NOTD - Sci Fi Alien Nails!

Greetings my fellow earthlings, hope you are all well!



So its that time of the month again darlings...Polish Days! When I found out what this months theme was, “To Boldly Go...” my inner sci fi geek squealed in delight as I absolutely LOVE all things Sci Fi! Star Wars is up there as one of my all time favourite films (the classics obvs, not the recent CGI filled disappointments) so I was excited to get my thinking cap on & decide which way to boldly go for my Sci-Fi manicure. An obvious option was of course the much loved Galaxy nails but for some reason they scare the bejesus out of me! I will attempt them one day but for today I went down another route & did me some holographic Sci Fi Alien nails instead!




What do you think? This design really made me smile & my inner sci fi geek was definitely satisfied! :D




To start off I applied two coats of Eyeko Cosmic Polish which was pretty much perfect for my 'outer space' base! Galaxy effect without the effort ;) By the way, who else really misses the old Eyeko products? They may not have been everyone's cup o' tea but I personally loved the cute range with its anime-esque style which has sadly been discontinued *sad face* Cosmic Polish is a fab black with multicolored holographic glitters giving the effect of hundreds of stars suspended in deep dark sky...




Next for my aliens I grabbed another suitably sci fi like polish, the most awesome GOSH Holographic. There are now quite a few holographic polishes out there but this was one of the first I got & its still a firm favourite of mine. Using a nail art brush I free-handed the oval like alien head before filling in with two coats of the GOSH Holographic.




To complete the design I added two bright green oval rhinestones for my alien eyes & finished with two coats of topcoat to seal. Done!



Thanks for reading, hope you liked the Sci Fi manicure lovelies! Can't wait to see everyone's sci fi nails!  be sure to check them out! Until next time....live long & prosper!



Lotsa love to ya!

  5. Love this, so orignal. Such a cleaver use for the oval rhinestones. I'm totally going to have to borrow this look. Only wish they made glow-n-the-dark halo polish.
