Galactic Snake Skin: Recycled Manicure!

Hello Lovelies! I have kind of been obsessed with galaxy nails lately so I decided to do them for a concert I was going to this weekend. Check out how my most recent endeavor with them turned out.

I used O.P.I 'Lincoln Park After Dark' for the base and tons of different colors for the sponging. I also added glow in the dark Nebulas using a dotting tool and China Glazes 'Ghoulish Glow'. The dots glowed beautifully in the dark after being "charged" with a bright light for a few seconds, but the glowing didn't last long. I was ok with it not lasting that long though because I knew it was there and that worked for me hahaha. Tip: If you are going to do Glow in the dark dots you  might want to "double dot" just to make sure you get a good glow effect.

Using 'Joy' and 'Cherish' both from China Glaze and Bundle Monster plate BM-215 I stamped on a random snake skin pattern. 

Up Close
I am kind of digging it with the frosty sea foam green and pretty purple. Less "Galactic" but still pretty cool. What do you guys think? I love recycling the Sponge Manicures, you can make them completely different!
