Kim Kardashian isn't all that flashy when it comes to manicures. No, really. Perhaps it's guilt by association, but compared to most of her sisters, she keeps things pretty low-key. Sure, she usually jumps back to longer-than-average nails when she's sported short ones for a while, but more often than not, she sticks to classic colors and go-with-everything neutrals. And that means that her manicures are easily mimicked — especially when you know which nail polish she's wearing.
Now, typically, when we tell you what went into a celebrity manicure, it's not instantly accessible. It often involves a medium that takes expert skills to apply, like acrylic powder or custom tips. But every now and then, a celebrity's go-to nail artist will use something we can all feel confident applying and feel comfortable buying. Such is the case with Kardashian's latest manicure.
Kardashian attended the Baby2Baby Gala over the weekend — one of many famous folks invited to the fancy and philanthropic event. She wore a beautiful Balenciaga dress with black lace details and a matching satin bow at the waist. She went with an almost wet-look version of water waves on her long, middle-parted hair, and her makeup was predominantly shades of tan and beige.
The beige carried over into her nails, which were shaped into a long coffin shape. And the polish nail artist Brittney Boyce used? Essie Gel Couture in Fairy Tailor. For the uninitiated, it only looks and lasts like gel polish — no UV or LED lamp needed.

"We wanted to go with a perfect milky-sheer neutral shade that would complement the length and shape of Kim’s nails,” Boyce said in a press release.
The manicure is as pretty as it is versatile — and perhaps the only time we'll ever be able to get Kardashian's exact look for $13.
