Galaxy nails!

Monday, 16 April 2012

So the other day I created some cute galaxy print nails. I've been doing this style since last summer and thought now is the perfect time to recreate them!
Would you like to create some cute nails like this too? no sweat, follow these simple steps!

You will need:
- A piece of sponge
- A dark base colour, and some galaxy looking colours (I decided to go with orange, yellow and white) you will also need a thin brush white nail varnish (or a toothpick for the dots) and some glitter!
- Paper
- Top coat
- Nail varnish remover
- Cotton bud
Step 1
The first step is to paint your nails a dark base colour, I used nail paint by Barry M which is a navy blue shade (colour 155). Let your nails dry for 3 minutes.
Step 2
You will need your colours, paper and sponge for this step. 1) Using your piece of paper pour your chosen colours in seperate spaces (so they do not mix). Dab your sponge part in one of your colours, then dab slighty on your piece of paper until the sponge feels sticky and almost sticks to the paper. This is so that when the colour is applied it isn't applied too thick. Repeat with all colours and all nails until you have the 'galaxy effect'.
Step 3
Once you are done with step two, ensure your nails are slightly dry before adding the dots. You will then need to apply the glitter.
Step 4
Once you have followed through with all the steps add a top coat clean your nails/skin with the cotten bud and nail varnish remover and there you have it!

This look is great for a night out or day to day wear! I'm wearing this style right now and have had great feedback....let me know if you try this style using my steps :)
