Pastel Galaxy Nails

Tuesday 3 March 2015

Hey Guys!

I'm back today with some more nail art.

I LOVE galaxy nail art and I am really pleased with how these turned out!
Now, if you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen that these are a recreation of the very first nail art I posted on my account. 

Wanna see? They make me laugh so much now looking back:

I was so proud of these at the time... I mean they aren't too bad but I would like to think that I have improved a lot since then... picture quality, clean up, cuticle care, nail art quality. 

Now today's nails:

I really love doing then and now type posts and seeing improvement - I'm really pleased with these!

So, now an explanation of how I created them:

These are the polishes used in the mani, labelled above

Other tools used during this mani, again labelled above. 

I started with a base of +Essie UK 'Fashion Playground' as seen above.

Then I applied 'Liquid Palisade' a liquid tape around my nails (for easy cleanup) as pictured above.

I then sponged +OPI Products 'My Vampire is Buff' in various curved 'C' and 'S' shapes.

Following the same lines as in the previous photo. I First sponged +OPI Products 'Can't Find my Czechbook' and then +Essie UK 'Lilacism'. I used an eye shadow applicator for this for more control.

I then sponged +Essie UK 'Madison Ave-hue' again following the same curves using the eye shadow applicator. 

I sponged some extra polish in areas where I felt it was needed and then removed the +Kiesque, Inc. Liquid Palisade from around my nails. 

I applied +chinaglazeofficial 'Fairy Dust' over the top.

Finally, I pained the stars using white acrylic paint and a thin paint brush and a dotting tool.

Here is the final result!

I also created a video tutorial which is up on my Youtube channel - I will link it here:

Hope you guys liked these!
