Out Of This World

I hope the week has been well to you so far! School has been the same old thing for me but tomorrow I'll be going to a university for a French contest. I have to read a passage and then have a discussion about it with some judges in French. I initially didn't really care about it but now I'm worried about sounding like an idiot haha :P

Anyway I've been pretty uninspired lately. I sit by my Helmer for ages staring at polishes, trying to think of something to do. Then I saw a picture of galaxy nails on Tumblr and I had a Eureka! moment. This trend has been going on for ages but I'm finally hopping on the bandwagon now. Better late than never, right?


My base was China Glaze Liquid Leather followed by Orly Royal Velvet. Using a makeup sponge I randomly sponged on OPI On Stranger Tides. In smaller areas I sponged on Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud, China Glaze Kinetic Candy and China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy. I used a dotting tool to add some 'stars' and topped it off with Essie Pure Pearlflection.


It didn't come out exactly like how I envisioned but I'm satisfied! It's definitely one of those manicures that looks better from afar :P Thanks for stopping by!

    I did my nails in a galaxy inspired way, check it out on my blog! I'll send you a link. But I'm Swedish but as you see I understand English! But the only thing you need to do is to look at the picture! :)

  7. Oh, wow, I just did these too! Love the colours you picked--the pink really gives it a nice, warm kick--and your sponging really looks like far-off, swirling galaxies. Excellent job!

  10. That's funny that we were both late on this trend but kinda at the same time! Yours looks awesome tho. Don't you hate uninspired spells?! So annoying!! How did your French thing go? I always was nervous for oral exams in college so I would be a mess! Haha. I'm sure you did great tho. :)
