Today is DAY 13/STARS DAY of the Oh Mon Dieu Nail Challenge! I love celestial-themed stuff, especially in blue and yellow… so that’s my inspiration for today’s nail art!
This blue polish is amazing! It’s called Midnight Blue by Sinful Colors. If you apply it carefully it could definitely be a one-coater. I love how intense it is- so bright n shiny! Then I used a short skinny striper brush to paint the yellow stars using Zoya Pippa. Pippa was not the best for this type of nail art. It kept getting stringy when I pulled the brush off my nail. I’ll try to remember that next time I do sugar spun nails. It’s stringy-ness could come in handy for that!
I can’t wait to see the other star designs today! Here’s the link:

I’d also like to mention that someone recently contacted me asking if it’s too late to join the challenge- but I’m unable to email you since the messages all come back undeliverable. Just know- it’s not too late! You can start now at day 13, or you can start on a previous day if you like any of the past themes. I hope to see you soon!
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!
Here’s a super quick post of my new years nails. I used nails inc magnetic polish called The Strand.
I put a glitter star in the center of each magnetic burst!
I’ve included a shot of the package of glitter I purchased at Michael’s craft store. Much more affordable than buying it at a beauty supply store.
Happy New Years everyone! I’m heading out to celebrate! now. See you in 2013!
