This Challenge made me feel like I was listening to the open credits/narration of the Twilight Zone. 🙂
I used This Tutorial as a guide for my Galaxy nails and it was very helpful! I also did a picture tutorial below. I absolutely loved doing this challenge, not only did it dry super quick because you are sponging, but you don’t have to be perfect on each nail. Part of the look is the blending and making each nail look like parts of the galaxy.
Polishes you will need: a Base Coat, a Top Coat, Black, Blue, Yellow, White, Purple and a glittery Top coat.
I used, L to R, “OPI- Top Coat” “Zoya – Charisma”, “Essie – Aruba Blue” , “Sinful Colors – Black on Black” , “Ulta – Cream of the Crop” , “Essie – Shrine of the Tides” and “Milani – white” and lastly I used my “Sally Hanson – White Nail Art Pen”(not shown “Nail-aid Peeling Nail” as a base)
Once my base coat was applied, per the tutorial, I painted one coat of my “Black on Black”. Once that was dry, I ripped up a make up triangle sponge into 3-4 pieces. I put a few drops of “Milani – white” on a paper plate and dipped it in long ways, and once dabbing off the little extra made a line diagonally on each nail. This doesn’t have to be perfect, in fact you want it a little un-even and spread out so that it will show when you sponge the other colors.
The next step is to do the same thing but with yellow, put a strip of yellow in middle of the white.
Next you do same step as 1 & 2 but with purple, I chose the “Zoya – Charisma” as its brighter and kind of neon to add some vibrance. With the purple you do the same thing by using a sponge piece on the long end but this time you go down the diagonal line on either side just outside the white and kind of blend in.
The next step was blue, and again I used a shinier, blue to add more depth, my “Essie – Aruba Blue” with this one you can use a corner or a line again from the sponge but this time you just dab in all areas to add some blue to the “sky”
Next is your stars, you make different size dots, for this I added another drip of my white polish and used a toothpick, also used the Nail Art Pen for some.
Lastly you add a shimmery overlay. I used my “Essie Shrine of the Tides” In the tutorial she used an opaque purple glitter polish. Beware, I have sponged polish all over my fingers, not pretty! 🙂
