Everyone knows that the Kardashians are fashion icons in their own right. Love them or hate them, the entire family has made waves in the fashion and beauty industry for years. From their clothing lines to their endless beauty campaigns, from Kylie Jenner’s billion dollars Kylie Cosmetics line to Kim Kardashian’s KKW beauty brand—even with all those haters, they’re still laughing to the bank. One of the biggest tools that the Kardashian/Jenner family has on their side is social media. The sisters use Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat to stay connected with fans and follows and blur that “wall” between regular people and celebrities.
Recently, Khloé Kardashian shared a photo of her new nails she had just got done, in a poppin’ bright red. KoKo is well known for having long claws. Personally, I hate long nails—but, that’s because I will stab myself in the eye because I’m a klutz. Khloé, on the other hand, has had long nails for years. Therefore, she’s had tons of practice of using her hands with these bad boys.
Immediately after posting her fresh mani online, Khloé started getting major hate from women and mothers online who claim it’s impossible to change her daughter, True’s, diapers with those long nails.
Obviously, it’s considered mom-shaming to drag the woman for enjoying her nails long—claiming she can’t care for True with those nails. That’s a load of sh*t. Sure, I may not like my nails long, but that doesn’t mean that women who do like their nails long are bad mothers. In fact, Khloé has been open about how hands-on she has been with True—seeing as she’s struggled for years trying to get pregnant. Having True, for her, is a true blessing. Therefore, she wasn’t going to let anyone drag her and the way she cares for her daughter.
Khloé posted on Twitter that she “manages just fine.” And, that she believes there are more serious things to discuss over whether or not she can change a diaper with those nails.
It’s annoying when people talk about my nails. Trust me, I manage just fine. The same way I take care of myself, I take care of my baby. There are more serious things to discuss. At least I would hope. ???? happy Monday to you— Khloé (@khloekardashian) February 18, 2019
And, many people had Khloé’s back on this one.

My favorite is when people say they scratch or hurt the baby. fr go scratch yourself with an acrylic nail then again with your childs tiny knives for fingernails. One hurts wayyy worse and it’s not the acrylic one! ????????????♀️— Tayler Marie (@tayler_mariej) February 19, 2019
I genuinely wonder what it’s like to have NOTHING else to worry about besides the length of someone’s nails— Personal Pam Pizza (@killagrampam) February 18, 2019
You're an awesome Mom no matter what to True, with or without the nails. People need to get a life.— Kimilia Clarke (@kimkielseo) February 18, 2019
