Galaxy nails

Hola chicas! Hoy les traigo un nailart de uñas galácticas que hice. Sin embargo, fue casi imposible sacarle fotos decentes, por eso solo hay una en este post. Es muy sencillo hacer este nailart, sólo se necesita una esponja cortada en pequeños trozos para ir aplicando el color más precisamente (yo usé una esponja de cocina brutalmente mutilada con una tijera jajaja). Creo que la parte más díficil es elegir qué colores de esmalte usar. Espero les guste, gracias por leer :)

Hi girls! Today I bring you my first galaxy nails manicure. I'm really happy with how this turned out, even though I'm already thinking of ways to improve them for the next time I do one.

Galaxy nails are basically made by sponging several different polishes and adding white dots, or glitter (or both, in my case) to create a cosmic-like art.

Sadly, this was impossible to photograph, I don't know why, so you only get one shot of this. Sorry! :(

For the base I painted two coats of Essence Galactic Black, a shimmery black from their old collection. Then over it I sponged several colors to create the nebulas, always starting with Finger Paints Papier Maché so the other colors would show better:

Essence Passion for Fashion and Jordana Silky Purple for the purple nebulae
Essence Viva la Green and A-England Galahad for the green nebulae

Finally, I added some dots with a dotting tool and Papier Maché and topped it all off with a sparkly holographic glitter top coat (Etienne Disco Glitter, which is a mix of micro and hex holo glitter, similar to China Glaze Techno).

Have you tried galaxy nails? Link me your manis in the comments, I'd love to see what you've done. Thanks for reading! :)
