FINALLY I CAN HAVE SPACE ON MY NAILS.
unfortunately i need more detailed instructions than this, lbr
JUST FOR YOU DD I UTILIZED MY MAD SEARCH SKILLZ:
APPLY BACKGROUND COLOR AND FIRST NEBULA’S HIGHLIGHT
Using a dark shade, preferably a deep blue or black, apply one or two coats of nail polish on top of your base coat to serve as the base color of your space design. Then sponge on your first layer of light color (we used a pale green) in thin layers and allow to dry. This serves as a starting highlight in the background of your nebula.
CREATE THE NEBULAE
Use a sponge to lightly dab a thin layer of a bright color (we chose pink) onto the base of your nebula. If you get too much polish on the sponge, just dab it off on the paper. Wait one to two minutes between each application so that the colors can dry. When you put another coat on top of a color, the lacquers re-activate and are easier to blend because the layers are wet again. Repeat process with as many colors as you want.
ADD GLITTER AND TOP COAT
Add stars by applying one or two coats of a glitter polish on top of your design. We suggest using a nail polish that contains different size glitter to give the illusion of dimension and distance. To make sure your new space-age manicure will last, apply a top coat and you’re ready to blast off!

SPACE NAILS YES
This week I created a Daisy Centerpiece just for you. The best part? It is made from cupcake liners. Fun!
I have these old candle holders that are really cool, but I do not like to put candles on them because I have a curious four year old. So I decided that they needed a make over. They look very classy and they will never wilt or die. And in my case, cause allergies to go through the roof.
Have fun with this. It is super easy and a great way to dress up any old candle sticks, vases, plates or chargers.
