31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Day 19 - Galaxies

Yay!! I've been looking forward to this day since I first saw Painting Outside the Lines challenge!!


I have been wanting to try Galaxy nails for a long time, and just never have!! I am a sci-fi geek, I grew up watching Star Trek, I can't help it... I just love it!! Here's what I came up with...


I think the most visually interesting part about space is all the color, so I decided to do a different color on each nail!! I started with my Nina Pro Black and used my new Sally Hansen White on to dab on the shape of my galaxies and add my stars (I wanted to add my stars fist, so the color of the galaxies overlapped them... seemed more realistic). I started with a lighter color and the added some interest with a slightly darker color. Here's the breakdown:

Pointer (blue)
FingerPaints Blue Raspberry Taffy
Barielle's Blackened Bleu

Middle (Purple)
Anise Grape Escape
Barielle's Jess' Champagne Toast

Ring (Pink)
Sinful Colors Bikini
Color Club (unknown name - same one I used in my cupcakes)

Pinky (Greenish-blue)
Sinful Colors Gorgeous
Orly Halley's Comet (seemed appropriate)


I topped is off with Wet n Wild Kaleidoscope... because, well I could! Haha... :D

I really like it!! I will definitely be trying this one again :)

Dont forget to head over and show the other girls some love!! Tomorrow is water marbling... cant say I'm looking forward to it! Haha
