Now I’m team Nicki all day but when Cardi B’s video on how expensive it is to maintain a baddie came up on my timeline, I had to agree.
In an expletive-filled yet lighthearted video, Cardi painted a picture as to why looking fly is getting more and more expensive as the days go by.
The New York rapper sat in the backseat of a car, purple hair and hoop earrings swaying as she spoke. "Let me tell you motherf--kers something. It's getting more and more expensive to maintain us women," she began.
Cardi went on to explain why 2018 is different than ever before. "You know, this is not the early 2000s and s--t where you give a bitch a hundred dollars to get her motherf--king hair done, nails done, her eyebrows done," she explained. "Nah. Bitches ain't getting the $17 nail set with three nail designs. Some bitches want gel and some hoes like me want Swarovski crystals. So that about there is about $200 feet and nails, you know what I'm saying?"
We don't do the blowouts or the sew-ins and s--t," the "Bodak Yellow" rapper said. "No, a bitch want the whole full-lace wig."
And how much exactly will a full-lace wig set you back?
"The wig is about $800, $500 it really depends where you get it from," Cardi clarified. "The styling is about $200, $300 dollars. So just on that is a thousand dollars. So what's good?"
While I was initially shocked that Cardi pronounced Swarovski correctly, I had to agree. My monthly brazilian wax costs $65, my hair cut is $30, getting my hair bleached is additional $60, I love a fabulous full set with dope nail art so that’s about $80, add a gel pedi at $30, lash extensions are other $140, and my microbladed eyebrows are $340. That little hundred bill that used to rock back when I was in high school ain’t cutting it in 2018.
So for real, what’s good?
Ladies- sound off. How much does it cost to be you?
