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!

I wish I could paint my nails like this... But it'd chip off in no time flat.

Do you use a base and top coat? My nails used to chip the day I did them, but with the base and top coat, it lasts much longer!

The problem is that I play the cello, so I have to keep my nails really really short to keep them out of the way.

well i got a dark dark slightly sparkley purpley-blue color for the base, and light slightly sparkley pink for the smudges, but i used a tooth pick and this crappy old white color i had lying around for the stars and that basically ruined it hahaha but i added some sparkles and now im just waiting to add the top coat!
they didnt come out half bad! but next time ill just put a lot of sparkles in places instead of using white!

Sparkles make everything better! On sunday I was doing a blue to black gradient, but the gradient looked awful! I threw some sparkles on there and it looked amazing! haha!

I want to frame your nails, that's how awesome they are. 1) I LOVE space and 2) to get your nails to grow, I recommend Sinful Colours basecoat, quick dry, or the anti-bite & nail growth.
