Insta-Stalking: Tom Bachik, Nail-Art Ninja

Photo: via @tombachik.
Anyone who has ever said nail polish is a girl's game must not be familiar with Tom Bachik. The self-described man-icurist is the face (and polish bottle) behind some of Hollywood's best nail-art looks. Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Lopez — Bachik knows his way around a pair of paws. His designs are always intricate, fun, and totally envy-inducing.
Lucky for us, Bachik is incredibly active on Instagram. The guy shares behind-the-scenes snaps of his in-progress designs and some of the newest polish shades to hit the market. There's also a healthy dose of humor in there, too, because who doesn't love a laugh with their manicure?
