Ready to run with the stars? With these celestial nail trends, the furthest reaches of space can be as close as your fingertips. Ahead is a collection of sky dwellers to help you nail down your next stellar shellac.

One look through this curated collection is enough to inspire a supernova of ideas. After you’ve settled on a few you like, be sure to take the images with you so you and your technician can make the design your own.

Northern lights

This natural phenomenon is a marvel of galactic proportions. Now, instead of having to travel to the tiptop of the planet, you can celebrate the swirl right where you are. The more cool colors you can work in, the more captivating your nails will be. At minimum, a dark blue, pop of purple glitter polish, and a blot of green will help achieve this dreamy display.

Unlike the moon, celestial nails are more than a passing phase. But capturing la luna in her many forms is stylish homage to this centering sky body. Matte black polish and white textured crescents make an irresistible pair so pretty you may just catch yourself fighting the urge to howl.

Starlight, star bright

Stargazers no longer have to look up to appreciate these magnetic sky fires. There are more ways to showcase your star nail art than there are, well, stars in the sky. In this galactic voyage, a shiny soft pink gloss adorned with five-pointed foils is a true gold star of this skyward trend.
