Holographic formulas and finishes are the hottest trend right now in beauty products, and while some of them are more delicate — bringing the dainty shimmer of a fairy to mind — others are a bit more aggressive in their iridescence.

We're pretty confident that we'll be seeing a lot more of these intergalactic beings incorporated into beauty this year, so to ensure you're ahead of the trend, we rounded up some alien-inspired nail art to get you inspired. So cue up Katy Perry's "E.T." and keep reading: we've got plenty of out-of-this-world designs to choose from.
