For this manicure I used a base of Zoya Storm. I then starred at it for a while since it is just so gorgeous and truly a galaxy in itself. I really shouldn't have used such a beautiful base since none of it is left visible. Every time I tell myself that I will start out with just a cream black, I reach for the pretty blacks instead. I sponged a bunch of Zoya polishes (Megan, Julie, Yara, Noot and Noel) to create the galaxy. I then sponged on a holographic top coat to give it some shimmer and followed all that with white splatter stars using acrylic paint.
I have not been happy with the last few galaxy manicures that I have made. In fact I made a different one for this challenge and disliked it so much that I took it off without even taking a single photo of it. I'm really pleased with the way this one finally turned out especially since I was starting to think my galaxy manis are cursed...
The beautiful base was Zoya Storm which is a black jelly with holographic glass fleck particles. These photos don't capture it's true beauty since all the holographic flecks look white here, but are very colorful in real live. It applies very easily and provides good coverage at two coats although I did use three for these swatches. This is definitely one of my favorite blacks in my collection!
