Nail art always catches peoples eye - so it comes as no shock that it is now going political.
Ami Vega, Freelance Nail Artist & Editorial Manicurist Based in NYC (Manhattan) has kickstarted the trend by spreading socially conscious messages through her nails on Instagram.
Ami's powerful nail art celebrates the beauty of feminism, womanhood, reproductive freedom, the Black Lives Matter movement, and more, in the most beautiful way.
With all the craziness in todays current affairs it is beyond refreshing to see protest thoughtfully interpreted through nail design.
Many designs surround feminist issues, so they're guaranteed to make you feel empowered.
Not all of her nails are about social justice though, there are also some super cool, quirky and interesting graphic designs too, including glitter and 3D elements.
I love these unicorn ones, perfect for the current obsession everyone seems to have over the mystical creatures.
Last week I held a charity event on behalf of St.Basils as part of my events management module.
The theme was Las Vegas and there were over 200 guests that helped raised a total of over £1,000!!
Here is the outfit I wore - just a very chic money saving LBD from Missguided (not so ethical but good on price) and some sparkling accessories.
Head over to this Instagram to see more images and videos from the night!
