Snoop Dogg received a house call from nail artists to give him a French manicure with black and white tips and marijuana leaf and dollar sign decals. The Snoopicure was posted to Twitter by Jezebel. 

What else is there to say? It’s such a beautiful moment. Clearly a thing this glorious deserves to be memorialized in the ancient poetic form of ghazal:

 

You may think just lady-rappers splash out with a manicure.

But Snoop Dogg’s fingers shine by design, with a French manicure.

 

His manhood’s stronger than the smell of weed, yet be assured

On Twitter, Snoop’s nails look fine with a divine French manicure.

 

Kanye wore a skirt, but we must dub Snoop gender-bender fuhr

Yeezus walks, but not to spas for a sublime French manicure.

 

Snoop’s love for looking good is pure, but his style is not demure

Which is why he looks so fly with a top-line French manicure.

 

What is next? A long sarong, an experimental coiffure?

Or will Snoop stick with what he knows best, a fine French manicure?

 

(Rhyming liberties were taken because Snoop once rhymed “Phys. Ed” with “ahizzead.”)
