Nails inspired by the entire galaxy? You bet! And they go perfectly with ModCloth’s “The Way I Galaxy It” dress.
When I was asked to create a fun nail based off of a dress from ModCloth of course I said yes! What could be more fun than that? Have you seen their Nail Klub? It’s nail art inspired by their party dresses. Be sure to check out their dress inspiration!
Oh, and there are so many dresses to choose from! In fact, I found several that I was thinking about creating a nail from, but when I saw this dress I knew it was meant to be.
We are serious star gazers in this house!
To create the nail you are going to need black polish, color pigments (I used Moodstruck pigments), and a top coat. You will also need little brushes to apply the pigments with, I found some eye shadow applicators on sale so I used them.
I put my pigments on a paper plate for easier access. First, a nice base coat of black. When the polish is still tacky and not completely dried, start putting on various colors of pigment. I chose 4 colors, a white, blue, purple, and golden combo. My pigments had sparkle to them too, which seemed totally right for a nebula!
The key is to be a bit random. And don’t be afraid of messing up, there is really no such thing! Your nails are all going to be a bit different, but beautiful. When you have applied the color to your nails (I suggest doing one entire hand at one time), you have two choices. You can use white polish and a straight pin (dipped in the polish) to add some “stars” to your nebulae, or just leave them. My index finger in the photo below has stars, the other fingers do not.
Lastly, just apply your top coat! The top coat may smudge the pigments, creating even more gorgeous chaos! And it will seal the pigments in, so be sure not to skip this step.
And there you have it! Nails that are truly out of this world! Thanks ModCloth for asking me to participate, it was fun!
