Are The Kardashian's Nails Real or Acrylic?
There are tons of trends that the Kardashian and Jenner ladies have inspired. Whether it's slick back ponytails or over lined lips, the ladies' beauty routines are practically legendary at this point, but what about their nails? Are the Kardashian's nails real or are they acrylic? While some of the ladies most obviously get acrylics filled in on the regular, others rock more subtle looks that lead to confusion over whether or not their nails are their own. While I definitely want to get to the bottom of their style, regardless of acrylics or no, we all can agree that the Kardashian and Jenner beauty game is always on point.
While acrylics have gotten a bad rep for being harsh on your natural nails, they're nonetheless mega popular, thanks to stars like the Kardashians, Rihanna, and Beyonce. If you've chosen to go forward with acrylics, there are tons of great tips on how to keep your nails in great shape so that your costly acrylic manicure stays looking fab.
If you love them and feel ashamed, don't be — tons of girls with acrylics wear them loud and proud, and so should you! It seems as if many of the Kardashian-Jenner ladies have chosen to do just that. Kylie Jenner's nails are almost as famous as her lips — OK, not really but kind of — and she's made no secret about the fact that they're acrylic and who does them for her.
Let's run down all the ladies' nails and determine their routines, shall we?
So Kylie's nails are clearly acrylic, and she's made no bones about the fact that talented nail artist Britney Tokyo is responsible for them.
Jenner's nails typically retain their long length, but color and pattern is constantly evolving.
Kendall's nails are a bit harder to *ahem* nail down. Their length isn not excessive, and she tends to keep them well manicured but not colorful. This is probably due to her high fashion catwalk gigs.
Basically, the jury is still out on Kendall. If they are acrylic, they're short and neutral. If they're real, her manicurist is a genius.
Much like little sister Kylie, Kim seems to go for longer and brighter nails. Whether they're bright white or bold burgundy, she definitely is rocking acrylics. In fact, one of the writers over at New York Magazine spent a weekend with Kim's nails
Right now, it looks like we're 2-1 in favor of acrylics.
Khloe is definitely also rocking the acrylics. Her nails are always on point. In fact, she and sister Kylie sometimes coincide when it comes to nail looks.
It seems like acrylics are the dominant style for the ladies.
I'm going to go ahead and say that Kourtney's nails are well manicured, but definitely her own. They're very natural looking, as a mom, it makes sense for her not to rock an acrylic that Mason or Penelope could potentially damage.
Queen of the Kardashian/Jenners and momager extraordinaire, Kris Jenner, simply has no time for acrylics. She's too busy putting out fires and making sure all of her daughters are killing it — which she has done super duper well.
Even if they aren't acrylic nails, Jenner definitely makes a point to keep them well manicured and painted.
For a call on Kardashian/Jenner nails, I'm going to put the score at an even 3-3. Whether you want to keep your own or opt for faux nails, one thing's for sure if you're looking to emulate their beauty routine: It's time to book an appointment with your nail technician. The Kardashian/Jenner clan would never be caught dead without a fresh manicure.
