It should come as no surprise then that Leah's daughter Kier has inherited her affinity for fabulous nails with playful details. But in a recent Instagram Story, Leah made sure to put critics of her daughter's choice of nail design in their place with a few choice words. 

It all started when Leah shared her fancy, Chanel logo-laden talons on Instagram after her manicure. Leah turned to Candy Coated Beauty to create her square-tipped, coffin nails with color-blocked, pink tips and gold designer insignia. The look was over-the-top, fun, and fabulous — just what we would expect from the Married to the Mob designer. 

Her daughter Kier also got in on the action with a similarly-shaped, long nail design with petite stars and an itty bitty Playboy bunny motif. Leah fired back at potential critics as only she can by adding, "Yes I let my daughter get playboy bunny nails ya prude, small-minded haters."
