Cardi B got an insane manicure with diamonds & real gemstones: love it or hate it?

Cardi B and Offset arrive to BOA after Baby Announcement at the BET Awards

We barely talked about Cardi B’s second pregnancy, which she revealed last week at the BET Awards. She performed with Migos and she had a sizeable baby-bump. Shortly after the performance, Cardi posted a NSFW pregnancy portrait confirming everything. I would guess that she’s due later this summer, or early autumn at the latest. It would be a little bit funny to me if she ended giving birth on the one-year anniversary of her divorce filing, which happened last September. She basically got back with Offset a month after filing for divorce because, as she said at the time, she missed the D. Nevermind that there are probably tons of men who would love to provide for her sexually. Deep sigh.

Anyway, now that everyone knows that she’s knocked up, Cardi has been taking it easy and getting absolutely insane manicures. Cardi has always loved long, acrylic nails and she spends a lot of money on her nails. But this is next-level. She got acrylics with literal diamonds and gems glued on, including what looks like a large, heart-shaped ruby and her name spelled out in diamonds. Note: it’s possible that some of these are Swarovski crystals. But some are definitely real stones. In any case, the manicure is completely insane.

    I could not wear these but I love them.

    • goofpuff says:

      Yes they are awesome to look at, but I can barely handle anything longer than super short trimmed (from playing piano and typing, long nails just don’t work well for me) so not for me!

      I mean if it makes people happy to have long nails, then more power to them. Its not like its hurting anyone (though they could be awesome weapons in a pinch lol) and its kept clean. I don’t know why anyone cares all that much to police people’s nails.

  2. Pao says:

    Yeah this is too much.

  3. jferber says:

    I think her hubby is pampering her and what the hell? If it makes her happy.

  4. psl says:

    Tacky, but what would I expect from Cardi B?

  5. Lauren says:

    Tacky AF, but I’m not the one that has to wear them.

  6. EnormousCoat says:

    I would like it more if she dumped her cheating husband via her manicure and then posted that. But if this is what she likes, she’s got the bucks to do it, so enjoy!

  7. Suri says:

    These are nice…but how on earth people get on with things like bathing etc…with these on? Are they detachable? Forgive me…I have zero knowlege about nails.

    • Cj says:

      Yes. I immediately wonder what happens if you need to poop…

      Not to mention open a can tab or anything but let’s be real, it’s the bathroom stuff that seems the most impossible because who’s gonna help with that?!

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      I’m assuming she has an assistant who wipes her butt for her and a nanny for the children.

  8. Aphra says:

    This is…. stupid, right?

  9. Sunny says:

    I hope she’s saving some of her money.

  10. Kazzzzz says:

    Tacky tacky tacky.

  11. Chimney says:

    Well she’s very rich woman and deserves nice things for putting up with Offset. I like them! Mind you she doesn’t have to do any chores in her house (“I don’t cook, I don’t clean”) so they probably last longer than they would on other people.

    At least she’s rich and has fun with her money unlike insanely rich people like grimes and elon musk who pretend they are normal while lecturing people about communism. Give me gauche any day!

  12. Stef says:

    It looks ridiculous! Tacky to a new level. Uh. Please make this stop!

    • Lady D says:

      I’m not a fan of those length of nails, but they make her happy and they’re not harming anyone, (although they do have the potential.) Let her wear what brings her joy.

  13. Snuffles says:

    I just don’t understand anyone can function with nails that long and clunky. I can’t even stand my nails getting even a little long. Mainly because it becomes difficult to type but I’m also prone to accidentally scratching myself.

  14. Leanne Cohn says:

    There is no way in hell she can wipe her own ass with those nails. I have had medium-length acrylics and wondered how women with nails that are any longer, deal with their personal hygiene.

  15. Leena says:

    She must have a bidet.

  16. Greta G says:

    Let’s hope she ( & everyone else who has these type of nails) has a bidet.

  17. Stacy Dresden says:

    I don’t like those, way too much going on

  18. SpankyB says:

    I’d poke my eye out with those. A bit over the top, just like Cardi.

    I’m not a fan of the pointy nail but I do like the black and white polka dots in the other photos.

  19. SarahCS says:

    How does she do ANYTHING???

    That’s as far as I’m going to go with this story.

  20. Mimi says:

    How could u function in everyday life with those nails? Lol but whatever I love cardi b she’s a boss

  21. SKE says:

    Love Cardi but this manicure probably cost twice my mortgage, is incompatible with any aspect of living a human life, and is a$$-ugly to boot. Whyyyyyyyyyy.

  22. VIV says:

    I want to know how heavy they are. Like in the grand scheme of weight it’s probably not much but at the end of your fingers depending on the materials used it seems like it would be a lot!

  23. eliza james says:

    Those 2 need a better financial advisor.

  25. Bread and Circuses says:

    Er… If you spend that much on your nails, they should not wind up looking like someone glued keychains to them.

    I mean, I’ve seen some outrageous bejewelled nails that looked fantastic. These are not them.

  26. Amando says:

    I think super long nails are tacky, but those take the cake.
