The Coolest Celeb Nail Art You’ll Be Obsessed With

If Riri were a nail color, this badass neon red would be her ~soul shade~.

The Riverdale star went totally Cheryl Blossom with this prim blush polish.

I’m all about that bass, but girl, let’s talk about this nail color! Meghan stunted with glitter-tipped rose gold nails.

Nina Dobrev’s Artsy Paint Strokes

Nina rocked a simplistic abstract nail that’s actually super easy to recreate. Just make a single stripe of different neutral shades across the tip of your nails, then cover with a clear coat.

Patrick Starrr’s Crystal-Studded Nails

Rhinestones, glitter, blood red, and a touch of hologram – these nails are just as wonderfully extra as the beauty guru himself.

Kylie Jenner’s Squad Nails

King Kylie and her besties Anastasia Karanikolaou and Heather Sanders went for complimentary coffin nails. Bonus points to Heather for those sick Nike swoosh jelly nails.

Yara Shahidi’s Reverse French Mani

This is a cool 2018 update to a classic French tip. White on the bottom and a punch of metallic on top.

Rita Ora’s Sequined Rainbow Nails

Calling all mermaids! This sequin-covered mani looks channels the metallic glint of a fish’s scales. So glam.

Kendall Jenner’s Neon Nails

This electric shade of orange is currently the hottest color of the summer – according to the Kardashian/Jenner family. Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, and Kyliehave all been spotted wearing this hue, but Kendall chose a more subtle take with a simple coat of orange on her nails. Looks like I need to go polish shopping!

Kylie Jenner’s Rhinestone Mani

Juicy Couture tracksuits are SHAKING. Kylie put a ’90s twist on a classic nude nail, adding iridescent rhinestones to her mani.

Kylie Jenner’s Stormi Mani

Mama Kylie proves nude doesn’t have to be boring. She added a tiny silver “s” for her daughter Stormi to pump up her neutral nails.

Kim Kardashian’s Conversation Heart Mani

For her heart-themed photoshoot for her new Kimoji fragrance, Kimmy added tiny (faux) candy pieces to her pastel pink nails. Major V Day inspo.

Kylie Jenner’s Crimson Matte Nails

The queen of coffin nails celebrated Valentine’s Day by bringing back the matte nail trend. She rocked a toned-down shade of blood red and shared a pic on Snapchat.

Jordyn Wood’s Sleek Nude Nails

Jordyn (just like the Kardashian/Jenner clan) loves the be ~in the buff~. Her long, nude nails look simply stunning.

Bella Thorne’s Iridescent Green

Furthering her love of all things sparkly, Bella showed off this shimmering mani in a shade of emerald that any Slytherin would love.

Kylie Jenner’s Metallic Brown

Forever trying crazy nail colors, Kylie rocked the most unexpected metallic hue: brown. The chocolate mani is so glam.

Rihanna’s Emeralds

Ri’s deep green nails add a fun pop of emerald to her all blue-and-diamond outfit.

Katy Perry’s Find Me Mani

To promote her single “Chained to the Rhythm,” Katy left disco balls all over the world for fans to find. She asked her followers to track them down with this cute black and white mani.

Kylie Jenner’s Matte Blue

King Kylie and her friend Heather Sanders both got coffin nails — Kylie in light blue. Her mani is an exact match for Skylie blue, a limited-edition Lip Kit shade she released last summer for the Fourth of July.

Blake Lively’s “Harry Potter” Nails

Blake embraced her inner Potterhead with this stellar blank space mani featuring the Deathly Hallows symbol.

Bella Thorne’s Blue And Green 3D Mani

Bella hit up New York Fashion Week rocking the coolest 3D nail art! The combo of navy and emerald colors make the mani super unique. The glam design is made even better by her killer ring game!

Abstract Neons

Get artsy with your nails and go for an abstract look. There are no rules! Just grab some neon colors, some tape and small brushes, and go crazy!

Simple Plaid

Plaid is so perfect for the beginning of school. These nails take the popular print and make it a little more sophisticated by going super minimal. After your base color dries just use a tiny brush to apply the lines!

Modern Minimalist

This look is super chic and super simple. Use bold colors and tape to perfect the minimalist aesthetic.

Rhinestone Accents

Add some glamour to your nails without going overboard with some rhinestone accents. Paint your nails and then, once they are completely dry, apply the rhinestones with some nail glue!

Statement Accessories

Add some simple flair to your nails with some appliqués. Apply your favorite color and add on the gems with nail glue.

Fun Feathers

Friends will flock when they spot this frilly paint job! Make the feathery bits really pop by applying three coats before sealing with a top coat.

Ombré Sparkles

Add some sparkles to every look with these glittery nails. Start with a clear base coat and then, starting from the middle of your nail, working to the end, so a coat of sparkles. Continue with more coats, but start closer to the tip of your nail each time.

Spotted Ombré

A spare pencil is all you need for this chic ombré! Dip the point in dark purple polish and dot from the tips to the middle of your nails. Then dab lavender just in the middle and silver closer to the cuticle.

Cool Leather

Some polishes have a matte, leathery look that will give you just the right finish for rock-and-roll nails! Let the first coat dry completely, then add dots or stripes in a different color for a tough but still girly vibe.

Glitzy Blues

The newest way to glam up your mani: Paint on a high-gloss color, then coat tips with a polish that has a sandy, glittery finish. Skip the top coat—the contrast between shiny and rough highlights the look!

Rose-Gold Shimmer

It’s time to shine! Paint on a coat of metallic rose gold, and then layer on two coats of pink glitter. Multiple coats score you an even sparkle all over!

Fun Doodles

Reward yourself with some cuteness after a chem cram! Paint on two coats of your fave bright color. While the polish is still tacky, use the tip of an unfolded paper clip to etch out squiggles, lines, and zigzags.

Dark Plaid

Preppy nails scream “First day of school.” Apply two coats of dark purple polish and let them dry completely. Then use a striker brush to draw thin crisscross lines of red, black, and white!
