Tutorial: Galaxy Nails! Pic-Tutorial!

I have seen Galaxy nails around the inter-webs and I figured it was finally time to try it!! This is my Spring Break from school, so I am only working at my office job, which gives me a little more time to play!!

Whenever I look for a new nail-look to try, I always want to see a tutorial first.  I used this one, by No Nekkid Nails.

I'm probably alone in this, but I'm not a huge video fan (probably because my boyfriend is sitting on the couch next to me as I type this and would probably object to a 7-10 minutes on nail looks, LOL), so I tend to go for a picture tutorial.  I also like pictures because I can go at my own pace and look at a certain pic for as long as I want to, in order to get the look just right.

So first, here is my finished look!!!

So, let's see the process! First, the base coat. I used NYC Bowery Black:

I used a makeup sponge ripped into pieces to dab on each color. First, Confetti Wedding White, my go-to white creme.

Next, I added Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow and then OPI A Woman's Prague-Ative:

Lastly, China Glaze Water You Waiting For:

I added dots using Confetti Wedding White, and found a few star gems to glue on:

And lastly, I used my Loreal Silver Sparkle and Monster Polish Lacey's Heartstrings to add a few scattered glittery cosmos.  Come a little closer, but warning: it's a little messy, forgive me!

The overall look is gorgeous, if I do say so myself!!  And this is Sunny's 365 Days Of Color cuticle oil - dreamy formula!! Loove this!
