Inspiration for your next beauty look can be found anywhere. During a stroll through the city, you'll likely see a few hair and makeup trends that pique your interest. Manicures, however, are a completely different arena. While you can certainly spot a cool set while waiting for the train, you're better off scrolling through Instagram. The platform is brimming with manicure trends and fun looks. 

Makeup and skin influencers have settled and made TikTok their home. But for nail influencers, there's no place like Instagram. The carousel feature allows them to display a range of looks and even create a curated bundle of inspiration. Then, there are the videos and reels that give you a behind-the-scenes peek at how to recreate the manicure yourself.

Finding inspiration isn't hard when you know where to look. With that in mind, we gathered the top nail Instagram accounts to follow for daily creations.

Hey Great Nails

You can't talk DIY manicures without mentioning Aistė Haas, the artist behind the @heygreatnails account. From trendy designs to cool nail art, her content knows no bounds. She even frequently posts videos guiding you through the look each step of the way. It's no wonder her account has become a staple for magazines and mood boards everywhere. 

Glossy Tipped

Cerise, better known as @glossytipped online, is another industry favorite. Her account features bold designs that have a maximalist edge. While they're not the easiest to DIY, they serve as excellent inspiration when heading to the salon. Bookmark a few for a special occasion; you won't be sorry you did.


Sarah Haidar is a true veteran in the creator community, and her Instagram account, @heluviee, proves it. Her manicure styles range from handpainted nail art to of-the-moment colors and fun seasonal looks. However, the best part of this account is Haidar's many takes on the classic French manicure. You can never go wrong with the traditional design. But if you're following @heluviee, you'll always have options if you want a fresh twist.
