Hands up: who’s guilty of losing literally hours browsing Instagram for manicure inspiration?
We’ve seen some things on nails that quite frankly warrant a space in the Louvre, from incredibly intricate watercolour-style designs to bejewelled styles that rival the Hope Diamond when it comes to the bling factor.
Whether you like your nails chic and short or super-long and glamorous, there’s some mani-spo out there for you.
Instagram is a veritable hub of nail-spo, thanks to the surgical dexterity of A List’s chosen manicurists.
Here are the nail artists to follow when you want to switch up your mani…
1. Tom Bachik
If we told you that Jennifer Lopez’s manicurist of choice is really into skateboarding and was convinced to switch to nails by his wife, would you believe us? It’s all true, and the man in question is Tom Bachik. His styles range from the subtle to the bold, and he’s an A List fave with quite the client base – other than J.Lo, Karlie Kloss & Rachel McAdams are regulars.
2. WAH Nails
WAH Nails gave nail art a new lease of life. Their quirky designs (which include everything from creepy eyes to a chic Tiffany’s bow) defy the expectations of what you could possibly fit on one nail, and are bold and beautiful.
3. Madeline Poole
Madeline’s always backstage, whether it’s at Stella McCartney or DKNY, creating subtle, elegant styles. An American girl with a flair for nuanced nails, Madeline’s styles are perfect for working gals who like to keep things clean and simple.
4. Naomi Yasuda
Naomi’s painted the talons of Gigi Hadid & Kendall Jenner, and basically has a monopoly on quirky, stripy designs. Her use of metallic accents, pastel shades and bold splashes of colour make all her designs fun, fresh and youthful.
5. Sabrina Gaylem
Sabrina’s got some sweet style. From graphic, pop-art style designs to beautiful, everyday looks, her feed’s got something for every taste. She’s a seasoned pro, and shares her behind the scenes snaps, too.
