These 8 Manicure Sets Are Unapologetically Black AF

The power of a fresh set of dope nails.

Beauty & Fashion

It's been an emotional and overwhelming week. In the midst of finding normalcy amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still here fighting injustice, racism, and police brutality. The death of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor was the straw that broke the camel's back and we're screaming enough is enough! We're protesting, we're holding white people, police officers, and the rest of America accountable. We are not settling for the minimum. In doing this, many of us are protesting in the streets, signing petitions, protesting on social media, and making donations. While, some of us are also using the power of a fresh set to share the message.

Check out these 8 empowering af nail designs that support Black Women and #BlackLivesMatter.

For The Culture

What I love most about this set is that it has different elements of our culture -- a pick, fro', the unified fist, and of course Black Lives Matter. This is also an alternative for the girls who want to keep it natural but still speak up!

This nail design took a slightly different approach. These nails not only defend our culture but it celebrates it.

George Floyd

OK, we have to give this nail tech her flowers because the detail is on point. But we get the message. #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd, period.

Both designs say a lot and call out for better policing tactics! I love variety in length and shape. You can either go long with a stiletto nail or keep it short but spicy with a short pointy set.

BLM

If you're more of the subtle type, you can opt for a one-finger statement instead of all ten fingers. It's short, sweet, and to the point. By the way, these are press-on nails.

This multi-colored "BLM" stiletto set is another simple but meaningful press-on design.

Lastly, we have our very own Joce Blake coming through with this almond shaped BLM nail art.

Is it just me or does it seem like, these days, folks are used to just throwing words and phrases out without really understanding what they mean? Take being a free spirit, for example. While some people may be spontaneous (at times), like to take risks or even be a lot of fun to be around, that doesn't automatically or necessarily make them a free spirit. In short, a free-spirited person is someone who's considered to be a nonconformist. And, even with that said, it goes a little bit deeper.
