Make an Empowered Woman Statement with Nipple Nails
Even nails are joining the #FreeTheNipple movement. Renowned nail artist Mei Kawajiri (@nailsbymei) created a nipple-themed design for her client Erose Aziza. Nipple nails are definitely making a statement about challenging censorship and public nudity laws on the grounds of gender equality.
Nipple-themed Nail Art
Fortunately, the New York City-based manicurist’s nail art successfully circumvents Instagram’s censorship rules surrounding the female nipple, which is why we are able to talk about it today. The gel lacquer she created on Aziza has a 3D effect. The details are amazing, with a varied range of skin tones and even sassy piercings. The thumbnails have a boob ring each.
The Lebanese musician Aziza also posted a photo of her nipple-themed nail art.
How to Create Nipple Nails
If you’d like to create your own statement nails, here are some suggestions. You can use a dotter tool instead of a gel formula to make it easier for you. Make use of three nude shades of your favorite polish brands.
- Set down the base nail polish.
- Apply a large dot in the center.
- Apply the darkest shade of nude in the very center.
- Finally, add the hoops or studs.
Other nail arts inspired by the #FreeTheNipple campaign are boob nails.
YouTuber Jessie Mills (@naileditnz) created boob nails for breast cancer awareness, breastfeeding, #freethenipple, and basically just for fun.
Boob nails! For breast cancer awareness, breastfeeding, #freethenipple – or just for fun! I enjoyed making these so much, obviously they're more of an artsy thing and not for wearing… not that I'd judge either way tbh. The nails are fake and I just stuck them on to take the photo 😂. #herecomesthehaters #boobsaregreat #boobnails
Free the Nipple Movement
The Free the Nipple campaign is supported by a number of celebrities and fashion icons, with Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, and Bella Hadid as the movement’s more prominent advocates. In October 2016, Kendall Jenner reveals that she loves “[her] tits being out,” showcasing her nipple piercing. The fashion statement has since spawned numerous copies.
Other personalities that support the cause are Miley Cyrus, Kate Moss, Cara Delevigne, Rita Ora, and Rihanna. You can read about it here.
