Drip, drip, drip...

Hello cupcakes!

I've got some nail art today that I've been wanting to try for a very long time. I had some free time the other day and thought I'd give them a try and boy am I sure glad I did! ;) 

So.... galaxy drip nails anyone? 

I used a lot of colors here but I'm going to try to remember what I used. I started with a base of ELF Sea Escape. Then I used a torn up makeup sponge and sponged on Maybelline Color Show Navy Narcissist, Color Club Eternal Beauty, Lime Crime Parfait Day, and Azature White to create the galaxy look. Then I put on some dots and a few stars with white acrylic paint. After that was dry I painted a layer of China Glaze Fairy Dust. And FINALLY I created the drips using Azature White. *deep breath* LOL!  






*Ahem* I think these nails are out of this world if I do say so myself ;) Besides taking forever to create I loved having these on I think I actually kept them on for like four days! I wonder if there is an easier way to do this design though.. I feel like doing the galaxy nails on all my nails was kind of a waste of time because I covered so much of it up. Hmmmmm... must do some research!! :)

Thanks so much loves!

  1. These look amazing! I have always wanted to dry this design out but was slightly intimidated by it. I think I just need to sit down and give them a shot!

  4. Oh WOW...me likey a lot!!! I wonder if you could paint your nails white then mask off the nail bed & just do the tips for drips? Clear as mud?

    1. I thought of doing that, maybe it would work better I just liked the idea of doing the whole thing because the galaxy looks so put together.. hmmmm that might just work though!! Thanks so much Inky!! <3

  5. Gorgeous! These turned out beautiful!!

    If anything I would just do half the nail. But if you plan on leaving a drip spot further down, you're pretty much stuck doing it all. Definitely worth a little looking for an easier way though.

    1. That's a really good idea! I mean even if I want to do a drop it's so small I can just do it individually. Thanks so much lady!! :)
