Susi Kenna gets crafty with her nail art. The social media director covers her nails in miniature works of art inspired by everyone from Pablo Picasso to Keith Haring.

Kenna, who works in the art world and serves as co-chair of the Junior Associates of the MoMA, uses her extensive knowledge of art to help design each set of nails. After deciding what artwork she wants to recreate next, it takes about 24 hours to create the design. Next, she finds a qualified nail artist to handpaint the creation.

You can check out all of Kenna's manicures on her blog, Nail Art History.
