Purple Galaxy Nails

Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying this fall Sunday.  It feels super early since we "fell back" last night but it's nice to gain that extra hour :)  Today I have a pretty chill day planned, just bumming around the house and getting various blog, etsy, and cleaning stuff done.  

Today I have a mani that I wore last week.  I wasn't even planning on doing it but I had painted my nails with OPI Plugged-in Plum and felt like doing some nail art.  The list of polishes used is very long and I'll include what I used a little farther down.

Polishes used include: OPI Plugged-in Plum, Maybelline Color Show Green with Envy (mint), OPI Haven't the Foggiest, OPI In the Cable Car-pool Lane, Zoya Storm, China Glaze Fairy Dust, and Maybelline Color Show Porcelain Party.

I started with my base color and then layered on all the above colors with a makeup sponge, gradually building up the color.  I used a dotting tool, nail art brush, and a q-tip for the white stars and then finished off with strokes of Fairy Dust.

I loved the final look and definitely plan on trying different colors of galaxy nails.  I think red would look really cool!  What do you think?


  1. Looooove!!! Galaxy nails are my favorite! I think red would be awesome! :D

  2. I love the purple galaxy idea! Galaxy nails are so pretty, and I really hope that you do a red one too! :)

  4. This is so pretty! A red version of this would look so nice! :)

  5. Gorgeous look - I love the gradient effect and the top coat, very creative. I'd love to see similar in blue :). xx

  6. Wow. That's a whole lot of polishes you used for this! I never would have guessed that many shades went into this - thanks for the list.

  7. I love galaxy prints right now! So fun.

    I liked gaining the extra hour, but now it gets dark so early.
