Kim Kardashian's Most Recent Mani Proves Press-Ons Are Chic as Hell

If there's one thing that the Kardashian sisters are always serving major inspiration for, it's their nails. At the Baby2Baby Gala on Sunday, Kim Kardashian showed up with razor-sharp pointed French tips to be honored with the Giving Tree Award for her service to children in need. 

In fact, these long nails were more reminiscent of her sister Khloé, with fans even joking that Khloé must have held Kim down for the mani. Khloé recently revealed on Keeping Up With the Kardashians that it's in her will to get her nails done once a week if she's ever in a coma, but Kim is typically more low-key and often sports shorter nails.

But don't worry. This isn't Invasion of the Body Snatchers—Kim and Khloé didn't switch places for the night. Instead, Kim's pointy manicure was actually made up of custom-painted press-on nails, which she was able to take off shortly after her appearance.

With a baby-pink base and angular white tip, these nails matched Kim's entire Barbiecore vibe flawlessly. Kim wore head-to-toe hot-pink Balenciaga, complete with a mini croc bag and rose-toned jewelry. Her makeup was kept neutral, and her hair was out of her face. For this glam, the nails really stole the show.
