TGIF: 31 Day Challenge 2013 Day 25: Galaxies

31 Day Challenge 2013 (relaxed version) Day 25: Galaxies plus it is TGIF: Thank Goodness, Indy Indie Friday! This is one of the days I was excited to re-visit! I love this style! And yes, I managed to use three different Indies! Woot woot!

***Picture heavy!*** I really wanted to show you the process of this, since I hated it for a bit.

I started out with one coat of Cult Nails Time Traveler. A beautiful deep blue.

I used a makeup sponged to sponge on Cult Nails Let Me Fly. This blue is stunning with amazing shimmer! My little nebula is born!

I decided to add some purple and thought that Flormar U06 would be perfect! It's a shimmery duochrome!

Next I sponged some Essence Wall of Fame, a shimmery yellow. It was here that I really started to hate how it was looking. But I still had a few more polishes to add and was curious to see if I could save it. My nebula looks like junk :(

I added Cult Nails Hypnotize Me. A shimmery green top coat. This is my third Indie on this mani! I use this to tone down the brightness of the yellow.

This is a slightly blurry photo to show you how Cult Nails Hypnotize Me just seems to glow! Love it!

I then decided to soften the edges of my nebula by using Flormar U08, another shimmer duochrome! Ugh, still wasn't too thrilled with this at this point.

I then sponged on China Glaze Pixie Dust into my negative spaces to create the tiny stars. I used Milani White on the Spot to make my slightly bigger stars. Ah, that's what it was missing! I liked how this turned out but I still wasn't super satisfied. Something else was needed. What could it be?

Ah yeah! China Glaze Matte Magic to the rescue! I love how this made the mani deeper and richer. Bah! :) You wanna see something cool?

An ever-so-slightly blurry photo to show that the shimmers of all those amazing polishes are still visible through Matte Magic! Oh yeah! Boo-ya! Mysteries of the deep unfold! :)

The Indies I used today were Cult Nails: Time Traveler, Let Me Fly, and Hypnotize Me. These can all be purchased at the Cult Nails Shop here.

Don't forget to explore the other galaxies with the other ladies!
