Another week begins! After today, there are only 10 days left in this challenge!! What will I do next month?!
Back to today. I chose galaxy nails. I haven't done them in ages. These are another example of Beginner's Luck - the first time I did them, they turned out, like, perfect. I've practiced them since, but they've never been quite as good! Here, look, over the summer I even did a galaxy nail wheel (I used to practice a lot on nail wheels).
So I thought I should give them another go. I started with 2 coats of Innisfree Midnight Black. I love this polish! I've posted about it before HERE. It's almost like galaxy nails in a bottle - lots of holo glitter, and little bronze and gold hexes that could be planets lol. I couldn't resist another pic.
Once I had done that, I went back and sponged a little bit of Barry M SLE 2012 A (catchy!) which is a pale blue glittery foil. I'll show you it another day because it is pretty! But I still wasn't done. I added a coat of Butter London Frilly Knickers, a fine holographic glitter. You can really see it in the photos, which I'm happy about! (check out my thumb!) I dotted on a few stars in Alpine Snow, and I was done!
I'll be honest, I didn't love this on my nails. It just looked messy. However something magic happened in the pictures and it looks much better! I think it looks quite cool. The colours seem to work together, which I'm happy about, and Frilly Knickers is just gorgeous! I bought it in the January sales with a matching lipgloss (meh) for £5, and it's been sitting there untried ever since! It's like holographic dust, and it has (at least temporarily) curbed my lust for spectraflair a little. Prepare to see lots of manicures featuring this polish lol.
Tomorrow is either wings or outlines. The choice I have genuinely struggled with the most!
Remember to check out everyone else's lovely nails. I'm hoping to see lots of galaxies!
