Galactic Gypsy

Galactic Gypsy Nail Art

Kelli Marissa did a collaboration with Bundle Monster to create this amazing stamping plate, and this design is inspired by a mani she recently did but with more glitter!

I've never really known what to do with glitter pots until they became so popular recently. I have a ton of them that I've never used, but I think I need to start using them more. :) I received this grey glitter powder from Born Pretty Store in exchange for an honest review. The glitter comes in four different colors - black, grey/gold, dark grey, and silver. I went with the grey/gold color (#284), although it is not quite as gold as it appears on the website (perhaps I was sent the dark grey glitter?). But either way, it is a great glitter. You get 10ml of ultra thin glitter, or micro glitter. The smaller glitter is great for covering an entire nail because it is a little more sparkly, and definitely less chunky than regular sized glitter. The little container may seem small, but it doesn't take a lot of glitter to cover a nail, so this will last a long time. It has a nice screw-on cap, so you don't have to worry about it accidentally opening and spilling everywhere. As I am a fan of black and greys, I think I need to buy the other colors now.

Other Supplies:

I'm trying out the pour on glitter/no top coat look for this design. Overall it looks amazing, but the glitter does rub off during the day. The glitter rubbed off in a glitter gradient kind of look, so I still really like it. To create this look:
  1. Apply a black base color. For the ring finger, leave a little space on the sides of the nail as this will be covered in glitter later.

  2. Use a shimmery grey polish to stamp twinkly stars on all the nails except the ring finger.

  3. Use silver stamping polish to stamp various designs from the plate on each nail except for the ring finger.

  4. Apply another layer of black polish to the ring finger. While wet, pour grey glitter over the nail. Tap off the excess, and use a brush to dust around the nail.
