As any beauty-obsessed human knows, body jewelry is a unique — and pretty badass way — to express yourself. Earlier on Tuesday, Kylie Jenner Instagrammed two advertisements for her lip kits that featured septum rings, and they look so cool.
For those of you who aren't familiar, a septum ring is a small hoop or chain in the center of your nose, right between your nostrils. You can get the cartilage pierced (which some tattoo artists describe as "feeling like a sneeze") or you can go the temporary route and get a clip-on version. Celebrities like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Jessica Biel have all rocked septum piercings — some real, some faux — and contributed to the growing trend. Unlike tattoos, septum piercings aren't permanent and don't leave behind much evidence or scarring if you decide to take them out.
Jenner's Instagram photos featured two decorative septum rings — one paired with Mary Jo K lipstick and the other with Posie K. When set against these deep shades, the contrast really makes the delicate jewelry pop. While it's not Jenner herself in the pictures, we can totally see the most beauty-experimental Kardashian trying out the look for herself.
The first ring is a gold, double layered hoop, paired with Mary Jo K:
And the second is silver and adorned with tiny pink jewels, paired with Posie K:
They're so cool, right?! Here are seven options to try out if you want to achieve this badass beauty look — some just are temporary, and some are for those of you who want to take the plunge and go for the piercing.
