First I used two coats of 'Starlet' as a background because it's a beautiful purple that reflects other colours! 


I then used white acrylic paint to paint an alien head on my middle nail to make the neon paint pop.  I used a holo topcoat on all the other nails as stars. I also used the white and silver acrylic paints to paint on stars. 

The green neon paint was the perfect alien colour! I used three coats to cover it completely. While that dried I used the Ciate matte topcoat on all my other nails and used the BPS studs as BIG stars! 


I used black paint to paint on the aliens' big eyes and small mouth and top coated that with matte top coat too. As a final touch I used the holo top coat again, I wiped off most of the polish and then swiped it across all of my nails for a little extra sparkle! I also added a little holo around the alien!
