Kim Kardashian has had a triumphant return to social media, now regularly updating her Snapchat and Instagram with photos of her life.

One thing she often shares is her glam routine, and a certain set of elaborate nails really caught our attention recently.

The star uploaded a video showing off her freshly pierced nails, each complete with two or three gold hoops.

The pierced nail look definitely isn't new, but Kim's extreme take on the style is pretty note worthy.

The reality TV queen has been a little obsessed with piercing lately, regularly wearing a fake diamond hoop on her lower lip. 

However, we can't help but think of all the things that would suddenly be a major struggle if we adorned our finger tips with jingly hoops.

Buttoning up a shirt would be extremely inconvenient, as would running your fingers through your hair or applying fake eyelashes.

And there's no way you would be able to do something finicky like put in actual hoop earrings.

While the look is pretty cool for a fashion show or a photo shoot, it might not be all that practical for real life.

However, some of the pierced nail looks dotted around Instagram showcase a more subtle take on the trend, one that we could consider getting behind.

Although some of them remind us of those phone charms everyone used to add to their old Nokias, the look is cute if impractical.

Here's a few of our faves.
