So I finally tried a galaxy mani...
...and I think I did "ok" for my first go. A couple of weeks ago I finally found the artist behind all of the rad mani's (esp galaxy ones) that I have seen shamelessly reposted all over Pinterest and Instagram. I won't repost because I don't have her permission, but please go take a look at the very talented Coewless . You will have to let google translate for you, but its worth it.
I had seen her purple/pink version of a galaxy mani and knew I had to try my hand at it. She has a couple of tutorials on YouTube if you need some help.
This is what I ended up with:
The colors I used are listed above. I started with a base of "Truth or Dare" from Sinful colors and sponged a combination of the others with a torn up makeup sponge. I finished everything off with a coat of Northern Lights (it fixes everything doesn't it?!) and then used some white acrylic paint and an old tooth brush to splatter some "stars" and a striping brush to make some defined stars. Seriously, Coewless' tutorial is worth a watch!
What do you think? I like the way they turned out, but I think with a little more practice I can make them look better. I'm going to try a traditional galaxy mani soon...perhaps I'll find my stride.
How was every one's weekend?
