Hearty Nails: Spring Galaxies

I have set a challenge for myself: during this year, I'll do 4 different galaxy nail designs, each inspired by a season.
And so it starts with spring.

It feels slightly strange using all polish for a design when I'm already used to always needing to crack out the acrylic paint. But it's a lot less fuss like this, even with all the sponging.

The inspiration for the exact colours used came from a pen, of all things. This is a pen a friend got me from Japan and actually I love it, it writes very smooth and nice. It's from some ~cute character~ but I don't know it and honestly Japan has like five million ~cute characters~ so I'm pretty sure it's impossible to know all of them anyway.
