The Best Nail Art Blogs

Social Media Love

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!

Miss Pop NailsSimcha Whitehill, better known as Miss Pop Nails, knows what to do when life gives you lemons:

“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!”
– Quote from NAILgasm
