Erica's Nails & More February Nail Art Challenge! Day 1: GALAXY NAILS

Hello!

Fun news! I'm participating in the February Nail Art Challenge put on by the fabulous Erica from Erica's Nails & More!



Today is the first day and the challenge is Galaxy Nails! I know people say there is no "right or wrong" way to do Galaxy Nails. But mine always end up looking smudgy and very UN-space-like. Anyway here is what I came up with!


Don't laugh!! It really was my best efforts! I tried these a couple of times and this was definitely the best outcome.

I used GOSH Nero as my base. Nero is a fabulous one coat black. I sponged with OPI Alpine Snow, HITS HK Mint, Joe Fresh Fluo Blue, OPI Koala Berry, & a-England Avalon. I topped the whole thing with OPI Last Friday Night for some sparkle and smoothed it all one with g&g HK Girl topcoat.

Keeping with the theme of untrieds.. I used OPI Last Friday Night for the first time. Why did I wait so long to use it??? Its PERFECT for layering! 

I hope you liked my efforts and be sure to check out the other awesome nail art from the challenge!!

  1. This is perfect :) I agree with the "there is no right or wrong to galaxy nails" because there isn't! When in doubt, do the "husband test" - show him your nails and ask what it looks like. If he guesses right, that's awesome!! If he guesses wrong, he knows nothing about art ;)

    1. Thanks Erica!!
      Hahah I totally just asked both my mom and my sister! My sister said "Looks like space!!!" and my mom said "Is it abstract?" So I am going with my sisters answer and saying that this is a success!!! :)
