There are a LOT of nail blogs out there, but among all of them there are some that just stand out. Here is a list of my favorite established nail art blogs that I read on at least a weekly basis. There are a LOT more in my blog feed, but these are the ones that I count on for regular inspiration and that “oooo, ahhhh” feeling I just love.
Some are great for everyday nail art design inspiration and others have really great tutorials and swatches of new polish lines. I have also included a couple of blogs toward the bottom that are exclusively for shorter nail gals, because I lived most my life with shorter nails, and my right hand is still growing out — so I know how it is.
The permanent page for this post can always be found in the sidebar under “Blogs I Love.” I will keep updating the page and adding new blogs to check out as I found truly outstanding sites that I want to share with everyone. I hope you find lots of new nail art to love and experiment with, happy painting!

“I was stuck in bed for two years – laying flat on my back. I can still paint my nails, I bet. I turned my sick bed into a salon. Everytime I looked at my hands it gave me a sense of self and something to be proud of. When my friends came to visit me, it wasn’t like oh I’m sick girl. Have you see my nails? They’re fly!”
