Pure Pearlfection, Luxeffects by Essie

Step 6: This is the most important step to really getting your nails to look like galaxies!

For this step, you need a clear nail polish/top coat with micro glitter. I chose this specific one because the glitters aren’t bulky, creating a more natural look.

However, I’ve seen other galaxy nail art that takes it a stop further using chunky glitter sparingly, in random areas to create the effect of twinkling stars (after the micro glitter coat).

In addition, I’ve also seen some where they use a tiny dotting tool/toothpick with white nail polish to create stars. I’ve even seen some stars drawn on with white polish.

But I honestly prefer this simpler look I’ve created, because I wanted the focal point to be solely on the galaxy design, not on the glitters or faux stars.
