Happy Sunday everyone! Are you doing anything special for Memorial Day? Sadly, I'll be working. To cheer myself up, I decided to do some cosmic inspired nails. 

You may or may not know this, but I'm really into astronomy and cosmology. I spend a lot of time thinking, reading and learning about the universe. It's a really beautiful, fascinating place. In my opinion, some of the most beautiful celestial objects are supernova remnants and planetary nebulae. If you've never looked at a composite image of nebula, you're really missing out. For this mani, I took inspiration from Kepler's Supernova.

I used two coats of Orly Lunar Eclipse then layered one coat each of Sinful Colors Hottie and Nubar 2010.

Of course I had to top it off with a coat of Essie Matte About You. I'm seriously obsessed with mattifying glitters right now, lol.


Please excuse my dry hands/fingers/cuticles, I worked today so I was washing them constantly! Plus, I'm out of Lemony Flutter, ugh. Expect a FOTD soon!


  1. Amazing! I must say I love the matting as well.

  2. I'm not sure if I like it better with or without the matte top coat but both of them look gorgeous <3

  3. This looks incredible! I love all the layering manis you do!
