For some, the Super Bowl has to do with football, household, and cheering on the house group. For others (me), it has to do with shoveling as numerous Totinos Pizza Rolls in my mouth as humanly possible while cranking up the volume on the commercials and halftime program. And for those in the latter camp, some great news: You do not even need to endure the video game this year, due to the fact that the majority of the advertisements are dropping early– including my individual favorite, “Is Pepsi Ok?”
The area, which uses the timeless waiter concern, functions Lil Jon, Steve Carell, and Cardi B. But the genuine star of the program is Cardi’s Swarovski crystal-encrusted Pepsi manicure, which she satisfyingly click-clacks versus the can.
Fascinated by her blue-and-red bejeweled claws, we overtook Cardi’s go-to nail artist, Jenny Bui, to get the scoop. She informed us that the nails were Cardi’s concept, however that the star at first just desired one color: blue. “I suggested that she do three colors to match with the Pepsi can,” Bui states. “I really attempted to produce the Pepsi logo design with crystals, however Cardi stated no, due to the fact that she didn’t wish to distribute that she was doing a Pepsi business [before it aired].”

Bui begun by painting on white, blue, and red polishes, getting as near to the brand name colors as she could. Le Chat’s Into The Deep nail polish, which sounds in at simply under $7, wound up being the best match for the blue, Bui states. Then came the genuine job: meticulously glueing on every last Swarovski crystal. “I used around 25-45 Swarovski crystals on each nail. So, altogether it was hundreds of small crystals,” Bui states, including that she sourced the bling from DreamtimeCreations “Ultimately, it took around two and a half hours to complete.”
In completion, it was well worth the effort, with fans requiring to Twitter to share their appreciation. “The Pepsi ad would not work without them nails,” composed one fan, while another published, “A LOOK OK? & the Pepsi color theme. Her team really works hard forreal.”
Now, with this fan-favorite advertisement recorded and all set to make its Super Bowl launching, Cardi and her group are preparing her next relocation. “I am really thrilled to deal with her for the 2019Grammys,” Bui states. “I do not understand what she’s using yet, so we have not chosen the nail styles, however it will be reallyCardi.” It constantly is.
Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?
