For the galaxy nails, you’ll need:
- Nail File

- Zodiac Nail Art Water Decals
- Picking Clip
- Gold Beads

Step 1. File
File your nails to proportionate and shape them.
Step 2. Apply Base Coat
Once your nails are filed very well, apply base coat on all your nails in both hands.
Step 3. Dry Using UV Lamp
After you’ve applied the base coat on all of your fingernails, let them dry under the UV lamp. Using a 36 Watt UV Lamp makes your fingernails dry faster.
Step 4. Polish
Once your nails are all dried out, start applying the color UV gel onto your nails. Start with the blue one, then mix it up with the lavender and the pink color UV gels.
Step 5. Cutout Your Chosen Decal
Grab your zodiac nail art water decals and cut them out piece by piece. It has all of the zodiac’s signs and symbols so you need to have them cut out per sign and symbol.
Step 6. Apply the zodiac decals on your nails
Carefully apply them onto your nails (pointing, middle, and pinky fingernails) using a picking clip. Adjust the water decals to avoid connecting one sign with the other. Repeat this step on all your nails.
Step 7. Apply The Gems
Once you’re done adhering the water decals, you can now apply the tiny golden beads onto your ring fingernail. You can arrange them in whatever way you want to. Proceed with the diamonds, and then adhere the spare gem onto your thumb fingernail.
Step 8. Clean The Stains
Using the nail polish remover and the cotton pad, remove the stains left on your skin surrounding your nails. (Keep your application light to avoid removing the gems)
Step 9. Apply Top Coat
When your nails already look clean, you may now apply the top coat. This will ensure your nail art will last longer!
Step 10. Apply Cuticle Oil
Last but absolutely not the least, apply the cuticle oil onto your nails to keep your skin moisturized and shining!
