Galaxy Nail Tutorial

What you will need:

  • Cosmetic Sponge

  • Tape

  • Cup & Water

  • Assortment of Jewel tone Nail Lacquer 

  • Base & Top Coat

  • Q-Tips

  • Nail Polish Remover

Start by trimming nails and applying a layer of base coat. I decided to tape off my nails so I could minimize the excess lacquer on my skin. Start by soaking a sponge in a cup of water, make sure the sponge absorbs enough water so the polish will not soak right through.

Once the sponge is set, apply the lacquer in which ever pattern you chose. I decided to go from green to dark purple or as pictured in the image above. Once the sponge is ready with your lacquer, apply straight to your nails. I did 2-3 coats on each nail to achieve the pictured results. This does not need to be perfect, so apply as little or as much as you like!

Once the nails are lacquered to your desire, clean up the excess that got onto skin & cuticles by using a polish remover and Q-tip. Apply a top coat and voila! galaxy-like nails!
