This post shows how much better I’ve got at nail art in the past few months!
I haven’t been posting a lot recently, I’ve been using Tumblr. The group Polish-Aholics Anonymous on Facebook has got me back into blogging, along with some support from my boyfriend.
So the Monday Nail Art challenge on the group Polish-Aholics Anonymous theme this week was Galaxy nails. I did try these out a long time ago if you scroll back through my posts, and to be honest, when I look back now. It wasn’t very impressive!
Heres my attempt this time!!

I’m geniunley really proud of this. I love the ring finger, it looks so galaxy like! This did take me quite a while. I really would enlarge this picture just to show you the true beauty of the way the colours work together. I used a sponge to create my galaxies and a dotting tool for the stars. I found a really good way to use a sponge and have it small enough to create little splodges.
I ripped up a makeup sponge and placed it in a pair of tweezers, I then tied it up with a snag band. I saw this on a youtube video, but i cant remember which one!
