31DC2013: Day 19 - Galaxies

After three attempts, I can finally show you my galaxy nails!

I knew from the beginning that I wanted to do a pastel galaxy, of course inspired by The Nailasaurus. After attempting to follow this tutorial, and failing miserably (not because it wa s difficult but because I didn't have the proper colors), I decided to try pastel galaxy drips.

Once again I failed, and I thought I'd give it one last shot.

I'm so glad I did, I love how these turned out. I only wish I had a unicorn charm from Hex Nail Jewelry and it would've been perfect.

To create this pastel galaxy, I started with Zoya Blu as a base. I then sponged on, with tiny bits of make up sponge, OPI Pink Friday, OPI Planks A Lot, and Julep Taylor until I was happy. I added some sparkle with a glitter polish from Forever21 and added stars with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.

I'm not sure if I want to tackle a water marble tonight, but I probably should since I'm going to see the Ravens game tomorrow and won't have tons of time to continue playing catch up.


  1. Haha, pastel galaxies are really hitting the trend around the blogging world! Not a bad thing though, I'm surprised I love all of the beautiful galaxies popping around my feed! :D Anyway, I think these turns out really unique and I wouldn't have guessed it was due to the lack of colours! The colours goes so well together! I sure am loving how they sparkles! Great job with making most of what you have ;) Plus only great artist could pull off the lack of colours by rocking the colours they have!! ♥

  2. These are beautiful! they're very unique (in a good way, of course)! I love the sparkly topper!
