International Women's Day 2019 Nail Art

Happy International Women's Day to all my ladies out there! I am so pumped to be sharing the nail art that I did for this empowering day.

I knew that I wanted to paint some strong women on my nails for this day, and I was so so inspired by the illustrations of Ann Shen (Website | Instagram) an amazing illustration who created the book "BAD GIRLS THROUGHOUT HISTORY: 100 REMARKABLE WOMEN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD." 

I hope that you all enjoy these nails as much as I do, and I hope that you appreciate all the women in your life every day -- but especially today.

Maya Angelou

On my index finger, I have painted the wonderful Maya Angelou. Maya was an American poet, singer, memoirist, and civil rights activist. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, several books of poetry, and is credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning over 50 years. She received dozens of awards and more than 50 honorary degrees.

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. - Maya Angelou 

Frida Kahlo

On my middle finger, I have the wonderful Frida Kahlo, a Mexican artist who painted many portraits, self-portraits, and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico. Inspired by the country's popular culture, she employed a naïve folk art style to explore questions of identity, postcolonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society. As a Mexican woman myself, I have always been a huge huge fan of Frida.

Passion is the bridge that takes you from pain to change. -Frida Kahlo

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

On my ring finger, I have the one and only Ruth Bader Ginsburg, aka RBG, an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States and overall badass. She graduated from Columbia Law School, has gone on to become a staunch courtroom advocate for the fair treatment of women and working with the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project.
