If You Love Acrylic Nails, These Instagram Accounts Will Give You Life

These Instagrams are every nail-lover’s dream come true. Follow these accounts to get your daily dose of acrylic heaven.

 

 

 

 

@banicured_

 

 

 

What we love most about Bana’s Instagram account is that she puts up YouTube tutorials, so you can recreate her nail looks (except maybe not as ~flawless~ as hers). She also loves taking TV and movies and using them as inspo—she’s got acrylic nails inspired by Finding Dory, The Simpsons, Scooby Doo, Game of Thrones, and more.

 

 

 

 

 

@followthatway

 

 

 

Annabel from @followthatway has gorgeous, vintage-looking nail designs that the girly-girl inside of you is sure to love. She’s especially fond of flowers and has a special talent for painting roses.

 

 

 

 

@laquenailbar

 

 

 

Laqué Nail Bar in Hollywood, CA is best known for their unique stiletto and ballerina-shaped nail designs. They have a devoted following of almost 2 million on Instagram, and looking at their incredible designs, it isn’t hard to understand why.

 

 

 

 

@getbuffednails

 

 

 

This Insta account has us drooling over its pretty pastels, everything from aquamarine to peach. They also have dainty Disney designs like Cinderella and Bambi. One of their recent posts says, “It’s okay to love your nails more than you love most people.” Agreed.

 

 

 

 

@yessynailjewels

 

 

 

If her Instagram name didn’t clue you in, Yessica is a big fan of nail jewels. No doubt her blinged-out clients are always prepared with the sassiest of finger-wagging.

 

 

 

 

@_stephsnails_

 

 

 

Stephanie Loesh at Steph’s Nails has endless inspo for your next #ManiMonday. We’re especially loving this dreamcatcher look.

 

 

 

 

@philglamournails

 

 

 

Phillip from Nail Bar & Beauty Lounge in Beverly Hills, CA sticks to simple, classy looks like this gorgeous lilac.

 

 

 

 

@alexander.stepanov

 

 

 

Using tiny paintbrushes, Alexander Stepanov creates intricate designs on acrylic nails—completely free-hand. His Instagram account has mesmerizing videos of him painting foxes, skylines, and phases of the moon, all on tiny nail canvases.

 

 

 

 

@nailsbymztina

 

 

 

The self-proclaimed “Matte Queen” is based out of Houston, Texas. One look at her Insta game and you’ll fall in love (and possibly consider moving to Texas).

 

 

 

 

@nitanails

 

 

 

If you prefer more simple acrylic nail designs, check out Anita Tran’s Instagram. Her oval ombré’s will have you swooning.

 

 

 

 

@nails_by_alba

 

 

 

We love the accent nail trend, and Alba takes it to the next level. Her account is decorated with bright colors and no lack of bejeweled accent nails.

We’re obsessed with these nautical nails by Marina Hamberg. Get your nauti fix at her salon in Chicago—or just follow her on Instagram.

 

 

 

 

@britneytokyo

 

 

 

Britney Tokyo’s nail designs are “Tokyo meets Hollywood,” and she has hand-painted designs featuring everything from Pokémon Go to Chinese takeout. This set was inspired by Coachella.
