Also, I made the galaxy go diagonally across each nail the same way. I think next time I would like to make them each different for more variety! As far as "how I did it" goes, I was inspired mostly by a tutorial on YouTube by CutePolish.
I first painted my nails solid black. Then I took a ripped off piece of a makeup sponge, and applied white where I wanted my"galaxies to go. Then I very lightly dabbed on a few other colors to make it look interesting - I used yellow, pink, and light blue. They're all barely visible, but I think the yellow is pretty noticeable. Then I dotted some white stars around the sides and applied a coat of very fine glitter over the top. I then topped that with Seche Vite.
As far as my colors go, I used (from left to right):
- Spoiled - Shaken Snow Globe
- Ulta - Sweetheart Pink
- Ulta - Sun-Sational
- Ulta - Mint Condition
- Wet n Wild - French White Creme
- Wet n Wild - Black Creme
All in all, I guess they turned out alright. I'm pretty happy with them, but since it was my first try, it was definitely a learning experience! I would like to make the galaxies on each nail more unique, in shape, color, direction, and I guess my stars were a fail! I'll use a toothpick or something smaller. Also, my top coat smeared it a bit. I'll have to wait a while longer before putting it over black!
