I made a huge effort to stay away from the pastel galaxy nails today but I just kept getting drawn back. I tried a few variations with dark colours and I didn't like any of them as much as I did the pastels so I just stuck with my favourite colour combination - pink, blue and purple!
I started with a base of Barry M White followed by a coat of No7 Stay Perfect Top Coat to dry it off.
I placed scotch tape on the sides of my nails to mark off the white 'frame' and then created the galaxy by sponging on the different colours. There's a full galaxy tutorial here.
The colours I used for the galaxy are Barry M Prickly Pear, NYC Raindrop and NYC MoMa. I painted over them in a coat of Calvin Klein Blue Wants to be a Millionaire and added the star details using acrylic paint with a nail art brush and dotting tool.
It's all topped off with a coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails High Gloss Top Sealer.
