Kylie Jenner is in her short nails era. While Jenner has long been synonymous with extra-long manicures, it seems that she’s been in the mood to change up her signature look. In mid-October, Jenner shocked us all with her shortest, reddest mani ever, and she has continued to perfect the short-yet-bold fall mani, as seen in her latest Instagram post.
Jenner celebrated the debut of her forthcoming fashion line, Khy, with a dinner party for her nearest and dearest. She did so in pieces from the collection, but what we’re really laser-focused on is her manicure. The Kylie Cosmetics founder’s nails are much shorter than usual, shaped into a soft square and painted a darkly romantic deep black cherry hue to match her black leather outfit. For even more drama, Jenner posed for her Instagram pic with said black cherry manicure delicately cupping a perfect red rose.
Honestly, it’s still shocking to see Jenner with short nails, given that she’s opted for the ultra-long stiletto style for so long. (Her big sister Khloé Kardashian is still a firm supporter of Team Long Nails, though sister Kim switches sides often via press-on nails.) Then again, it does seem like we’re in a new Kylie era entirely, so swapping her long nails for a shorter set could simply be a sign that her style and overall vibe is changing. The color is ideal; a rich, smoldering deep black-burgundy is always on-trend for fall, and if a Kardashian-Jenner sister gives it her stamp of approval, it’s only going to get more popular from here.
Jenner finished off her night-out look with a subtle touch of brown eye shadow on her lids, fluffy lashes and flushed rose red cheeks. Her lips were lined and filled in with a light red color to match her blush, and her dark hair was styled in loose, tousled curls. Snow White who?
