The big debate over whether short versus long nails would come first in 2022 is still ongoing, with no clear winner. Earlier this year, we watched celebrities like Rihanna and Kylie Jenner — known for long manicures — abandon them for shorter nails that look just as good. Although some stars eventually returned to their longer peaks, it looks like you can’t see anything Kim Kardashian with long nails pretty much never again. Her reasoning is simple: “I can’t do long nails,” she shared during a question-and-answer session Curls offices on Tuesday.
On June 21st, the Kardashians star sat down with Editor-in-Chief Jessica Cruel to talk about her work as a criminal justice attorney, her love of neutral colors at home, the time she stole a brown Revlon lipstick when she was 11 with Nicole Richie by her side, and more to speak more. Though we’ve seen the Kardashian sport more than a few long manicures over the years, it’s more of an illusion than anything. “They’re usually just put on for a shoot or for the night,” she said.
Occasionally, the reality TV star indulges in the longer tips that make her feel like the baddest woman alive — who doesn’t get a confidence boost from a long manicure set? “Once in a while I get [long nails] for the holidays [and] I have a very different attitude,” she noted.
