We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been collecting images of nebulas. There’s something about these colorful interstellar clouds that fascinate me. My favorite has always been the Eagle Nebula, which is a young open cluster of stars in the constellation Serpens. I have an image of it on both my business card and website. (Nerd much?)

Just one quick search on Tumblr will return results for an array of awesome intergalactic manicures. Have any of you tried it? Click here for a super easy-to-follow DIY if you haven’t. And while you’re at it, pair your new digits with one (or all) of these cosmically inclined pieces:
I know that these items are fairly pricey (except for the bodycon dress—$50 is a steal!) and only Lady Gaga would actually wear everything together, but one can always dream, right?
If you’re not a nail art pro (yet!) but want to experiment with metallic nail polish, we love the Color Club Magnetic Nail Polish.
