Nail Art Tutorial: Cosmic Nails

I planned another nail art tutorial for you but when I opened my box of Nail Art Tools, all my materials from 2-Way Nail Art Pens to my favorite L.A. Colors Art Deco polishes are dried out --- come on, 5 long years of not using them?  Siyempre naman!

So instead of sulking, I've decided to pick a sponge and create Cosmic Inspired Nail Art Design.  Since my son is so much into Space, my nails immediately puts a big smile on his cute li'l face!

What you need: 
Sponge, Base Shade and at least 2 shades to create gradient nails.
Lastly, let's not forget that quick dry top coat because I'm always rushing!

Step 1:
I picked a nude colored polish from Inglot under their O2M Breathable Nail Enamel Line.  The shade is in 677.

Applied 2 coats and let dry --- COMPLETELY DRY.

Step 2:
Girlstuff Nail Lacquer in Soiree reminds me so much of Space.  So I picked this one up and used a sponge (Etude House Brush sponge that I haven't used forever!).  Apply a good amount as shown on photo below and gently dab on your nails.

Step 3:
I honestly think silver glitters would look best on this nail art design but since I can't find one and it was 12mn *laughs*  Picked Girlstuff Nail Lacquer in HOPE directly on the tips of the nails and gently blend downwards without adding polish.  

At the latter part, I've decided to at a tiny bit at the bottom of the nails to create that "Dripping Glitter" effect.

Step 4:
Once everything is completely dry, apply a good amount of Girlstuff Fast Dry Top Coat because this will protect your art at the same time, adds shine and let it dry pretty quickly!

Very simple Cosmic Nails!
