Today I want to share with you a three-step galaxy nails design. It is simple, fast and does not require perfection. This makes it great for when you are in a hurry but still want your nails to impress.
First, paint your nails with two coats of black polish.
You can even apply only one thick coat of color because it will be covered by other colors and this may hide any lighter spots or smudges. I have seen this nail art painted over dark blue and I believe that a dark enough color looks OK, I have not tried it myself though.
Then randomly sponge some white, blue and purple color onto your nails.
Just put some nail polish on a makeup sponge and touch your nails here and there. Really, “random” is the key word for this design. I love using the sponge technique as it is fast and you can do it to both your hands with ease. A downside is that it can be a little messy but practice makes perfect and in a few tries you won’t need to clean too much up. When sponging, start with white on the largest area, than blue, and then purple in smaller areas. You can add some larger white dots to pretend for stars if you wish but this step is not essential to the look.
Last, add a glitter top coat.
At this point you won’t need to add a finishing top coat as the glitter nail polish is a top coat itself. However, if your design has turned out a little bumpier and you want to smooth it out, I would suggest to use a clear top coat as glitter may build up and leave your galaxy way too sparkly : )
