Hello Fellow Nail Artists! I am so excited to share this nail art design with you! The polish is amazing and I couldn't be happier with the stamping result. To be honest, I am even having a hard time focusing on writing this post because I can't stop staring at my nails! Let me show you!
This is my first "Galaxy" polish and I don't think I could have chosen better than Dance Legend's Milky Way #843. The polish is somewhat sheer, applies beautifully and builds up easily. I am wearing 3 coats of polish and HK Girl's Fast Drying Topcoat for these photos.
The range of colors in this polish amazes me! I can see purple, teal, lavender, navy and even a little pink all at once just in a still shot. And there's lots of little silver sparkles mixed in. Remember blowing bubbles in the yard as a kid with the bottle of solution and the plastic wand? Every now and then a bubble would catch the sunlight just right and turn a rainbow of colors. That's what this polish reminded me of and how this post got it's name.
And on my index finger I was able to catch just the tiniest bit of the copper color you can see clearly on the bottle, but was quite elusive for the camera on my nails. It made an appearance in the main photo above as well. In real life the copper hue is visible frequently.
I wore the polish "naked" for a day just admiring it's beauty. But I am a nail artist at heart, so you know I had to try stamping over it. I had an idea in mind and poured through my plate collection trying to find just the right designs. I settled on Apipila P.14 and used Cheeky Jumbo N plate for the accent nail. I stamped with my favorite stamping polish, Mundo de Unas black. Three mixed sized black rhinestones completed the look.
Basecoat and Topcoat: Nail Tek Foundation II and HK Girl Fast Dry Topcoat
Polish: Dance Legend Milky Way #843
Stamping plates: Apipila P.14 and Cheeky Jumbo XL N
Stamping polish: Mundo de Unas Black (2)
Embellishments: 2mm and 3mm black rhinestones from The Born Pretty Store and Bundle Monster respectively
I have a tip for Mundo de Unas users from a member of one of my stamping groups. Use NON-acetone nail polish remover and a small brush or Q-tip to clean off the excess polish around your nails. I had been using pure acetone and still having the hardest time trying to scrub away the excess. With this tip it comes off so easily! I apologize that my memory doesn't allow me to credit the woman who shared this tip, but BLESS YOU if you happen to be reading!
As always, I would love to hear your thoughts on my post. I cherish your comments and read and reply to each one. I wanted to let you know that I will be changing the name of the blog in the next week or so. My social media accounts will also be changed to match. Aside from a few design tweaks, everything else will stay exactly the same. My existing posts will also remain accessible using any of the links out there in internet land. I hope you'll stick with me!
I hope you enjoyed this amazing polish and my nail art design! I'll see you at the next post.
