I was a little coral-ed out and wanted to wear black nail polish (harkening back to my emo high school days). I've been wanting to try galaxy nails for awhile so thought it was a nicer way to spruce up plain black nails. Now there are many tutorial versions out there. This is my interpretation but feel free to change/add colors, not use a glitter top coat and instead opt for dots. You can really make them your own.

I first applied Zoya's Gaia as the white base but when I sponged it, the white disappeared and a gold shimmer was left on my nail. I decided to go with it!
Much like the Ombre/Gradient effect: add the teal and pink color with the white in the middle onto a sponge. my nail until it formed a nebula looking cloud.
I topped it off with a gold glitter top coat to look like stars in the sky.

I'm obsessed with these nails - they are a new favorite!
