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.

Off the rip, some of you may wonder what prompted me to write on a topic like this. There are two main causes for the inspiration. One, I find myself having a lot of conversations with women who can't seem to figure out, for the life of them, why sometimes their sexual experiences are the peak of pleasure while others are more on the ho-hum side. Secondly, I've read before that reportedly 46 percent of women have stated that they've always or almost always (whatever that means) have had an orgasm before while only six percent professed to it happening for them all of the time.

Ciara one-two-stepped her way into our lives over two decades ago and she's been giving ever since. I remember wanting to be just like her as I entered high school. She was beautiful, talented and an all-around five-star chick. From her style to the way she just seems so effortless, she was all that I wanted to be. To this day, she is still goals. Ciara once said about style, "I believe a person's style is an expression of who you are - way more than dancing."

Micro trends make the world go around. Just kidding, but they are really fun and add a certain je ne sais quoi to one's wardrobe. As the seasons change, there's a short-lived fashion cycle of certain clothing and accessory trends that have a sudden boom in popularity which last at least 1-2 years. Thanks to the invention of fast fashion, in most cases, these seasonal items are loved by the masses just to be thrown to the back of our closets within the next few months.
