Christmas Ornaments

Hey guys!

Today I have a DIY project to share with you - christmas ornaments made with nail polish!
I also made some last year and the year before. You can check them out here, here and here.


To get started, you need some plain glass ornament and a lot of nail polish.
I found my glass ornaments at the Danish hobby store Panduro.

When making these nail polish christmas ornaments, I always start off by pouring some nail polish inside the ornament and turning it around until the entire inside of the ornament is covered with nail polish.


First up is this christmas tree ornament.
I swirled around Essie S'il Vous Play on the inside of the ornament with a Q-tip to create the swirled effect. On the outside I freehanded six different christmas trees with a small nail art brush and the blue polish Essie Style Cartel.


Next up is this 'God Jul' ornament. 'God Jul' means Merry Christmas in Danish!
I used OPI Innie Minnie Mightie Bow on the inside of the ornament. On the outside I freehanded the letters with a small nail art brush and gold acrylic paint.


Next I have this beautiful glitter ornament.
I started off with the blue Ciaté Skinny Jeans on the inside of the ornament. Then I made this glitter gradient using L'Oréal Gold Leaf.


This last ornament is not made this polish, but I thought I would share it anyway, because it's so pretty!

And that's it! What do you guys think about these nail polish christmas ornaments?

Rudolph

Hey guys!

Today I have some cute Christmas nail art to share with you!

For the manicure I started off with the beautiful red polish Cirque Colors Rioja on all my nails, except for my ring finger which I painted blue with Deborah Lippmann Blue Orchid. Afterwards I freehanded Rudolph the Reindeer on my ring finger with a small nail art brush, the brown piCture pOlish Nougat, Cirque Colors Rioja (for the nose), Essie Lady Godiva (for the antlers), and white and black polish for the eyes.


Close up!


I love how this cute nail art turned out!

OPI Snow Globetrotter

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of OPI Snow Globetrotter to share with you!
Snow Globetrotter is matte white and iridescent hex glitters in a clear base.

The formula on this polish is on the thin side, which means it takes quite a bit of manipulation to distribute the glitters evenly on the nails. It also means you need to fish for the bigger glitters in the bottle.
Below it is shown with one layer on top of Deborah Lippmann Blue Orchid.

Even though this polish is hard to work with, it looks really pretty on the nails!

Christmas Sweater

Hey guys!

Today I have some christmas sweater nail art to share with you!

For the manicure I started off with a red base of Essie Dress to Kilt on all my nails. Afterwards I stamped the design onto my middle and ring finger with MoYou London Festive 06 stamping plate and the white polish Essence Wild White Ways. To finish everything off I added China Glaze Fairy Dust to my pinky.

I actually don't have a christmas sweater, but now I have the design on my nails!

Snowflakes

Hey guys!

I'M BACK! Did you miss me?

Today I have some simple stamping nail art featuring snowflakes to share with you!

For the manicure I started off with a dark blue base of Essie Style Cartel on all my nails. On my ring finger I created the negative space accent nail with a small nail art brush dipped in acetone. Afterwards I added the rose gold snowflakes using Essie Penny Talk and MoYou London Festive 02 stamping plate.


Close up!


I love how these turned out - so chic and festive!

Election Coming Up!

Hey guys!

Today I have some nail art that is very special to me to share with you!
I am running to be a member of the Central Denmark Regional Counsil and this manicure is inspired by the political party I represent.

For the manicure I started off with a deep blue base of Essie Style Cartel on my pointer, middle finger, and thumb. Afterwards I painted one-third of my pinky and ring finger with the white Essence Wild White Ways. Lastly I added the decal shaped as a V that I made by cutting it out of a dry piece of the orange nail polish China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy.


I will be insanely busy the next couple of weeks due to my election campaign, which is why I won't be posting as much.

Studs

Hey guys!

Today I have some simple nail art featuring lots and lots of studs to share with you!

For the manicure I started off with a base of piCture pOlish Bonkers on all my nails (the formula on this polish is perfect). On my ring finger I only painted part of the nail with piCture pOlish Bonkers. Afterwards I added studs in different colors and sizes to my ring finger.


Close up!


I love this simple nail art and how it matches with the piCture pOlish lipstick!
