.. Or as my mom would like to call "Dark and glittery nails". These nails are so fast and easy, I was shocked I haven't tried them out earlier! This step-by-step instructable will show you exactly how to do this design! Please rate, comment, and check out my other designs! If you like what you see, follow me! :) Thank you and enjoy!

Step 1: Materials

Basically, you'll need a black polish, 3 polishes representing the galaxy, (I used a blue, green, and a magenta- Go for colors that shine and sparkle!) an all-sparkle polish, a topcoat, and a cosmetic sponge. (Yes, It has to be a cosmetic sponge- I tried other sponges and they ended with failure. I got a 32-pk of cosmetic sponges at Target for $1.77)
Very cute! A little tip for those who hate getting polish on their skin, rub a thin layer of Vaseline around the cuticle and when the polish is dry just wipe the Vaseline off! Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to get my nail polish.
Lol my gerbil is named Galaxy! This is super cool! By the way, they have clear w/ rainbow sparkles polish these days so it would be a LOT easier with that and black polish. I will do one hand in this and one hand in your sunset nails to represent my gerbils Maui and Galaxy!
Oh, how cute! I think I'm going to need to try this. :D
