31 Day Challenge: Day 19, Galaxies


Captain's log, Stardate 01192012. We've enter into a challenge like none other in the universe, they call it the 31 Day Challenge. It is a common occurrance among the lifeforms here who are peculiar and groom their nails into creative designs and artworks. Ok, ok, I'll stop. Except let me add one more thing, set you faces (get it phasers) to stunned as you glance upon my works of art! :)



I know you what you are thinking, haven't I seen this picture before? Nope. I promise, this is a new picture, but it is Orly Androgynie again. When I used it for my Glitter Mani I noticed it had a gorgeous galaxy-like quality. So I decided to use this as my base for my galaxy nails! Emma, from Manicurity mentioned that she was going to use it too! :) Let the stunned faces commence.......


Ta-daa! My galaxy nails! I have to admit I was a bit nervous doing these because I had never attempted them before. But they are super easy and so striking! I'm a little in love with mine! This is my first time doing them and they turned out perfect! I used China Glaze Electric Pineapple as the base of the nebula (?). I sponged it on. Over that I added Essie Your Hut or Mine, also sponged on. I then took Ulta Blue for You and sponged it on the edges of my nebula to fade it in the base. I used Color Club French Tip as my bigger stars and Orly Prisma Gloss Silver as my stars by the thousands.

What do you think? Have you done galaxy nails yet? If you haven't, you need to! So much fun! And now......more pictures!




This last picture is taken under artificial light. I love them! I don't want to take it off to do water marble tomorrow!
