Galaxy Nails

I've been wanting to paint these for awhile and now I've got around to doing them! I found a super simple tutorial that I used and will post it at the end of this post. They were not incredibly time consuming either! And I love how they turned out.

Basically, you just paint your nails black, then gently sponge on the galaxy colors, one by one, so they overlay enough to create a milky way effect. The big white dots are supposed to represent bigger stars, but this is not necessary. In fact, I think it looked a lot better BEFORE I added the dots. The smaller stars are displayed thanks to China Glaze's Fairy Dust, but really any micro glitter should work for this.

Here is a link to the tutorial I used: Galaxy Nail Tutorial
The only polish I used that was the exact same was Fairy Dust. I improvised my colors to match hers.
The colors I used were Sally Hansen's Black Out for the base color, Blue It, The Real Teal, and Plum Power, Pure Ice's Not Now and Fairy Godmother for the galaxy effect, Sinful Color's Snow Me White for the stars, and China Glaze's Fairy Dust to top it with.
