Kim Kardashian Inspired Nails

Kim Kardashian’s style is nothing short of insanely fabulous. Everything she touches seems to turn to gold. Flawless is her full-time job, and she knows how to work it. How does this woman do it?

It was confirmed that Kim reached billionaire status in April of this year, according to Forbes. Both her shapewear and beauty brand collections make it clear that she isn’t going to stop with her entrepreneurism anytime soon.

Kim Kardashian sets the trends, and we follow. Let’s take a peek at some of her famous looks and how we can capture just a bit of her charm for ourselves.

Claws Worth Craving

Jewelry isn’t the only accessory on Kim’s hands that steals the show. Her nails are equally scrutinized by all of her followers.

Kim Kardashian has set so many nail trends that we’ve literally lost count. Long styles, short ones, and everything in between—remember those gold nail piercings she had a few years ago? 

Kim can go glam in a nude nail and rock an onyx shade the next day. Seriously, this girl’s got game.

We may not have access to one of her famous nail artists like Kim Truong, but that doesn’t mean we can’t score Kim K’s polished look. Let’s walk through some nail styles that are inspired by none other than the queen, Kim Kardashian herself.

The Nude Nail

The nude nail is anything but basic. This shade goes with the flow of any wardrobe change you may encounter. It can rock a matte or a glossy finish. 

Always provide your nails with a foundational base coat before applying any color. This assures that your polish will not stain your nails and will give the paint something to adhere to.

Make sure to apply several coats of polish when you paint your nails with a nude shade. Nudes can tend to look uneven and streaky if they are not applied in multiple, thin layers. 

Allow each layer to dry before applying the next. Finish with a high gloss topcoat. Sometimes two applications of the topcoat are necessary to achieve a high-class luster.

A nude nail is great because it’s super chic and versatile. The shade can be worn during any season and at any time of the day, and it still looks put together.

The Inky Onyx Nail

Kim Kardashian rarely forgoes a nude nail, but when she does, a clean black slate is one on her list of go-tos.

Two coats of an inky black will do the trick, but make sure you follow with a high gloss topcoat for the classic Kardashian finish.

If you’re going for a more sophisticated vibe, choose a matte black. Matte colors have a flat finish. Matte black is on-trend and looks fantastic alone, without designs or shine. Matte is the bells and whistles.

The Muted Candy Nail

As of summer 2021, Kim K. likes long nails again, and they’re a muted green. This color can be rocked on a short or long nail and look totally fine either way; at least her army of fans thinks so. The world of candy-toned colors like this is wide. 

Apply a few coats of your fav candy shade and top it with a glossy top coat for a juicy summer vibe. 

The Fresh French Nail

You literally can’t ever go wrong with a classic French nail. The tip can be classic white, a whisper pink, or wild animal print.

Kim Kardashian chose to wear a killer French mani at her 40th birthday party last October. She sported a pale pink base with white tips and a short square shape. Let’s give a round of applause to Kim for pulling off another simple yet chic look.

This year, the French tip has a new variation. It's called the thin tip. This new nail style consists of a more thin-lined end of the nail rather than that of the original classic French.

Glitter gradients are also on-trend right now. A nude base with a glittery tip, feathering into an ombre effect, just up above the top of the nail is so hot.

Light Reflective Nails

Let your light shine with reflective chromatic colors. These colors cast lighted pigments, yielding a mirrored bling effect. 

Holographic colors and metallic shimmers will leave your nails shining like one of KK’s diamond rings...ok, well, not like her diamonds, but you get the idea. (wink)

Kim wore multiple metallic bronze shades during a photoshoot for her new fragrance, Metallic Hearts. It makes sense, considering the fragrance bottle shines in deep metallic gold.

Metallics are a celebrity fave this year. Make sure to keep your chromatic mani amped up with high octane shine. Stick with a glossy topcoat on top of any metallic or chrome polish. The shinier, the better! 

What Happens If You Don’t Want to Paint Your Nails?

OMG, you forgot to do your nails, and you don’t have time for the base coat, polish, and all of that nonsense. What now? Press-on nails are an easy, affordable, and fashionable fix.

Kim Kardashian showed her press-on nails to Katy Perry at the Met Gala in a photo that both turned heads and circulated on a Twitter fan account in 2018. Later, it was revealed that Katy Perry flew Kim’s nails to her from LA. Kim admitted in a replied tweet that the nails were glued on, and she had to show Katy. This proves that even celebrities rely on press-on nails at times.

The Press-On Nail

Press-on nails are artificial nails that are adhered to your natural nail with glue.

Press-ons are versatile and fun, not to mention simple to work with, so it’s no wonder they have become ultra-popular. Press-on nails can be applied in less time than it takes to complete a polished mani. 

Glamnetic has created fabulous nails that you’ll love. Did you know that a lot of our styles are actually celeb-inspired? Plus, our press-ons are vegan, cruelty-free, and made with recyclable packaging materials.

Breaking, bending, and paint chipping isn’t anything you’ll have to stress over because we have crafted our nails with high-quality materials. They are waterproof too, so you won’t have to worry when you head for the beach.

Glamnetic press-on nails are easily applied in two minutes and can be worn for up to two weeks. Each kit comes with 24 nails in a range of sizes so you can find your perfect fit. Take the nail quiz to determine which shape and length match your lifestyle.

Every nail kit includes:

  • Press-on nails 
  • Cuticle stick
  • Nail file
  • Alcohol prep pad
  • Nail glue

They are simple to apply. 

  1. Gently push back your cuticles.
  2. Wipe your nails with the alcohol pad to remove oils from your nails.
  3. File your nails to the desired length. 
  4. Apply a thin layer of glue all over your nail and on the press-on nail.
  5. Press on and hold for 10 seconds. Repeat for each nail.

Ta-da! That’s all there is to it.
