As I was browsing through nail designs, I realized that there was a shortage in black girl nail designs. Now of course, any design can work for any skin tone. But what I’m referring to is the lack of nail design photos that feature brown skin.

So, I thought that it would be nice to curate a nail design collection that specifically features brown and dark skin.
