Galaxy Nail Art

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  I hope you all are having a great Monday.  Are great Monday's possible  Today I am bringing you a galaxy manicure straight from The Little Canvas vault.  I have so many new manicures to show you, but I have decided to hold off on editing them until I get through some of these old manicures that I was so proud of at the time.

I can't begin to explain how much I loved these galaxies!  I attempted galaxy nails last year but never posted them because I really wasn't pleased with the end result.  I might have to look for a photo of those to post on Instagram as part of throwback Thursday, plus it would be neat to compare.  One thing I do know is that this years attempt was much more sparkly and had more "depth" than the others.

Let's take a look.

Colors Used:

  • Base
    • Zoya - Storm
  • Galaxies
    • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
    • Ulta - Sun-Sational
    • Sinful Colors - Cream Pink
    • Color Club - Over the Moon
  • Stars
    • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
    • INM - Northern Lights
Neat, right???

To get the look, I started off with a base coat of Zoya Storm, the worlds greatest sparkly black polish.  If you're going to do galaxy nails, this polish is a must have.  When my base was dry, with the corner of a make up sponge, I dabbed white where I wanted the galaxy to be.  With another corner of the sponge, I took yellow polish and dabbed it along the white polish.  Then, with Cream Pink and another corner of the make up sponge, I dabbed the pink randomly around the galaxy.  Finally, I took Over the Moon and sponged around the edge of the galaxy to blend the white into the black.  I then took INM Northern Lights and added a quick top coat to add sparkly and blend the galaxy together.

When Northern Lights was dried, with my small and large dotting tool, I added a bunch of random stars.  Once those were completely dried, I went through and added a plain shiny top coat.

What do you think?  Liking the galaxies?  Ever tried them yourself?

I'm so happy I decided to add the holo polish around the edges to blend the black into the galaxy.  It really completed the look.  Ahhh I should have taken a video of how sparkly they were.  Maybe I'll do them again eventually.

Until next time, <3.
