From the Vault - Galaxy Nails

I did these nails quite a while ago, but they make me want to revisit the galaxy mani and improve it!

My mom has this pillow/pillow case that I had seen about a thousand+ times and it eventually inspired me to create a mani.

The inspiration:



The nails:

For the planets, I swirled and layered circles of colors in oranges, reds, greens, blues, yellows and so forth. I used Nail Star pens and Apple Barrel acrylic paint in Christmas Green, Bright Red and Bright Yellow and lightened or darkened them as needed with a plain white or black acrylic paint. 

^^With the first couple of planets done, still pre-clean up

^^Left hand, pre-glitter

The final result:






















If nothing else, I am so glad I got over the gross nail shape! It's fine on other people, but for some reason I hate the look of pretty much any nail shape other than squared on me!

That's all for this installment of From the Vault. Buenos días. =)
