31dc2012 - day 19

Hey everyone!

It is now Day 19 of the 31 Day Challenge and the theme for today is Galaxies!

I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to create the look I wanted for today but I'm really pleased with how it turned out!


A purple galaxy!


This manicure was inspired by the amazing purple galaxy by Coewless Polish. Mine didn't turn out just like hers but I think both versions are fab!


I used a whooooole bunch of polishes to create this look.

The base color is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - Trouble Maker. I totally forgot how much I adore this polish! The formula is fantastic and the brush on the CSM polishes is so flawless. I gotta remember to bust out my old faves more often!

I created the galaxy look by sponging on all the other colors randomly:
China Glaze - Spontaneous
China Glaze - Grape Pop
China Glaze - Dance Baby
OPI - A Dozen Rosas
OPI - Dim Sum Plum
Orly - Galaxy Girl
Lime Crime - Lavendairy
Essence - Very Berry
 
I did the stars using Color Club - French Tip and a very small dotting tool and brush.

 
I think my middle finger is especially awesome! I had a lot of fun creating these nails.
What do you guys think? Successful purple galaxy?

Have a lovely day!

  7. I love it! Great colours. I'm becoming a big fan of Sally's Complete Salon as well. According to the sign at Shopper's Drug Mart it's Canada's number one nail polish ;oP

  16. I can figure out how to do most of this mani but how did you do the starburst on your middle finger? Is it with a dotter and maybe a toothpick?

  20. I love it! such a fun idea to pick a color other than black for galaxy nails!

  21. This is such a great take on galaxy nails! Like many of us other awesome peoples have already said, it's a very unique approach to a fun mani that usually goes black or dark blue. I love the color scheme, the depth and the fact that it's totally a galaxy that's totally a warm purple!
