Friday I was at my school's big birthday party and for the occasion, I tried some nail wraps/small rhinestones from essence. They are fantastic! I've worn them for 4 days, without loosing one single stone, and when I took the wraps off, to make todays TuesdayChallenge, the wraps remained intact, so with help from a nailglue, the wraps are as good as new - fantastic!
I fredags var jeg til min skoles store fødselsdagsfest og til lejligheden, prøvede jeg nogle nail wraps med små similisten fra essence. De er fantastiske! Jeg har haft dem på i 4 dage nu, uden at miste en eneste, og nu da jeg lige har taget dem af, for at lave min TuesdayChallenge, forblev 'klistermærkerne' intakte! Så med lidt hjælp fra en neglelim er mine nail wraps så gode som nye! Hvor er det skønt! :)

Today I've started on the challenge - disney princesses. Here is the start with the basic colors, and this is how it looks every time I make my nail art, first the basics with the big brushes, and afterwards correcting and then perfecting ;) I've only made it to the basics, but I'll finish it in school :)
Done! Here are the finishes:

Yesterday I used my first pack of nail art wraps (10 of them out of 20 in each pack) from models own! I've before used wraps from Essence and Urban Outfitters which are both really great with extreme hold (and especially Essence's studio nail fashion sticker is also really cheap and therefore recommended! -I'll make a review some other day). But today it's about Models Own's Nail Art Wraps I bought on their website when they had 50% off :D I bought 2x cuboid and 1x POW! (and 6 polishes). Of course they look great! I love the mix of gold, silver and black, so everything can match (as an example, it matches the city life perfectly!).
But as you might see in the picture, they are already damaged on 2nd day (this is way to fast compared to the others I've had which also looked great in the 2nd week!). It is because of the foil. These stickers have a black base, with a tiny layer of silver and gold foil on it, and this can easily be scratched off.. I tried to put a layer of topcoat on it, but this made the foil crumble, and (in my opinion) ruined it... I only have topcoat on the right hand to see the difference, and the right hand is worse. Here is more foil disappeared but at least its plane where the gold is... I'm happy I bought two packs so I can find out a way to get them to stay longer without the foil crumbles... But I'll keep them the rest of this weekend and admire them as long as I can!
|Here's today's view... It looks like I just picked the wrong sizes or couldn't avoid the air-pockets, but this happened after the topcoat. But of course they are beautiful, and I'm tempted to stick out my hand on each tourist-photo I take!|

Her er det endelige resultat! Måske lidt overdrevent og KAPOW-agtigt... Men det er jo også en energidrik :-)
På min pege- og lille finger er symbolet med de to tyre. På langefingeren er der én tyr tæt på, ring fingeren har jeg skrevet 'Red Bull' på og min tommelfinger har vinger, for ja.. drikken giver dig jo vinger ;-) I min værktøjskasse med neglelakker fandt jeg en lyseblå striper, som jeg ikke før har brugt, og den var perfekt til jobbet! Jeg overvejer at poste et billede på 9gag, hvor der står 'I rarely drink Red Bull... But when I do, my nails need to match!' :-P
Here is the final result! It might be a bit too KAPOW-ish... But then again, it is an energy drink!
On my index finger and little finger is the symbol with the two bulls, on the middle finger is one bull up close, the ring finger I've written Red Bull and on my thumb is a set of wings, because... well.. it gives you wings, right? In my toolbox with polishes, I found a light blue striper, which was perfect for the job, and I had never used it until now :) I'm considering to post a photo on 9gag saying 'I rarely drink Red Bull... but when I do, my nails need to match!'
Today (November the 14th) is a blue mani-day to help raise awareness of diabetes! I think my nails could match this event, even though i is an energy drink... But this is the light blue design and it is red Bull light -without sugar ;-) Check out Ninja Polish on Facebook, where there will be more pictures of blue nails today :D

I finally got a great shot (from my friend Cecilie's iPhone). Now i dare to take off the polish when I had one good shoot... Look forward to tuesday, when I'll make batman-nails! -Nails with bat-ears. This is seen before on fake nails such as gel or acrylic nails, but I'll test an method where they won't be so sharp (because it often happens that I scratch people with my nails...). This method will be better to your nails because it won't damage them and it is easier to take of as well. But today I'll lay my new Orly-laquer on left hand when Jack's gone, because I already wear it on the right, and it looks amazing!
