Here is my version of the galactic mani. I think I viewed about six YouTube videos before I decided on my method. I used cosmetic sponges over deep midnight blue. I also dotted a few white points for stars. Other colors I lightly dabbed on for the cosmic belts were, pink, lavender, orange and pale blue. Top coated with sheer micro glitter. It took about 40 minutes for both hands. Have you tried this?
