Polish Days – To boldly go

After reading the polish days email for this month and seeing spacey words everywhere my mind jumped to MIB. Men in black 1, 2 and 3 are all films I could sit and watch repeatedly. All I could think about were the worm guys and frank. Now even my OH even agreed if I had attempted the worms they would have looked like sticks; maybe even dodgy trees. Frank was a no go with my amount of skill. Thankfully Susan and Casey helped me out with the idea of Orion’s belt and the black suits.

🙁 My suit nails are a mess. Don’t know what was going on with my painting skills at all yesterday. The suits and ties where all done using bits of tape. Clean up was terrible I  ended up with 3 beaten up cuticles. From afar the suits don’t look too bad.

For my galaxy nails I started with a-englands bridal veil. The scattered holo is perfect to represent millions of stars. Then I added a bit of nail foil which is a blue and green gradient foil. My gosh I love the stuff, it gives the galaxy so much depth.

To make it look like more than just nail foil I sponged on O.P.I. Catch me in your net, an unknown purple Yes Love, and China glaze fairy dust. Then I just dotted on Orion’s belt. In some pictures it showed the stars dead on straight, but on others the middle dot was slightly off centre. I went with slightly off centre.

On my left I dotted Orion’s belt on the wrong way oops. I really enjoyed this challenge. It got me trying new things, and me moving out of my comfort zone (hate wearing plain black with no sparkle or shimmer). As I said previously from afar they aren’t too bad and I can live with that.

Thank you 🙂
