*Purchased By Me
Hey guys! I’ve recently subscribed to join Polish Days, which is basically where a group of bloggers come together on a specific day to do a specific theme! ^^
This month’s theme is “To Boldly Go… ” and it falls on Tuesday, 11th June, 8pm BST. This means that it is happening on the 12th for me in Singapore…or so I hope (that I’ve converted the timing correctly.)
Anyways I had several thoughts in mind for this, ranging from the usual galaxy nail art(which I can’t achieve) to Space Invaders (I’ve never even played that game). I finally decided on a mani that is inspired by Meghan of Will Paint Nails For Food.
I could only do 3 fingers this time round, due to my cut on my index finger the week I did nail art… ): But here it is!
I started out with a base of The Face Shop GR501 and added a thin coat of Different Dimension Light It Up Blue.
*Note: somehow my bottle of Light It Up Blue was really goopy…anyone knows whether it will spoil if I add thinner? ):
I also manually placed the white hex glitters as somehow none translated to my nails, but I only wanted a few to give the appearance of larger stars.
I drew in the rest using my gel pens.
- metallic gold Uniball Signo pen
- metallic silver Uniball Signo pen
- white Uniball Signo pen
- black Uniball Signo 0.38 pen
- metallic purple/red pen from Franc Franc
I also added on a silver star shaped glitter for the shooting star on my ring finger.
The overall effect is rather cute, and I do think the glitters in Light It Up Blue contribute to the appearance of a galaxy in space.
I honestly prefer Meghan’s version as her nail art is much more neater than mine. I will definitely try this look again! ^^
I did not try to take any glow in the dark photos, apologies for that as I did not wear this mani long enough. I did attempt to take a photo of the shimmer, which can be seen above.
Meghan’s look was inspired by mobile toys, and I do think it ties in with the Polish Days theme. For a young kid, dreams and aspirations are very important… perhaps they will grow up and “boldly go” into the world of adulthood, taking steps towards their goals! (:
