Here comes 19th day, today is for Galaxy mani!

First, I had no idea why theme “Galaxy” is placed here. I asked google as usual; and that’s my first contact to the galaxy mani :) Of course I haven’t tried this yet and looked so fun and cool, I HAD to try this out. I’ve started with piCture pOlish’s stunning black jelly packed with tons of holographic flake; it seemed to be great starter for galaxy mani due to its finish AND its name, “Starry night” ;)

Then I grabbed q-tip, soaked a bit with polish and patted gently on the surface to create galaxy-like look. I started with white creme, added sheer glass fleck polishes with blue, red or bronze, added hint of color-shift shimmers and holographic glitters. Well, not bad for my first attempt, right? Actually I liked the result! It’s really funny that it looks more space-y in photos rather than IRL :P

19日目のテーマは「Galaxy=銀河」!……ってまた意味の解んねえの来たなと思ってたのですが、過分にして知らなかったのですが世の中にはGalaxy Nailなるネイルデザインのカテゴリがあるようで。やったことねーやー、だったので今回実践してみました。基本的に黒の上にスポンジや綿棒で適当に色をポンポン乗せてそれっぽく!というものなので然程大変な思いをすることも無く仕上がりました。

面白いのはこれ実際のネイルそのものよりも撮った写真の方が凄く「それっぽく」見えるようになること。普通逆なんですがね、ボケ足が上手く出るからでしょうかね。地に塗ったStarry nightのフレークラメがほんのり透けてるのと、あと最後にさらっとひと塗りしたラメ入りトップがいい雰囲気を出してくれたかな。ちなみにStarry nightはTiNSのプチボヌールシリーズなどに入っているいわゆる美細ラメとやらと同じものが入っている感じです。透け感のある黒で重たくなり過ぎなくて素敵です(´∀`)
