Kim Kardashian Gets Her Nails Did and Dodges the Rain (PHOTOS)

The recent rain in Los Angeles is a nuisance to everyone — especially Kim Kardashian.

With her hair in a bun and her nails freshly manicured, Kim K. made a mad dash for her Range Rover after a trip to the nail salon on Wednesday. As the drops of rain fell downward, Kim made a makeshift umbrella out of a bright orange shopping bag, protecting her tightly-wound ‘do from any excess moisture. She also traded in her sky-high Louboutins for a pair of flip-flops before exiting the salon, which is smart on several fronts considering she just got her toes painted.

Wednesday was an emotional day for Kim, who took to her blog to pen a tribute following the sad death of Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor. “This year, one of the greatest highlights of my entire life was when I was asked to remake Cleopatra for Harper’s Bazaar magazine in a fashion shoot. Not only did I get to wear Dame Elizabeth’s original clothing from the movie, but I got to interview her for this piece! I never felt so lucky and fortunate; it was truly the greatest honor and dream of mine to be the iconic “Elizabeth Taylor” for one day!” Kim wrote.
