Galaxy nails were something (like marbled nails!) that I've always been intrigued with, but never tried before. I had an event last weekend that necessitated something special with my nails, so I decided to finally bust out a sponge and try this out.
I used Marc Jacobs New Wave as a base (any good navy would work), and then let it dry a little before sponging on the other colours. I had an old craft sponge (similar to the smallest one in this set) that I used to lightly layer the 'galaxy' colours. Julep Margit & Paulette both have a shimmer than I thought would work well and add dimension, while Butter London Diamond Geezer & Tart With a Heart added some foil & holographic glitter (like little twinkling stars ;). Chanel Taboo has a 'galaxy' feel all on it's own so I knew it would be great to add in, and finally Essie's Rock at the Top for just a few golden sparkles. What I love about this though is you can use what you already have! Blue, purple, silver, gold - anything in that combo would work well for this. Isn't that the best kind of nail art? ;)
ps, I've teamed up with some awesome ladies to host a GIVEAWAY on Instagram! There's a print from me, a $200 Anthropologie gift card, and a whole bunch more stuff for you to win! You can find all the details & how to enter right here :)
