Another great link-up with the ladies of Hobby Polish Bloggers is here - yes indeed! This month's theme is Starry Night Sky, so keep reading to see my take on it!
I cannot express how thankful I am for the incredible ladies of HPB! This week especially, I feel like I've been constantly posting questions in the group. But because of these ladies and their helpfulness, I was able to not only find and purchase one of my lemming polishes this week, but also had help creating my very first Instagram account! So thanks to everyone who answered my pestering questions! And if you want, come follow The Nail Smith on Instagram (#milliethenailsmith)!
I've been planning on doing another galaxy mani for a while, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity. I started with a base of Avon Inked Up, a nearly black navy blue. This polish is a one-coater, people. One coat, full coverage! When all of my nails were completely dry, I masked my cuticles with liquid latex for easy cleanup. Then I sponged on the following colors with a makeup sponge: A England Saint George (another recent purchase that I LOVE!), Essie Go Overboard, OPI Can't Find My Czechbook, Serum No. 5 Pure Glow Getter. When I was happy with the layering, I added some tiny stars with a detail brush and Pure Glow Getter. I tried to get some cool glow pics with Pure Glow Getter but I think because I only sparsely sponged it on over the dark base, my camera was being too picky about picking it up. Sadness... but it really does glow super pretty in the dark, like a real galaxy!
