Makeup Savvy 15 Day Nail Challenge Day 4: Galaxy

Hi!

I've only done galaxy nails once before, and it was a disaster. Looking back now, I don't know how I could even put the pictures up, it was just gick. This time was better! Here are the polishes I used:

I don't know what happened with the flash, camera does not like polish at 8am!
I used:

Essence Colour & Go - Underwater (first version)
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - Midnight in NY
Catrice - Heavy Metallilac
Stargazer - 307 (Dupe for Orly Space Cadet)
Angelica - Boogie Nights
Essie - Blanc (mini)
Barry M - Lemon Ice-Cream

I started off with two coats of Midnight in NY (much the same polish as Catrice I Wear My Sunglasses At Night) and then sponged on the rest. I added some white dots and then topped with random blobs of the Angelica glitter.










In hindsight I probably wouldn't have bothered with the Angelica, but I do like it overall.

Check Fee's post here for details on how to join in with the challenge.

    1. Thank you! This is easy, it's just sponging, I need lots of practice with more complicated ones :)x

  2. My post is coming up a bit later on, after seeing yours I wish I had done more stars. Mine is a bit too sporadic. I like the stamping effect, you have improved since your last attempt!

    1. It's simples! Sponge the colours on one by one and whack a bit of glitter on the top, galaxies are supposed to be wild and scattered :) I spent ages looking for that Stargazer, got it from glitterstore.co.uk x
