Galaxy Nail Art


Looking for a trendy, edgy and ultra cool manicure sure to leave your claws the envy of all of your friends? Galaxy nail art is definitely worth trying! This nail art looks difficult but it is surprisingly easy as long as you take your time and have patience! The best part about this nail art is there is not right or wrong and each nail can be completely different and still look amazing!

What You Need:

Base Coat

Top Coat

Dark Blue Nail Polish

White Nail Polish

Light Green Nail Polish

Purple Nail Polish

Black Nail Polish

Clear Glitter Nail Polish




Step 1: Prime your nails by applying a layer of base coat (this protects
nails when applying polish).

Step 2: Apply a thin layer of dark blue nail polish and coat with a layer
of glitter and leave to dry. (Don’t apply too thickly…you will be adding
many other layers of polish in the next steps!)

Step 3: Use a sponge to lightly dap white polish in the corners of your
nails and leave to dry. You can cover as much or as little as the dark blue
nail polish as you like.

Step 4: Sponge on light green nail polish over the white polish to give
your nails an outer space appearance. The sponge adds a unique texture
to the polish but be sure to sponge delicately or you will wipe of the
polish applied in the previous steps!

Step 5: Repeat the sponging with the purple nail polish and leave to dry.

Step 6: Lightly dip a q-tip in black nail polish and swish on the corners
of the nail to create depth.

Step 6: Give your nails the ultimate cosmic connection by layering a thin
coat of clear glitter over top.

Step 7: Finish with a clear top coat and leave to dry!
