So ages ago I did a galaxy nail tutorial (link) and it was requested by quite a few of you that I made some more nail tutorials. I know I've taken my time but I'd lost my mojo a bit. But I'm happy to say it's back and I now have a few ideas stored in my memory bank to share with you guys. And I promise they're better than this one - I'm not overly happy with this one in all honesty, but they do look a lot better in real life! Anyway I hope the tutorial is helpful!
What did I use?
ELF Nail Polish - Dark Purple Glitter
17 Holo Nail Polish
17 Holo Nail Polish
Bourjois 1 Seconde Gel Polish - Bleu Water
MUA Nail Quake - Silver (this is a crackle but used for small areas it's fine!)
Models Own Nail Polish - Freak Out!
NYC Expert Last Nail Polish - Classy Glassy
Small Dotting Tool
Paint you nails all over with a night sky colour, I used ELF's Dark Purple Glitter, but go for a black or deep navy if you want!
Using the small dotting tool (tooth picks with just about do the job if you don't have any!) draw some stripes and dots on your nails in a kind of firework pattern. I went with a silver/blue theme. But I think gold, red and orange would also look really nice. I used the dotting tool by dripping a drop of the polish onto a scrap piece of paper and dipping the dotting tool into it from there. It's helpful to have a cotton pad on hand to wipe it off between colours!
I think this is where I ruined my patient work. But actually it has made me fall in love with the Models Own polish I used as a top coat. That glitter is insane! Anyway after apply a glitter coat (or not!) seal with a clear polish to hold it in and voila!
I suggest you don't use a top coat as intense as I did if you want to see the designs you've made! But I promise future nail tutorials will be better! And as always if you had any requests let me know and I'll get practicing and come up with something pretty for you! Thanks for stopping by, Hannah
