As some of you may know, I lost my first nail artist love, @basecoattopcoat to the west coast last December. I thought all hope was lost, until Kelly referred me to her colleague, Misleidys, and she worked this Saturnalia magic on my nails last week. I think I’m gonna be just fine. :)
Misleidys is also at Valley NYC and you can follow her on Instagram here. I knew I wanted Saturn-themed nails after my Jupiter ones, so I went in with a selection of images taken by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft (during its tenure at the ringed planet). When it comes to Saturn, the more abstract the better in my opinion. I especially love the images that are just lines and dots because they look like minimalist art and it’s hard to believe things really look like that!
This week, she noticed SO many Hunts for pineapple print and was ultimately inspired by this bikini! There are more than 200 people on the Hunt for this summer-y printed swimsuit and now, you can create your own mani to match!
1. Paint your nails white and let dry.
2. Use a bright yellow polish to paint several ovals on each nail. If you’d like, paint partial ovals on the sides of your nails to fill in the space.

One last discovery from Different Dimension polishes! They also had a collection entitled: One Small Step - featuring colors named after NASA spacecraft from the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Space Shuttle programs.
