Cardi B walked the Grammys red carpet wearing pink gloves, but under the gloves, she rocked an amazing, sparkling mani! Watch a video of the over-the-top look below!
Cardi B was a showstopper in a Mugler oyster-inspired gown on the Grammys red carpet. She finished her look with long pink gloves, but she was hiding a big secret! Her nails were out-of-this-world amazing — and covered in crystals! Manicurist Jenny Bui told POPSUGAR how she created the over the top manicure. She first used the $11 OPI Gel Polish in Machu Peach-u. She needed a neutral shade since Cardi B wore three outfits at the show.
Jenny precisely placed between 15 and 20 Swarovski crystals on each nail. “She wanted the nails to look elegant,” Jenny said of Cardi’s vision. It took a long time to get this look — “We worked from 10 pm to 4:30 am, but that’s because we kept stopping.” Normally, the look only takes an hour. Guess they were having a lot of fun! See a video of the finished product below:

Cardi’s makeup was done by Erika La Pearl, who used Pat McGrath Labs makeup. Celebrity hairstylist Tokyo Stylez created Cardi’s red carpet pearl-covered beehive using Suave Professionals products. “The inspiration behind Cardi B.’s red carpet look is a 90’s influenced pearl updo to play up her couture ensemble,” he told us. One key was a $3 hairspray: “I will use the as needed throughout the night to ensure the hairstyle stays intact.”
