30/31 Day Challenge: Day 19 - Galaxies

Oh yeah - good times with the galaxy nails.
I did these nails back on February-ish and they were pretty awful.
I've wanted a rematch ever since, but I haven't really allotted the time to sit down and do them, since they are pretty time consuming.
One big reason I have wanted to tackle these again (I mean, besides the obvious that I have to for this challenge!) was that I saw Eva from Coewless do these AMAZING Blue and Green Galaxy Nails a few months ago and I HAD to try them. I love her toothbrush technique! She sure made it look easy, I sure couldn't get that paint to splatter like she did!

So first thing you notice is mine are VERY green based. This  is what I call The Tree Hair Nebula.


After all of the sponging, I tried to splatter silver dots in but it was basically a fail and turned into a splatter. So I dotted them on and added a few starbursts with Konad M14 plate and Essie No Place Like Chrome.


Finished with a coat of Gelous and Out the Door top coat.


Yes, I really did use this many polishes, and in this order.


Check out the rest of the ladies in their galaxies far, far, away!
