NAIL COLOUR INSPIRATION FOR WOMEN OF COLOUR.

 “Life Is Not Perfect but Your Nails Can Be.”

-Anon

The aphorism ‘Your nail is a way to speak your style without having to say a word’ should blaze through your mind this new week. Women of colour are most times indecisive and distrustful on the particular colour of nail polish to try out – talk of the fear of being entangled in a colour riot jumble or “huesaster” (saw what I did there) ha-ha!

Constantly playing it safe can be quite boring and mind-numbing; colours, on the other hand, put in extra fun vibes to one’s personality and tang to an individual’s appearance. Knowing the right shade that suits your skin tone is a colour ruse as appose to wigs and braids.

I will like to bring to your knowledge that women of colour have a variety of stylish hues to pick from, on the colour chart…one major hue trick is rocking pastel tones, and this is a safer means of making a bold statement. Pastel colours are perky, as well as currently a trend which shouldn’t be merely portrayed through wigs/ hair extensions alone let’s equally brighten up this summer by incorporating Pastel polish into the ongoing beauty rave.

More so, you SCHICK beauties can’t be mono inspired; not in a chic summer like this …turn down for what?! Let’s surf in the summer wave and dive into the deep hue sea *pun intended – bearing in mind that we can also slay deep tones of our favourite colours.

Without further ado, here is a list of WOC inspired nail tint you should mull over when booking your next nail appointment.
