Awesome Autumn! [Part 3/3]

Hello again, and welcome to the last part of my Autumn-themed posts!

Now, you might be thinking 'What has the galaxy got to do with Autumn?' and I wouldn't blame you!

The reason I'm doing this now is because for me, Autumn onward is the time of the year when I find myself stargazing more -- the sky just seems to be a little bit clearer, and perhaps the fact that the days get shorter means that I am more likely to be out when it's dark. So, in that sense, I connect this to Autumn in my head!

If it wasn't obvious from the picture, this is the first time I've ever tried galaxy nails. Honestly, I've seen this many times online and I've never felt brave enough to try it (in my head I thought 'This is going to look really awful' thanks to my love/hate relationship with makeup sponges, but I actually found it to be not as bad as I expected). I think the trick is knowing what sorts of colours to use, and not overloading the sponge but instead layering up bit by bit. With that in mind, I mainly used colours that had a slight shimmer to them so that it catches the light more, and here I've written a list of the colours I used, in case you were wondering.

Base colour:
Barry M - Navy
Galaxy colours applied with a sponge:
Rimmel - Luna Love
Rimmel - Hawaiian Punch
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Turquoise
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Deep Blue Sea
Barry M - SLE 2012 247
Maxfactor - Fantasy Fire
& finally Barry M - Matt White, which I also used to make stars with a dotting tool.


Well, thanks again for reading and I hope you liked these posts! :)
