The Nail Art Instagram Inspiration Trend

Nail Art Instagram

Dua Lipa has opened our eyes to a world of nail art in 2020 by brightening our Instagram feeds with her neon plaid nails, rainbow-hued flame nails or in some cases lilac checkered nails. Whether you’re a one shade manicure kind of girl or prefer more detailed artwork, here are the top Instagram accounts that I’ve selected to give you nailspiration before giving yourself a manicure. Just be warned girls that when scrolling through these Instagram accounts, you may have the sudden urge to run and grab a nail varnish, not like I did or anything…
