Constellation Manicure

This month has been all about the stars, and I’m not talking about the Hollywood kind. It being the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon, Mercury being in retrograde pretty much for the whole month, to the recent obsession with Area 51, it’s hard to not be thinking about outer space lately! Here’s an easy nail art design you can put together to join in the madness.

My first step was to paint my nails with this cool glittery black jelly polish from Julep called Celeste. I needed to apply 3 coats to get good coverage as jelly polishes can be pretty sheer. I love the iridescent glitter combination that they used because it sparkles and really looks like a built in galaxy.

Neon Rainbow Pride Nails

It’s June, and pretty much the entire month is associated with Pride celebrations. I was playing with drag diva pianist Jacqueline Jonée for her shows, so I wanted to do a set of rainbow nails to complement her “50 Shades of Jonée” theme. I’ve been itching to try out my neon powders with stamping, so keep reading to see how this was achieved!

I started by painting all my nails black with Black Lace, a color from Sephora’s ancient “5 day shine” series of nail lacquers. This polish was part of a set that was gifted to me for my birthday 9 years ago, and it still works great!
