Zendaya’s notorious long, pointy nails have been taken off for winter vacation and replaced with a short white manicure. Should she keep them short or do you miss her claws?

From different patterns, shapes, and colors to a simple white, Zendaya, 17, has gone through a total nail transformation! The star posted a picture on Instagram on Dec. 19, saying, “Stuck with short nails for one more day!! Ugh the struggle!! #iwantmyclawsback,” but do you agree? Or do you think the short nails is a nice change?

Zendaya’s Claw Nails — Switches To Short

Although this short look on Zendaya is only temporary, do you think she should keep it? Since her nails are usually very busy looking and long, the short and simple nails are a change of pace, especially with such a great color painted on them!


To get a look similar to Zendaya’s short nails, try Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Like A Virgin. This shade is perfect to achieve that solid white look.

Although most people associate white nails with summer, it is also a great winter shade because it resembles a majestic, snowy wonderland.

Love It Long

Though Zendaya said she would be getting her claws back on Dec. 20, maybe she had a change of heart because in another pic she posted on Dec. 25, she was still rocking the short, white nails!

What pattern do you want to see next? We have seen some pretty expressive ideas before, but do you have any recommendations for Zendaya’s next claw look?

Are you loving Zenday’s short and simple nails or do you miss her creative claws, HollywoodLifers?
