I used dark purple, blue and a dark metallic purple/pink. You can try using metallic nail polish or (concentrated) glitter nail polish, they should work nicely as well and give a shimmer finish.This nail art makes use of a sponge to dab on the colours so that it blends nicely.
- Paint a black base coat for the night sky.
- Paint some white on the makeup sponge and dab it onto your nail. You can dab the entire nail white or just portions of it. I did the entire nail for mine because the colours wouldn't show otherwise. I just regret not putting more white towards the edge of my cuticles.
- Using the colours you have chosen for your galaxy, paint them on the makeup sponge before transferring onto your nails. Spread the colours around and try to mix/blend them.
- I topped off mine with a transparent coat of glitter with stars. I bought this from sasa. thefaceshop also used to have one, but I'm not sure if they are still selling. I think this makes the galaxy effect prettier otherwise it'd look really plain.
I'm really glad I did this. There're so many other nail arts that I want to try as well. I've found a bunch of cool instagram nail artists to follow and this nail art website is worth checking out too.
Thanks for reading :)
