The Hand Sanitizer Nail Art Craze Is Proof Coronavirus Has Caused Y’all To Lose Your Minds

Updated on May 13, 2020.

The coronavirus is spreading and making the world collectively lose our minds. As if having to stock up on non-perishables, toilet paper, and paper towels, COVID-19 has also made us have to pump up on the Purell in the midst of hand sanitizer shortage scares.

Enter, a new nail trend the CDC has yet to list as a side-effect of the virus with flu-like symptoms so vague you might not know if you even have it right now.

Nail artist Mei Kawajiri used Coronavirus as her inspiration for her latest nail art.

Hey guys🖐 I guess THIS is we need in our hands right now 💕💦✨ @purellbrand / photo 📸by @capomorra ,@mmmlw ✨📸/ #handsanitizer #nailsbymei #mask #purell

A post shared by NAILS by MEI (@nailsbymei) on

In a post to her Instagram page, Kawajiri shared a picture of her hand sanitizer inspired- manicure with the caption “Hand sanitizer (aloe)nails 💦🖐✨ #Nailsbymei #stayclean.”

Kawajiri’s manicure features the classic “wet” look of nail art as well as symbols and labels inspired by a Purell bottle. She also used the coffin nail shape which we’re sure has some pretty morbid meaning.

Our takeaway? Apparently anyone can take away inspiration from a crisis.

Think this one’s crazy? We’ve got a whole heck of a lot more.

Having nails that are on fleek, can be so essential to amping up your look for the beach or even what you wear to date night. Still, some nails can be so extra. And yet we’re def obsessing over these COVID-inspired nails.

Especially these that went all ~3D~ on us.

And these that stand as a thank you and salute to first responders.

They said that it couldn’t be done… but this is kind of chic.

Love this one that is rallying for our health and safety.

Madonna’s Daughter Lourdes Embraces Natural Body Hair In Beautiful Selfie With Mom

Madonna’s Daughter Lourdes Embraces Natural Body Hair In Beautiful Selfie With Mom

Grooming habits should be a matter of personal choice, but thanks to generations of the patriarchy telling women how they should look, what they should wear, and how they should take care of their bodies, that isn’t always the case. Thankfully, more and more brave women are embracing their natural beauty and that includes their own body hair.

Lourdes Leon showing off her natural arm pit hair is the normalization of body hair we all need.

A post shared by Madonna (@madonna)

Whether it’s on the red carpet or in a photo with her mom, Madonna, Lourdes Leon has a relationship with her body hair we can all admire. For instance, he two posed for a rare selfie on April 10, and Leon’s natural look moved us another step closer to normalizing visible body hair.

The sweet image is captioned: “Like Pieces of your Heart Walking around outside of you #lola.”

‘Lola’ is the nickname of Madonna’s eldest child, whom she shares with Cuban personal trainer-actor Carlos Leon.

The fashion icon’s post has received more than 440,000 ‘likes’ with many fans praising her daughter’s decision to embrace her natural body hair – with comments including “two beautiful, strong women” and “beautiful mother with her gorgeous daughter.”

Leon has never been shy about embracing her natural beauty.

Her mother has pushed beauty boundaries for decades, so it makes sense the 24-year-old model would choose to do the same. In November 2018, Lourdes generated headlines when she showed off her unshaved armpits and legs on the red carpet at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Gala, just weeks after she turned heads for the same reason on the catwalk at New York Fashion Week.

Earlier this year, in February, she also showed off a glimpse of armpit hair in a new fashion campaign for Marc Jacobs. 

It seems that Lourdes may even have been inspired by her famous mom when it comes to ditching the razor. Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar in 2010, the singer said: “Going to high school, I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn’t fit into that.

“So I decided to do the opposite. I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits.”

Kid Cudi Wore A Dress To Pay Tribute To Kurt Cobain During SNL Appearance

SNL

There’s no doubt that SNL has been the stage of some pretty groundbreaking performances and fashion moments. This past weekend was no different. While appearing as the late-night show’s musical guest the 37-year-old rapper of Mexican-American descent wore outfits a la late Nirvana rocker, Kurt Cobain.

Kid Cudi’s made a pretty big retro fashion statement for his Saturday Night Live musical performances this weekend.

For his first performance, which featured his song “Tequila Shots,” Cudi wore a t-shirt featuring the image of a late SNL cast member Chris Farley. Farley died in 1997 at age 33 from an overdose of cocaine and morphine. Over the shirt, Cudi wore a green cardigan, which many Twitter users were quick to note resembled one Kurt Cobain wore.

Cobain died by suicide in 1994.

During his performance of “Sad People,” Kid Cudi changed into a floral dress, which he confirmed in a tweet was in honor of Cobain.

Cudi’s took place on the same week of the anniversary of Cobain’s death, which occured on April 5.

“Virgil [Abloh] designed the dress for me,” Kid Cudi explained about the dress. “I told him I wanted to show love to Kurt w a floral print sundress and this man-made a masterpiece.”

Cudi also shared that he intends to collaborate with Abloh on his fashion label Off-White. The dress will be included.
