Cardi B, Kylie Jenner, and other celebrity moms with long and heavily ornamented nails come under fire
Backlashes on long 'claws' for celeb-mothers make fans believe that celebrities who are not moms should stick to setting the Instagram nail trend
What's popping this spring on Instagram is the raging and ever-changing nail trends. March itself witnessed celebrities flaunting long colorful nails, often heavily ornamented. Supermodel Kendall Jenner and Ariana Grande made the cow print nails an "it" of the season, as both spotted the black and white printed nails earlier in March. While these immediately took off and became so "vogue," nail art has actually misfired.
How? Talk to celebrity moms including Cardi B and Kylie Jenner, whose nail art promotions backfired. While Kendall Jenner and Ariana Grande's cow print got it kicking, Cardi B's heavily ornamented nails and Kylie Jenner's ever-changing "favorites", have fans speculating how do the celebrity moms manage to take care of their babies with such elongated claws.
When the lipkit mogul posted a picture with baby Stormi, exhibiting her baby pink long nails while tenderly holding her daughter, fans commented how dangerous it is for the child to be held by her. The picture boasting over 9,000,000 likes, had comments such as "Poor Stormi. I bet she has all over her tiny body bruises and scars from her mother’s witch nails." Another wrote, "how do you look after her with those nails?"
Cardi B's baby posts are met with similar comments. When the rapper posted a video of her baby Kulture being swayed to one of her singles by the nanny, fans were quick to spot how the nanny had well-trimmed nails, but the mother herself has long "claws". The video was taken down, but comments still persist on many of the 'Bodak Yellow' rapper's posts. In one post, where Cardi B is holding Kulture's hand and flaunting a bling bracelet on her baby, a fan wrote "Am wondering how she wash her baby's cratch cuz her nails always long," and another questioned, "how do you do anything with yo baby with them nails?"
So here is the thing, celebrities who are moms are shamed for their nails and if not anything, they look out for cryptic messages. Kylie Jenner's recent Instagram post for instance, where she opted for an ombre shade of nude and blue and pink. The fun nail colors were considered as her pregnancy announcement because of the choice of colors. Blue for boy and pink, for a girl.
"Back at it again with nail bae," the billionaire captioned and fans immediately commented "new baby announcement."
However, the picture featured two separate hands, one of her friend Heather Sanders, who many believe is her new BFF after Jordyn Woods' fallout. Heather Sander's and Kylie Jenner were pregnant together in 2017.
With that being said, nail trends have become a positive influence coming from celebrities who aren't mothers and so controversial when coming from celebrity mothers. Of course, that's debatable and to each their own, we think we should go with the cow-print.
