In the spirit of May the Fourth, I wanted to do a quick Star Wars
loosely ‘inspired’ nail look (though you could really wear this on any other day). This is my default manicure when I simply want to paint my nails and add a bit of fun to it.
This was the first manicure I did. I was looking for colors that look like space/galaxies and I came across the Milani 3D holographic nail polish. I absolutely LOVE Milani 3D holographic polishes, I don’t know why it wasn’t more popular when the collection came out, nevertheless, I thought it would be suitable for a space inspired look. I used 4 coats of this polish to get it to an opacity I liked, I think next time I will use a base color. Cyberspace did require a little more work, but I still love the application and the overall look. It looks amazing. I added the Hard Candy Black Tie Optional polish as my accent nail because the black and white reminded me of Darth Vader and also of stars in the sky.
I also used a Maybelline shredded nail polish, but for some reason it didn’t shred? Maybe I just used it wrong but it applied normally for me. Someone tell me what I did incorrectly!
Then I figured that Cyberspace was too pale of a blue, and switched to Sinful Colors Ardoise (Night Magic) for a sinister Darth Vader/Storm Troopers manicure. The application of Ardoise was lovely. It is a very dark grey that looks black, so it’s perfect if you want something that looks less harsh than black polish does. I used two coats for full opacity and the formula was not streaky at all. For a while I kept these polishes tucked away, and after I started using them again, I’m falling in love with Sinful Colors nail polish all over again.
I also really like Hard Candy Black Tie Optional. It’s perfect to spice up any nail polish color and it’s just really fun to use. It is exactly what I wanted in Sephora X Chaotic at a fraction of the cost (Hard Candy Retails $4 at Wal-Mart). Every time I go into Sephora this nail polish is sold out, so if you want something similar try Hard Candy Black Tie Optional. The black and white glitters are very similar.
What I Used
Dark Grey – Sinful Colors Ardoise (Night Magic), Maybelline Color Show (Shredded) Silver Stunner
Blue – Milani 3D Holographic Cyberspace
Accent– Hard Candy Black Tie Optional
Think I’m going to lay off the nail polish posts for a while! :)
May the Fourth be with you,
