Today's design is inspired by a pastel galaxy nail art I saw a few days ago at Makeup Withdrawal post. It instantly reminded me of the Nailz Craze NC02 stamping plate that has these little sparkly stars on it, and the fact that I've been wanting to create a galaxy mani for a long time but never did it until now. So I decided to created this whimsical galaxy design with a few of my favorite pastel colors. You can see all the polishes I used for this design at the last photo.
I started this nail art with a lilac base Luci Darling 02. I applied one coat since the coverage was pretty good and I was about to layer other colors on top of it. Then I used a makeup sponge and applied light blue (Essence Sure Azure), pink (Essie Fiji) and gold (Barry M Gold Foil) polishes on the nails, tapping lightly on the nail. The first taps were a bit sheer so to achieve a deeper color I repeated this step once they dried a bit. Then I applied the gorgeous silver holographic glitter polish - Barry M Diamond Glitter, and stamped on top of it the sparkly stars stamp from Nailz Craze NC02 plate using Konad white (which was AH-mazing! First time I use this polish and stamping with it was just perfect!). On the thumbs I stamped the unicorn stamp, the whimsical part of this mani ;) I finished the design with one coat of Poshe.
I really love my whimsical galaxy nails and the unicorn is such a pretty addition to it. As it's winter time here, I could barely get these photos at a good light since it's raining all day, but I guess this will do. They sparkle much more than it shows and the colors are prettier in real life, you'll have to take my word on this one ;)
