31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Day 19: Galaxy Nails

WARNING: Picture-heavy post!


I have done countless galaxy manicures in the past, so I decided to switch it up with these. First of all, I let my mom pick out the colors I was gonna use. She picked out a lot of seemingly random colors, but to my surprise, they all worked perfectly together. I ended up adding one color to make it a little more 'complete'. All in all, these were a lot of fun to make and to look at. And the best part? They glow in the dark!

I am also officially calling these rainbow galaxies, because that's how they ended up looking to me. I really truly love these and just a single picture does not do them justice. They're really sparkly!

Here, have some pictures.

Make sure to click through these pictures to magnify them!
The glow wasn't the strongest unfortunately, even after charging the polish with flash. It would have possibly worked better if I put the polish over an actual white base.

Colors used (in no particular order):
licorice - essie (black base)
10B - Manhattan (dark blue)
U09 - flormar (sparkly medium purple)
i don't need money, honey! - essence (teal foil-effect polish)
Shag - butter London (shimmery medium brown)
Deep Coral - MaXFactor (dark orange/red)
S02 - flormar (shimmery green jelly)
Bling Dynasty - OPI (yellow gold)
Ski Slope Sweetie - OPI (white glass fleck polish with cream shimmer)
let stars rain down on me! - esssence (small holo glitter)
White Out - Claire's (white jelly, glows green in the dark)
