I used LA Looks Black Velvet as the base of the nail. This is quickly becoming my favorite nail art black. Perfect formula, it spreads perfectly, can be used in one coat for small art, and is only $1. For the galaxy I used:
(in this general order, one or two may have been switched around)
Wet N Wild Lavender Creme
Wet N Wild Red Red
China Glaze Riveting
Wet N Wild Blue Moon
Zia Unnamed off-white frost with silver sparkle
I then covered it with a light coat of Petites Stardust. Careful, this one surprisingly has enough coverage that a regular coat will be too much glitter. Note the difference in coverage between the right and left pictures. Otherwise I'm really impressed with how these came out on my first try! For the rest of my nails I used Wet N Wild Everybody Loves Redmond.
I was not happy with the red, it was just too orange, but I didn't have anything better. But the next day I hit up Rite Aid's Wet N Wild deal and got Burgundy Frost which worked perfectly! I wish I had this exact shade in a creme though, I didn't want the distraction of frost or shimmer or glitter or anything. I really feel like accent nails with nail art needs a complimentary but subdued color on the rest of the nails to allow them to stand out.
In the end, I love this art and can't wait to try it again with other colors. Also I loved that both my husband and my older daughter knew what it was right off the bat! What do you think about galaxy nails? Have you tried it?
