Beauty and the Beast Inspired Rose Nails

Snow White Inspired Nail Art Craft

by Holly Homer

What you'll need

  • Navy Blue Nail Polish
  • White Nail Polish
  • Yellow Nail Polish
  • Rose Pink Nail Polish
  • Makeup Sponge

How to make it

Step 1

1. Start with a Navy Blue Nail.

Step 2

2. Now, take a regular makeup sponge. You can get these at a drugstore in a package of about ten for under three dollars, and they will last forever, but if you don't have any handy, then just use a paper towel.

Step 3

3. Rip tiny pieces off the sponge. Don't cut them for this design, because we want the rough edges when we sponge on the other colors.

Step 4

4. Use tweezers or nail clippers to pick up the sponge. 

Step 5

5. Dab the spong in white nail polish. (Be careful not to get too much.)

Step 6

6. Now, carefully sponge in a diagonal down the middle of your nails.

Step 7

7. When you're finished, it will look like this. It doesn't need to be anywhere near perfect. 

Step 8

8. Dab a tiny bit of yellow on top of the white. Make sure to leave some of the white uncovered.

Step 9

9. Dab the rosy pink color near the yellow spots.

Step 10

10. Use the sponge to dab a tiny amount of blue throughout the nebula.

Step 11

11. Add a glittery topcoat to act as stars all around the galaxy.

Step 12

12. Finish with a shiny top coat.

Galaxy Nails done!

13. Now, you have fantastic Star Wars inspired Galaxy Nails!
