Hello, my lovelies!
It’s rainy day today in DC, and I can’t do any yard work, so I’m doing nails? Yep.
I’ve been meaning to do galaxy nails for a couple of weeks so I decided today’s the day! This is definitely a mani that requires time, as it involves layering polish.
So, onward we go! First, we start off with a black base. I recently got Nevermore by Cult nails, hailed as a one coat black polish. No joke, it really is! I did two coats anyway. It also dries pretty quick, and applied super smoothly.
I did my right hand first for practice, and I think it looks more like the galaxy nail pics I see around the web. The left hand I experimented a bit more, thinking I knew wear to improve on the right hand. Hmm. Not sure that was a brilliant idea. I think I got the sponging too wide. I used Milani White On the Spot, an unknown neon yellow 2 way pen, Sinful Colors Aquamarine and Neon Fusion, and Orly Tiara.
Right Hand - sponging is more narrow, and I used toothpick dots of white for stars, and concentrated the Orly Tiara (the silver glitter) over the colors more.
Left hand – the sponging went on wider and thicker, as did the Orly Tiara, and it feels more uneven.
So, I like both but I think the right hand is more what I had in mind. Which do you like better?
