Gone are the days of simple manicures with a single colour in blush or nude tones. Now, more than ever before, lots of us are experimenting with bold, clashing shades and pretty, chic nail art. Whether it’s gradient nails in pastel tones, or bright fuchsia tips that play on the 90s French manicure – we’re becoming more expressive and experimental in the nail art arena than ever before.

Perhaps it’s because of the wider selection of products available (Ciaté nail stickers, I’m looking at you) or maybe it’s down to the fact a little bit of colour and fun (be it on our nails, face, or clothes) can give us all the instant mood-boost we need - whatever the reason, we’re here for it and it seems like the A-list circuit is, too.

Just WOW. Khloe's latest manicure is totally OTT but we love it. The long, pointed nails give a fresh, glamorous take on the '90s French manicure with silver, foiled tips.

We're head over heels for this more minimal design from Kylie. From dots to stripes and stars, each nail has a unique pattern painted on in a different colourful hue. Now, where can we get the rings to go with it?

We can't stop staring at Megan's nail art. The bold, beautiful colours, the intricate detail of the dragons - it really is a masterpiece that takes nail art to an entire new level. I think we'll reserve this design for the professionals...

If you're after something delicate and minimal, take inspiration from Hailey Baldwin Bieber. Her latest nail look is so adorable with prettifying daisies painted onto sheer, almond-shaped gels. Perfect for summer.

Just wow. These bejewelled nails c/o of nail legend, Tom Bachik are so bouji and as as Bachik says - 'fit for Queen J-Lo.' A white base coat is used before silver glitter and rhinestones are carefully placed on top.

We can always rely on Lizzo for a hefty dose of beauty inspo, and her latest mani is no exception. The metallic, pink and green nails with rhinestones on top are what we're calling 'rave-chic'.

Perennially cool, these pop-art inspired nails by nail legend, Michelle Humphrey are so fun and joyful. We love the clashing primary colours, the painted on white curve to mimic shine and the black outline.
