To celebrate her daughter, Kulture's, second birthday, Cardi B went all-out and got them matching gold anklets, watches, and rainbow Ugg slippers — because, well, she can. To make the occasion even more glamorous, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper also got a larger-than-life crystal manicure, courtesy of her go-to nail girl, Jenny Bui, whose salon, Nails on 7th in New York City, recently reopened with new safety and hygiene measures in place to protect customers. It's clear Bui hasn't lost her touch one bit since she hasn't been seeing clients because of the pandemic, considering this is one of the coolest nail looks we've seen in a minute.
The singer showed off her next-level nails on Friday in a precious Instagram post with Kulture. Bui worked her magic by using different shades of blue Swavorski crystals to create a super-cool ombré effect on the nails with a deep sapphire color near Cardi B's cuticles and a clear iridescent shade on the tips. The Hustlers star also went for an ultra-pointy shape and super-duper long nails, which tends to be her preferred style.

This is far from the first time we've seen the singer wear crystals on her nails, but it very well might be one of our favorite looks. For those who don't know, Bui actually works with Swavorski as a nail artist, so it's no wonder she's always giving Cardi B sparkly digits.
Of course, fans are equally obsessed with the manicure, leaving comments like, "These nails are so beautiful 😍" and "Get Kulture a manicure with matching polish as you, that’d be SO CUTE 😍🤩."
It's also worth noting that the singer-songwriter debuted pastel pink hair later in the day for Kulture's birthday party, which was LOL Doll-themed. She even had LOL dolls made to look like herself and Kulture and showed them off on Instagram with the caption, "Us right now." Sure enough, the Cardi doll has pink hair as well as the same long, ombré-blue nails.
Now that Nails on 7th reopened, we can't wait to see the nail looks Cardi B comes out with next.
