Becky G is looking like a bronze goddess.
She's got this whole bronze on bronze on bronze thing going and we are so here for it. Zoom in on her nails and behold the metalic wonderfulness of them. It's such a gorgeous color even if you don't go for an overall bronze look with everything else.
Kyle Jenner has us craving a good lookin' ombré.
Kylie opted for a pink ombré, but we're thinking shades of orange would look fantastic too, like a sunset almost. We love the creamy sort of soft matte look of the nail polish that Kylie chose. There's something so dreamy and soothing about it.
For those times you can't decide between equally lovely colors.
This look also comes to you courtesy of Kyle Jenner. Sometimes when trying to decide between two equally lovely shades of nail color, you need to let yourself stay undecided and just go for both.
Khloé has got us finishing the caption on this photo.
When Khloé Kardashian posted this photo, she captioned it: "That face you make when _______." We can't resist a photo caption challenge so here's what we're filling the blank in with: That face you make when your nails are perfection!
Chiquis Rivera has got a perfect shade of plink on her nails.
Forget about whatever she's holding in her hand. Just focus on her nails and in particular the color. Is it pink? Is it a purplish pink? Is it plink? Can we get a gallon of it?
Karol G has a thing for neon.
The Colombian singer has us contemplating neon as a neutral. OK, neon shades as neutrals, what do you think? Probably not, but neon shades with neutrals or with black and white combos? Yes! Yes! Yes!
Beyoncé brings back the French manicure.
It's true that a French manicure is a classic, but Beyoncé is making it look so fresh and contemporary. We likey and we wanty. We also like the idea of switching up the white part for another color like say plink?
Another idea to steal from Queen B.
Pick two contrasting nail colors and get creative. Pick one of the colors as the base for all but one nail on each hand. Then add stripes here and there. It's not too flashy and very interesting.
Say hello to yellow just like J. Lo.
Hello sunshine! This brightest of bright yellows gives us life. It's cheerful, vibrant, and absolutely intoxicating. Thank you for the inspiration, Jennifer.
Cardi B goes for a warmer shade of yellow.
In case J. Lo's bold yellow nails are just a tad too bold for you, remember that there are lots of shades of yellow to choose from. Cardi's yellow is a bit warmer even though it's still hecka bright. Yellow can be as bright or as mellow as you want it.
J. Lo back in pink!
For this look Jennifer Lopez opted for a bright pink that rivals cotton candy for attention. It's a sweet look for sure. Gives us a kind of sugar high just by looking at it.
Selena Gomez shows us that there is grace in a basic manicure.
Sometimes you don't want long nails or a complicated color scheme. Sometimes you just want your nails to look like they are cared for, like they've been treated with love. Like you don't bite them.
But then again, Thalía makes us want to go over the top.
What would you call these? Disco nails? They shimmer, they shine, they sparkle. They make us want to dance! They aren't for every day, but every day you wear them is going to feel like a party.
Guess who these nails belong to?
These nails belong to Selena Gomez. The tiny tattoos might have been a giveaway. Don't you just adore the peachy color? So fun! Just goes to show you don't have to have long nails to have fabulous nails.
Rihanna in nude.
Not to be confused with Rihanna in the nude. This is a nude you can wear in public without being arrested. Unless, you wear this nude out in public while you're in the nude. That probably would get you arrested. Appreciated by many, but arrested.
Look away from the abs for a second.
Dang, Gina Rodriguez has got killer abs. Go ahead and admire them and when you are done, take a look at her nails. Do you see that color? It's like a blueish gray. Periwinkle? It's nice.
Our open letter to Penelope Cruz.
Could you pretty please tell us the name of the color that you have on your nails in this picture? We really like and want to wear it with a matching trench coat.
Do you know who Kaia Gerber is?
Kai Gerber is supermodel Cindy Crawford's daughter. She's doing the modeling thing herself because she's pretty much her mother's twinsie. But, anyway, meet her hands and behold this playful manicure. Don't you just love it? If you don't love it, it's better if you don't tell us.
How about these nails on Lizzo?
We cannot take our eyes off of the singer's nails! This drip effect ending in a heart is just way too easy to love. That light pink is so precious and innocent. And those drips are kind of scary.
Don't hate us for loving Selena Gomez.
Yes, we know we've shown you a few examples of Selena Gomez's nails for inspiration, but can you blame us? She gets her nails done in great ways. We're even thinking of trying to recreate this look on our own. Our stars will probably come out all wonky, but whatever.
