9 nail art Instagram accounts you need to follow

Janelle Monae BET Awards

When nail art hit the mainstream a few years back, we all went nuts.

Since then, we’ve gone from one extreme to another and back again.  From naked nails buffed to perfection and wear-anywhere nude hues to shimmering metallics and chunky glitters – it seems we’re always eschewing one trend for another, being the fickle creatures we are.

But wherever you fall on the spectrum, there’s always something to be inspired by in the world of nails. Here are a few of our favourite nail artists to follow on Instagram.
