Today I have some fun nails for you that I have dubbed my Milky Way nails. I did nail art that was similar to this a few times when I first started getting into nail art, and it was a big hit with Mr Boyfriend – he was actually the one who mentioned it looked like the Milky Way! I’ve made a few changes to those original ones but I figured it was finally time for my Milky Way nails to get onto my blog 🙂
The base is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Loves Me Not. A gorgeous, shimmery night-sky purple! Next, I added a coat of Nails Inc Electric Lane Holographic Top Coat to all my nails. I’d actually intended to do this with a normal silver glitter, but my only plain silver glitter is a super cheap one which had dried up and I didn’t have my thinner with me. So, I resorted to the holo top coat – but I don’t regret it! Just imagine you’re away from the city lights, looking up at a night sky filled with more stars than you’ve ever seen before!
On my ring finger – for the milky way part, I added 2 coats of Tip Top Rocky Road – one of my favourite glitters EVER! It’s filled with different sized holographic glitters! I added a second coat of Electric Lane to my ring finger too. I then added the star studs – the purple ones come from my prize from kkcenterhk, and the silver one I bought from the Born Pretty Store.
I took all my pictures with artificial lighting, and I am so sorry I didn’t get some in the sun, because you should have SEEN how these sparkled! It was incredible! Super simple nail art but I just loved it!
