A trend setter for manicure lovers everywhere, Unistella is run by nail queen Park Eun-Kyung who is famous for celebrity nails and magazine editorials worldwide. The nail designs are subtle enough that you can have them at work without feeling overdone, yet edgy and colourful enough to make a statement. Keep an eye out for crosses, small prints, and our favourite: lots of glitter. Unistella is most famous for the “shattered glass” nail trend and the “wire nail” trend that took the internet by storm!

Luxe by Tracy Lee documents the work of leading manicure teacher and super mum Tracy Lee. She is known for pushing the boundaries with her nail art, from glitter-lined cuticles to small sculptures. Her nail art peaked when she introduced edible nail art to the world (yummy!). She has even managed to hang jewellery and charms off nails. The sky is the limit for this wonder-manicurist!

Hailing from London, Sophie Harris-Greenslade got her first big break on a shoot with M.I.A for W magazine where Donatella Versace commented that the nails were fabulous.

Nails by Mei Kawajiri
Necklaces hanging from your nails? Mei can do it. Buttons attached to nails? Mei can do it. The most ridiculous nail designs you can ever imagine? You can bet your bottom dollar that Mei can do it. With political statement nails and designs so outlandish you’d think they were imagined, it’s not difficult to see why Mei has become the wild child of the nail world.
Born and raised in Tokyo, Britney now calls New York her home thanks to her rising success and 3D artwork. With big, bold, colourful nail designs and clients such as Kim Kardashian and Ariana Grande, Britney Tokyo is taking over the world with her work. Expect big cartoon designs and impossibly small sculptures, did we mention that they’re all hand painted?
Designs by Natalie Minerva include polka dots, stickers, and a helluva lotta glitter. Known for her simple yet effective bling nails, Natalie Minerva has some serious inspiration for those looking to colour their stiletto shaped nails.
Drooling over these amazing nail designs but unable to get them done due to nail biting? Tut, tut! Time to kick that habit once and for all.
