A lover of space since a young age, I got really excited when I saw galaxy nails for the first time. And then I also saw a lot of .. erm, less than great looking examples of the trend, and I became a little weary. However, I found it time to take the leap and simply try.
Some reference..

Polishes used (left to right):
Wild & More 109
Catrice - 840 - Genius in the Bottle
Catrice - 31 - Even More Heavy Metallilac
Essence - 43 - Where Is The Party?
Hema - French Manicure striper
Hema - 10
Koh - Midnight Blue
Koh - Black
YSL - No35

I was getting along relatively well, sponging away with my various colours and dotting the stars. And then I'd finished and.. put glitter on top. In retrospect, the glitter was a mistake. I had seen glitter work really well in galaxy nails by other people, but my glitter is FAR too green and there's just too much of it. So I wish I hadn't done that.
Will have to repeat sometime, with a less dense glitter, or going without altogether.


  1. Wauw wat mooi geworden!
    Ik vind trouwens de groene glitters juist wel een leuk effect geven, haha :)

    1. Bedankt!
      Ach, het gaat ook wel, maar het leid gewoon af van waar ik oorspronkelijk voor ging :).

  2. Nog nooit gemaakt, wil ik echt eens doen! Je galaxy is erg mooi geworden!

    1. Thanks! Ik was erg nerveus, omdat je het vaker fout ziet gaan dan goed, maar het viel wel mee. Go for it ;)!
