Galaxy (Tutorial)

Galaxy Nails! 
I love space, so I am super in love with galaxy nails, and they are so easy to do, and they don't require any nail art tools, just a sponge which you can usually find in your house. (they are even easy to do with your non-writing hand!)

What you'll need:
  • Base Coat
  • Top Coat
  • Black Polish
  • Blue Polish
  • Green Polish
  • Orange Polish
  • Glitter Polish
  • A Sponge

Start by applying base coat.

Then paint all of your nails black.

Using a sponge (I an an art sponge but you can use a make-up sponge or a kitchen sponge), paint a small section of the sponge blue.

Then dab the blue onto the nail (not covering the whole nail).


Then repeat the sponging process with green and then orange, each time leaving some of the previous colour showing.

Then apply a glitter polish.

Finish with top coat.

Create the galaxies in different shapes and size on each nail.

Products used:
  • Base coat - Strong Adhesion by China Glaze
  • Top coat - Good to Go by Essie
  • Black - Onyx Black by Maybelline
  • Blue - Blueberry Ice Cream by Barry M
  • Green - Soft Green by Beauty Uk
