Kim Kardashian nail art

From Rita Ora's diamond manicure at the VMAs to Georgia May Jagger's quirky sushi-patterned design, celebrities have been taking nail art to another level and sharing the results on their Instagram pages. Even stars including reality TV queen Kim Kardashian, who usually favours short and simple nails, opted for some dramatically long nails as she and husband Kanye West headed to Paris Fashion Week earlier this year.

Meanwhile singer Lily Allen, who is renowned for her love of nail art and fearless approach to experimenting with different patterns and nail shapes, showed off an impressive design of florals and Japanese symbols as she prepared for a trip to Japan. The mother-of-three also shared a photo of her metallic silver nails as she headed to Glastonbury. Model Gigi Hadid also turned heads with her festival-esque nail art design, teamed with a boho chic skirt for ultimate laidback cool.

Celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Rita Ora often share photos of their nails on Instagram

Meanwhile, Kylie Jenner has steadily garnered a large fan base for her daring and bold manicures which see her rock everything from dramatically long nails with nude nail polish to polish matching her outfits. The 17-year-old particularly wowed fans after she shared a photo of a manicure which saw the tips and cuticles of her nails painted a shade of black, keeping the rest of her nails nude for a contrasting effect.

Katy Perry also caused a social media during the week of the Superbowl in February, and not just because of her spectacular musical performance on the big night. The Waking Up In Vegas pop star shared a photo on Instagram of a particularly special pedicure which saw her toenails painted with American football patterns, ahead of the big game.
