Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
Created by Raquel Nevarez with our Fantastical collection, this look is a cinch to recreate.
1. Apply base coat
2. Tear a makeup sponge into rectangular piece. It should be roughly the width and length of the nail. It’s OK if it’s a little larger, but shouldn’t be smaller than the nail
3. Using Dear Mr. Fantasy, Xanadu and Weird Science, paint vertical adjacent stripes on the sponge. Line the sponge up to your nail and pat down as you move the sponge left to right to blend the colors. Repeat this step until you achieve the desired look
4. Clean the cuticles and sides using a cotton bud or small brush dipped in acetone. Apply top coat and you’re done”
“Anaconda” turns Nicki’s butt into a literal force of nature, causing earthquakes in a jungle setting. After parodying the idea of exoticism by opening on a jungle scene, she shifts into a workout setup with comically small weights. All of these setups make the same point: Nicki’s body is the modern ideal. And because Nicki is spitting rapid-fire jokes the whole time she is onscreen, it’s impossible to feel like she’s been reduced to a mere body.
This is confirmed by what comes next: Nicki squirting whipped cream on her tits, fondling a banana, and then slicing the banana with a maniacal laugh. Cutting up a metaphorical dick onscreen makes it even more clear that the “Anaconda” video is about Nicki asserting her power, not as a sexual object but a sexual subject. Both the suggestive choreography and the song’s lyrics, which recount a series of sexual encounters, double down on the fact that Nicki has all the power here, and that she can show as much of her body as she likes and retain all that power.
