Icy girls, if you were looking for new mani and pedi inspiration, Saweetie has got you covered. The singer has just been announced as the new face of SinfulColor and they’ve got new nail art galore coming our way. If you’ve been following Saweetie for a whole, you’d know she takes her nails seriously. The rapper has been following (and setting) nail trends since her high school days and now, thanks to her SinfulColor partnership, her fans can indulge in some icy girl-approved nails without breaking the bank.
Saweetie’s first memory with nail art goes way back to being a little kid and pouring red nail polish onto her fingernails while on the bathroom floor. “I didn’t know how to paint, I spilled the paint everywhere,” Saweetie tells Teen Vogue. Her mom wasn’t too happy about it, but that didn’t stop Saweetie’s love for nails.
Growing up in the Bay area, bright and bold highlighter colors influenced the way Saweetie and her peers dressed, and she admits she took her self-expression to the next level with her nails. “I always did one hand one color and one hand another color,” she says. (Fun fact, that’s exactly how her nails were done when she spoke to Teen Vogue, showing off her opposite yet complementing SinfulColors Essenchills™ polishes.)

The uniqueness that mix and match style provided is what got Saweetie into experimenting with her nails. She was the first person to ever attempt that style at her high school. It’s what she was known for. Now, thanks to the new partnership, she’ll be creating nail art and setting more trends for icy girls.
From bold solid colors to dynamic prints, we’ve seen an array of nail art on Saweetie. Like most of us, Saweetie finds inspiration for her nails on Pinterest – whether she’s wearing acrylic nails or press-ons. Last year, Twitter tried to dub her as a “hood b*tch cosplay” for rocking her long, acrylic nails; but the “Pretty B.I.T.C.H. Music” rapper shut trolls down quick, reassuring fans that she won’t let anyone box her into a “good college girl.” After all, she’s been into nails. For Black women, acrylic nails are a form of expression that you grow up with – donning various paint designs during your childhood and going into exaggerated and long acrylics as an adult.
SinfulColor’s collections have colors and prints for just about anyone. “There’s a color and a design for every girl out there,” Saweetie tells Teen Vogue. And that’s what nail art is all about. The brand’s latest drop includes the Essenchills™ collection, featuring an assortment of self-care-inspired shades formulated with scents like coffee and whiffs of water with soothing hues to accompany them like deep browns and creamy pastels. Saweetie’s favorite is the coffee, not only because of the unique smoky aroma but also because of how the caramel color complements her skin.
