Guardians of the Galaxy

YES! Finally I have done it, I've managed to create galaxy nails that I'm actually happy with. Ok, they're still not perfect, but so much better than past attempts!

I'm not 100% sure what I changed in this attempt, other than to try to simplify it a little. I also used a black glittery polish from Miss Sporty (it doesn't seem to have a name!) as the base colour which definitely helped. I then blended the colours on the sponge first and printed that onto my nails, rather than blending each colour individually. I stuck to as few polishes as possible (although I still used loads!) and a main colour scheme of blue, with just a touch of pink thrown in. This was the first time I added dots and crosses using a white nail art pen and I was really surprised how well this small touch brought it all together into 'galaxy' rather than just a load of colour splodges!

I don't have that much to say about these nails, as I'm sure you've all seen galaxy before. I will, however, encourage you to give them a go as they're great fun! It might take a couple of attempts to get right (as it did for us) but the results are awesome. This mani was so glittery and eye catching, plus it's something that's easy-ish to create on both hands as there's not much detailing involved!

Have you tried galaxy nails yet? We'd love to see your designs!
