Galaxy Nails Tutorial!

21 September 2013

Hello there lovely's, i've got a new nail tutorial for you today! Luckily it went well this time as the last one i did went so terribly i didn't bother putting it up, i will attempt it again when i have a day when i have a lot of time and a LOT of patience! I've seen a few people with galaxy nails and i think it looks so good i decided i had to try it for myself, i am a lover of galaxy print as you will no if you saw my OOTN galaxy dress post. So if you fancy trying it for yourself keep reading...

What i used-
Base colour- Rimmel 800 Black Out,
White- BarryM Matt White,
Colours- Rimmel 809 Blue me Away, 180 Purple Pulse, 025 Strawberry Fizz.
Glitter- Rimmel 500 Disco Ball,
Top Coat- Essie Matt About You.
Models Own nail Art pen in white (can also use a cocktail stick or nail dotter)
Makeup sponge (sorry always forget to put something in the pic)

Step One- 
Paint two coats of the black polish, to get an even dark base. 

Step Two-
Take the sponge and dip it in the white nail polish and start to dab it onto the nails, you don't want to cover the entire nail just do a sort of strip, do it in different directions on different nails.

Step Three-
Take a dark colour like a navy blue and sponge that onto the nail either side of the white strip, it really doesn't have to be neat. 

Step Four-
Take a slightly lighter colour like a purple, and sponge that on in patches around the other colours.

Step Five- 
Sponge on some more white over the top and then sponge on a brighter colour like a pink or lilac.

Step Six-
The finishing touches, apply some glitter polish onto the black spaces on the nails. To make the stars use your nail art pen and draw little crosses on a few of the nails and make a few dots over the nails. 
And to finish add a topcoat to seal it all together, i used a matt topcoat as it gives a really interesting finish. 

This really is easy to do you don't have to be neat and precise to get a good result. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, have a go for yourself!
