Star Wars Space Age Nails

2 min read

The new Star Wars movie is out this week (in case you hadn’t heard…), and the Star Wars tat memorabilia is everywhere. I was browsing Instagram the other day, and saw LOADS of amazing Star Wars nail art posts, like this one, below.

For all my Star Wars lovers! #nailsbykimmie #utahcounty #handpaintednailart #starwars #starwarsnails

I love this one – simple, but actually not the simple to do, I suspect. So, you have a few options here. If you want to Star Wars up your nails, then I’d suggest making an appointment with a manicurist who is great at nail art, having a go yourself and dealing with the results, or sticking on some false nails or nail wraps, in a space age style, as an homage to the new movie.

Elegant Touch’s stick on nails are actually a lot better than you might think, and relaly not harmful to the nail. They have a few space age styles – well, okay, it’s more the names with these two that are space age – the pink is Constellation, and the deep burgundy is Galactica.

Both are great shiny, metallic, space age styles, and if you don’t like them, you don;t need to keep them on for that long. Also, when yoElegant Touch Space Age nails in Supernovau do take them off you won’t feel as guilty as you would when that beautiful nail art started to chip and you had to remove it!

They also have a fab Supernova style, all space style swirls, which I love.

Maybe that’s a little bit more out there for any space age nail style you were looking for?

Or perhaps these Thumbs Up Nail Wraps are more your thing? Nacre, Awe and Mars are three swirly, cosmic, space age designs that I love. I think my favourite has to be the bonkers Nacre, just for the crazy colour pattern.

These nail wraps are so easy to use, and again, they come off easily, so once the Star Wars hype wears off metaphorically, it can also peel off literally.


These nail wraps are £6.99 a set, and available from
