Cardi B takes a maximalist approach to nail art and isn’t afraid to try new trends, like the polarizing duck-feet nails TikTok keeps talking about. If you follow Cardi B on social media, you’re no stranger to her debuting new designs on Instagram Stories or posting a photo of blinged-out, long acrylics with a tag to Nails on 7th.
Jenny Bui, owner of Nails on 7th, is the self-proclaimed Queen of Bling and the famed mastermind behind most of the star’s mind-blowing manicures. Cardi B has been with Bui since the beginning, getting her first set from the Cambodian nail artist in 2013, when the rapper was 20 years old. She’s been obsessed ever since. “She loved it,” Bui previously told POPSUGAR. “She screamed, ‘Oh my God. In my whole life, I never had a nail like this.’ And then after that, she kept coming to me.”
The two have formed a special relationship that allows them to sit through hours of detailed designs. Longtime Cardi B fans will remember Bui’s elaborate birthday surprise for the rapper that led to the viral quote, “Your nail lady don’t love you like my nail lady love me.”
You’d be hard-pressed to find Cardi B without her nails done — seriously, she even showed a fan how to change a diaper with long nails — which makes it easy to round up 10 of Cardi B’s best nail looks over the years.
