My Galaxy/Nebula nails

Hey Ladies!  So I've been doing my nails a lot lately because I only have a month left before I go back to school so Im doing all the nail deigns that has been on my to do list.  Dont worry, I wont stop blogging completely once I start school.. I would maybe have time to do my nails once a week.

Anyway last night I was browsing on the internet and I saw this blog tutorial on how to do nebula nails.  I then took off my nail polish that I had on that moment and started to prep my nails for this design.  I just follow the steps of the blogger but everyone's nebula or galaxy nails will turn out differently.

I did my left hand first like always and I like/disliked it.  I was glad I had another hand I can practice on because it would such a pian to take off all the hard work just to start over again.  So when I did the right hand I was liking it more.  I didnt add as much layers to my right hand so my nail polish didn't feel as thick.  I hope you guys like this!

Here's the website I looked at:  attackedastorianails

I used a bunch of nail polishes to achieve this look but I can roughly tell you want I used.

  • Base coat: Any dark nail polish with shimmers: I used sally hanen- Midnight in NY but you can also use OPI my private jet but I use this color to do the sponging instead.
  • you need a makeup sponge to do all this look. You sponge on the polish randomly.
  • some baby blue color .. less in your face color than white. 
  • yellow
  • pink/red ( duo chrome would look sooo cool)
  • blue
  • Orly Space Cadet ( This gave a really cool out of space effect) You could also use Hard Candy Beatles
  • Then next I took a dotting tool and dotted white dots randomly to act like stars.

I hope you guys enjoy this look. I provided a bunch of photos of both my nebula nails.

                                                         Left Hand

I hope you guys enjoy once again!  Thank you for taking your time and reading and checking out my Blog.
