MSMD Monday: Galaxy Nails!

Hello!

Today for Monkey-See-Monkey-Do Monday I decided to finally try my hand at galaxy nails. I fell in love with this look back before I even discovered nail stamping--my niece linked me a tutorial of it, and it was beautiful. Here is the most recent version I've seen; you can see it by clicking here.

Here is my version of the galaxy nails look. I wanted to go for a more purple look, but I think I took it a little too pink (this is what happens when you only have two pinks to choose from):

To make them, I started with a base of Orly's Galaxy Girl (seriously, how could I not?). On top of it, I sponged Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Beige Blast in a swirl across the nail; then I sponged LA Colors Tropical Breeze over it, covering most of it except here and there; then I sponged China Glaze's Flirty Tankini down the center of the purple, to give it depth.

Then I covered the full nail with China Glaze's Fairy Dust, and while that was drying, I used a dotting tool to add some random stars in white. In my opinion, that was too stark, so I covered most of them with Pure Ice's Silver Mercedes. Next time I'll use that to start with. :)

I do love this look, and I want to try it in different colors--next time I'm going to try blue and purple.

Hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by. Please check out the other ladies who participated in MSMD monday, shown below. :)
