Galaxy Nails Pictorial!! Take 2!

The best part of doing Galaxy Nails nailart is that you cannot get it wrong!  Take a sponge, pick your favorite colors, and go for it!  I love a pic tutorial over a YouTube video because

a) I can look at it on my phone,
b) I can scroll step by step, and
c) I don't have a YouTube channel..YET!

Here is the finished product of my most recent Galaxy mani:

Shall we see the process?

I started with 2 coats of Zoya Storm:

Added the start of the galaxy with Wet n Wild A Blank Canvas.  I used a makeup sponge cut into itty bitty pieces and use a tweezer to apply the color.  I used tinfoil to hold the polish and blotted each time before applying to the nail for a whispy look:

Next, Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow:

My coral of choice was NYC Spring Tulip:

Every galaxy needs green.  This is Wet n Wild Chick Magnet Zack:

I also used Essie Butler Blue, probably my favorite cobalt blue:

NYC Grammercy Glitz was the first OF MANY glitter toppers:

Zoya Chloe added some depth with flakkies only across the galaxy itself:

White dots, using a dotting tool, in Wet n Wild A Blank Canvas, act as the stars...they should've been smaller, I think:

Zoya Maria-Louisa was the last polish used:
