Turquoise Galaxies Nail Art

17 June 2013

Hi Everyone!

I am super excited for today's post! It is my first time creating galaxy nail art, I ended up creating two versions as I experimented with different colours. I will only be showing you one today and will save the other for a time when I am tight on time!

For this version, I used a lot blues and I LOVE the final look! Here's a picture...




I loved how easy it is to create this galaxy look! You basically start with a dark base colour and layer on other colours, glitters and shimmers using a sponge! I added a few dots to look like stars to complete the look!



To create this look:
  • I started with a coat of all in one base coat by essie 
  • I then applied one coat of I saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw by OPI, a dark blue creme. Yes, you read that right... just ONE coat. It won't be fully opaque but you will be layering a lot of other colours so it'll be impossible to see the bald spots. However, I did note that this polish is highly pigmented and it had almost perfect coverage with a medium-thick coat!
  • I then layered a lot of other colours using a sponge and added a few dots using blanc by essie.
  • I smoothed out the design and sealed in the nail art with a coat of Seche Vite!

Here is a list of the colours I used to sponge on the colours... there's no particular order since you just have to keep sponging until you're happy with the final look.
  • Hanging in the Balance by China Glaze - a deep turquoise blue creme
  • Can't Find My Czechbook by OPI - a dusty turquoise creme
  • in the cab-ana by essie - a bright aqua blue creme
  • Silver by Gosh - a bright silver foil
  • pure pearlfection by essie luxeffects top coat - a shimmery, pearly, iridescent top coat



Hope you enjoyed today's post! I am almost two thirds done this challenge, which means it's almost time for the nail based on inspirations!
