I wanted to use a few colours I hadn't tried before. The Sephora for O.P.I. range I actually picked up as a mutlipack in America. I don't usually go for the pearlescent varnishes, but they work really well with this effect mixed with other more solid colours.
After a black base had dried, I read that the trick is to use the next darkest colour first. In my case it was the O.P.I purple. Dab the nail to create the base of your galaxy area. Next go lighter and lighter and dab a smaller and smaller area within the original, which all helps create a depth to the galaxy effect.
After this if you have a light glitter you can sometimes use that all over. In my case the Rimmel glitter varnish was a pretty solid colour so I just splodged it randomly. To add my star effect I used my new favourite toy.. The nail pen.
