We never feel as fancy as we do post mani – there’s just something about having pristine nails, filed, painted and preened to perfection, it really is the ultimate act of self-indulgence. And where better to get all our inspo from than celebs that consistently have killer manicures? Long gone are the days of boring, bland nudes – nope, we’re after something altogether more extra. From neon stars (will we ever be over THAT Kylie mani) to sparkling, dip dye talons, we’ve rounded up the fiercest lewks to take to your manicurist.
1 Bella Hadid
Remember when French manicures were white? Lol, us neither. The 2019 update is all about colourful tips – the brighter the better, tbh. Bella Hadid proved this, after she uploaded a pic of her nails alongside two other coloured French manis. While Bella’s tips are a canary yellow, her friends have gone for orange and lilac hues. We’d be lying if we said we’re not going to copy this…
2 Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
The queen of minimalism, we always head to Rosie’s Insta page when we’re looking for fashion and beauty inspo. Case in point: this pic of her super simple, but incredibly chic manicure by none other than nail extraordinaire, Betina Goldstein. If you’re not already a fan, know that she serves some of the best low key nail inspo in the biz and we strongly suggest giving her a follow. Rosie captioned the pic, ‘I call this The Reverse Frenchie ??.’ We stan.
3 Gigi Hadid
@nailsbymei strikes again – this time she’s behind Gigi’s fleeky fruit design holiday nails, and aren’t they just the most adorable thing EVER. Showing off just how talented she is, she captioned the pic: ‘@gigihadidSummer vacation Nails no.2 is Fruits ????????? #nailsbymei #handpainted.’ Incase you missed that – each tiny little summer fruit was painted by hand. Oh the detail…
4 Rita Ora
One of the baddest celebrity nail artists out there, Britney Tokyo just proved that hole-punch nails are about to be the next big thing. She created the killer mani for Rita Ora and captioned the snap: ‘Tie-dye happy vibes??✨ @ritaora.’ Before you freak out – the hole only goes through the acrylic nail. If anyone knows a salon that can do this, please let us know immediately, cause we’re all over it.
5 Selena Gomez
Who knew tangerine manis could be SO major. Erm, apparently Selena’s nail artist, who uploaded the gorge pic to his Insta, captioning it: ‘@selenagomez wanted a peachy orange ? how good is this color and nail shape on her though?! #WCW#nailsbytombachik #nailcolor by @tammytaylornails.’ We are so here for it.
6 Kylie Jenner
Two things. One: how on earth does Kylie use her phone, or do anything with nails that long? Two: we will be booking in to get tie-dye nails in the immediate future.
7 Dua Lipa
Dua’s back with another mani to make us reel with jealousy. The star was sporting a fitting, jelly manicure at Cannes last week and TBH we are still not over it.
8 Kylie Jenner
Queen of memorable manis, Kylie Jenner headed to Coachella with nails covered in neon stars and we’ve never wanted anything more, tbh.
9 Dua Lipa
Usually Dua’s showcasing some wild manicures but these monochrome squiggly nails are a cute update from a plain old nude, without being OTT.
10 Khloe Kardashian
We often wonder how Khloe manages to use her phone, because gurrlll – those are some talons. After receiving backlash from fans saying she couldn’t look after True with such long, pointy nails, we weren’t sure if she would get them shortened. By the looks of things, though, she’s keeping them as extra as ever. Can someone tell us this shade ASAP, please.
11 Imaan Hammam
This might just be the most magical manicure we’ve EVER seen. Everything from the neon tips, to the soft shimmery glitter, model Imaan really knows how to werk it.
12 Gigi Hadid
To celebrate her 24th birthday, Gigi Hadid treated herself to some gloriously summery, yellow nails, finished off with swirling tie-dye effects and her star sign. LOVE.
13 Kylie Jenner
Nothing to see here, just Kylie killing it once again with these dreamy, neon dip-dyed nails.
14 Kendall Jenner
Remember when you used to sit in class, colouring in each one of your nails with different highlighter pens? Nope, just us then? Well, Kendall Jenner’s latest multicoloured manicure is giving us allll the nostalgic feels and we’re planning to take this picture to our salon ASAP.
15 Kendall Jenner
Cow nails? Who knew they could be so cool. We can’t work out if it’s just because Kendall’s got them or they’re a legitimate trend. Either way, she’s werking it and we might just werk it too.
