There are so many different nail trends that have been circling. Square nails, round nails, squoval nails, oval nails, almond nails, stiletto nails, ballerina nails, lipstick nails, edge nails, arrowhead nails, mountain peak nails, whatever your heart desires! But maybe not these trends.
One icon with the most iconic nails is rapper Cardi B. Cardi’s nail manicurist is Bui. Now, Bui doesn't do just anyone, but she had heard about Cardi's sense of humor and growing social reach, so she took her on as a client. Now, she refuses to let anyone else do the star's nails. "She trusts me, creatively," Bui says. She states that the rapper's normal request is "do whatever you want."
Bui doesn't like to talk price, as said in a Vogue article, but she did give a jumping off point. "I will say that they run $80 and up," she says. As for the number of crystals, Bui can't really put a number on that, either. "I can never count! There are hundreds and hundreds," she says. "That's how she likes it."
It’s no secret that Cardi’s nails are glamorously ridiculous, but what are some of the ways you yourself can be extra? Here are some crazy and weird nail trends.
1. Bubble Nails. Who even thought this was a good idea? It’s just a waste of nail polish and time. Highly recommend you not to even attempt this.
2. Snow Globe Nails. Much like the bubble nails but 10 times extra.
3. Flare Nails. Seriously who thought this was okay. It’s literally duck feet on your fingers. Sisters, please stay away from the flare nail shape!
4. Succulent Nails. People are actually sticking live plants on their nails! Plants are friends NOT nail art!
5. Vampire Fang Nails. We get it you like Halloween. This is not only terrifying but dangerous as stiletto nails should basically be classified as a weapon.
6. Fur Nails. Vegans must hate these.
7. Icicle Nails. Honey, you’re not Elsa. Sit down and let it go.
8. Jeweled Nails. Unless you’re Cardi B you might want to hold off on all of the expensive glitz and glam. Too much, too much, too much! There is too much going on.
