Nail Art Superstar: Amber-Elizabeth Stores


photo by William Lords

If you love nail art as much as we do, you’ll be excited by Amber-Elizabeth Stores’ creations. The New York City–based nail artist—and author of the book Glam Nail Studio—counts gels, acrylics, rhinestones, and airbrushing among her many specialties. And her aesthetic range is just as varied, from intricate graphic designs to classic chic manis that are right at home in high-end fashion editorials. Her work has appeared Vogue Italia, BlackBook, Marie Claire, POP, and Elle and she’s collaborated with Jason Wu, Alexander Wang, Betsey Johnson, Vena Cava, and other top designers. A resident manicurist at Paintbox Nail Studio in New York City, Stores has also painted the tips of celebrity A-listers like Nicki Minaj, Florence Welch, Ashley Greene, and Selita Ebanks. 

Check out some of our favorite examples of Stores’ work below, and follow her on Instagram @Amberdoesnails and Beautylish here for more photos of her gorgeous nail art.
