Cardi B's Nails For the Grammys Had Almost 200 Swarovski Crystals on Them

Underneath Cardi B's long, blush gloves is a manicure that's shining. The artist's go-to manicurist Jenny Bui told POPSUGAR that Cardi B chose OPI Gel Polish in Machu Peach-u ($11) for her base to match the different dresses that she would be wearing for the evening. Then, Bui carefully placed 15-20 small Swarovski crystals that framed one larger, centered crystal on each of her fingernails. "She wanted the nails to look elegant," said the "Bling Queen" (as Bui is known on Instagram), adding th...

Cardi B's Nails Are The Best Part Of The Pepsi Super Bowl Commercial

For some, the Super Bowl is about football, family, and cheering on the home team. For others (me), it's about shoveling as many Totinos Pizza Rolls in my mouth as humanly possible while cranking up the volume on the commercials and halftime show. And for those in the latter camp, some good news: You don't even have to sit through the game this year, because most of the ads are dropping early — including my personal favorite, "Is Pepsi Ok?"The spot, which plays on the classic waiter question, f...

Cardi B Is Thrilled to Have Her Nails "Fleeked Out" Again

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on Aug 11, 2018 at 12:16pm PDT If you thought Cardi B was going to take a break from her long, bedazzled nails now that she's a mom, think again. The rapper finally made it to her favorite New York salon Nails on 7th to get her acrylics reapplied and fully designed. The rapper picked a square-shaped tip in a hot pink hue, adorned with multi-colored jewels. According to her nail artist Jenny Bui, Cardi B came all the way from Atlanta t...

The Woman Behind Cardi B's Manicures Talks Discrimination in Nail Salons

Getty / Dimitrios Kambouris As Jenny Bui, the "Queen of Bling," owner of Nails on 7th, and manicurist to Cardi B prepares to paint my nails, her husband Billy takes off my weeks-old polish. "He supports me all the time," Bui tells me. "If I didn't have him, I wouldn't have what I do today." I can attest: Mr. Bui is an excellent hype man, and he came to our appointment toting Jenny's nail arsenal so she wouldn't have to. What Jenny has today is nothing short of a bonafide bling empire (blingpir...

Response to Comment on "Water harvesting from air with metal-organic frameworks powered by natural sunlight"

In their comment, Bui et al. argue that the approach we described in our report is vastly inferior in efficiency to alternative off-the-shelf technologies. Their conclusion is invalid, as they compare efficiencies in completely different operating conditions. Here, using heat transfer and thermodynamics principles, we show how Bui et al.’s conclusions about the efficiencies of off-the-shelf technologies are fundamentally flawed and inaccurate for the operating conditions described in our study.

Cardi B's Nails Might Be More Expensive That Her "Bloody Shoes"

When you think of Belcalis Almanzar — better known as Cardi B — it might be her penchant for Christian Louboutin shoes that comes to mind. After all, she has over 90 pairs and has made the term "bloody shoes" a household nickname with this summer's biggest chart-topping hit. But Cardi isn't just extravagant when it comes to her footwear: Her manicures are pretty damn glam, too, thanks to Jenny Bui of Nails on 7th in NYC's Bronx neighborhood."I've been doing her nails for five years," Bui, who...

An intimate and poignant graphic novel portraying one family’s journey from war-torn Vietnam

Once I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down. Thi Bui’s debut illustrated memoir, The Best We Could Do , is an exploration of family and identity, past and present. In the preface, Bui explains that the evolution of the work, from an oral history project turned handmade book 15 years ago to its current form as a graphic novel, meant she needed to learn to draw comics, an undertaking she describes as having a “steep learning curve.” Based on her stunningly narrative art which breathes...

Design Miami 2016: Another Land & Inverted Lands by Huy Bui

While perhaps it’s true that immensity automatically commands attention, delicacy should not be denied its rightful place in design. The Geological Frame series by Huy Bui, represented by Patrick Parrish Gallery, caught my attention exactly for its slim structure. These brass tables—Another Land occasional tables and Inverted Lands console—are mere outlines, as if they’re the ghosts of tables. But just after the thin brass frames haunted me, I shifted my focus to Bui’s knotted wood slabs, which...

A memoir of a Vietnamese-American

I am Vietnamese-American , a child of refugees who came to America partially for better opportunities but mostly out of necessity. If you’re interested, you can google Vietnam. You will mainly find war stories and phở recipes and Full Metal Jacket references, but that’s not really who I am. My dad would criticize how I can’t seem to describe my Vietnamese-ness in words but, frankly, it’s more of a feeling. I’ve been sitting here for half an hour thinking about what being Vietnamese means to me...

The States And Stakes Of Poverty In The U.S.A.

On September 13, the Census Bureau released a report that the U.S. economy had performed well for many Americans in 2015. The report indicated that the poverty rate had fallen by 1.2 percentage points last year - which was the biggest decline in one year since 1968. That is good news, in fact very good news, for the state of poverty in the United States. But, even with this shining light, shadows remain across the country. States of poverty still exist and much more needs to be done to reduce...
