February Nail Art Challenge Day 1 - Galaxy nails

Yay!!!! Its finally here!!! I've been looking forward to this challenge for many reasons. Firstly, because Erica's challenges are always great fun and I love seeing everyone's designs. Secondly, NO WATER MARBLING! I do a little happy dance every time I read through the challenge days and see that I haven't got to go through that torture this time round! Don't get me wrong, I've got a lot better at it and I love the way it looks when its done properly, but I really, really, really do not have the patience or temperament for it.

So, day 1 - Galaxy nails. I've always loved doing these and love introducing new colours into the mix. I've played it pretty safe with these, but am really happy with the way they turned out.

I started with a base of Color Club Blue-Topia, added Color Club Oooooo La La, Models Own Lemon Meringue, Collection 2000 Hot Looks Bright Lights, Jessica Electric Teal, Models Own Feeling Blue, LA Colors Black Velvet and Sally Hansen Twinkle Twinkle and a top coat of Seche Vite (phew, didn't realize there were that many colours involved!). 

The first pic has the challenge sign, but the pics that follow are zoomed in more to show the detail...








Can't wait to see everyone else's work - see you all in a couple of days for Half Moons...

  1. WOW!! <3
    And there was not water marbling this time around because it didn't get a majority vote (it was voted off the island this time'round) ;) I think a lot of people have a slight "hate" on for water marbling and even though I love it, I left it up to the fans to help decide what would be on the Challenge :)
