Galaxy nails

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!

  1. Ce inspiratie interesanta ai avut, super ideea!

    Galaxy-ul este perfect. (Imi place la nebunie aceasta manichiura)

    ps: ca sa iti raspund intrebarii de pe blog-ul meu : crede-ma ca nu am nicio ideea cu ma descurc. (eu sincer am impresia ca am dat-o-n bara cu "the 31 days challenge" pentru ca nu am postat cum trebuia; teoretic maine trebuia sa termin dar mai am 6 manichiuri de facut)

    Pupici draga mea

  30. Exact din aceasta cauza am adaugat glitterul, pentru un efect mai amplu de glaxy. Ma bucur mult ca iti place!

  31. Multumesc mult de tot!
    Mai demult am participat si eu la stfel de challenguri, dar mi-am dat seama ca este extrem de obositor, chiar daca la inceput pare haios si creativ...la un moment dat ajungeam la sfarsitul puterilor...asa ca eu ma abtin sa mai particip!

  37. Glitter always stands out more on matte nails, but here I do prefer the glossy version because I imagine the galaxy to be like...well, not glossy xD haha But definitely sparkly, which comes out better in the glossy version (lol does that even makes sense)

    ReplyDelete
  38. :)) I totally understand what you mean and I agree!

  39. I love it! Great job on these Andrea! Your phone case looks super awesome as well btw ;)

  40. <3 super ti-a iesit! abia astept sa mi creasca unghiutele sa mi mai fac si eu, pe unghii scurte nu mi place cum se vede galaxy
    acum mi s-a pus pata sa mi iau si eu husa pentru telefon cu galaxy!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Husa nu este chiar asa de exceptionala, ma asteptam sa fie mai stralucitoare dar neaparat am vrut sa creez unghiute care i se potrivesc. Abia astept sa vad unghiile tale imbracate in galaxy!
