August seems to have flown by, so once again it's Polish Party time. This month the vote was for glitter and/or gems. If you follow me or have visited here before you'll know I love a bit of sparkle.
Now, I know I'm late to join in with the galaxy nails craze, but I've recently been enjoying spotting the ISS on it's orbits that have passed over the UK, and also seeing the super moon (although there was no cape in site!). I was also inspired to give them a go when I saw the pastel galaxy nails that sophiedoesnails posted on Instagram a couple of days ago.
I used quite a few different polishes for this design and it took a while to do because of all the layers, but I am really pleased with how they turned out.
After that I used NYC Lights-Camera-Glitter for my first layer of stars. To create the milky way glow in the middle of my nails I used a make up sponge to carefully add layers of Models Own Snow White, Sinful Colours Fig, and Laka 25 until I was happy with the shape and colour. To top this off and make it extra sparkly I added a few coats of Jessica Starlet, just to the milky way area on each nail. The main stars in the foreground were added using my Barry M nail art pen in white.
Just to show you the true sparkle and colours I took a quick picture on my phone outside and a quick video so you get the full effect...
I hope you like my purple galaxy for this months theme. Make sure you take a look at what the others girls do by following the links below. Don't forget to check out my giveaway at the bottom of this post
