Galaxy Nails for the #31DC2017Weekly

Hi there!

Well...I am a little late with challenge this week.  I should be showing you watermarble nails today but instead I have my galaxy nails from last week!  Oops.  But I will get caught up this week, I promise.  Galaxy nails are great.  They look complicated but are actually very easy to create.  It is difficult to mess them up.  Each year I say that I am going to do pastel galaxy nails for the challenge and each year I just end up doing traditional galaxy nails.  Well...this year I actually did some pastel galaxy nails!  They aren't as mesmerizing as traditional galaxy nails, in my opinion, but they are fun to look at nonetheless.

I started with a base of Zoya "Blu" then sponged on more Zoya colors until I got my desired effect.  I used Neely, Cala, Jordan and Purity for the solid colors.  Then I used Leia for a little pit of pink shimmer.  I used Purity and a small detail brush to make the stars and though it needed a litte more sparkle.  So I sponged on bits of opal glitters from Glam Polish "An Unexpected Journey" which completed the look.  It is all topped off with a glossy top coat.

I am happy with the final results but I think overall it needed a little more contrast between the colors.  I am sure I will attempt a pastel galaxy look again.  Have you ever done a non-traditional galaxy look?  Which type of galaxy nails do you like best?
