Look up! The Perseid meteor shower is happening (peaks August 11-12) and I couldn’t be more excited.  There’s something magical about catching a glimpse of shooting stars.  Confession: I still make a wish when I see one.  For the Perseids shower, there might be up to 70 an hour.  Hmmm.  That’s a lot of wishes.  But I digress.  For celestial seekers like me who really dig the event, why not get in on the heavenly fun with celestial nail shades?

Astronomy not your thing?  No biggie.  Cosmic nail polish colors can still rock your world.  They’re bold, edgy and eye-catching regardless of what’s happening in the sky.  Point is: Even if we’re not into shooting stars, our cosmic nails can still make us feel like stars.

So, let’s get to it, shall we?  I found cosmic nail polish names with shades to match.  From Revlon’s Nail Art Collection (check out my review, which includes their Moon Candy Collection) to other brands with fun names like, “Satellite,” “Galaxy” and “Full Moon Party,” these colors are . . . wait for it . . . outta this world.  Don’t tell me you didn’t see that one coming *wink*.
