The whole thing started because I decided to give Galaxy Nails a try. I knew it was just a matter of sponging the Milky Way on but I just never felt like attempting it before.
So last night I did.
It was looking very promising until about step 3,when I decided to be less Milky Way and more like the pretty sky I could see outside.
It just took one move to confuse the galaxy that was in the making. I realized it only takes some well placed dark blue polish to ruin,in this case transform, this particular mani.
Here's what happened
Step 1 : Apply black nail polish. This really can be any black polish,as long as it doesn't take forever to dry. Because as you will be sponging other polishes on it,if it hasn't dried,you will end up with black all over the place.
Step 2 : Pick a white polish of your choice and sponge diagonally on the black nail,like so:
You can use any sponge,from make-up sponge,to cutting off a little piece of the kitchen sponge.
Step 3 : Apply the first color polish to the upper and lower edges of the white polish line. I used Catrice Iron Mermaiden, whose metallic multi chrome shimmer you can see. It's a bit messy,but I figured I'll clean it up at the end all together and not after each step.Would have been a bit useless to spend more time cleaning.
Step 4 : This is where Galaxy became Night Sky. If you want to keep the galaxy,you should sponge at the edges of the white line,keep some white visible,and create a nebula pattern. Well, I did no such thing.
I took the Catrice Blues Brothers Vol II and the W7 Metallic Mercury and did some major cover-up work.
The blue is really effective in covering up,so if you're doing galaxy nails,use it sparsely or else it might ruin the galaxy. Also,make sure you use a small sponge when applying the blue,it can easily become too much.
I then put some glitter on it, a purple Saffron in this case,and voila!
The End Result :
As far as night skies go,I'm liking the result quite a lot. Next time I will do a proper Galaxy Nail post and not get distracted by pretty stars shining outside.
