Big cheer for my first attempt at galaxy nails! I saw THIS tutorial for pastel galaxy nails and just had to try it - I love how pretty and light it is! I'm looking forward to practicing and perfecting this look, now that I know how easy it actually is! (I also really want to try this look with a matt top coat, like in the original, but I haven't yet been able to get my hands on one :( Let me know if you have a recommendation.)

Polishes used:

essence - that's what i mint (base colour, mint - seen here)
tip top - surfer girl (shimmery pastel purple - seen here)
tip top - beach babe (baby blue - seen here)
essence - wanna be your sunshine (shimmery yellow - seen here)
tip top - snowflake (white/translucent glitter)
essence - make me holo (subtle blue holo effect)
mavala - sparkling silver (silver glitter - seen here)
revlon - (white  - seen here)

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous!!! You've just inspired me to try it as well!

    I have a Tip Top matte top coat as well as an Essence one but I belive they have both been discontinued. I have heard great things about the Gosh matte top coat available at red square.
