As you are all probably aware by now, I'm taking part in Makeup Savvy's 15 Day Nail Challenge. It's a lot of fun, and today's theme is Galaxy! I've never done galaxy nails before, but I tried my best, and here are the results:
This is the only manicure I've done where I wanted to take multiple pictures. Ok, my nails aren't in the best state, and my cleanup's not so good, but I think these nails are a lot of fun.
Here's what I used:
First, I applied a layer of single-coater Model's Own In The Navy (£5) as a base. I then applied a coat of one of my favourite layering polishes, Max Factor's Fantasy Fire (£3.99). This added a lovely duochrome effect and made the blue seem deeper and sparklier. I then tore up pieces of a triangular makeup sponge, And used this to apply small smudges of Barry M's Blue Moon (£2.99) and Avon's Viva Pink (currently on sale for £3.50)*. Then I added (again with the sponge) two different 'starry' glitters - Model's Own Disco Mix (£5) and Model's Own Juicy Jules (£5).
I finished with some larger white dots to represent stars using Topshop's Nail Art Pen in Frozen (£6.50). Then a topcoat and I was done!
