Press Sample buttonHi all! Earlier today I showed you the Love Your Planet collection from Bad Bitch Polish. Right now I’m going to show you galaxy print inspired nail art that I created with all Bad Bitch Polish nail polishes: Hera, Poseidon, Amethyst Andromeda, Dripping Icicles, and Tonic.

I was inspired by this print I found at fabric.com. I loved how it’s deep and mysterious and spacey wacey. LOL! P.S. If you ever need inspiration for nail art, check out fabric prints!

Formula had a good thickness. I could have done 2 coats but I wanted the depth of 3 coats. This is 3 coats plus top coat.

Amethyst Andromeda is a grape purple holographic with a golden sheen.

I had good opacity on the 1st coat. Formula was a little thin but not bad overall (no flooding). It is insanely shiny without top coat. This is 2 coats and no top coat. 

I’m so excited that Bad Bitch Polish is creating birthstone duos – to tell the truth I can’t wait until my birthstone month (September!). This duo launches TODAY, January 31. They will be $9.50 each or $18 for the duo at Bad Bitch Polish.
