I love all the galaxy manicures that I’ve seen people doing, so I decided to make my own version for you. What you’ll need to do this tutorial:

  • a base coat polish. I use Cult Nails Get it On Base Coat.
  • a shiny top coat polish. I use HK Girl Glisten & Glow.
  • a perfect one coat black nail polish. I use Cult Nails Nevermore.
  • a color changing shimmery polish. I use Cult Nails Charlatan.
  • a holographic top coat polish. I use Nina Ultra Pro Holographic Top Coat.

Cult Nails Galaxy Manicure Tutorial

  1. Start with your base coat. This protects your nails from being discolored by a polish and also helps your manicure to stick around longer.
  2. Apply your perfect one coat black creme polish. This is a great base for doing nail art.
  3. Apply your color changiing polish. If you have longer nails, you will want to make a sort of S squiggle up and down the nail. If you have shorter nails, you may want to paint just inside the black, sort of leaving a black edge around the color.
  4. Use 1 to 2 coats of your holographic top coat.
  5. Finish with your super shiny top coat.
