April Nail Art Challenge - Galaxy Nails

Can you believe that I am actually done with one of the themes for the April Challenge BEFORE the day it's supposed to start!? Aren't you proud? ;) 

I can't take all the credit for being early. One of my best friends, who has been incredibly supportive of my nail art, has wanted me to do galaxy nails for as long as I've been doing nail art. Frankly, galaxies intimidate me! While I was going to do these for the challenge, I figured I'd do them early because tomorrow is her Birthday party and I wanted to have a surprise on my nails for her! 

I used A LOT of colors for this mani. Possibly too many? I've never done galaxy nails before and it was much harder than I was expecting. I'm still not entirely sold on these yet - I go back and forth between loving and hating them. But I suppose that can be normal. What do you think? Good or gaff?

Happy Polishing and Happy Birthday, Erin! <3
