Nails of the Day: Starry Night Sky

A few weeks ago, I created a really awesome pink sparkly nail art look that I loved. Pink Sparkle Waterfall, featuring a pink background and a waterfall of pink sparkles, inspired me to try the method with other colors

And that’s how Starry Night Sky was born.

Instead of a pink background, I went with black and a silver waterfall. I used…

In the end, it looked like a starry night sky, with a cluster of stars fading down to the root of my nails.

It was really very beautiful and sparkly, which is hard to capture on camera. Here’s another angle:


To get the change in thickness for the sparkles, I applied multiple layers with only one layer near the root of the nail, and lots of layers toward the tip. (Make sure you use a sparkle nail polish with a clear base.)

I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on this!

Here’s a plus side: both Starry Night Sky and Pink Sparkle Waterfall last way longer than most nail art. Why? Because of the sparkles at the tip. Sparkle nail polish is notoriously resistant to removal, so it keeps the tips from chipping. I’ve had this for days and it still looks good as new.

Would you try this nail art?

  1. That is so pretty. I love it!

  2. That looks amazing. I’m a huge fan of glitter over dark colors. That’s definitely a nail art design I’m going to try!
