Yield: 10 beautiful galaxies

  • a few bottles of different coloured nail polish, including black or dark blue, and one white
  • 1 bottle of glitter or confetti polish

  9. On to the next colour! I chose vibrant pink. Get paint on the backside of one of the eyeshadow applicators (to be super thrifty) and dab lightly on the nails. If you want more pop, layer white on top and go round the nails. This makes them more flashy. Let them dry for a few minutes.

  11. Now to add the stars. Get your glitter or confetti nail polish and paint on top of all your nails. Let dry.

  13. Paint one last coat using the clear nail polish. This will serve as your topcoat. Shiny!
