In a Galaxy Far, Far Away

Hi everyone!  Since I have heard people say, "May the fourth be with you", about a hundred times today, it seemed fitting to rock a galaxy mani!!


I started with two coats of Barielle Blackened Bleu, a dark smokey jelly with a strong blue shimmer.


Next, I used Sally Hansen White On with a bit of Hard Candy Beetle and sponged on the galactic sections.  Beetle ended up giving White On a blueish grey appearance, with a shifting bronze shimmer.


I then applied two coats of Soflajo Dew Drop, a beautiful clear coat with silver shimmer and prismatic hexagon glitters.  It has a great formula, smooth application, and really tied the look together.


I was hoping that the hexagons would work for the appearance of larger stars, but they were a bit reluctant to come out of the bottle.


So I then used my small dotting tools with White On to create a few randomly placed stars, and finished with one coat of SV.


This was such a fun mani to create!  It was kind of full of surprises, but thankfully in a good way!
I hope you enjoy ... and may the fourth be with you!!!

Happy Painting!
