It's no secret that Kendall Jenner is a trendsetter – from that cut-out wedding guest dress (which quite literally broke the internet), to her and Kim Kardashian's contrasting Met Gala getups. It's no wonder then, that she's even leading the way when it comes to manicures, and her latest nail look has found itself at the top of our list of trends to try in 2022.

Taking to her Instagram Story this week, the 26-year-old showed off a tortoiseshell tip mani created by celebrity nail artist Lisa Kon. "Tortoise by @lisa_kon_" she wrote in the caption, alongside an elegant photo of her freshly painted nails.

Over on her own Instagram, Lisa also shared a series of photos showing off the mani along with details on how she achieved what we're calling: a work of art. "To celebrate Christmas this year @kendalljenner made a French tortoise tip," she told her 88.9 k followers. "This nail design was a perfect match for her stunningly dramatic black dress from Carolina Herrera," she added, referencing the model's impressive Christmas gown which she shared a photo of on her feed.

Kendall's mani is a sign of things to come in 2022, with tortoiseshell set for a big revival. The brown-toned print very much had a moment in the early 2010s, and its comeback is well overdue, with plenty of stylists predicting it'll be everywhere and on everything as we head further into the 2020s.

It's a yes from us! 🐢
