Want some inspiration from the pros? Here are six nail artists you need to follow on Instagram.
From Anne Hathaway to Jennifer Lawrence’s red carpet tips to tackling the editorial names for some of the world’s top publications like W Magazine and Vogue Paris, New York-based Torello’s styles are ones to look out for.
This homegrown talent’s nail artwork has graced the pages of many Canadian publications, not to mention is seen parading up and down the catwalk at World MasterCard Fashion Week as Essie Canada’s lead nail artist.
Having a title like “manicurist to Jennifer Lopez” on your resume is no small feat. This celebrity nail artist has painted the nails of Heidi Klum, Eva Longoria and Lily Aldridge and is even responsible for those adorable designs that you can often see Zooey Deschanel sporting.
With Katy Perry, Jessie J, Rihanna, Nicole Ritchie and Lady Gaga on her roster for celebrity clients, the LA-based nail artist already has a busy schedule. Kimmie Kyees’ feed is constantly filled up with behind-the-scenes snaps from her shoots with her various celeb clientele and gives us a peek into her latest nail art, which is never short on colour or funky designs.
Looking for some seriously unique design inspiration? Hit up Steph Stone on Instagram, showcasing everything from some seriously intricate designs to some simpler, classic styles. Whether she’s painting the tips of red carpet-ready celebs like Kelly Osbourne for this year’s Emmy Awards or doing some impressive Breaking Bad-inspired art, you’ll instantly be motivated to step up your game.
She may be the creator of the luxury nail brand, but Deborah Lippmann’s role doesn’t stop there. Still a working celebrity manicurist, she most recently paired the brand’s new neutral shade 12th Street Rag with Lena Dunham’s ombré tutu dress for the Emmy Awards. While this nail artist is always busy with her own clients, the feed also showcases other designs done with the lacquers, so you can see what else is happening in the world of nails.
