Cinco De Mayo Galaxy Mani Without All The Work?!?!

Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! No I am not of mexican descent, but today is the perfect excuse for anyone to over induldge in less than healthy mexican food. Come to think of it, is any kind of mexican food healthy? Probably not, which is why is taste so good! I've got my mind set on some rolled tacos.
For those of you who don't know, Cinco De Mayo celebrates the mexican victory over the French army that took place in Puebla; a town in Mexico. The funny thing is, Cinco De Mayo isn't really celebrated/acknowledged in Mexico (except for the town of Puebla). From the information I have gathered, it's more celebrated here in the United States by Mexican Americans, mostly in border towns. Although I do not celebrate Cinco De Mayo, I do live in a border town so the festivities are all around me. Anyways, there' a little bit of history for you! On to the main event; today's manicure. 

Today's manicure has nothing to do with Cinco De Mayo, but it sure is beautiful! A couple of days ago I bought China Glaze 'Shooting Stars' and I have not been able to put it down! I love it so much! Today's manicure is ChG 'Shooting Stars' over two coats of ChG 'Let's Groove'. It kinda of reminds me of a galaxy-type manicure, only without all the work. This 'Shooting Stars' polish is so multi-dimensional, layered over a dark polish it totally could be a galaxy manicure!

I am absolutely IN LOVE with this combination! I'm not sure if 'Shooting Stars' is readily available or not. I found mine at a small beauty store near my house that has a ton of older OPI, China Glaze and Essie collections. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy this manicure!
