If celebrities can dream it, nail artists can likely manicure it. Celebrity nail art often goes beyond traditional matte colorings, incorporating elements of sparkle, intricate artwork, and dazzling details that make for literal art. Even if your current contact list doesn't include a nail artist on call, you can always take note for your own DIY attempt.
With celebrities swapping out their mani as often as they change hair colors, keeping up with the trendiest looks is no easy task. However, NYLON has you covered, with a continually updated collection of the best celebrity manicures of 2021. Stay tuned to see whether this year's trending looks take a nod from last year's love of Powerpuff Girls, clouds, and floral print.
Below, catch up on the best celebrity manicures of 2021.
