Hello, friends! Today’s nail tutorial is so easy and looks incredibly beautiful. I love the galaxy effect and how intricate it turned out despite being a few simple steps, so here’s an easy way to do a galaxy nail manicure.
If you aren’t the DIY type, there are some pre-made options at the bottom of the post and we have a video you can watch as well!
Here’s all you need to get started …
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 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.
Step Four: Seal the deal with a top coat. This brings everything together and gives a nice shine to the look. Don’t forget this step. Makes a huge difference in the final look and keeps your mani from chipping. 🙂
