Between our nonstop hand sanitizing and the ill-fated at home manicures it is THE time now to greatly appreciate the value of professional nail art. And we are not talking about your basic kawaii shit. Instead our minds were beyond blown by the work of Sojin Oh aka SojiNails.

The LA based polymathic nail artist takes a cerebral approach to her work combing the worlds sublime natural peculiarities to that of experimental gastronomy to bring otherworldly nail creations that are also packed with a heavy dose of humor. As of late her esoteric nails can be seen on a host of edgy tastemakers from Kali Uchis, Kelsey Lu, Rina Sawayama, HANA, Lil Miquela, Tinashe, Sophie, Chloe and Halle, Princess Gollum, and most recently Kim Kardashian for her Skims campaign.

With this growing popularity she launched her collaborative CBD product with Spill Botanicals titled MANIfest multifunctional hand and cuticle oil. The lightweight oil was formulated to aid with hard to soften brittle, over sanitized cuticles and hands. With a mix of 100 mg CBD, calendula and green tea, the anti-microbial oil leaves your hands and nails feeling supple and refreshed. But it is the scent with notes of Japanese Hinoki that might make you wanna dump it all over your bod. Below we compiled our top picks of Sojin’s most epic nail designs and their accompanying inspirations
