Here are ten nail artists you should follow on Instagram ASAP.


Tom Bachik is the mind behind some of the most gorgeous sets on social media. His Instagram features iconic manicures on our favorite celebrities, like Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez and many more. Whether he’s painting a gorgeous red shade or creating a more intricate design, his manicures are everything.

Easily one of our most favorite follows is Eichi Matsunaga. Originally from Tokyo, Matsunaga now works in NYC, where he treats clients with some of the most beautiful abstract nail art we’ve seen. His 3D designs are unmatched, and we’re obsessed.


Amy Le is a Los Angeles-based nail artist whose Instagram aesthetic is to die for. All of her gorgeous designs are hand drawn, and each detail is perfectly executed. Having been featured in web and print publications, Le’s work is definitely worth the follow.


Kimmie Kyees is another manicurist you should be following. Not only does she provide celebs with the manicures of their dreams, but she brings a lot of positive vibes to her feed as well. Most recently, Kyees enlisted some of her friends to donate blood in honor of her longtime client, Chrissy Teigen.


Ryan Myer serves the perfect mix of fun and elegance on his Instagram. Although his manicures have a more playful vibe, his artistry is still on point. What sets his posts apart is his fun addition of small figurines to match each set posted on his feed.
