After I bought Beam Me Up Hottie, I wanted to do a space theme for my nails and I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do. I think I could have improved this and made it look even more galactic. I might re-visit this space theme later when I think of something a little more uniform.
For this manicure, I painted my nails with Milani – Midnight Satin which is a dark navy jelly nail polish. I didn’t want to use black so I opted for the next best thing. Since it has a jelly finish, I wanted to try doing a jelly sandwich using Sinful Colors Diamond Lust – Shine on Me for my index finger, although you probably can’t tell from the photo. I didn’t like how it came out, so I applied a layer of Sinful Colors Diamond Lust – Scene Stealer overtop to make the jelly sandwich look less ‘dirty.’ I liked that combination a little more, it made my nail look more like a galaxy or a cluster of stars. It was my first time trying to do a jelly sandwich. I’ll try it again using a lighter jelly polish, I think it would look cuter that way.
Beam Me Up Hottie was a little difficult to use. You definitely have to fish for the glitters to come out and even then sometimes it won’t adhere to my nail. I had to let the clear nail polish drain a little bit before applying it to my nail or else it would just be a big glop of clear nail polish and one glitter. Although it’s a little hard to use, I think the glitters look pretty cool. I don’t know if it was worth me hunting it down, but for $4.50 I really can’t complain. You can really see the holographic shine of this polish from the photo.
