Today’s challenge of the 31 Day nail art challenge is to do galaxy nails. OK so this may sound a bit scary because this nail art looks very complex (just like our galaxy) but in reality it’s not that difficult. Just a little patience is needed here. Also I would suggest galaxy nail art for fall/winter 2013,it’s just perfect! Lets begin!
Products used for this nail art:
1. Loreal color riche black swan nail polish.
2. VOV grey nail polish.
3. Viviana nail enamel- yellow
4. Viviana nail enamel metallic brown.
5. Cheap turquoise glitter polish.
6. Revlon color stay top coat.
7. Ranara base coat.
8. Lakme absolute nude glow gel nail color.
Apply ranara base coat to protect your natural nails. Don’t miss out on this step especially when you are dealing with dark nail polishes.
Step One: Paint your nails black using the Loreal color riche black swan nail polish. Allow it to dry.
Step Two: Using a sponge, dab VOV grey nail polish similarly to what we do in gradient nails. (check gradient nails tutorial here) However here we just dab on little portions of the nail.
Step Three: Now using another sponge dab some yellow nail polish over the grey. And some metallic brown polish around it. Allow it to dry. (Tip: Using tweezers to hold the sponge makes the application easier)
Step Four: Using a toothpick dipped in Lakme Nude Glow Gel color, randomly make many tiny dots. Make a few large dots too. These will make the stars.
Step Five: Apply glitter polish over the entire nail for a starry and shiny look.You can use clear glitter too! I used what I have 😉
Finish with a top coat to seal in your design!Applying is top coat is essential because it will make your nail art smoother !
