Kendall Jenner's Tortoise Shell Mani Is Serving Major 2022 Nail Inspo

Copying this ASAP.

If you need unique French manicure inspiration, Kendall Jenner's tortoise shell nails are here.

French manicures have made a major comeback over the last year. Modern twists on the manicure — like fun shades, mix-n-match tips, or abstract lines — are more popular than ever, largely thanks to celebs like Beyoncé and Selena Gomez, who tapped nail artists that remixed the classic design in 2021 in fresh ways. The latest star to turn you on to the trend? Kendall Jenner.

After celebrating the holidays in typical KarJenner fashion (Met Gala-worthy gowns, halls fully decked out), Jenner took to her Instagram stories on Monday, December 27 to show off her holiday look — including her fresh digits. In the pic, Jenner shouted out the design and artist behind it. Celebrity manicurist Lisa Kon, whose celebrity roster includes Zendaya and Selling Sunset’s Christine Quinn, kept it simple and painted Jenner’s nail beds with a pink-ish neutral hue. The simple base let the model’s French tips take center stage. They’re reminiscent of the tortoise-inspired mani that big sis Kim Kardashian wore while vacationing in Italy earlier this year.

Kon shared more info on Jenner’s new French manicure and holiday style on her Instagram page. There, Kon revealed she used Lisa Kon shades — coffee, black, beach mood, mustard yellow, and builder gel in 07 (Jenner’s favorite) — to create Jenner’s winter tips. And later, she shared that Jenner’s new French mani was inspired by the hourglass shape of the black Carolina Herrera dress that the model wore for the festive occasion.
