This powerful manicure that promotes black beauty.
Nail art has always been a vessel for sending a message, whether it be about our Disney obsession or love for succulents. With the general commotion surrounding Donald Trump's election and subsequent inauguration as president, those messages have started to turn political.
After beauty mavens showed their support for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump with their red, white, and blue manicures, one NYC-based nail artist is helping her clients stay woke with her stunning designs. Ami Vega's nail designs incorporate hot topics like race, reproductive freedom, and violence against women, resulting in gorgeous manicures that send a strong message: get educated on these issues and how they're affecting our everyday lives.
Read on to see some of Ami's best woke manicures so far.
