Kylie Jenner’s picture of baby Stormi gets terrifying nail-art tribute

Kylie JennerToday in things you probably wish you could unsee, someone made a nail-art tribute to Kylie Jenner’s first picture of baby Stormi Webster. On paper, that doesn’t seem terribly scary. In fact, it sounds cute, even impressive. I mean, capturing the likeness of Kylie Jenner and the newest member of the Kardashian dynasty with nail polish has got to take some serious skill. Except it’s not just nail polish — it’s a full-on three-dimensional sculpture coming out of the nail.

If you’re having some trouble visualizing this, allow me to help. A week ago, Jenner posted a simple mommy-and-me pic that appears to be the only photograph of baby Stormi thus far. It features the newborn clutching Jenner’s thumbnail, her snoozing face visible in the background. The picture has since become the most liked picture on Instagram of all time, beating out even Beyoncé’s masterpiece of a birth announcement.

Sweet, simple, adorable — only somehow it’s the exact opposite when rendered in manicure form. Russian nail studio Nail Sunny’s tribute to this baby photo leaves out Stormi’s face, keeping only her tiny fingers clutching Jenner’s thumb, which itself is sculpted growing out of a nail. To break this down, that’s five nails on top of a nail on top of another nail. As if that weren’t enough, the nail studio also includes a video of the whole process, so you can see in detail how the mini-Stormi’s disembodied fingers move when the technician presses them down. And we thought that wild Valentine’s Day nail art was controversial — but it’s nothing compared to this look.

This isn’t the only nail-art tribute Nail Sunny has made to Kylie Jenner. Two weeks ago, the studio uploaded a tutorial for another 3-D Kylie likeness, this time showing her entire pregnant body in miniature. In January, it featured a design modelled after her famous lip kit, which was far less terrifying.

Lalla Hirayama to rub shoulders with the stars at The Oscars

M-Net Channels Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard, expressed her excitement at what they have achieved by saying, “you can imagine how broadcasters around the world are trying their luck each year to be part of this prestigious event. It’s a dream come true for M-Net Movies and Lalla and the team will be pulling out all the stops to represent our viewers and stand out from the crowd”.  

Lalla has said she already has her gown ready to go and will be wearing a one-of-a-kind dress by local esteemed fashion designer David Tlale.

Viewers will also have the chance to submit their Oscar questions, which Lalla will potentially answer on the red carpet, simply use the hashtag #AskLalla.

Follow her journey to The Oscars on Twitter, we’ve highlighted a few of our favourite moments so far:

Lupita Nyong’o paid for 600 kids to see Black Panther because she’s the absolute best

LupitaThis post has been updated since it was originally published to reflect the correct number of 600 children sponsored by Lupita Nyong’o for the screening.

Not only did Black Panther break all sorts of box office records last weekend while bringing Wakanda to life for all the world to see, but the film’s cast continues to surprise and delight even more each day. Due to a bet of unknown origin, Lupita Nyong’o seems to be allowed to tell Michael B. Jordan to do push-ups on the spot whenever she chooses. (Please don’t ever let this end!) The female stars are making powerful fashion and beauty statements with every red carpet. And they pay tribute to each other on Instagram in the chicest of ways.

Now Lupita is making the Black Panther experience a reality for 600 children in her hometown of Kisumu, Kenya. The actress announced on Instagram that she (with an assist from her mom) had joined in on the #BlackPantherChallenge, a fund-raising movement originally started to take Harlem children to the movie that has gone global.

 She wrote, “I wanted kids from my hometown to see the positive images reflected in the film and superheroes that they can relate to on the big screen. No matter where you live, you can help make this happen for more children who can’t afford to see the movie.”

In a video, one of the young girls speaks about her takeaways from the film, which included being a good leader by never giving up in the face of challenges and “people coming together to work as a team, to achieve, and to build our nation.” It cannot be understated what an impact seeing yourself reflected onscreen, in strong, heroic characters can have on a child. From Lupita’s super-spy Nakia to Princess Shuri, the tech wiz of Wakanda, the role models are many in Black Panther, and it’s amazing to see people making it a priority that the kids who could most benefit from the movie get a chance to experience it.

Wakanda forever.

Trevor Noah then reposted the picture saying: “My mom is a powerful woman who could easily be one of the beautiful soldiers in Wakanda. So it’s beyond a perfect fit that she would be portrayed on the big screen by the radiant and regal Lupita Nyong’o. I’m beyond excited.”
