Purple Galaxy

Yes, another galaxy design! On Twitter I created a poll asking which nail art should I do, galaxy, video game controller (via stamping), or rain drops (via stamping).

No one answered. So I'm going to do all three! This was the first one I wanted to get out because I filmed a tutorial for it - originally for instagram but I also uploaded a slower version on YouTube. I used Sinful Colors "Karnival" for the base and although it's a lovely royal purple, it is very watery and made a mess everywhere. Next, I sponged on a white in a diagonal direction, followed by sponging some pink, then purple. I topped everything with Fairy Dust by China Glaze, then free-handed some "stars" and twinkles. I used tutorial from her instagram. See the video below!

Rapunzel Design

Following up with my Sinful Color's haul, I used one of the polishes - "King Size." It's this gorgeous purple with gold shimmer throughout. Know what purple and gold remind me of? Rapunzel of course! My favorite Disney Princess from my favorite movie - Tangled. You guys know I do a lot of Rapunzel related nails...this is no exception! This is basically just a recreation of CutePolish's super old tutorial where she included pink/purple stripes but I opted to just use the corset top as an accent nail.

King Size dries to a satiny finish...not matte, not glossy...almost like a taffy look to it. I applied a glossy top coat over everything.
