I have been doing tons of research on nail artist’s, trends and salons in the area for a little project I am working on, and I have been keeping an eye on a few particular Instagrammers. Instagram keeps me up to date with every celebrity, gives me style ideas, and most importantly introduces me to a world of amazing nail artists. In this post I want to share with you 10 of my favorite nail artists you MUST follow on Instagram. These ladies give me unique nail art ideas, bring me up to speed with the newest nail products and remind me of how beautifully intricate nail art can be.
With over 93,000 followers, Hannah Lee is no novice. She is all about simplicity with a twist. Hannah uses mainstream and high end polishes that you have probably seen in your local salon. I personally go to her for nail inspiration all the time, because her designs are my style.
Sarah of Chalkboard Nails is my nail soul sista! I have never seen a design of her’s that I did not like, or would not try on my own nails. Sarah uses mainstream polishes on natural nails and her designs are unique. And I especially love when she does nail art based off of an image or object. It really shows you how much of an artist she truly is.
I love that Milly is an emerging nail artist,and works with a ton of indie nail polish brands. But, this girl kills the free hand nail art. You won’t see her using any stamps, her attention to detail and her quirky designs always make you check out her feed.
This NYC based nail artist is always bringing something new to the table. Whether it is a perfect plain mani, super-detailed, or decals she delivers perfect work. I especially love that she still uses nail wraps. I have been loving nail wraps for years now and they started to dwindle away, but I love how she incorporates them into some of here manicures.
Brie has the best swatches, and some really fun designs. The reason why I love her Instagram is that her personality shines through her nail art. I like that she introduces me to new organic products and nail polishes that I am not familiar with. And can we just admire how perfect her nail beds are !?!
Nails that embody high fashion, well.. thats Chelsea. Her designs are modern, sleek and edgy. Which makes sense as to why she is one the hottest nail artists on the west coast. No matter what the occasion, or what you are wearing if you check out Chelsea’s page you can find a design to match your swag.
Mei is a Japanese nail artist who has made a name for her self in the big apple. Every nail design that Mei does is intricate and fun. Some of her designs are a little over the top for me, but I am jealous that I don’t have the guts to try some of her cool designs. But, if you are looking for that nail artist who can do crazy 3D nails to natural and girly.. Mei is your go to.
Bana has the best tutorials. I am nail obsessed and I try to teach my self new techniques all the time, and Bana’s instagram keeps me in the know. She also has the most beautifully shaped natural nails, and kills at free hand nail art.
Out of all of the nail artists I follow, Tamara by far has the most content on her page. She posts a new manicure or tutorial EVERY SINGLE DAY! So, there are literally thousands of manicures to look through and you will never get bored of her designs.
Britney is the queen of the over the top nail, and she is killing the nail scene in Hollywood. If you are looking for nails that make a statement, with attention to details then check out Britney’s Instagram account. She mainly does acrylics and gels, but the way this girl can pack a ton of detail on one finger nail is insane!
Thanks for checking out my blog!
Love you mean it!
