5 Influencer Pics to Inspire Your #Nailfie Game

By Jordan Hill | January 7, 2021 | Style & Beauty Style & Beauty

Save your selfies—the #nailfie is the latest trend taking over the ’gram. In honor of JEZEBEL’s art issue, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites that are sure to inspire you to try out the nail art trend.

01/ Sarah Busby admits that a good nail tech is a must for a perfect polish job. When it comes time to switch it up, Busby visits David L. Vu at The Haute Spot Nail Boutique. “I bring two to three inspiration photos,” she says. “He is so creative and always tweaks the design to make it better.”


02/ Madeleine Minotto’s minimalistic mani is accentuated with a simple star. “I love to change it up; you will never see me with the same color nails or nail design.” Hit up Les Mains Nail Bar to get her look.


03/ Our camera roll already has several screenshots of Adabelle Buntrock’s picture-perfect paws. The influencer never shies away from showcasing over-the-top trends. “When it’s time for my nail appointment, I select a design I really like—sometimes two—and figure out how to blend them together or inspire a totally new look,” says Buntrock. @thehautespot


04/ For a trendy take on traditional tips, take a page out of Haley Brown’s book. Brown describes her Pharaoh Nails and Spa design as “perfect for colder seasons with a simplistic look.” @‌pharaohnailsandspa


05/ “You can tell a lot about a woman by the style of her nails!” says Melanie Felice Spencer. “I love simple and graphic designs that are both professional and eye-catching.” Here, Spencer shows off an abstract design expertly executed by Wendy Nguyen at The Haute Spot Nail Boutique. @thehautespot
