Every season while creating a new collection for Pear Nova the same thought comes to my mind – “This is my FAVORITE set of nail colors.” I find myself infatuated with the stories the color schemes tell and get lost in a lovely relationship with those shades for a short while until my mind falls upon new favorites. What happened and is still happening with this all nude collection is nothing short of magic.

I have been dying to make a nail polish collection of all nude shades for a while but had the hardest time coming up with names for them. I played with the idea of flirty names and even had a nice list of pretty sandy beaches I have visited to name them after. Luckily I had a conversation with my sister-in-love about all things beauty and was hit with the idea to simply give them women’s names. Not just any women – women who I have been inspired by and who continuously inspire me & millions of others in fashion, art, beauty and love. Welcome Frida BE Free, Dianna Boss, Michelle Our Mama and Cleo F*cking Patra to the Pear Nova family. Most probably love the names, the women they represent and the magic those women have concocted more than the colors themselves and that’s fine with me. I’m just glad that we brown girls have more nude nail colors to choose from with #BRWNGRLMGC.

Since it seems everyone is in love with #BRWNGRLMGC as much as I am, I would love to add more shades to the collection. Let’s make this a long term thing and not a seasonal love. If you know of any women who have inspired you please leave them in the comments and she might be the next brown girl we celebrate.

    Everyone loves Beyoncé. Would love to see your version of this powerful woman. She’s a good role model, amazing performer, one of the hardest working women and on top of that natural beauty!
