Doctor Who's Galaxy Nail Art

At the beginning of the month, I shared the nail art I wore to the Doctor Who premiere.  If you missed it, you can find it HERE.  Today I am showing you what Bria wore.  This is for the #31DC2014 prompt "galaxies".

This is my first attempt at galaxy nail art.  I always have been a little nervous about it.  I shouldn't have been.

I started with a base of Pahlish Eleven's Hour Is Over Now, a dark grey filled with flakies and some silver glitter.  It is the perfect base for this.  Not too dark, but with interest all on its own.

Next I sponged it with LynBDesigns Oobleck (green), LynBDesigns Tesalecta's Kiss (pink) and INLP Peace (purple).  I topped it all off with Orly Shine On Crazy Diamond, a holo glitter.

I created decals with MJ XII, Mentality Tough (blue) Cult Nails New Day (yellow).

I took these pics several days after I painted them, so there is a little bit of cuticle growth.

Bria loved this, so she wanted to make sure that that I took a mood stone.  I even ended up liking it., although I still can see areas of improvement.  It was so easy, I will definitely be trying it again!

Thanks for looking and commenting!

    1. Thanks Julia, but these are my darling daughter's nails. She is so sweet to nail model for me!

  3. Love it! I'm such a dork for Doctor Who! I haven't tried a 'real' galaxy yet. I really need to. :)

    1. Me too, Jessie! Hmm, wondering what a "fake" galaxy is :)

  4. Awesome! I love Doctor Who so much and this is the perfect design! I need that plate many reasons!

    1. I purchased the plate just for this image, but have used others. Well worth the money!
