Galaxy Nails

 Hello!

       If you want nails like below, then stick around, and I'll show you how easy and fun it is to do this! It's even easy for your less dominant hand!

What you will need:

* Sponge ( I'm using a makeup sponge applicator)
* Black or very dark nail polish
* Colors lighter than black, one a little darker than the other
*Clear nail polish or glitter (I ended up using glitter, not regular clear)
*Maybe more colors if you want, I ended up using a really light purple and green too!
*Also, paper to put the nail polish on

Step #1

Paint nails black and wait for it to get dry

Step #2

drop some of the nail polish onto the paper

Step #3

Dip sponge in darker color first (blue) and dap it on nail, more in the center

Here I put the purple but it wasn't light enough, so I used a lighter one, in the picture after this one!

Here you can see below I used the lighter on (in the back) and it looked better

Then I added some green for more dimension

Finally add the glitter polish or clear, but glitter is more fun ;)
