Some of you already now that recently I received a galaxy phone case that I won from Born Pretty Store in collaboration with Marine Loves Polish blog. Of course I had to make a matching manicure for it.
I used for the base OPI - Russian Navy and with the help of tiny bits of sponges I made the galaxy effect with a sky blue shade from Golden Rose - 212 and Violet fabuleaux by Marionnaud. I added a little bit of glitter from Moyra. The white splatter is made with acrylic paint and the easiest way to achieve the star effect is using a toothbrush and splatter the nails from the distance. Than I added the bigger stars with a thin brush.
You may already know Russian Navy by OPI, it is a classic shade, a rich dark navy blue with tons of purple shimmers, it looks close to black on the nails, so it was the best choice for the base for this nail art. The magenta shimmer is more visible in the bottle than on the nails but it gives this color a bit of depth that makes it wonderful. I applied it in one coat.
The nail art looks a little bit striped because I made it late at night and got to bed before it dried completely :(
I was curious how it looks matte, but the difference is not to big in my opinion, the only thing that looks much better this way is the glitter.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you like my galaxy nails!
