You may think you don’t know nail artist Madeline Poole, but we can guarantee you’ve seen the LA-based manicurist’s handiwork within the past year—whether you meant to or not. She was the mastermind behind Kelly Osbourne’s killer digits for FAULT’s fall cover shoot (among many, many others!), the gal who created all those dope American Apparel nail tutorials, the genius behind Nasty Gal’s campaigns, and has done so many celebs’ nails we can barely even keep track (our faves? Ke$ha and Kreayshawn). Even if you don’t follow fashion mags, you might’ve also spotted her name in Sephora thanks to The New Black x Madeline Poole nail art kits. (Psst: We’ve even showcased her work right here on the blog!) Believe it or not, Madeline has even more amazingness up her sleeve—she’s releasing a book which gives step-by-step instructions on how to complete all her signature designs this spring. YASSS.

Nails, Nails, Nails! (which is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com) takes us through 25 of her breathtaking designs, which include glitter stained glass, outlines, gradients, half moons, two-tone triangles, quadruple colors, glitter foil, and leopard print (peep them all above!). According to the product description, the book “presents professional nail art techniques and all the important tools, plus simple instructions, step-by-step photos, and fabulous shots of the finished nails make it easy for readers to replicate the designs.” Ohhhh, mama LIKE. Unfortunately we have to wait until April 30 to get our hands on this bad boy, but we’ll certainly be peeping her Tumblr for inspiration until then!
