Purple Galaxy

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?
