Today's prompt was galaxy nails and, to be honest, I wasn't pumped about them. Before I started blogging, I had done a couple of galaxy nails and really liked them, but they're just kind of meh now. Until I saw Kayla Shevonne post this on her blog and fell in love all over again.
I accidentally covered too much of the blue streak with the other polishes so they're more blended and less galaxy-looking, but I really liked them anyway. The original post for this look (here) did the little stars by flicking acrylic paint on the nail with a toothbrush. It's slightly messy, but I liked the mess on my fingers so I left them there
I started with a base of Illamasqua Muse and added a Mattese Elite shimmery polish (doesn't have a label) to mimic the look of Orly Haley's Comet, which I didn't have.
I used a shitload of polishes for this, but I remember using Milani Mint Candy, Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet and Co-Bolt Blue, China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise and Spoiled Use Protection (aka Sinful Colors Nail Junkie).
Like I said, I blended the colors a bit too much, but I still kind of liked the look. I definitely recommend you check out both Kayla's post and the original post because they're amazingly pretty. The original also has a video tutorial you can check out if you're interested. I also know I have a couple of pictures laying around of the first galaxy mani I did before my blogging days and, if you guys are interested, I'll edit this post later when I find the pic!
