#52weeknailchallenge: stars

Finally a prompt that I actually had a plan for!! I've had the Glisten & Glow Dark and Delishious collection on my table for ages and I've been wanting to use it, but never had the ideal prompt. Until now. When I originally shared the polishes with our Secret Santa group, one of the ladies asked if it was a galaxy in a bottle (or at least something to that effect). So that for me meant stars.

I started with two coats of G&G cold hands. warm heart on my thumb, index finger and pinky. On my middle and ring finger I have one coat of Ulta3 black satin.
For the stars I used starry night vinyls from Becauseishop. I laid one on my miracle mat and painted a coat of OPI int'l crime caper over it. Removing the vinyl immediately, I then placed it again and used a scraper to flatten it and get rid of the excess polish. I then painted a coat of China Glaze let your twilight sparkle over it, removing the vinyl immediately.
Once it was dry I randomly added the stars to my nails, top coated and done.
What do you think? I was concerned when I bought this collection that I would have trouble capturing the colour shift. Since they all black based polishes, but so far I haven't had any trouble.

Thanks for reading!
