Galaxy Nails

I love the interwebs! If not for this handy tool, I would find it hard to come up with new ideas for my nails. This is especially so for the following creation, galaxy nails. It's not new, though, I had not tried it until now, thinking that it looked too difficult. Enter Youtube tutorials, and now I have my own Galaxy Nails.

Ok, to complete this look took a few steps, but you know me, of course it was easy!
After applying Orly Bonder base coat, I applied two coats of navy blue, it's Lancome, but I forgot the name. Unfortunately I had to ditch the polish because it was beginning to get gluggy, I wish I had used it more over the years, which sadly, will most likely be the story of almost all of my polishes :( The first world problem of owning too many polishes.
Anyway, once my nails were completely dry, I sponged Maybelline Color Show in Porcelaine Party, Borghese purple polish and Sally Hansen HD in Digital. I only dabbed a small amount of each in random places on my nails.
Because I seem to be hopeless with brushes, I then proceeded to use a toothpick to draw stars. For a little extra sparkle, I applied a crystal shimmer polish over my nails, then finished with my staple, Seche Vite top coat.




Ok, I think I've posted enough pics, but I loved the end result, can you tell? LOL
