These Black-owned brands are giving mani goals.

Marsai Martin is making moves. At only 17 years old, the actress has founded a production company, Genius Productions, became Hollywood’s youngest producer after starring and producing Little, and more recently, she launched a luxury press-on nail company called Mari by Marsai.

According to her Instagram, “everybody and they momma was doing makeup so I wanted to do something different."

Marsai’s press-on nail packs range from $20-$22 and she also provided a tutorial on how to properly apply the nails. But while the actress is now getting to the press-on nails bag, she isn’t the only one. There are many Black-owned press-on nails companies to choose from.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically.

'Abbott Elementary' Proves That TV Can Build Community

The first time I thought about how art could be a form of community building was with HBO’s Insecure. The dearly departed comedy series created and starring Issa Rae provided audiences with more than just weekly laughs over the course of five years, but it also created space for other Black artists and entrepreneurs to thrive-- from all the Black businesses that the show has collaborated with to the Black music artists that the show has put audiences onto.
