Galaxy Nails

Picture 013

Hello, again! I know that these nails have been in style – a new updo! These are actually pretty simple.


-black nails polish

-white nail polish

-shades of blue nail polish

-dark pink or shimmery red nail polish

-glittery top coat

-makeup or craft sponge

-ear buds

-nail polish remover

Let’s get started!

First, I used a Wet and Wild black polish. You may need 2 coats for a solid look, but I only needed one.

Let it dry. Then, take out your sponge. This can be a makeup sponge or a craft sponge. I used a small craft sponge lying around the house. You can also use a sponge that comes from packaging in shipments. Brush some white nail polish on the sponge. Dab a little off a napkin. Sponge on white on your nail randomly. Don’t cover the entire nail.

Using about 2 shades of blue, brush some on to a small portion of the sponge. Dab a little off on to a napkin. Now, sponge that on most of the white. Don’t worry if some gets on the other parts of your nail. That’s what gives it a cool effect!

Now, do the same thing except with the red. Sponge the red on the remaining parts of the white.

Let it dry. Lastly, take out the glittery top coat. I used an Essie glitter. It was more like different sized confetti pieces. Apply that on top. This will act as a top coat.

To clean up around your nail, dip an ear bud into some remover and rub it away on your skin.

Finished! Let me know if you tried them. I hope you liked your galactic design! Feel free to twist it up with different colors like purple or orange. Thanks and don’t forget to comment!
