6 Black-Owned Nail Polish Brands You Should Know About

African Americans getting nail polish

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 American women reportedly are the biggest spenders in this industry, and so it's no surprise that several nail polish brands are... well, Black-owned.

Here are six of the most 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.

#2 - Polish and Company: From cosmologist and nail expert, Theresa Williamson, this brand was created for the beauty bombshell with the aesthetics of a Southern belle.

#3 - Lisa Nail Lacquer: Created by Lisa Wilson, a beauty editor who has worked at some of the top fashion magazines in NYC, this line of nail polish is cruelty free, non-toxic, but features some very vibrant colors. Her chip-resistant, high quality formula is definitely tried and true
