15 Day Nail Challenge (Day 4) : Galaxy Nails

So I can't believe I only found out today, but Fee over at Makeup Savvy is hosting a nail art challenge over the next 2 weeks ! It started on the 1st August, but people are free to join as they wish and pick and choose which challenges they take part in !

Lucky for me, I found out about the challenge just in time for day 4, which is Galaxy Nails ! Now, I know I did a galaxy nail in my skittles from the other day, but that was my first time doing it, and I have to admit, it wasn't my favourite of the bunch ! Today however, I decided that this Nail Challenge would be an excellent opportunity to try them out again and attempt to get a better result !


Now, overall I am ecstatic with how this design turned out ! I find they blend together more and look more realistic than the last time. Plus I'm really happy about the fact that my makeup sponge I used didn't fall apart and leave bits all over my nail whilst sponging like it usually does !


So the polishes I used to create this design were Barry M Black for the base colour, then I used Kiko China Blue, Nicole by OPI Gone Wishin', OPI Alpine White, P2 Who Cares ?, Kiko Electric Blue, Barry M Berry Ice Cream, Essence Hello Holo ! and finally I drew on some white dots to represent closer stars with my Models Own Wah Nails nail art pen in white.


So I wouldn't say galaxy nail art is the easiest design ever, but it's not difficult by any stretch of the imagination ! The only thing I would say about it is that it's rather time consuming, and doesn't make for a quick design for anyone who's in a rush !


So what do you think ? Have you tried galaxy nails before ? Did they disappoint or were they out of this world (oh my god that's so bad !) ?
