Here’s an updated take on an old nail art technique known as galaxy nails. That’s basically beauty speak for “sponge a bunch of colourful polishes onto your nails in a nebulae-like fashion, top with tiny pinprick planets and GO!” But no actual “Guardians of the” in this post (wee confession regarding the movies: I no like) – just trying to guard these pretty galaxy nails from chips and general destruction. 🙂
Cinco de Mayo-inspired nails, just cinco or so days late. 😉 All of the beautiful design work, none of my pesky inability to draw skulls, even skulls with candy hearts for eyes.
Parenthetically, it’s been an absolute eternity since I’ve sat down with a random bunch of polishes and just gone to town on a super detailed design; I’ve missed it. I mean, Mickey nails are great and all, but sometimes you want a bit more than three dots in the shape of a mouse head. Why you’d want more than that I truly don’t know, but I think it’s pretty well established that I’ve got a wicked case of Disney Brain and can see nothing but three dots in the shape of a mouse head anyways. I think that’s why I like this manicure so much – a decided lack of Disney, will wonders never cease! Enjoy it while it lasts, folks.
