Day 19 - Galaxies

Happy Sunday everyone! The weekend is too short, and since we're coming up on Back to School, I have to work every single day this coming week - no fun! In other news, today I have some awesome nails to show you. I've seen thousands of interpretations of galaxy nails but I've always been intimidated by this type of manicure. After finally facing my fears with today's challenge, I am so happy that I attempted this because they turned out perfectly!
I admit it: I am the new biggest fan of galaxy nails! I am over the moon, pun fully intended. 

The colours I used to create this look were OPI Russian Navy, OPI The Thrill of Brazil, OPI The Show Must Go On, OPI It's My Year, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Barry M Cobalt Blue, Zoya Arizona, and China Glaze Happy Go Lucky.

I think my favourite nail is my index finger, what do you guys think? Which is your favourite? I love how different each nail is!

Have you guys done galaxy nails? They are so much easier than I anticipated, they're so much fun. This is definitely a manicure that I'll be doing again and again and again. If you want to try these out and need some inspiration, check out the out-of-this-world manis of the lovely ladies who are accompanying me in this challenge!


  1. I'm soon intimidated by this Mani too... you did really well, its a gorgeous mani!

    1. thanks Julie! It really is easy - I promise. I thought it looked too rough and not cohesive until I added a coat of Seche Vite and that helped smooth it out and make me love this look!

  2. you did a great job! My favorite is your index too :) I've been wanting to try this mani for ages!

  3. These are stunning! They really look amazing! I am intimidated by the galaxy mani as well, probably why I've never attempted it =)

  4. Lovely job! I love galaxy manis!

  5. Amazing! I still haven't tried doing that myself. I will definitely give it a try some day (soon?) :D
