I’ve always wanted to do the mini nail runway at the Oscars. Alas, I’m not a famous actress nor will I ever be. To make matters worse, I routinely bite my nails and don’t have an ounce of artistic blood running through my veins.

So to uplift my non-actress, non-famous, nail-biter life, I’ve taken to Instagram to find the 13 raddest celebrity nail artists around. These ladies and lads take to the nail like a canvas; creating intricate patterns and applying hardware one would think were meant solely for clothing. Their clients range from Kerry Washington to Ke$ha, but one thing they all have is an Instagram feed filled with major droolworthy inspiration.
