Weekend Diversion: Space & Science Nail Art (Synopsis)

“Once I knew only darkness and stillness… my life was without past or future… but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living.” -Helen Keller

Our tiny, little fingers make all the difference in the world, enabling us the use and manipulation of advanced tools, among many other things. Why shouldn't we use them for luck, as Laura Marling would sing us in her song,

Cross Your Fingers,

or for our own artistic enjoyment wherever we go?

There are some amazing and fantastic incarnations of this, but what some people are doing with it truly blows me away! And yes, I totally have a new fingernail space art hero after this.
