Hello everyone! I had so much fun with this manicure! Yeah, it took longer than usual, but the result was so worth it. I don't want to take it off! GAH!!! So without further adieu I will get right into the good stuff! Enjoy!!!

I'm not going to go into many details on how I got these done. If I did I would have to do a separate tutorial for each nail. Really, I just wanted to do a different version of galaxy nails (since I see so many people do it so similarly.) Most of it is done freehand with a very fine paint brush, and then some sponge gradient and use of my dotting tool. For the base I used Color Club Beyond, a gorgeous black holo that radiantly stands out in the sunlight, even though you can't really see in these photos. For the rest I used an assortment of polish colors and acrylic paint (I'll list the polish below, though you can really use whatever colors, it doesn't really make a difference.)
- Teal: China Glaze Aquadelic
- Blue: Cosmetic Arts - Doesn't say a name :(
- Red: American Apparel Nail Lacquer Lipstick
- Pink: China Glaze Dance Baby
- Orange: China Glaze Peachy Keen
- Periwinkle: OPI You're Such a Budapest
- Cream: Zoya Jacqueline
- L. Purple: Orly Purple Pleather
- D. Purple: Zoya Perrie
To get inspiration on doing something different with my galaxy nails I googled "Galaxy" and "Galaxy Art" and "Planets" and other things to find inspiration for the designs I wanted to do. As a bonus, here are the pics I pulled inspiration from:
I hope you all enjoyed today's post! Until next time, take care!
