Purple Galaxy & OPI Coca Cola Collection III

Hey guys. Here is the third polish from the OPI Coca Cola Collection: A Grape Affair.

This polish is a dark purple creme polish with blue undertones. It applies easily and I needed two medium thick coats for full opacity (as you can see in the picture below with no top coat). The drying time was okay.

I always admire all the talented ladies, that create these realistic looking galaxy manicures and that is why I usually hesitated to try it myself. But as you can see, I tried it now.
For this look I used only polishes from the OPI Coca Cola Collection. First I sponged on random shapes with the lightest shade “You’re so Vain-illa” and then dapped on “Get Cherried Away” and “Sorry I’m Fizzy Today” around it. Lastly I just added some white dots and drew on some stars.

I should have stopped there, but I have to admit that I went a little over board after that by adding a glitter top coat from P2. I mattified everything with P2Red, I love you!” matte top coat.

I am not really satisfied with how it turned out, but it is not all bad for my first try either. What do you think? Any advice for my next try?
