Galaxy nails with a kick | what's up nails haul

Galaxy nails by polishedblissfully 

Hi lovelies, welcome back to my blog. Today I have a bit of a double whammy for you. I recently purchased a few items from what's up nails so I'll show you what I picked up from there at the end of the post and I'll also show you a design i did using them now. So let's get into it.

So for this mani I decided on a galaxy design. I love the look of these and you really can't go wrong in which colours you opt for. This time I went with a purple flakie polish by polish my life called June Gleam 2016, it's a purple jelly base with gorgeous flakes of various colours. The grey base is cupcake Polish plant parenthood.

Whats up nails stiletto stencils 

I used the stiletto stencils from what's up nails on the pinky and middle finger, I then painted over the vinyls with the same polish as the rest of the fingers. I did mini galaxies on the circular shapes it left behind after removing them.

As for the galaxies I started with a base of essie grow strong basecoat allowed that to dry. I then mapped out where I wanted the nebulas to be with opi alpine snow and a little piece of torn up sponge. Once it dried I then added the colours on the white so they were opaque over the dark base. I started with Colors by llarowe lotus and with my tweezers and the pieces of sponge I kept lotus to the middle of the nebula and used polish my life plumberry sugar to outline the outside. I used polish my life July Creme to the inside between the purple and lotus. I allowed that to dry and added colours by llarowe Jackie which is a clear based polish with the most beautiful flakes, using the polishes brush I added this on top of lotus. To finish off I added a layer of China glaze fairy dust and added some random dots and stars to bring out the galaxy effect. Then I sealed everything in with seche vite.

I actually love the look of these and you really can do so many variations. Plus those stiletto stencils really made it comes together.

Whats up nails haul 

Now onto the haul. So let's be honest I went a little crazy but I feel like there is something new on there every time I visit. I freaking love it. This time I went for more vinyls because I hardly ever use them except for french tips. So I thought I'm going to get a few different types to branch out. So I settled on 9. Here's a closer look at them.

I got the stiletto ones plus hear vinyls, French tips tape, regular chevron, skinny zigzag tape, scale stencils, quatrefoil stencils and mosaic stencils.

Lastly I also got the uberchicbeauty mermaid life plate. I've had my eye on it for ages so just thought what better time to get it. Finally I also picked up a pure color glamour brush. Well that was a long post ;)
