Looks like Kourtney Kardashian has a new go-to manicure. On Aug. 11, the reality star shared a photo of her freshly painted supermodel nails — yep, the same subtle pink nail look she had when she married Travis Barker in May. However, this time around, Kardashian displayed the minimalist trend on her natural nails, rather than almond-shaped extensions.
“I cut all my nails off and now my little baby nails are back,” she wrote on Instagram Stories, tagging Los Angeles-based manicurists Kim Truong and Diem Truong, who’ve worked with the Kardashian sisters numerous times in the past.
Decidedly more low-key than other nail trends in the spotlight this year (we’re looking at you, swirl nails and chrome manicures), supermodel nails are characterized by a simple sheer-pink base color, cleaned-up nail beds, and a lack of additional designs or embellishments. They’re the perfect option for brides, “clean-girl” aesthetic enthusiasts, or anyone who prefers to let their outfit be the center of attention sans distractions. Plus, supermodel nails already have the seal of approval from tons of celebrities, including Zendaya, Ciara, Jennifer Lopez, and Ana de Armas, so what’s not to love?
Kardashian is always experimenting with her nail looks. Earlier in the week, the mother of three opted for an all-black manicure while enjoying a lakeside family vacation with Barker and several of their kids. Last month, she switched things up with a Christian Louboutin-esque “flipside” manicure featuring nails that were neutral on top and red on the underside. And let’s not forget her and Barker’s matching initialed manis at the 2022 Met Gala.
