Galaxy Nails 2.0

Hi! It's been a very long time since I've done galaxy nails, and since today is my Birthday I thought it'd make a nice Birthday mani (I hate the word mani, I really do) You can see my last attempt at this (which was also my first attempt) here. I think I've improved quite a lot, not only on the design but my pictures and nail shape too! 

The polishes I used are:

a-england Tristam (base)
Kiko Blue Spot
Illamasqua Poke
Illamasqua Nomad
Barry M Greenberry

Tristam was the perfect base because it already looks like a little galaxy all on its own! I drew on the stars with white acrylic paint and a dotting tool. I may add this to my list of tutorials to do.

More pictures ahead

The polishes - 

What do you think? A marked improvement on my last attempt?!



  1. pretty! i love how perfect it turned out! :)

  2. Happy birthday! Really love your galaxy nails :-)

  3. This is so gorgeous! Please do a tutorial of this soon! :)

  4. Happy Birthday!!! :)
    These look gorgeous!! I love that the galaxies arent so dark. and the mix of blues and purples is just stunning!

  5. Happy B-day :D You should be proud of yourself, I've seen quite an improvement! Your galaxy nails look amazing, and you're darn right: Tristam makes a great base, the places where it has not been covered look like stars far far away! :)

  6. Really pretty, I love the colour scheme you went for!! And happy birthday!! :)

  7. Happy birthday!

    These are wonderful :)

  8. Happy Birthday! I love the colours you used! Your nails look amazing - I love galaxy nails! :)

  9. Although I already said "Happy birthday" on you twitter account, I repeat it... Happy birthday!!!

    I really like galaxy nails and you are right about your first attempt and this one. You have improved so much on your technique... I love this one better!
    And I would really love to have your nail shape too, it's soooo perfect!


  10. happy birthday girl!! this is beautiful, you did an amazing job!

  11. HBD! What a lovely manicure ☼

  12. Happy birthday! Love the nails Abd love your blog! You've inspired me to try it out myself! X

  13. Such a lovely design. Happy birthday doll <3 xx

  14. Gorgeous! I never get tired of galaxy nails.

  15. Happy belated birthday! I also hate the word mani, but still use it anyways. I like that you kept it simple by using not too many polishes. I tend to use a lot of polishes for galaxy nails but most of the individual polishes get lost anyways - covered up by other polishes. I also enjoyed seeing your first attempt, it's always nice to see how we have improved! :)

  16. I have to try to do this sometime! They look awesome.

  17. Oh gosh almighty. I can never get enough of pretty galaxy nails... *dreamy*
