Every two months or so, I attempt to grow out my nails. It never ever works out, but for some reason, I keep attempting to cover up my inevitable man hands with unnaturally long nails. They break the second I button my jeans and it goes downhill from there. Despite this, I still thoroughly enjoy the idea of one day having the time and money to get my nails done so it *seems* like I was born with pretty nails (I wasn’t – thanks mom). Until then, I just have to gain an arsenal of inspo, and what better place to do so other than Instagram. In these oh-so-trying times, these IG accounts get me through it. Here are my favorite nailspo pages that you can use to copy (ahem, inspire) for your next manicure:
a specialist in sheer nude + funky designs
the coolest hand-painted lewks
insta-baddie in a nail account. Amazing.
airbrushed nails with lotssss of gems
the queen of making nails look like a painting.
she does Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s nails, so she’s obviously good.
Aside from the fact that shes a fellow Chicagoian, @astrowifey truly has some of the coolest designs and diverse styles.
My definite favorite nail account isn’t even fully a nail account; nail artist turned Nike AF1 Queen @jessicawashick has some of the freshest looks on my feed.
