31DC 2.0 - Galaxies

Hi all!

A day late (or early seeing as the founders of this challenge took a break), but here is my galaxy mani. I decided to remove the patch from my ring fingernail yesterday (to fix this), it has grown out enough as you can see here. Plus the thickness of the patch and polish started to annoy me. So today you'll see slightly shorter nails (but not short). You still get to see two mani's with my long nails though. For today's galaxy nails I chose another Lucky 13 Lacquer as my base: Why is There A "G" in Night.

Kyoti describes this polish as a: Deep indigo jelly with fine teal hex, tiny red and sky blue holo hex, fine charcoal grey holo hex, and large silver holographic hex and stars. It nearly looks black, but you can see it isn't by the thin layer on top of the bigger glitters.

I'm wearing two coats and top coat in my photos. I found that you have to apply quickly as you might otherwise pull gaps in the polish where it is starting to dry. I did have to fish for some of the stars, but the big glitters aren't that evenly distributed in my bottle (and I only briefly rolled it before using).

I felt a bit bad covering it up with some nail art, this polish is gorgeous on it's own. But I did anyway.

For the galaxy I used:
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Why is There A "G" in Night?
  • L.A. Girl - 3D Effects - Teal Dimension
  • Sinful Colors - 101 Snow Me White

On top of my base I sponged Teal Dimension and Snow Me White using a itty bitty piece of sponge and tweezers. I mixed both polishes as well creating the more opaque tealish turquoiseish colour. I added white dots with a toothpick and a needle (because it is smaller than a dotting tool). With my small nail art brush I added the big stars. I sealed it all with a coat of G&G HK Girl top coat.

 (Excuse the oddly lighted photos, but the weather here has gone from pouring rain to sunshine and back all day).

As with each galaxy mani before, I love this one as well, they are just so interesting to look at!

Love, Brethil
