This Fashion Editor Is Totally Winning The #NailArt Game

Get inspired.

share with your friends
With over 20 years of content curation under her belt, it's no surprise that Michelle Lee is making serious waves as the Editor-in-Chief of Allure Magazine. As you would expect, having a fabulous wardrobe comes with the territory for Lee, who never disappoints in the domain of fashion. 

The Warwick, New York native is an Instagram addict, posting photos ranging from selfies on-the-job to seriously stunning vacation shots. Sifting through Lee's account, we gained insight into some of the EIC's talents that go beyond journalism and style: nail art.  

Lee and her ever-changing yet always-impressive manicures are currently giving us major #NailArtGoals. While she does get pampered every once in a while, a lot of her stunning looks are DIY, and she often includes useful instructions on how to get the look. So, if you're in search of some nail inspo in time for summer, this is the account to follow immediately — and prepare those fingers for plenty of double-taps. 

Get inspired by our favorite Michelle Lee manicures below, and shop some of the tools you'll need to achieve ultimate #NailArtGoals.
