NOTD: Galaxy nails

I love, love, love the Galaxy inspired nails trend at the moment. This is my first attempt and I don't think it looks too bad (though trust me when I say it looks much better from a slight distance!)

For mine I did the following:-
1. Apply one coat all over of a dark navy blue, I used Barry M's 292 Navy which is also one of my all time favourite shades from Barry M.
2. Once that has dried, using a teeny piece of an old (but clean) make-up sponge, I quickly dabbed on a bit of Barry M's 66 Matte White to create a cloud effect.
3. Allow to dry and then do the same with a purple shade, I used Mac's Formidable which looks like a galaxy in a bottle on its own.
4. Lastly, to add some 'stars', you can add some glitter if wanted. I used Barry M's 239 Lavender Hexograms which worked well with the purpleness of Formidable.
5. Slick on a clear top coat and you're done!

  7. Really pretty! I attempted some nail art for the first time today and it didn't turn out well. This doesn't actually sound like it would be that tricky though, might have to give it a go!
