One woman nailed her beauty ode to Black History Month.
KiKi from Pembroke Pines, Fla., frequently posts photos of her nail art, but one of her most recent creations has gotten a lot of attention. In honor of Black History Month, the nail artist created a set of acrylics using the faces of four icons: Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., and of course, Barack and Michelle Obama. The rest of the manicure was black or glittery.
Putting photos of their faces on her fingers is a brilliant way to honor some of the most courageous and groundbreaking leaders our country has ever seen. And Instagram agrees. The Shade Room shared the masterpiece and it’s received more than 90k likes.
This is better than when Cardi B’s manicurist printed pictures of her boyfriend for her birthday nails.
Imagine how motivating it would be to see all of these faces as you ate meals or typed the day away. We’d probably make much better decisions. At least our emails would be way more dignified.
