31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Galaxy Nails!

Deborah's manicure - A cool toned galaxy

Hi loves! Woah, I am very excited for today's theme - Galaxy Nails! I never even tried this manicure style and now I did, I want to try some more haha. Because a lot of bloggers are having fun with the 31DNAC through out September, I browsed some of my favorites for inspiration for today. I found my perfect  example over at Chalkboard Nails, I immediately loved the cool toned look of these and started to look for polishes to recreate this look.

My base is 1 coat of a england Camelot, a lovely black creme. Then, after it dried, I first sponged China Glaze Dessert Sun (brownish color). My second sponge color is Essence Hard To Resist (dark, sparkly blue), and the third is Bondi Blue Skies (soft blue color). I filled in the unsponged parts with China Glaze Fairy Dust. The white dots are H&M Love at First Sight.




I really like how these came out and was very proud when the first thing my boyfriend said after looking at these was "hey, it looks like a galaxy!". Mission accomplished!



What do you think of my first attempt at galaxy nails? Tell me in the comments!

Loqi's manicure - A blurple galaxy manicure

Hi Guys! I really like galaxy nails, but I hardly ever do them so I was really excited for today's challenge! I abselutely love what Deborah did, such a nice combination of colours!

I myself went for a combination of blue and purple. I started with a base of Wet 'n wild Black crème. Then I sponged some nebulah like areas with P2 Virgin (a very transparent white) to make the next colours more vibrant. Then I sponged P2 Call me (purple), China Glaze For Audrey (Tiffany blue) and Herome Frankfurt (marine) over the edges of the white, leaving some bits untouched. To finish it of I sponged over all the polishes with a glass flecked polish in corresponding colours: Orly Winter wonderland (white), Orly Lunar eclipse (blue) and Kiko 278 Violet orchid microglitter (purple). As a last touch I added some stars with white and Voilà!

I hope you guys like our galaxy nails! And see you soon!

Stay tuned for challenge day 20: Water Marble Nails!

  4. Fantastic job, both of you! Much more subtle than my approach, which is just to throw up glitter all over the whole thing. Beautiful!
