My first Galaxy Nails!

I finally managed to do the most awesome nail art trend ever : the galaxy nails! I wanted to do them for ages but I always thought, they're too difficult to do. When I saw some pretty pictures featuring this awesome design a few days ago, I just removed my polish and started polishing and sponging like crazy, to achieve the galaxy look :D

Here is what I used: 


And also Flormar U25, which I forgot to put in the picture^^ And here is the end result:


The white is actually acrylic paint, and I used the technique shown in this video to create all the little stars in my galaxy :) 


It was really fun creating this mani, buuuuut the clean-up was such a pain in the a** because of all the blue polishes. After washing my hands 2 times the blue staining from my skin was gone though :) 


So much shimmer and glitter going on here and since blue is my favorite nail polish color, this has to be my all-time favorite manicure !!

I will definitely try this with different colors too! Like purple shades for example :D 
Now tell me, do you like galaxy nails? 

Thanks for reading and have a good night!
