Move over OPI there is a new trendy nail polish brand on the rise, and I’m definitely here for it! Rapper Lil Yachty is set to release his first color from his nail polish line, Crete, on May 21. Packaged in a stylish matte black tube with white writing on it, the nail polish is gender-inclusive; however, the “Oprah’s Bank Account” rapper stated in a previous TMZ interview that his new line is geared mostly towards males.
“It’s essentially like, it’s unisex, but I want it to be more focused on for men to use it, and to be more comfortable in their own skin,” Lil Yachty said.
According to his Instagram comments, fans are excited about his new venture. Many were singing him praises for his latest entrepreneurial endeavor while others wrote about how they could not wait to sport the new nail paint. As shown in his Instagram post, the colors will be neutral shades like black, gray, and white.
While nail polish was traditionally associated with the female gender, Lil Yachty is known for rocking a painted manicure and not thinking twice about what others have to say about it. He and other male celebrities have adopted the “doing me” attitude when it comes to nail art. ASAP Rocky, Dwayne Wade, Lil Pump, and even the OG Snoop Dog have all confidently taken part in the male nail polish trend. Males, especially male celebrities who rap or play sports, are often held to a macho standard simply because of their gender and occupation. So, it is refreshing to see them go against the norms of society and embrace their individuality.
