Galaxy NailsGalaxy Nails DIY Step One: Apply 1-2 coats of black polish to your nails and let dry.

Step Two: Pour out a little bit of each of your acrylic colors on a plate. Taking a makeup sponge, start with the white and lightly sponge on a bit of white. Follow up with a little bit of the royal blue and purple. Play around with the sponging until you like the look. To add more dimension, add just a tiny bit of white over the top with your sponge. Make sure you leave some of the black polish showing around your nails for added depth. Finally, take a little bit of the silver sparkle—I love the ones from the Martha Stewart line. I know it’s tempting, but just add a teeny tiny amount of sparkle. It ends up taking away from the look too much if it’s too sparkly.
