There has been a growing fascination with nail art lately. The most recent viral trend is the matchstick nail, which could literally catch fire and light a cigarette.
Of course, not everyone would want a fire-hazard manicure. Sometimes a simple polish can do. But if you’re feeling #extra, a few rhine stones can also do the trick. They look great for the ‘gram too. That said, we looked at the go-to nail artists and salons of celebrities so you know where to book an appointment next.

This salon has an impressive list of celeb clients which include names like Jessy Mendiola, Alex Gonzaga, Denise Laurel, and Charo Santos-Cancio.
