Milky Way Nails

Hi everyone!

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 🙂milky way nails galaxy nails sally hansen loves me not nails inc electric lane holographic top coat tip top rocky road star studs kkcenterhk born pretty store

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!milky way nails galaxy nails sally hansen loves me not nails inc electric lane holographic top coat tip top rocky road star studs kkcenterhk born pretty store

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. milky way nails galaxy nails sally hansen loves me not nails inc electric lane holographic top coat tip top rocky road star studs kkcenterhk 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!
