Space Nails- The Coolest Manicure Ever!

Sunday, December 18, 2011

While browsing the internet, I recently came across the coolest manicure ever. It’s a space/galaxy inspired manicure and is easier to achieve than it seems. Here’s how:

1. Start with a base coat so the polish won’t stain your nails.

2. Apply two coats of black nail polish and let them dry completely.

3. Grab a hot pink polish, a lilac or light blue, a sponge and a piece of paper. 

4. Pour out some of the hot pink polish onto the paper. Dab the sponge into the polish and dab in certain areas over the black.

5. Next, do the same with the lilac or blue shade. Don't be afraid to layer the colors on top of each other

6. Finish off the look with a glitter topcoat (stars!) 

Tell us YOUR cool nail art ideas!

I painted 1 reindeer head on each of 9 nails and a Santa head on one nail for Christmas. :)

I'm a big Def Leppard fan so I've painted all nails red & spelled out Def Leppard in black across my nails. I've done Ireland's flag on my nails & the British flag.
