notd | galaxy

This is Day 4 of MakeupSavvy's 15 Day Nail Challenge - Galaxy Nails. I decided to try and recreate the look of a nebula and of course lots of glitter for the stars!
I started off by painting my nails black and sponging on some white polish in a line where I wanted the nebula to be.
Then I sponged a yellow on top of the white, and a bit of pink too.
To blend the colours into the black, I also dabbed a bit of a navy blue colour on the edges of the nebula.
For the stars I used two nail polishes - one with some small pieces of silver, pink and blue glitter, and another for a few larger glitter pieces.

In case that was quite hard to follow, this video has a pretty similar technique to what I did.

  1. Ahh I was going to do this one, I thought it was later day though, rubbish! I might just do a galaxy type nail when I've got some time someday. Yours looks really great though!
