Galaxy Nails


After almost exactly a year away from this blog, I'm back! My life has been super hectic, as I am now studying chemistry at my university and am also a pre-medical student. I just finished up finals and decided to treat myself with a manicure! I've seen galaxy nails lately, and I think they are just the coolest thing ever. I followed this tutorial over at 'Through the Wormhole' blog (link: http://attackedastorianails.blogspot.com/2011/01/quick-nebula-nail-art-tutorial.html); she had a great and easy to follow tutorial!

Some of my favorite polishes that I used as bases: China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic, Chelsea Kaleidoscope, and Orly Space Cadet (use this one as an accent).


The many nail polishes I used. Feel free to use any colors, the more the merrier! I cut up my make-up sponge into little pieces, so I could use each one for a different color. The colors I used as bases were the darker polishes, such as OPI Tease-y Does It. My accent colors were colors such as China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint and China Glaze White Out. I also used some sparkles, such as a Nfu Oh flakie polish and Orly Space Cadet.

Also, as you may have noticed, I am not currently using my lightbox. I actually recycled my last one after I moved out of my apartment last year, but luckily I have a bigger one at home that my sister's boyfriend had made for me. I hope to get back into photography as well!

The finished product :) 

I hope to be blogging more regularly again, but my courseload will be as hectic as ever next semester. Luckily, I get almost a month off from school for winter break!

Happy holidays!
