Aussie Nails Monday: Galaxy Nails

Today's Aussie Nails Monday theme is Galaxy. I've seen galaxy nails done heaps of times but they always looked too difficult for me to try myself... Turns out they're actually pretty easy! I started with a black base, and sponged on Picture Polish Tiffany, China Glaze Frostbite, Ulta3 Purple Passion and Ulta3 Lily White (in that order). I painted the gaps with China Glaze Fairy Dust, added the little white dots to represent stars, and dabbled a coat of Alanna Renee Milky Way over the top. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out!

Please excuse the terrible cleanup (or lack thereof), the lighting in my living room isn't very good and I didn't realise I hadn't cleaned up properly until I loaded the photos onto the computer.

Here are the other girls participating in Aussie Nails Monday:

In other nail polish related news, I received these beautiful colours as an extremely generous birthday present from my grad project supervisor, who I will also be working with at my new job in a couple of weeks! She has such great taste in nail polish. We often share news about Illamasqua sales with each other. I'm so excited to try the Chanels, both Blue Rebel and Paradoxal have been lemmings of mine for a long time. And aren't those Estee Lauder bottles amazing?
