Nails Of The Day.(NOTD) : Galaxies.

Since I've started growing my nails again (after years of obsessive biting) I figured I should start a 'Nails of the Day" thinga-ma-bobby,where I upload some photos for creative and inspirational purposes! A bit of fun,what ho? :)

Today's nails feature galaxies! :D

I'm so excited to share with you these cosmic designs.I know they aren't exactly original,but I'm so pleased with how they turned out.

I'm more than happy to have long nails,finally.They feel a little weird if I'm honest,but I'm sure I'll get used to them with time.

How I created these nails.

The design was done using a base of "Deliciously Dark" 60 Second Nail Polish by Rimmel,sponging on some 'White' by Barry M,"Cascade Cool" from Essie and No.71 "Boom" from George in rippling,random curves and swirls.

To make the stars,I dotted some more of the white polish over the design and finished off with No.500 "Disco Ball" I <3 Lasting Finish from Rimmel! You could also add some flat sparkling gems.

I cleaned around the edges of the nails with a cotton bud (Q-Tip),ended with a Top Coat from O.P.I and the look was done! It took me all of 30 minutes to do one hand.

How difficult? 

I give this design a 4/5 difficulty rating.Definitely one to try out!

I hope you enjoyed today's NOTD.Check back every few days for more creative nail designs.
