Galaxy Nails


I was a little coral-ed out and wanted to wear black nail polish (harkening back to my emo high school days). I've been wanting to try galaxy nails for awhile so thought it was a nicer way to spruce up plain black nails. Now there are many tutorial versions out there. This is my interpretation but feel free to change/add colors, not use a glitter top coat and instead opt for dots. You can really make them your own.

Wet 'n Wild Black Creme | Zoya's Gaia | (not pictured: Kiss Nail Art Brush in White) | Sephora by OPI  Read My Palm | Essie's Big Spender | Sephora by OPI Top Coat in Only Gold For Me



I first applied Zoya's Gaia as the white base but when I sponged it, the white disappeared and a gold shimmer was left on my nail. I decided to go with it!


Much like the Ombre/Gradient effect: add the teal and pink color with the white in the middle onto a sponge. my nail until it formed a nebula looking cloud.



I topped it off with a gold glitter top coat to look like stars in the sky.

Not cleaned up yet

I'm obsessed with these nails - they are a new favorite!

Would you try galaxy nails?

  2. Love your cosmo nails. I have a nailpolish from Wet and Wild that is in a "cosmo" color. I think it's actually called cosmic. I did a tutorial way back when on it lol. It's the lazy girls way of achieving your color :) But I am glad to see the cosmic print is still in since I adore this print. Makes me wish I actually made more attention in astronomy class in college lol

  9. Oooh, I like it. Would take a bit of time, but not too messy so would be worth it for a great day/night look. I hadn't heard of galaxy nails before.

    1. Not that messy and the actual process isn't that long, just the drying time
