Galaxy Nails

I always see pictures of galaxy nails and I've always wanted to try them out. I love how they look and how no nail looks the same. I finally decided to try it and it was so easy! All I did was paint my nails with a black base color and then randomly sponge on colors to make my nail look like mini galaxies!! I also put a glitter polish on to look like stars. Before I did these I looked up pictures of purple galaxies and I used a few pictures to get color ideas. I like these nails so much that I want to try them again in a different color!

Tropical Gradient

I have another sponged gradient to show you! I was trying to go for a tropical feel with red, orange, and yellow colors :) It's already hot were I live and I wanted to try out something bright! I used a white base then sponged the colors on in different places on each nail so that they wouldn't all look alike. Then I added some light gold glitter. When I was done they reminded me of a Big Stick Popsicle!!!  I love these nails so much that I've decided to enter them into the Rite Aid Nails Extravaganza!

Pink Purple & Blue Gradient


I've been trying to plan some nail art stuff to try out lately and today's post is one of them! I wanted to do a colorful gradient/sponge mani. I picked out 3 colors that I thought would work together and just started sponging the polish on at different parts of the nail. I did that over a white base coat. When I was done I just added a shimmery topcoat. I love how they turned out and that the gradient is just random and doesn't all go in the same direction. I hope you liked this post :)
