The Academy Awards faced renewed criticism and the resurrection of #OscarsSoWhite in the wake of revealing a slate of 20 acting nominees without a single person of color.

With discussion of representation and colorblind casting on the rise, the snubs this year feel especially egregious when films like Creed, Beasts of No Nation, Dope, Concussion and Straight Out of Compton won praise. Now, into the fray of this debate comes self-proclaimed actress/comedian/vlogger Franchesca “Chescaleigh” Ramsey, offering a sharp and cheeky cultural criticism with her Oscar-themed manicure tutorial.

Kristy Puchko lives in perpetual fear that ice cream will become self-aware New York City.
