Our Mission

People of Color is a non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free nail polish brand made to complement the various shades of brown skin as the first thought, not an afterthought. We celebrate and represent people of color from all over the world and tell our stories, our way, through our nail polish collections.

We want our tribe to know that our brand celebrates them and their beauty. People of Color. You are us. We are you.
