8 Tips For Getting the Perfect Photo of Your Nails (#Nailfie) For Instagram

Selfies are everywhere, as are OOTD posts. But nail of the day posts (or "nailfies") have taken over Instagram this year and for good reason. Nailfies are, seemingly, not as vain, since they don't include your face and instead show off your new manicure in a stylish way.

I noticed that my nailfie photos had evolved over time: I would paint my nails to perfection, only to muddle the picture by putting my hand in a "claw" pose, turning a work of art into a heinous photograph. (Clearly I've lost sleep over this at night.) So after taking over 100 photos of my manicures, I've come up with some tips to make your nailfies look chic, clean, and manicured! Check out the tips in the video and let me know yours in the comment section!
