The Lazy Goddess' Galaxy

While being totally in love with the amazing galaxy nail art that I've seen a lot of, I haven't felt the motivation to try the full effect myself.  This is my lazy way to achieve galaxy nails and I am absolutely in love with the way this turned out!  I have gotten so many complements on these nails and I can't seem to keep my eyes off them.  What's more, it's so simple!  Pardon if I get a little more picture happy than usual.

 Belive it or not, this started with a base color of Wet n' Wild Black Creme.  Over the top of that I added about three layers of Wet n' Wild Hannah Pinktana which is an amazing pink based holo shimmer. (Seriously, this is an awesome polish, run and get it now!)
 Once that was in place, I took Finger Paints Flashy and applied it on the diagonal across the center of the nail.  Then I took Finger Paints Flaecked and applied it in the areas in the upper and lower corner of the nail.
 Once that was all in place I applied a regular drying topcoat (not quick) and added  holographic silver stars to each nail, just one or two  depending on the nail size to accent. 
 This was followed by several layers of top coat (the star points had a tendency to try and curl up).  The final effect is even more impressive in person, the pictures just don't do it justice. 
 I felt that this gives me a good galaxy fix without the sponging and effort that some of the other looks require.  I hope you like it and try it yourself sometime. Thanks so much for stopping by and reading.  I love to read your comments, until next time, take care!
