I have done galaxies before, but I wanted to do something a bit different this time. My attempt with special polishes (Picture Polish - illusionist & altered state), didn't quite work out, so I returned to what I knew.
Excuse the bad photo, but I was trying to highlight the glitter "stars".
I used a sponge to add the lighter colours, all at the same time, over a base of Barry M - Black Multi Glitter.
The other colours were,
NYC - Lincoln Square Lavander & Blue Sky
Revlon - Midnight Affair
Models Own - White Light
Barry M - Shocking Pink & Diamond Glitter
After my standard galaxy base was dry, I got out my acrylic paints - black, white, red, orange, yellow, green and silver - to add some space stuff.
My arty skills are limited, but I just went for it, and again, I resisted the temptation to put in too much.
And don't forget my little green alien...... And that's how I did my galaxy nails, a little bit differently.
I am so not looking forward until tomorrow. It is water marbling...... Let's see if I can get a proper pattern out of it for once.
