Ann VanSpronsen demonstrates how to do Galaxy nail art.


Paint nail with one coat of CND Shellac in Midnight Swim and cure.


Paint nail in random order and position with CND Shellac Hotski to Tchotchke. Overlap with CND Shellac Tutti Frutti in opposite directions, and cure.


Using CND additive in Haute Pink, rub color close to where the two previous colors overlap. This will create the center of the galaxy.


Add CND Shellac Silver Chrome over half the pink additive section. Add a two or three dots of CND Shellac Cream Puff with a dotting tool for stars. Seal entire nail with a top coat and cure.
