Black Women In The Nail Business …. Black Industry A Must

Women spend nearly $1 billion dollars every year on nail polish, and one survey revealed that 33% of women own at least 25 bottles of nail polish. The industry consists of many trends including sand polish, matte finishes, at-home gel, polishes that look like gels, and even gel stickers. African women in the diaspora reportedly are the biggest spenders in this industry, and so it’s refreshing that several nail polish companies are… well, Black-owned.

Here’s at least 5 of the popular Black-owned nail polish brands:

#1 – Adore Her Nails: Former model turned nail lacquer enthusiast, Devorne Love, created this eye-catching and affordable line that also has a fun and flirty appeal.
