A galaxy far, far away

'Click me, I'm huge!'
Hi everybody! Last post I had some layering fun with OPI Russian Navy as base color. After layering it with Ulterior Motive and Last Friday Night, I ended up with this beautiful blend of different colored shimmer and glitter that looked like a galaxy filled with stars. I've always been fascinated by astronomy, ever since I was little, especially stars look so wonderful, beyond gorgeous. Anyway, I was very curious to see what the mani would look like with a layer of matte topcoat and this is it. You can't get closer to the real deal than this!

  14. Friday Night Lights is an OUTSTANDING Glitter. I used the essie matte topcoat, and it gave it a mermaid effect.
