Whether you’re doing a DIY manicure or booking an appointment at a salon, 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, we head to Instagram for the ultimate nail inspo. Lately, our feed is full of nail artists serving everything from textured looks to cloud-inspired acrylics. Ahead, discover six of our favorites to follow on the ‘gram.

Chaun Legend, @chaunlegend

After giving manicures to a few reality stars who tagged him on Instagram, word spread about Chaun Legend’s work which eventually got him a “like” from Kylie Jenner in 2016 and the rest is history. His intricate designs can take up to eight hours to complete. He’s notorious for his nail art to match a new designer bag, or even a can of a drink of your choice.

Betina Goldstein, @betina_goldstein

Simply put, Betina Goldstein has our heart. Her work is mesmerizing and can’t be defined by just one style. Her feed includes an array of minimalist, rhinestone-embellished and negative space mani looks for a wealth of inspiration.

Eun Kyung Park, @nail_unistella

Meet the queen of playful yet minimalist nail art designs. She’s the owner of Unistella, a nail salon in Seoul and nail jewelry line. SPark broke the Internet back in 2015 when she created the shattered glass nail design and ever since, she’s built up a following including celebrity clients like Bella Hadid and Karlie Kloss.

Tiny, @pressedbytiny

Press-on nails have come a long way. Don’t believe us? Just give Pressed by Tiny a follow. Whether you’re looking for accessorized acrylics, a simple matte mani or a different design on every nail, her press-on sets are drop dead gorgeous. 

Miss Pop@misspopnails

When she’s not backstage at New York Fashion Week or coming up with editorial nail looks, Miss Pop is still probably cultivating bold, creative looks. Follow her Instagram for insider access into the world of beauty editorial and tips on how to recreate statement-making looks (like this cool taxi-inspired nail art) at home.

Hang Nguyen, @thehangedit

You’ve probably seen Los Angeles-based nail artist Hang Nguyen’s work in regrams from the biggest names in beauty. Her nail art is inspired by everything from pride, politics, brand collabs, holidays and more.
