As a brand that covers everything from beauty and fashion to food, we often see trends span from one category to the other. Take activated charcoal, for instance, which began in face masks and shampoos and made its way into ice cream and lemonade. The latest trend to take over all of our editors' social feeds? Galaxy designs, which have been popping up on everything from Easter eggs to doughnuts—and, most recently, it has officially entered the beauty world. That’s right—the latest manicure craze is nails adorned with constellations, ranging in color from purple to blue to gray. Some designs even feature the moon or a crescent moon as well, and most have a sparkly element to resemble the starry night sky. This isn’t just a national trend, either—it’s growing in popularity worldwide.
The designs are fairly intricate, with tiny detailed constellations, which makes the trend all the more impressive. See below for all of the crazy masterpieces, and then give our marble mani a try at home.
"Space may be the final frontier, but it's made in a Hollywood basement." Berating you guys with one final photo of my constellation nails, ft. my favourite lyric from Californication before I take 'em off and paint something new. ✌🏻️🌌 #nailart #notd #handpainted #constellationnails #galaxynails #sharpienails #thebigdipper #orion #constellations
I wanted to use most of the items from my @bundlemonster Festival Box so that includes the stamping plates too! As a true country girl I love watching the stars and plate S306 caught my eye in an instant ✨🌟⭐️ I made a stripey gradient with lots of drugstore cheapies as my background and stamped the constellations with Essence Stampy White. I added some more dots to fill it up. Originally I wanted to stamp the trees from the same plate as well but my nails are just too small and I'd have covered everything with them.. So I just freehanded some similar trees with black acrylic paint. Finished it with a sparkly holo topper! #bundlemonster #prsample #nailart #nailstamping #stamping #essence #catrice
