Ever since I saw this on a friend’s facebook, I have wanted to try it.  Basically, take a dark color (I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Purple Rain) as the base, and use a makeup sponge to dab on first a layer of light teal polish (Wet n Wild Megalast in I Need a Refresh-Mint) then a layer of reddish-orange-pink (Wet n Wild Megalast in Heatwave) and top it all of with a cosmic glitter (Wet n Wild  Wild Shine in Kaleidoscope turned out to be perfect).

I didn’t do this on every nail because I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out (plus I was really getting into Downton Abbey and was paying it more attention than my nails).  I think next time I’ll go for it and do every nail in the galaxy effect.
