Keep the galaxy close to you
I watch so many tutorials on youtube and blogs and they always use expensive nail polish brands like OPI and Essie and China Glaze. These colours look absolutely beautiful but I simply can afford them. I buy the cheapest polish I can get and I still have pretty polished nails. You don't need expensive nail polish.

(The crack in my nail is caused by my sewing machine. I can't polish it.)

  • Step 1

    You will need:
    - black nail polish
    - blue nail polish
    - pink nail polish
    - small glitter nail polish
    - top coat
    - big glitter nail polish
    - make up/foundation sponge
    - nail polish remover
    - paint brush

  • Step 2

    Make sure your nails are clean and have the shape you want them to have.

  • Step 3

    Make your nails black and let them dry.

  • Step 4

    Put a little drop of blue polish on the make up sponge and dot the colour on your nail. Not the whole nail, only a piece of the nail. Let it dry and repeat it with the pink nail polish. It will look smooth and the colours will blend together.

  • Step 5

    Apply a thin layer of the small glittered nail polish. Let it dry.

  • Step 6

    Now, use the big glittered nail polish. Don't polish the whole nail with it, place a few (like three or four) glitters on each nail.

  • Step 7

    Use the top coat to make the polish last longer and make it extra shine.

  • Step 8

    You probably have nail polish on your finger. Dip the brush in the remover and remove the spilled polish. I always used a cotton pad but with the brush you can make really sharp edges. The result will be so much better.

  • Step 9

    Now, don't be impatient. Let the nail polish dry!
