It's one small step for manicures—one giant leap for your beauty routine. Earlier this week, we posted a picture to our Instagram of the celestial nails worn by one of our editors, and since our followers wanted to know more about the look, we put together a step-by-step guide on how to recreate it!

Click "See the Photos" now to get the complete breakdown, and be sure to follow us on Instagram at @InStyleMagazine for even more fashion and beauty inspiration.
