Fly Me To The Moon

10:57 PM

Hi there~

Today I will present you a mani I did for the "Monday Nail Art Challenge" of the Polish-aholics Anonymous FB group.

The theme was "sponging". So I decided to do a space mani because I wanted to blend different shades of blue with pink and black and because space has always facinated me.

So here is what I came up with.

Space mani

What I used:
- MNY 661, a metallic blue with subtile shimmer. I used it as the base color (it's the bottle I'm holding in the picture)
- Then I sponged with light blue, Art Deco Sky Blue,
 - MNY 107A, a metallic pink
 - and Essence 20 Fatal, a black cream.
- Finally I added Klean Color 28 Chunky Silver, for the hex silver glitters.
And it was done!

  1. Very nice mani! I've already seen it on the FB group, but wanted to wait for your post here ;) Looks really space-y! ♥
    How many layers do you sponge one color usually?

  2. Thanks, Kayono!
    I used 2 coats of the blue base coat. And then took some polish on a makeup songe (I painted the sponge a part of the sponge with the polish lol) and dabbed it slowly onto the nail (2-3 times). Here I sponged with 3 different colors (light blue, pink and black). I first sponged the light blue and then went a little over it with the pink and black.
