I was paired up with the amazing ChiChi from "I'm Just Me...ChiChi ":) After spending some time "studying" in her blog (could you feel me stalking you, ChiChi!?), I decided to copycat her "Galaxy Nails"!

First, I'll show you the final result, then I have a picture tutorial of how I did them at the end (if you're even interested ;)
I used a tiny smidge of Hard Candy "Beetle", just in the center and you can see the duochrome flashing here:
And here is "Smoke & Ashes" (the base) by itself! The perfect 'night sky' sort of color if I do say so myself:
And here are pictures of the steps I did to do this:
Base: China Glaze "Smoke & Ashes"
Step 1: Wet N Wild "French White"
Step 2: China Glaze "Lemon Fizz"
Step 3: Sinful Colors "Starfish"
Step 4: Wet N Wild "Blue Moon"
Step 5: Hard Candy "Beetle"
Step 6: Wet N Wild "French White" for dots
I then used China Glaze "Fairy Dust" over the entire nail to finish it.
What do you think of these? I should have left more of the base showing on the sides, but other than that I am happy with my Copy Cat mani. Chi Chi, do you like it?!
