The famed galaxy nails.. surprisingly easy to do !
I've done galaxy nails a couple of times now and the initial prospect seemed rather daunting, but once I got going I was surprised to find out how easy it is to do, due to the forgiving nature of makeup sponges !
I've shown the time as a good two hours to do this design, as I find it always takes longer than you'd expect as you get carried away with the galaxy !
