DIY: How to make a galaxy nail polish ring

I love to make jewellery and when I seen nail polish rings on etsy, I decided to make my own. I thought it will be fun to make a Galaxy inspired ring. Here is what you will need:

1.A flat clear gemstone ( I couldn't find a clear one, so I used a pink/peachy colour)
2.A ring base (available on ebay)
3.Nail polish of your choice: I used Essence Blue Addicted and Edward, DL Mermaids Dream
4.Superglue.
 

Simply paint the back of the gemstone with nail polish starting with the colour you want to see first, add the next colour and finally the last colour that will be the background. Leave the nail polish to dry for a couple of hours. Using superglue attach  the ring base to the gemstone and you are done :)
I love the Galaxy effect :)
