Everybody has regrets in life, and the mega rich aren’t that different.
Their regrets are different — probably having less to do with how they spent money — but even Kim Kardashian thinks about how she could have done things differently in the past to bring about a different future.
Kim says that she has one big regret … and it’s about her engagement to Kanye West. And whatever you might be thinking … this will surprise you.
Kim Kardashian appeared as a guest on makeup artist Patrick Starrr’s YouTube channel.
(Note: yes, those are three Rs. Patrick Starr, the pink starfish from Spongebob Squarepants, has but two Rs in his last name)
Obviously, Kim doesn’t need all many pointers for her makeup — she’s kind of known for her contouring and stuff.
But that’s more or less the point.
She made this guest appearance so that Pat Starrr could use her products on her — her Kim Kardashian West Beauty contouring products.
All on camera, of course.
It’s basically a mutually beneficial commercial.
Kim Kardashian’s done her own makeup tutorials before for this exact same purpose.
But she can widen her audience among people who are serious about makeup (rather than simply her fans) by buddying up with Pat Starrr.
Pat Starrr, in the mean time, gets a nice viewership boost.
And, you know, good for them — though we have to wonder how much more money Kim could possibly want to make at this point.
But they talk in the video, obviously, and Kim speaks up about her biggest Instagram regret.
Kim Kardashian says that one thing that she doesn’t like about her body is her fingernails.
“I hate my hands,” she says.
She notes, in particular, that all of her sisters have longer fingernails than she does.
“One of my biggest photo regrets is like when I got engaged, and I had the shortest nails when I showed my picture.”
As you can see in that photo, her nails were very short.
They’re shiny enough that she was definitely wearing some sort of polish.
They don’t get that degree of luster just from buffing, believe us.
“And I was like, ‘Ugh, it would have looked so much better with long nails.’”
First of all, all eyes were on that ring, Kim.
Nobody was like “whoa weird photo Kim shared of her scandalously short nails … gee that’s a big ring … oh wow congrats!”
(For best results, imagine that hypothetical line in a ’90s surfer dude accent)
Second of all, though … she’s right.
Longer nails do look good.
Not, like, the nails that look ultra fake or start to curve like claws (and tend to be fake).
Those can be great with Halloween costumes.
They make your fingers look longer and feel longer and you feel like your every gesture and action is a little more imperious in a way that’s hard to explain.
But even slightly longer nails can have that effect.
The fact of the matter is that, if Kim Kardashian’s biggest regret — even her biggest regret specific to Instagram — has to do with the length of her fingernails, then she’s lived an enviable life.
We already knew that.
After all of Kanye’s antics and worrisome behavior and his effect on her career, we’d think that she’d have other regrets when it comes to her engagement.
Though we can understand why she wouldn’t voice those while getting her face contoured.
