Leanne has never done galaxy nail art and I love galaxy nails so much, so, for this guest post, I challenged her to do galaxy nails for the first time ever. She used some pretty polishes and they turned out fab so I hope to see more nail art from Leanne in the future.

Hey everyone! I am super honoured to guest blog for the lovely, talented Chrissie! She recently set me a challenge of Galaxy nails, something I have never tried before as my nailart skills are quite .... amateur! Haha! But it has been so fun playing around, and I think I've done ok?
First of all, here is a list of products used to create this look:
• Models Own - hypergel - Inky Blue
• China Glaze - White on White
• Nails Inc - SouthWalk
• Mrs.Cross nail shop - Blue Nog
• Nails Inc - Electric Lane
• Seche Vite - topcoat
• Nail envy - basecoat
• UberChic mat
I first watched a tutorial on YouTube for guidance - http://youtu.be/8WaiHzNc-Jk
Next I selected my lighter blue, SouthWalk, and dabbed this on around the White. As advised in the tutorial - less is more! Once I was happy, I chose my very light blue, Blue Nog and used the same process.
It all sounds so simple, and the tutorial made it look so easy, but my gosh my hand was shaking haha!
Next I applied one very thin coat of Electric Lane for the twinkly stars, then used my toothpick to dot on some white dots for brighter stars.
Once these steps were finished, I sealed it all in with my Seche Vite topcoat.
What do you guys think? Not bad for a first try?Thank you Chrissie so much for the opportunity to guest on your blog, and for giving me something new to try.
