Megan Thee Stallion’s Fang Nails Are Just as Sexy as They Are Scary

In the music video for her song “Cobra,” which dropped in November 2023, Megan Thee Stallion kicks off her new era by crawling out of a snake's jaws. The rapper has embraced the snake motif for the latest chapter in her career to represent rebirth. “Like a snake sheds its skin, we must shed our past over and over again," she says in the video. Snakes aren't just a central theme in her artistry — they're also the inspiration behind her latest manicure.

Megan gave us a glimpse at her snakelike nails in a teaser video for her forthcoming birthday photoshoot, but now we get to see them in all their scary yet sexy glory in a handful of close-up shots. “I’ve really been into my new fang nails lately,” the “Hiss” rapper wrote on Instagram. Her nails, created by her go-to nail artist Coca Michelle, are reminiscent of a serpent's fangs with dramatic, razor-sharp points.

The nails themselves are thicker at the base and nearly translucent in color, looking as though she literally placed a snake fang directly atop her fingernails. She's worn them in a few incarnations as of late, including a more neutral set with lots of shine, one with subtle hint of reddish color at the base of her nail, and another with a slightly darker brown tip. I happen to be terrified of snakes, but I can't stop staring at these nails despite my fear, they're that cool.

The fang nails are yet another installment in Megan and Coca Michelle's manicure hall of fame, a collection that includes a plethora of true artistry. The duo are constantly whipping up jaw-dropping nail art, like the set with snake-print fabric inside them that Megan wore to the 2023 MTV VMAs, her golden Schiaparelli nails, the LED light-up set for a trip to Japan, and the Nintendo World set from spring 2023. “My nail tech can do anything I ask,” Megan once said of Michelle's otherworldly talents, and after seeing these literal fang fingernails, we believe her.
