In a world full of fire nail looks, sometimes it’s hard to come up with a new design that feels like an authentic representation of your personality or creativity. When this happens, you can, of course, take to Pinterest to search up some nail art inspo, but lately, we can’t get enough of the work from nail artists on Instagram. Lately, our feed is full of celebrity manicurists, minimalist nail artists and even nail salons ‘gramming the best of the best nail looks.
