Most women will agree that having a beautiful manicure and nice nails are a great way to increase your confidence. I’ve been going to the same blow wave bar for years and I get my fancy gel nails done there too. Last time I was at the beauty bar, I saw this woman that had the most amazing nail art. I loved it so I decided to look into nail art myself, and I’ve shared my the best nail artists I could find below.
Nail artists take inspiration in just about anything – like all artists. With a desire to enhance your look, complement a wardrobe or to stand up for a certain mood, possibilities for nail art and design are limitless. Here are some of the best nail artists that you can follow on Instagram (Ig)
Madeline Poole, searchable on Instagram as @mpnails, specializes in editorial manicure which was featured in Vogue, Teen Vogue, V Magazine, InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar and many more. She’s a veteran in the field and has a nail portfolio in which each hue plays a great role in representing her vision of certain nail design.
Sally Hansen appointed Madeline of the Global Color Ambassador in January 2014. A New York-based agency, BRIDGE represents Madeline as she is a New Yorker.
Hang Nguyen, a.k.a. Moon, specializes in minimalist, yet impactful designs. She is beyond extraordinary in making the ordinary nail polish amplified with mini drawings or minimalist design which follows the saying, “Less is more.”

Celebrity manicurist Betina R. Goldstein enhances nail art with the use of pearls, chains, and manicure rings. She transforms short nails into something fun, elegant and spontaneous. Besides the fact that these embellishments make the whole process of manicuring quite challenging, she also does it on short nails which tends to get too crowded there. But now with Betina.
She had mastered these so well that she is adding this up to what she had put up for herself, the DoubleMoss Jewelry. Indulge in Betina’s works by following her via Ig under @betina_goldstein.
