If you want to experiment with nail designs that are a little out of the world, these galaxy nails are right up your alley.

Are you familiar with the galaxy craze that happened on the internet almost a decade ago? Sometime in 2013, everything galaxy-related blew up everywhere – galaxy-print clothes, galaxy-themed rooms, desktop wallpapers, notebooks, tumblers, heck, even galaxy hair. This craze started on the popular blogging platform Tumblr, and it spilled onto Twitter and Facebook, and other small-scale social media platforms.

Perhaps, one of the most popular takes on the iconic starry trend was the galaxy nails. They’re pretty easy to recreate: you just need a black /dark blue nail polish as your base with two to three colors such as pink, blue, and purple to dab on top of the dried black polish base using a sponge. And if you’re extra, you can even paint little stars and dots on your galaxy nails using a thin brush.

Even almost a decade after, galaxy nails still look as beautiful and mysterious as ever.

So, if you’re feeling bored of your current look and you want something a bit dreamier on your nails, take a look at these gorgeous galaxy nails that you can recreate at home. Etsy has a great selection of ready-made press-on nails that you can wear instantly!
