (By further inspection, It looks like it’s actually a top and shorts. But it’s pretty nontheless!)

My base is Dance Legend 322. i love the color and the consistency of this polish, it just chips so fast! That’s just not nice, when you spent a long time making a pretty design. 

(Fun fact: I had a “nightmare” about this mani the other night. I dreamt It was totally shipped off, like in bug chunks, and that was before I had had the chance to take pictures of it! You can understand I was very relieved when I woke up to find it had only been a dream!)
