Celestial Nail Art

Happy Fri-Yay! Let’s start this weekend off with some nail inspo, shall we? I haven’t been truly documenting my nail art in a while, and to be honest I missed it quite a bit. Nail art has been one of the things that pushed me into social media and blogging, so I think getting back to my roots in that sense makes sense. 

I don’t really have much else to add here, so let’s just get into straight to the nails:

These nails were inspired by alternative accounts I follow (the theme) as well as Holo Taco coming up with matte top coat (the color scheme and finish). So after seeing all sorts of inspiration out there, I came up with these witchy/celestial inspired nails, with multichrome base color and matte finish. And I really love them.

I started off the mani by applying Holo Taco Long-Lasting Base, to make a foundation that won’t budge for my manicure. Then I continued by adding one coat of Holo Taco Multichrome Polish in Missed-Shift, which is a gorgeous green with a teal to purple shift. After letting that first coat of color dry, I went in with another coat to achieve an opaque finish. I sealed the base color with Glisten & Glow Top Coat, which provides a fast-drying, shiny finish to the mani.

The next day, I created the pattern (I did my base little before going to bed the previous night, as I often do on weekdays since currently, I don’t have time to do an intricate mani in one night), using thin nail art brush, Glisten & Glow Wedding Gown White and some nail polish remover to thin out the polish, making painting easier. My goal was to do a nice celestial pattern that would compliment my metal chic looks, and I thought adding a matte top coat - Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat, to be exact - would give the mani a nice touch.

Otherwise I was quite happy with this, but I came to the conclusion I need to invest in acrylic paints for future nail art attempts. Which I actually did the next day, haha. Remains to be seen whether or not different substance improves my outcomes though. Stay tuned later this Spring to find out.

If you want to try these nails out, but free-hand painting is not for you, you can also either stamp or add stickers to get the same result. I researched a couple of links for you to shop the design, and these are not affiliated in any shape or form as of now. For example, So Nailicous offers absolutely stunning celestial stickers here (click!), and MoYou London has this beautiful collab stamping plate with Kelli Marissa here (click!). Of course, there are many other possible options for designs like this, but the ones linked are some I’ve been eyeing lately, and would absolutely try them out myself.

What do you think about the design here? Let me know in the comments!

That’s all for today, but another post will be up tomorrow, and in that I will be talking a little bit about crafts/DIYs I have been working on lately. Also, tomorrow I will be posting a tiny beauty tutorial on Instagram (@jolagerroos) for those who are into that, and I would appreciate it so much if you checked it out and maybe even left a comment if you like it - I know everyone and their mom wants people to engage with their posts, but if you want someone’s posts to do better than they do now, the best way to help out is engage beyond simply liking the post (comment, save, share). That’s what I try to do whenever a post truly caughts my eye because it’s a free way to help a creator out. But anyway, I’ll see you tomorrow in another blog post and hopefully on Instagram as well!

Have a wonderful day ♥
