Magical Music Manis 1: Counting Stars ~ One Republic


Welcome to the third challenge I do, based on music. It’s not a secret that I love music, and that it really motivates me to try and make songs into nail art. 


The first song is Counting Stars. I knew I wanted to make a galaxy mani, and I also knew that I was going to use a specific topper – I’ll get back to that.

I started with a purple/blue gradient. I decided to use polishes from the Helmer: Oldies but goodies. I used Orly “Velvet Rope” which is deep purple with silver shimmer and Maybelline Color Show “Blue Freeze” which is a deep blue shimmer. I used OPI’s Glitter Off around my cuticles in order to make the clean up easier. That did not work today, I don’t know if I applied a layer that was too thin or because I left it on for too long, but it was a nightmare to get off again :/

While I talk I might as well show you the final mani:


I dapped some pink glitter on the gradient. I used Kiko’s #438 Fascinating Burgundy, and I carefully sponged on a little bit here and there.


When that was dry I applied a layer of the topper I mentioned in the beginning of my post: Chaos & Crocodiles’ “Lollipops and Baby Hippos”. It’s a clear base with pink, lilac and baby blue multi shaped, multisized glitter and it’s perfect for this purpose!


Here are the four polishes I used:
