Cosmic Nail Art

Because nail art is the biggest trend right now we searched the net for a good diy on nail art. On “Wear Pink on Wednesdays”  this blogger shows their readers how to make your nails cosmic.

What you Need
 - Black Nail Polish (Suggested: OPI in Black Onyx)
 - White Nail Polish (Suggested: Essie in Blanc)
 - Yellow Nail Polish (Suggested: OPI in Need Sunglasses)
 - Rosy Pink Nail Polish (Suggested: OPI in Sparrow Me The Drama)
 - Navy Blue Nail Polish (Suggested: OPI in Russian Navy)
 - Fine glitter topcoat (Suggested: China Glaze in Fairy Dust)
 - Makeup sponge
 - Toothpick

Nail Instructions
First, coat your nails in black polish (you can also use a dark purple if desired).  Once dry, use a makeup sponge to sponge on white polish in a diagonal line across your nail, creating your nebula.  If you don’t sponge on the white first, the other colors will not show up as well in the next steps.  Then use your makeup sponge again to sponge yellow polish over the white.  Repeat again with pink polish (you may also substitute the pink polish with a light blue).  Be sure to sponge the polish on thinly so that all three colors will be visible once completed. Next, sponge the navy polish around your nebula, fading it into your black base coat.  Clean around your nails with nail polish remover if necessary. Then to create the stars, dip your toothpick in the white polish one time and stipple it quickly along the outside of the nebula.  Add a few bigger stars by putting more white polish on your toothpick.  Once completed finish your Galaxy Nail look off with a very fine glitter topcoat which will create more stars and keep your new cosmic nails from chipping.  Below are some variations you can achieve by switching the colors and placements on your nails.  Have fun and experiment with different colors to create your perfect look!
