Space Nails Tutorial

Hey everyone, just a quick message before the tutorial, THANKYOU so much for following us! Paloma and I have been grinning like cheshire cats for the past couple of days so thankyou :) xx Enjoy

Step 1) Paint a dark base coat. I used a sparkly purple but you could use black, green or blue (someting that symbolises the night sky).
 
Step 2) With a sponge or a eyeshadow stick (with the sponge on the end), add some blue to the centre of your nail.


Step 3) Layer up your colours. I've used  some green (all over the nail), some pink (at the tip and base) and some yellow (at the base).

Step 4) Add some white to the tips of your nails and with a white nail art pen, or a toothpick, dot some blobs to look like stars (make sure they are quite small). Then glaze your nails with a glitter topcoat, adding to the galaxy effect.
 
Finito! Space nails in rocket speed (do you see what i did there :)).  Believe me they sparkle in the light, just like stars...ok i'm being cheesy. Good luck! xxx

  21. Just tried this out. I'm pretty sloppy so the layering and painting small portions of the nail worked really well. I can't stop staring at my fingers!
