#MTV Challenge: 9. Rainbow & Galaxies

Are you one of those people that understands meme's but when someone asks you what a meme is, you can not explain it no matter how hard you try? Can you spend hours of your day on a site like 9GAG or Reddit and frankly not give a damn that those hours are gone...FOREVER? If I say “I used to have a life until I took an arrow to the knee”, would you respond with “Cool story bro”? Then this mani is for you!

9. Rainbow and Galaxies

So I am finally on the second last mani for the #MTVnailChallenge and when I saw this theme I almost immediately knew what I wanted do! I've been wanting to do a similar mani to this for quite a while now so this theme just helped me to finally put my head to it and take it on! I give you...Nyan Cat!

Because there are so many different steps to this mani I'm not going to lay them out step by step like I usually do but I will list the different polishes and tools that I used in the order that I did in this mani.



  • China Glaze Man Hunt
  • China Glaze Grape Pop
  • China Glaze Spontaneous
  • Tip Top Nail Chic Cha Cha Cha
  • Essence Twins Reloaded Edward
  • Sinful Colors Snow Me White
  •  WOW Nail Polish #393
  • Small torn-off pieces of a make-up sponge

Nyan Cat:
  • Essence Nude Glam Cafe Ole
  • Avon Pastel Pink
  • China Glaze Recycle
  • OPI If You Moust You Moust
  • Tip Top Nail Chic Grape To Meet You
  • Sinful Colors Snow Me White
  • WOW Nail Polish #393
  • Thin nail art brush
  • Thin cut down striping brush

I used the decal-method to make Nyan Cat on a plastic baggie before hand.


  • Tip Top Nail Chic We Have An Agreen Mint
  • Tip Top Nail Chic Jazz Berryblue
  • Tip Top Nail Chic Solar Flare
  • Tip Top Nail Chic Sun Kissed
  • Nubar Competition Red
  • Thin nail art brush

I am genuinely happy with how this came out and was very proud of myself! It was hard work but the end result to me, made it worth it. Is it perfect? No! But I aint even mad! True story bro! Now if you're looking for me, I'm off to go laugh at some pointless cat videos on Youtube.

If you would like me to swatch any of the colours you saw in today’s post, please let me know via email or drop me a comment below. More than willing to oblige!

Lots of mad love...


  1. This is so pretty and so clever. I wanted to do something similar but using a Prism... Didnt work lol but LOVE this

    1. Ah, a prism would've been awesome! Almost like a whole "Dark side of the moon" vibe! But thank you sweety! :D

  2. What? WHAT! WHAAAAT?!?! This is insane. Mind = blown.
    AMAZING job T. I love it!
