I love the look of galaxy nails. Plus they’re fun to do. It’s been a while since I’ve done one, so I was excited to give it another try.
The polishes I used for this manicure were:
- Mary Kay Nail Lacquer in Blue Knight — dark background.
- Color Institute in gold (no official name on it.)
- Color Institute sparkles (no official name on it.)
- Revlon in I’m Electro.
- Revlon in Spidey Sense.
- Revlon in Orchid.
- Pure Ice in Get in Line.
- Pure Ice in Over You.
- Salley Hansen Diamond Flash Top Coat
These didn’t turn out exactly like I imagined in my head, but I think it’s because the polishes I used were very pigmented, and I was a little too heavy-handed. I wanted to use metallic polishes, because I’ve never tried using them for galaxy nail art before. Never the less, I loved the sparkle that it give my galaxies! And even though I wasn’t sure if they looked a lot like the galaxies I wanted them to, but I did get lots of compliments which always makes me feel proud of the manicures I’ve done.
What do you think of galaxy nail art?
And what to you think of my attempt at metallic galaxies?
