Space Nails/ Madness!/ Angry Paint Splattered Painting

Just as a side note, I also added a form spring on my side bar so feel free to ask me any questions!

After reading Asami's Space Nails manicure, I made an attempt to re-create her masterpiece.

Since I don't have any black nail polish, I used Chanel's Blue Satin (which is the darkest nail polish I own). It is an extremely sexy color with shine and glitter.

I also took a close-up picture just to show what the color really looks like. I know this isn't really a great photo, but this will do.

So I didn't realize how much polish had gotten on my cuticles! Sorry for the dirtiness! I used an OPI glittery/shimmery purple color for the first layer. I'm not sure what the color is called because it was from one of those sample packs that I got as a gift. But it is a really pretty color. Then I used Nina Ultra Pro in Electric Rainbow and Molten Opal. I used all 3 of these colors to help create the spaciness. I didn't use any nail embellishments because I don't have any that resemble stars so I just left it as it is. But I might purchase some later on in the week just to reach the maximum effect.

Here is the final product! Although it does not look as good as Asami's, I had fun trying to attempt it! I'm calling it Space Nails/ Madness!/Angry Paint Splattered Painting because (1) it looks like madness (2)sorta looks like space and (3) reminds me of an angry paint splattered painting.

What do you think?

I think this looks really cool! I love the dark blue base too. I actually recorded a video tutorial for the space look today, but it's not edited or uploaded yet. Thanks so much for the link love! I'm really glad you tried this. I love the look of the holo purple over the blue.

Asami: It's my pleasure to give you link love! After all your my muse! hehe.

Kat: Haha, I like that, "out of this world" :)

Trish: AhhH! A fellow Asami follower too! :) You should definitely try it! It was fun!

Michelle: Aw thanks, for some reason. They don't look spacey to me. I think it's probably because I'm too critical on myself. :(

I love painting my nails. Rarely will you ever see unpainted nails... oh so bad for the nails. But yeah I love both colors. If you want black, try Black Lingerie by Revlon! I wish I could afford Chanel or OPI nail polish... eh... someday. Yay for pretty nails!!!
