Unicorns in Space! (31DC2015)

Unicorn in Space Hand

Or one unicorn, singular.

Galaxy nails were the order of the day for September 19th in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I don’t do many galaxy manicures – it’s mostly just a lot of sponge painting and glitter, and I’ve got enough of that in my repertoire already. Also, I find space to be singularly uninspiring. I prefer the more watery “space” that’s up to 2,500 kilometers straight down.

All that to say I didn’t exactly give this manicure my all, which is of course why it turned out better than any galaxy mani I’ve ever attempted before. For these fluky nails, I brushed on two coats of a black creme polish before randomly sponging on three frosty lacquers in hot pink, baby pink and dark teal. The frosty polishes were a good choice, adding a hit of twinkling shimmer. They also layered really nicely over the black creme, blending together into a bruise-hued mass of cosmic clouds.

I then brushed on one coat of Enchanted Polish’s fittingly-named Instant Galaxy, a holographic topper speckled with iridescent blue glitter. After that dried, I brushed on a smattering of holographic stars with Liquid Sky Lacquer’s megawatt silver holo, Dream. Finally, I set a prancing silver unicorn charm from Daily Charme on my middle finger (not my usual accent nail choice, but this particular space unicorn is on the larger size, and I didn’t think my ring finger would accommodate his galloping girth.)
