Once in a blue moon

galaxy nails stars moon space

I've had a good look through my nail polish stash and realised that I haven't used any blue polishes in ages! Blue reminds me of the sky (you'd never guess, would you?!) so I decided on space nails. To make it a bit less unoriginal I decided to add the Moon. I thought the whole mani would be really time consuming. As it happens, it actually took FOREVER to allign the two accent nails!


I started by painting my nails with Miss Sporty 3160. It's so gorgeous and vibrant! Once they were dry I dabbed Collection 6 Blue Belle, Maybelline 20 Uptown Blue and Golden Rose Paris 52. I added dots using a dotting tool and stars using a striping brush. I wanted the nails to look shimmery but I don't really have that kind of polish so I experimented a bit and added Golden Rose Paris 52. OMG it's absolutely gorgeous! It's slightly green but very sheer so it only added an amazing luminosity and depth to the whole design.

I had a vision in my head of how I wanted the Moon to look but quite frankly I wasn't sure how to go about painting one. In the end I created a slanted gradient, dabbed a bit of grey polish and added a line to create the Moon. I actually really like the end result because it's very similar to what I imagined it would look like. That's a first!

What do you think? Have I managed to make it a bit more original? I hope so! Xx
