.. 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

Picture of 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)

Step 2: Step 1

Paint all nails black.

Step 3: Step 2

Take a first color (In this case, green) and paint a corner of the sponge with that color. Then dab it on to the nail. It shall leave the nail, in this case, with this case, a subtle green tinge. Then do it with the next color (magenta) , and then the last (blue).

Step 4: Step 3

Apply a coat of the very sparkly polish. These are the stars!! And with this, you're done (Just apply a top coat after about 30 minutes). I hope you enjoy this super cute design! Be sure to rate and leave comments! Also, follow me! I post new instructables often! Thank you and enjoyy! :D

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!
