I’ve always dreamt of having someone paint my nails with beautiful designs, ones with gems like on those nail art YouTube channels. Recovering from being a chronic nail biter during my childhood, there isn’t much for nail technicians to work with. I’ve always had small nails—even if they were already “long.” 

Acrylic nails have been a trend recently. From Cardi B to Blackpink and other K-pop idols, we see them sport different designs on their artificially long nails. This encouraged the YouTube community to do challenges similar to ET Style’s video entitled “Living A Day With Cardi B’s Nails.”

Whether you’d want to live life like Cardi B or just want some pretty nails, I’ve rounded up some nail salons that do these types of nails.
