1. Apply one coat of dark purple polish, then cure. 

2. Apply that same purple color, a pink or fuchsia color and a taupe color in random swirls. Don't cure just yet!

3. Blow through a straw or pipette to move the colors until you reach your desired effect. Cure. 

4. Apply a lavender or teal color, then cure.

5. Apply a flat matte UV/LED top coat. Cure, cleanse and buff.

6. Apply small dots using a white gel paint and a swirly brush to create stars and a half moon.

7. Shade the moon using black gel paint.

8. Top with a super shiny or flat matte UV/LED top coat, then cure and cleanse.
