Purple Galaxies

Another attempt at wedding nail art! Since the colors are purple and cream and the ceremony is in a planetarium, I figured a galaxy mani would be a good idea! Actually, a friend suggested it when I mentioned that I was having trouble thinking of good wedding nail art…I just don’t remember which friend! Whoops.


When I was putting these together I was underwhelmed. The colors didn’t seem to go well, they were too close together, there wasn’t enough glitter (I usually use at least 50% holos for galaxy manis, but I only really have 3 purple holos and two of them are very scattered!). However, once I finally cleaned all the spare polish off from my cuticles and added my holo glitter top coat (while forgetting that I have one with holo AND white glitter that I should have used instead of hand-dabbing on stars) I actually rather like it!


So, this would be a super non-conventional thing to wear to a wedding. Is it nice enough? Fancy enough? This is my ‘cinderella’ hand (that you guys see 50% of the time anyway) so I could definitely make it match on both hands and not have to worry about free-hand issues.


Also I used at least 8 purple polishes. I am not going to list them, so lets hope if I do decide to recreate this that I can find them all! Or just empty the purple shelf in my nail art room and go to town.


…In retrospect, I have actually found the nail art I want to wear and it is way cooler than this :-p. That being said, these certainly count as galaxies so I am posting them with galaxy day! I will do a comparison week or something with all the other wedding-attempts I have done (there are 10. The 10th was my favorite by a long shot…I am just sad it took me 10!!!) so you can see them all!
