Galaxy Nails

Today I did my nails by following this youtube video by Miss Jen Fabulous who does amazing designs and has a lovely blog too which can be seen here. I have seen galaxy nails done in a few different styles and loved them so decided to give it a go! For my first attempt I am quite pleased with them but I am a massive perfectionist and I wish I'd blended them better and used different glitters too. Need to buy a holographic micro glitter and chunkier one. I painted black on as a base and dabbed on pink, blue and purple nail varnishes using a sponge. I then added a silver glitter on top but like I said I think it would have looked better with holographic glitter of two different sizes like what was used in the tutorial! Think I'm going to get Models Own 'Juicy Jules'.  I also added on a few small heart shaped gems, which I found in my makeup bag full of nail varnish, I thought I'd put them on my thumb and on my ring finger, just makes them look a bit different and is an alternative to larger particles of glitter!  Hope you like them!


What do you think!?

    1. Thank you!! It was quite easy actually, once you've done the black you just have to dab on each colour and blend them in lightly. Didn't actually take long at all. I used a bit of cardboard to put a blob of the different nail colours one by one and put the sponge in that rather than painting nail varnish on to the sponge directly! Have a look at Jen's tutorial linked above and that'll help lots :) x
