I started off with two coats of No7 Beautifully Black- a lovely black with black and silver glitter. I then went a little crazy and added lots of different polishes over my nails at random using a cotton bud as a tiny sponge applicator. I generally started with the darker shades and worked up to the lighter shades. I topped that all off with a coat of my lovely Collection 2000 Sparkle Top Coat, and finally added little dots of e.l.f. Pearl with the smallest dotting tool I have :)
Prepare for photo spam!
Some of my dots (stars!) came out a little larger than I would have wanted, but I'm actually really pleased with how they came out. Especially as I had a moment about halfway through where my nails look awful- like a bunch of polishes had just exploded all over them... but they came together with the sparkle top coat and I love it! I particularly love Fantasy Fire and Amethyst, they give such a pretty, multi-dimensional effect to the nails- I hope it came through in the pictures :)

Have you ever tried galaxy nails? You should- they're so much easier than they look! :)
