Today I’m going to show you a cute little galaxy manicure that was inspired by a nail polish that I recently obtained. Because it’s a magnetic polish, I first painted my nails with Johnny from Julep to provide a dark base.
The stunning polish I’m about to show you is Aurora Borealis from the Born Pretty 3D Magnetic Aurora Series, and it’s absolutely beautiful! It has a chameleon effect that shifts from turquoise to a reddish purple in addition to having magnetic qualities. I applied one coat of this over the black polish and then immediately held a cat eye magnet over each nail at a diagonal angle for a few seconds while the polish was still wet so the pattern could form. I swear that my nails actually do look like a real aurora borealis!
Because the magnetic polish looked so much like a night sky, I decided to add some out of this world stamping over it using the Time Machine BM-XL134 plate from Bundle Monster (now called Maniology) and Ya Qin An stamping polish in Silver.
I used patterns from all over this plate to create the scene below. It’s definitely not the Milky Way, but it looks cool!
Hope you enjoyed this fun look! Happy polishing!
