Signed with the Wall Group, she works with many of your favorite celebrities. But which celebs, you may ask? They are certainly all your faves, with manicures featured in all different types of magazines, advertisements, red carpets, performances, and award shows.

Let’s check out all the different nail looks she’s done, from various nail shapes, colors, designs, and patterns.


High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens frequently gets her nails done by Zola. In this photo, Vanessa attends the 2023 Oscars Awards wearing a monochromatic black-and-white look. She paired her vintage Chanel dress with a black-and-white swirled French tip divided down the middle. Besides the Oscars, Vanessa and Zola have collaborated for various occasions, including the 2024 Oscars, her wedding, a photoshoot with KnowBeauty, and the front cover of a magazine, Nylon’s It Girl issue.

Ariana Greenblatt

Ariana Greenblatt, an American actress known for her roles in Disney Channel’s Stuck in the Middle and the Barbie movie, had her manicure done by Zola for the movie premiere. Zola did a light pale pink shimmer nail look in addition to the pearly bow on top.

Outer Banks star Madeline Cline paired her classy yellow dress for the 2023 VMA’s with a neutral almond French tip.

On top of that, she was on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine, where she wore a chromatic silver manicure.


Kendall Jenner has collaborated with Zola for Vanity Fair, the Academy Gala, an ad for Gucci alongside Bad Bunny, and a Jimmy Choo commercial. When she wants a manicure just for herself, Zola is her go-to. Kendall opts for many neutral looks, including French tips, nude shades, and light pinks, with a nail shape that’s not too long. Aside from the classy neutral nails, Kendall also likes experimenting with her nails. On her vacation to Hawaii, she sported a colorful nail look, which included red, black, and pale yellow.

Then, for the release of her Gloss Drip, Jenner posed with an ice pop featuring the new lippie release, with a pale baby pink square-shaped nail. She has also previously been Kylie’s client for vacation nails, blush nails, and a bright cherry red for the summer.


Glazed donut nails and glowy skin; the founder of Rhode Skincare, Hailey Bieber, has been featured on Zola’s Instagram many times for Rhode campaigns and video shoots.

Bend and Snap! Especially if you just got your nails freshly manicured. From The White Lotus to A Cinderella Story and Legally Blonde, Zola got to work with the iconic actress. Jennifer Coolidge was featured in Interview Magazine, and she paired her 14k-carat gold nail look popping out of her black gloves.

While I can’t speak for everyone, I find nailsbyzola pretty cool. Working with so many celebrities and creating different nail looks is truly a form of art that requires a lot of talent. I’m excited to see what celebrities she works with in the future!
