I recently had the pleasure of getting my nails did by the top artist in New Jersey, Billy Nguyen, aka @billy820nails on Instagram. 88,000 followers can’t be wrong, so I knew I was in good hands with Billy. He’s been doing nails for 18 years (although he doesn’t look it!), and has been all over, from California to Florida, but he now calls New Jersey home, and we are sure glad he does.

Billy is known for his impeccable nail art design, which he also teaches all across the country. From intricateĀ florals, to aztec prints, and stunning marble designs, you name it, Billy can do it. His home base is at Fine Touch Nails in Hackensack, but don’t plan on just walking in to see him. You must book an appointment, and right now the wait is 4 weeks, yes that’s how good he is.

Watch below to see Billy in action, turning my drab, boring nails, into a work of art.

And after you are done, scroll below to seeĀ more of his stunning designs. Also don’t forget to follow him on Instagram, he’ll be giving you lots of major nail envy.

Here I am getting ready to go into the salon for the first time:

After choosing a color together, Billy quickly got to work:
