Galaxy nails

I've tried to do galaxy nails on a number of occasions but kept failing miserably! But this time, I love them!

Avon midnight blue. Models Own: Fuzz peach, aciiid, snow white, jade stone,  juicy jules.
 Ebay white nail art pen
I have come to the conclusion that galaxy nails picture better than they look in real life? On camera they look so smooth, but they don't look as smooth in real life! I do love them though, wish they were a tad more sparkly! The first time I tried these nails I ruined them with the stupid amount of juicy jules I put on top, so I tried to use it sparingly... I just can't get that happy medium lol! Link me to your nails if you have done these :)

If you want to try them, there's a fair few tutorials on YouTube... but my suggestion is just try your own thing, coz if your anything like me.. your nail art never turns out as good as the girls on YouTube so it's easier not to compare lol! Oh, and do one nail at a time, as otherwise the nail varnish dries and doesn't smudge and give the same galaxy effect.. (It took me a while to figure this out lol). One last tip... lots and lots of topcoat really blends it all together and gives a finishing touch!
