NOTD: Galaxy Nails the Easy Way

I don't know if you guys have seen this trend floating around the blogosphere but I think it's amazing! It's galaxy nails, where (extremely) talented girls paint their nails to resemble space!

Here are some pictures I found to demonstrate;

I wish I was this talented at doing my nails! I have pretty shocking nails from working in retail I find that my nails are constantly chipping and cracking. I think this is why I find it hard to get inspired when it comes to painting them. But this is one trend I had to try.

Granted I took the (very) easy way out with this one but I still like the effect and wanted to share it with you, in case you are just as bad at me when it comes to painting your nails.

So here are the polishes I used for this;

Firstly I applied 2 coats of Ulta3's Midnight Fever polish.

This is a really pretty polish, but didn't go on
as well as my other Ulta3 polishes.

I then added one coat of Korean made Facelove's polish in Blue Cubic. This is a gorgeous glitter polish with a tonne of different coloured glitter in it and then larger reflective circle glitters.

How cute is this?? I won it in Lilit's giveaway a while back

I finished it off with one coat of the Maybelline Express Finish top coat to add some shine and protect the glitter.

And the result??

Here you can see the different colours that appear when the light shines on it

So there is my attempt at the new galaxy nails trend. I know it doesn't come close to what some other girls have created but I still enjoy the effect. I wore this out last night and couldn't stop looking at my nails!! It also looks a lot better in person than I could capture on film. I definitely recommend giving this trend a go :)

If any of you have tried this I would love to see pics!! What do you think of this trend? Would you rock it?

Thanks :) I really did take the easy way out though haha, from what I have heard the ones like in the photos above take quite a long time!

The facelove polish looks pretty good! I'd totally be taking the easy way out as well, I don't have the patience to do such nail arts.

Yeah it looks even better in person and at night or some reason, the different coloured sparkles come out more :)
