Flashback Friday: Galaxy Nails

Good morning, dear readers, and happy Friday! I hope you have had a wonderful week and are looking forward to fun weekend plans! As for myself, I am eager to get in a nap or two since my husband will be home from work to help out around the house. That lovely advice of "sleep when the baby sleeps" is fantastic when you've had your first baby, but it is definitely not an option when you've got a toddler running havoc on the house at the same time. At least I have plenty of time to prepare payback for the teenage years. Bwahahahaha!

Because the addition of another baby is a big change for me and my family, I've found myself reminiscing about the long, long ago (as my husband and I affectionately refer to as the time before kids), and I decided to carry that over into my blog today in a Flashback Friday post. I started blogging over three and a half years ago, and my very first post was featuring galaxy nail art. Check it out!
I cannot help but laugh when I look at this picture! I had decided to participate in a nail art contest, and the theme was art inspired by your coffee mug. Apparently I decided I needed to either go big or go home in my selection of starting my blog off with creating a galaxy. This was actually my very first attempt at any nail art! I love galaxy nails because they are practically impossible to mess up and they just look fantastic. Here's a funny little tidbit about this picture: I could not figure out how to pose with the mug and hold the camera; my husband had to take my very first blog photo for me. While he may not be involved with my blog, he certainly has been supportive since day 1, and this photo is proof of that! Here is the link to the original post although I left out all information on how-to and what colours I used.

Because I love galaxy nails so much, I ended up featuring them once again on my blog about a year ago. The final nail art look ended up looking a little different than my first attempt, but I love them both for their own reasons. My nails certainly have grown (and broke a few times) during this time, and I am happy to report I did eventually figure out how to hold a camera and photograph my nails at the same time. Haha! The details can be found on my original post here.

Thank you for joining me in today's Flashback Friday post! I really enjoyed going back to where I started, and I may have to do a similar post in the future! I may even need to do galaxy nails again! ;)

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!


  1. Holy crud, your galaxy nails are freaking perfection - both versions! Thankfully my kids are a bit older so I really hope I can sleep when baby sleeps (when baby finally gets here, that is!).

    1. Thank you! Good luck with catching up on your sleep! My boys have an overlap of naptime, so I either get a 20 minute catnap or about an hour and a half to catch up!
