Erica's Nails and More February Nail Art Challenge - Day 9

It's such a sad day!! :(( Today is the final day of Erica's Nails and More February Nail Art Challenge *sniff* I love these challenges because it helps me go outside my comfort level and do things I wouldn't usually do :D

So today's theme is "Recreate Your Favorite".. it could be recreating a day you've already done, or recreating another participant's mani. I knew exactly what I wanted to do! :P

I chose to recreate Day 1 - Galaxy Nails. I completely fell in love with the whole aspect of galaxy nails, and how one nail or design never looks the same as another.. and the color combinations are endless! I think I did pretty good the first time around, but after I did these the other night, it's my absolute favorite of any nail art I've done :D <3

I used Milani Black Swift as my base color, then sponged on Sinful Colors Snow Me White. Then I went in with Wet n Wild Root of All Evil, added more Snow Me White, then sponged on Wet n Wild Toxic Apple. After that, I sponged on China Glaze Pink Plumeria, went back in with Snow Me White and Root of All Evil, and added a little more Pink Plumeria. Dotted on some "stars" using the smallest dotting tool and Snow Me White, let dry, added China Glaze Fairy Dust, and top coated with HK Girl top coat! I'm telling you, these pictures don't do this mani any justice! It is so much more beautiful in person <3

I'm so sad this is the last day! :( I may have to find another challenge or start my own! :P
