Pink Galaxy Nails

Hello there guys!! The end of January is here, it came a mixture of quickly and not quickly at all. I guess it was a combination of the work and some of the fun I had. And happy Chinese New Year!! I'll have my Chinese New Year design up soon. It's pretty cute.
This design has been on my to-do list for a while and I got round to doing it really. I wasn't really sure where I was going with this one and there were moments of "this is really not working" but certain polish magically managed to save those moments and the whole nail art look. It's nice when polishes can do that.

Here is a pink galaxy which I'm pretty sure would never exist. I really really like the look of this and I couldn't stop staring when I had this on. I think it was all the glitter. Also it's pink so I can't not love it. I made it matte for the bant though I think I liked it equally both ways.

I had my pink base and basically I went insane with dabbing pink in "nebula" shapes (it's in bunny ears cause it totes wasn't in nebula shapes). Then I went insane with the glitter and this happened. I don't have much method if you couldn't tell.

Base: M&S - Peony and Barry M - Fairy Lights
Light pink: Barry M - Dragon Fruit and Barry M - Matt White (wasn't needed)
Hot pink: OPI - Charged Up Cherry
Dark pinks: Barry M - Fuchsia and Color Club - Wing Fling
Pink foil: Barry M - Boots Xmas LE 2012 B
Glitter: OPI - Minnie Style
Flakie type stuff (great description me): OPI - I Lily Love You and M&S - Light Mix
Saviours of the galaxy (SEE WHAT I DID THERE???): Barry M - Princess and Nails Inc - Sweets Way
Seriously these polishes lifted the whole design, the golden shimmer in Princess was something spectacular and the blue glitter in Sweets Way are awesome. I was trying not to use other colours but the blue glitter was fantastic here.

 Thank you very much for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day!! :)


  1. Hmm, I don't think it turned out as galaxy-like as you imagined. But I do love the outcome nevertheless! I am in same opinion as you. The blue glitter bits really helped pull this whole look together :) Hehe!

    1. Yeah it isn't really a galaxy the way I wanted it to be, but it's hard when the only colour is pink. Thanks!! It's not your typical galaxy but I like it that way, blue glitter saves everything, that should be a thing :)
