Space Nails by KatieAlves Space Nails by KatieAlves
So instead of taking a picture of one hand, so you had to try to guess what all the details are... I took it of each nail so you could see what I did on each. Each nail is different! I'm starting to get into nail art, slowly! Even though my nails are sadly a little short. They don't like to grow!

Which nail is your favourite? I think mine is the top left!

This was actually quite easy! I just put a base coat of black down, then with a small piece of cosmetic sponge I dipped it in a purpley pink and blotted it on in the middle. Then I took a really crappy, awful white that was too watery for normal use and layered it on top of the pink, some spots very light, so heavy. Then I took my nail art pen (you should be able to buy them in any drug store, mine's Sally Hansen) in white and created little stars and designs. Then finally I added silver sparkles to give it more smaller stars!

Excellent idea on the close-ups. The only flaw I could see was that the black hole could be more solid. You can see too many of the black dots off to the sides. Also if you don't mind a suggestion, you could show the white stars being "pulled in" by making them more dense the closer they are to the black hole, giving it a slightly more real look. Latly, I'm sorry, but you do lose points on originality because (through no fault of your own I'm sure) galaxy nails have become a bit of a fad. I'm not entirely sure when the fad started, but if it was after you made this, then I up your originality to 5/5.
What do you think?

Oh man. I never wear nail polish (I'm hard on my nails: crafts and paints and stuff), but I would totally wear something like that. So rich and glorious and sparkly!
