Boring name for a post, I know. I'm running very short on sleep here - got home earlier today from a few days on tour performing with a ballet company, and I have to get up and do a full day of classes tomorrow again... It was such an amazing experience though, totally worth it! Anywho, somehow what started out as plans for a pastel blue galaxy mani ended up looking like turquoise, so I'm just rolling with it.
I started with a base of China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, and when that was dry I randomly sponged on a bunch of different blue polishes. I can't remember exactly what I used since I did this a few weeks ago, but I'll try my best! On the nail you're most likely seeing Essie In The Cab-ana and Rock The Boat, OPI I Have A Herring Problem and Can't Find My Czechbook, Orly Snowcone, and piCture pOlish Honey Dew.
It's all topped off with one coat of Orly Prisma Gloss Gold, which is where I think I went wrong with the whole pastel galaxy idea. In retrospect, it really needed a silver glitter topper instead of a gold. I then decided to add a coat of Essie Matte About You, which made me like the look a bit more.
Overall, I wasn't too happy with this look initially, but it did grow on me throughout the day as I wore it! What do you think of this look? :)
