NOTW 26: International Astronomy Day

Today is International Astronomy Day and I absolutely LOVE things to do with astronomy and space and all that sort of stuff, so I was super excited to see this day come up on the quirky calendar. I thought it would be a really pretty idea to come up with some star and constellation ideas.

I started off using Miss Sporty's Metal Flip polish called 'Fiery Blaze'. It's an duochrome polish so I thought it would work great to create the look of a galaxy and depth. Then, using a large dotting tool and Sally Hansen's 'White On' I applied some dots to create a pattern. Using a small striper brush and the same white, I then connected the dots together to create some different constellation designs. Once the polish had dried I applied Barry M's Diamond Glitter over all of my nails to create some smaller star like detail. To finish it off I applied Barry M's Wet Set Quick drying top coat, and then it was complete!

I don't think they turned out as well as I had hoped, the lines weren't as small as I wanted but it still created the look of stars and constellations, so I was still happy with the final result! Have you created any constellation nail designs? What are your nails like this week? Let me know!

Until next time...
