Space nails, and the 'nebula nail' trend have been gracing the intergalactic web for quite a while now, and after seeing a wonderful post on Beckah's blog, and seeing various pictures with amazing results, I couldnt help but give into the space nails trend and want to try it for myself.

Here are what mine turned out like on second attempt :)

I used quite a mix of 'shimmer based' nail varnishes, and built up from dark violets to turquoises, as I didn't have the preferred 'matte' base as required, but I thought they turned out quite well!

Has anyone else tried 'space nails', what did yours turn out like?
