Today’s nails are inspired by the cute hippie curtains that I have hanging on my bedroom windows! Here’s a pic of them- they’re batik tie dye panel curtains…
I think I did a good job replicating them! I started with two coats of my L.A. Girl 3D Effects Hologram Nail Polish called Brilliant Blue. Then I sponged on a bit of a black holo from the same collection called Black Illusion and also some NYC called Black Lace Creme. The moons were dotted on with a large dotting tool and some white wet n wild polish. Then I overlapped half of that white dot with a Brilliant Blue dot to make the crescent shape. That was easy! I made the stars with white polish and my smallest dotting tool. I was afraid they’d be difficult, but the tiny head of the dotting tool worked really well to shape the five points of the stars. I added some seche vite topcoat and now I’ve got some awesome galaxy nails! The only thing that would make them cooler is if the moons and stars glowed in the dark!

Yeah it kinda looks glassy! I love these la girl holos! I have maybe 5 or 6 of them.
Love these! You did a great job – I think you actually improved on the fabric you used for inspiration!
