13 Celebrity Nail Artists You Need to Follow ASAP

I’ve always wanted to do the mini nail-runway they have at the Oscars. Alas, I’m not a famous actress and nor will I ever be. To make matters worse, I routinely bite my nails and don’t have an ounce of artistic blood running through my veins.

So to uplift my non-actress, non-famous, nail-biter life, I’ve taken to Instagram to find the raddest 13 celebrity nail artists around. These ladies and lads take to the nail like a canvas; creating intricate patterns and applying hardware one would think was solely meant for clothing. Their clients range from Kerry Washington to Ke$ha, but one thing they all have is an Instagram feed filled with major, drool-worthy inspiration.

Even if you can’t replicate half of their designs (like me), their art is too good to pass up. Check out some of their handy work below, test a few out and let your nail imagination run wild.

Glitz and glam is the staple of this artist, who does nails for Cardi B.
