Photography: Chris Peun finds the cosmos hidden inside cosmetics

British photographer Chris Peun spends the majority of his time shooting still life images for fashion and cosmetics brands, using his instinctive eye for colour and composition to create standout images from otherwise fairly ordinary products. These are lovely in their own right but we were particularly drawn to these abstract compositions resembling nebulae that Chris has undertaken for the sheer hell of it. We think, THINK that they’re made from close-up photographs of nail polish (they’ve got that iridescent shimmer to them) that’s been lit from behind, but however they’re made they’re beautiful things to look at. Cosmic mani-pedi anyone?
