Activism Mani Art Will Nail Down Your Stance On Social Change

Pro manicurist Ami Vega knows how to express her political opinions in the most creative way possible—through nail art. Think you're ready to let your voice be heard through your nails?

We're lucky to live in a country where we're encouraged to express our political views whenever and however we'd like. Whether you prefer to march or make nail art part of your political platform (or hopefully both!), we love seeing how women express their right to free speech.

Our latest obsession? Ami Vega. This seriously skilled manicurist has some killer nail designs that range from political activism, women's rights, Black Lives Matter and human rights — all movements we're more than ready to support on our digits.

Vega's empowering mani messages are definitely some of the raddest around, and we picked our favorites just so you can get a taste of her manicure mastery.
