Summer Nail Challenge: Dog Days of Summer

I'd heard the expression 'dog days' before but never actually knew what it meant. A quick look about online and I discovered that dog days are (supposed) to be the hottest days of the summer.

How to translate that in to nail art, well the term dog days comes from the ancient belief that Sirius or the Dog Star controlled the hot weather.

Want to find the dog constellation? So easy as Sirius is the brightest star in the sky.

The middle finger has the constellation 'Canis Major' and the largest star is the dog star. The index finger is the same constellation but draws in. And finally the pinky has the Egyptian Sirius, I was thinking about doing that guy from Harry Potter but that would look out of place.
