From Details to Rhinestones: Top Instagram Influencers to Follow for Some Major Nail Art Inspiration

There is nothing that can keep us scrolling on Instagram till the wee hours of the morning like nail art. In recent years, we have become obsessed with nails of all lengths with elaborate designs. Some of our favorite celebs are now known for their nails in addition to their style. Who would have thought?

Our nails are a place where we can express ourselves without limits. Like how Chanel West celebrated the release of her new song “Anchors” with, you guessed it, some anchor and nautical-themed nails. The 31-year-old’s mani was encrusted in details like sea shells and pearls.

Although stunning, jaw dropping nails have quite the price tag. Last December Cardi B, the nail queen herself, took to Instagram to rant about the price of beauty. “Lemme tell y’all motherf—–s something. It’s getting more and more expensive — nah, for real — it’s getting more expensive to maintain us, women,” the 26-year-old said.  She added that her mani pedi probably costs her around $200.

As we know, nails aren’t always this expensive, but if you want the Cardi special, you better save up. Even though blinged out nails are pricey, Cardi’s nail technician, Jenny Bui, says bedazzled nails are a great way to feel fancy without buying real diamonds. “Everybody … a lot of people around the world are inspired by my nails, bling, so, you know, some people don’t have money to buy the diamonds, so the nail inspires them to have the diamonds, have their nails done, have the bling bling, so they feel so special too,” she told Life & Style exclusively.

Celebs like the “I Like It” singer and Kylie Jenner are always giving us major nail envy, but where do these lucky ladies go to get their nails did? We have rounded up the top nail influencers that create the most luxurious nails for the stars. From Swarovski crystals to extremely detailed hand-painted designs, there is no limit to what these nail techs can do.
