Relaxed 31DC Week 19: Galaxy Nails

Greetings All!

I've been a bit absent this week, but I'm back in time for Double Challenge Friday! Later on I'll have some nerdy nails for you, but right now, galaxy nails for the relaxed 31dc!

I love galaxy nails - they were one of the first nail art techniques I learned, along with leopard print and butterfly wings. I always think I've messed them up - the wrong colors, or the wrong shape - but when they're all done and finished, they always look better than I thought they would! They're kind of...difficult to ruin lol. Plus I always think they look quite impressive.







You get bonus pictures of my left hand! Woot!







I used a heck of a lot of polishes for this one! Let's see, W7 Black, OPI Alpine Snow, The 'It' Colour, Koala-Bear-y, and Austintatious Turquoise, Barry M Key Lime, Blue Grape and Spring Green, 2 unnamed Beauty UK Purples, a creme and a shimmer, Revlon Varnished and Butter London Frilly Knickers. Phew!

Next week's theme is watermarbling. Hopefully I can pull it off!

In the meantime, check out some more galaxy nails!

    1. Thank you!

      It did look a bit ropey when I was putting the colours on - it's the glitter and sparkle that saved it!

      Yes, the glitter really makes it - without the sparkle it was very flat and dull.

      Ugh, don't. Every day I don't break one is a miracle! I really should file them down, but I just can't bear to do it!

  4. This is so pretty!!! I still haven't tried this yet. I will add it to my try it list. I love the addition of the green I don't think I have ever seen galaxy nails with the green but it definitely creates more beauty in this mani!
