Though they've been noticeably shorter for a few weeks now, it appears that Kylie Jenner's signature sparkling, spectacular claw-like talons are gone for good.
The youngest Kardasho-Jenner recently told People magazine (rather ironically at a launch for her King Kylie polish collection with SinfulColors), "I just sat down and looked at my nails and realized long nails were so weird looking on me." She continued, "I cut them off, and I don't think I'll ever go back. It was a trend, and I wanted to switch it up. I liked the natural look right now."
Said nails have been replaced by completely natural-looking, far inferior nails, which appear to be painted — this might hurt — plain white.
Below, some important moments in Kylie's clawlike talons, may they rest in peace.
