Advent Calendar Day 8 – Starry Night

My first two ideas for today’s challenge were to either go all-out and actually attempt to paint the Van Gogh on my nails (which probably would have been a huge fail), or to go super simple and just use the polish I have that is actually called “Starry Night” (Sonia Kashuk).  These are somewhere in the middle.  Since I’ve done galaxy nails before, I decided to do something a little bit different with these: the stars are actual constellations.  Totally nerdy, but I love them!

constellations

From thumb to pinky the constellations are Hercules, Gemini, Draco, Canis Minor & Corvus (two small ones), and Cassiopeia.

The polishes I used are China Glaze Up All Night, First Mate, and Manhunt, and OPI Alpine Snow.

And… my never-before-seen-on-this-blog right hand!  Usually I do something simple on it, but this time I actually did the same design, so I thought I’d show you.

constellations

From pinky to thumb: Lyra, Ursa Minor (aka the little dipper), Virgo, Aquarius, and Leo.

I didn’t realize how difficult/awkward it would be to take a picture of my right hand!  But I’m pretty happy with how they turned out.
