Happy Pride 🌈 Here at Iwi Nails, we believe our LGBTQIA+ ʻohana should be visible and accepted everyday, not just during the month of June. But we do want to take this month dedicated to them as an opportunity to highlight and honor them! This design was created in collaboration with a wonderful human, Cullen Willing. Here’s his inspiration behind the design:
The moon has always felt like a kindred spirit, coming out only at night, preferring the cool and dark over the glaring heat and visibility of the day. I often feel that my life mirrors its cycle as time goes on - I grow and change, but always maintain who I am, my identity. I chose this design as a nod to traditional PRIDE aesthetics 🌈, but more as a representation of my journey. Many people, because of my identity, have pushed me into the dark, attempting to ignore or hide who I am. But I continue to show my vibrant colors, shining bright despite the dark that sometimes surrounds me. When you wear this design, remember to always be yourself and allow your light to shine no matter who tries to dampen it.
