Hey everyone! Today was my first attempt at galaxy nails! I was quite scared that it would be really hard but I was completely wrong! These nails are (surprisingly) very easy! Please enjoy this tutorial and if you try it I would love you to send me a picture on my Facebook page!
What You Will Need:
-A base/top coat (optional)
-White nail polish
-Finley milled glitter polish
-Pink nail polish
-Light blue polish
-Light purple polish
-Dark/middle blue polish
-A makeup sponge
-Something with a sharp end such
as a safety pin or toothpick
Paint your nails your nails with a base coat (optional) and then apply 2 coats of black polish or until the colour is solid.
Put a few drops of white polish onto a surface. Rip off a small piece of sponge and with tweezers dip it in the white polish.
Sponge the white on different parts of your nail to create a "nebula".
Do the same with the light blue and apply it over the white. Don't cover the white completely as you want some of it to show through. (Sorry the lighting in the second picture is very bright.)
Do the same with the purple, and ad a little bit of pink in the 'corners' of the nebula. I also applies some light patches of purple on some of the black. Then apply some of the dark blue on the edge of the white so the white blends into the black better.
With a pin/toothpick/safety pin (I used a safety pin although I think that was the hard way) dip it in some white polish and put little dots on the side of the 'nebula' On each nail I also drew little cross like shapes to look like twinkling stars.
Apply a coat of the glitter polish, finnish with a top coat, and you are done!
(The glitter didn't really show up in this picture ):
I really hope you all enjoyed this really fun and cute nail tutorial! It didn't take me that long and I am really happy with the results. Don't forget that if you try it out to post a picture to my Facebook page! http://www.facebook.com/Luckybeauty07
