Celebrities have the means to spend a lot more on beauty rituals than the average person, but even though that’s common knowledge, it’s still pretty shocking when actual dollar amounts are revealed. Cardi B took to Instagram this weekend to share how much she spends on her nails and hair — and she’s not complaining.
“We getting more expensive boo boo,” she says in the caption of the video, which appears to take place in the backseat of a moving vehicle. “Lemme tell y’all motherfuckers something. It’s getting more and more expensive — nah, for real — it’s getting more expensive to maintain us women,” she starts.
“You know, this is not the early 2000s and shit where you give a bitch $100 to get her motherfucking hair done, nails done, her eyebrows done, whatever. Nah. Let me tell you something — like, bitches is not getting the $17 full set with three free nail designs, motherfucker,” Cardi says, noting that she not only gets gels, she gets Swarovski crystals on her gels. “So that about there is like about $200, feet and nails. You know what I’m saying?” If I’m being honest, I do not know what she is saying. I’ve never dropped more than $80 on a mani-pedi appointment, but that’s just me.
