I always like to recommend nail artists to follow on Instagram to my friends. Nail art is becoming a bigger trend than ever before. I know I always feel complete when my nails are done but when they’re done to a T I feel like a politician right before elections... I just need to shake everyone’s hand to show off my fingertips. Anyways, here are 7 amazing nail artists to follow on Instagram!
Sparrownails is one of my favourite nail artists to follow on Instagram. I especially like Sparrow Nails by Darcy Sparrow because this account introduced me to a lot of nail polish brands I was unfamiliar with before. I also discovered some new types of nail polish via Sparrownails like thermo nail polish, holo glitter, glow in the dark polish, and more! What I like the most about Sparrownails is her posts vary from complicated nail designs that I would never dream of duplicating to simpler designs that are worth trying with the right equipment.
From simple to outrageous, Nailscamera has it all! Nailscamera’s style is eccentric but very adorable at the same time! Nailscamera has done everything from basic grey nail polish to painting ocean scenery on nails. The talent is obvious and this is a fun Instagram account to follow because it’s full of imagination and creativity and you never know what kind of nail art you’ll see on your newsfeed!
If you like extravagant, over the top, opulent things in life then this is one account you should follow. I wouldn’t put D Marie’s nail creations under the «practical» category but they sure are gorgeous to look at it. NailsbyDMarie’s signature style as of recently includes a lot nail jewels, long nails and bright pops of colour.
I love this Instagram account because it’s simple pictorial tutorials for complicated nail designs. If I had the right equipment and enough nail polish, I would be decking my nails out every weekend with adorable nail designs. The tutorials are simple to follow and with a steady can turn out great... you will never have to pay for manicure again thanks to Ournailtutorials!
This account is for people like me who have two left nails when it comes to painting nails. Madamluck is extremely talented and works with great detail and precision so I would never think twice about doing some of the things she does. However, the reason why I suggest following her is because she also posts pretty basic nail art which are fool proof – usually just two coats of a polish, the colours she use are usually ones I would never have tried otherwise. So I recommend this account if you’re bored with your nail polish and are looking for new colours and brands to try.
Fullcolournails is the perfect account to follow if you’re a beginner at nail art. The designs posted are pretty basic and are usually level 2 or level 3 nail art. Fullcolournails is good for inspiration, or even attempting to copy, if you’re looking to add detail to your polish.
ChelseaQueen’s work is a perfect medium between complicated and simple. She doesn’t usually incorporate nail stickers or jewellery with her nail art. However, her designs do take a lot of precision and patience. If you ever find yourself with a day off and more nail polish than you need, check out her Instagram - you might find a design you like and with enough practice it can look like Chelsea did your nails for you!
Practice makes perfect so don’t feel discouraged if you’re nail art skill isn’t as high as you would like it to be. Plus, following the accounts mentioned above and more will serve as inspiration for your next art project. Who are your favourite nail artists to follow?
