Did I originally promise to complete this challenge in a timely fashion? Because, honestly? It's been really difficult! September has been a crazy month so far. I had very little ambition to paint my nails on Sunday night, let alone tackle the dreaded water marble of Day 20. So... I just decided to wear this one for a 2nd day. Then, I completely forgot about posting it until I was mid-manicure last night, and that just was nawt going to happen.

So anyway...

I've never done a galaxy manicure before, but I've used the sponging technique before on some of my gradient manis. I started with a base of navy blue, then sponged on white, light blue, light green, and purple to create the galaxy effect. I did get a little carried away with the lighter colors, so I had to add in some navy blue and black for balance. I topped that with a coat of clear to blend my galaxies together, then added a coat of Pirouette My Whistle for a sparkly star effect.

I really didn't want to take this mani off last night. However, I know that the sooner I can get over the hurdle that is the WATER MARBLE... the oh so very much better, Better, BETTER!
