During Caitlyn Jenner’s mainstream interview with Diane Sawyer, it was casually revealed that Bruce Jenner looked forward to ‘wearing nail polish’ the most when completing the transition to Caitlyn. The interview has accelerated profound conversations about gender identity. 

Mainstream America and Western culture are now facing a growing movement that calls upon us to both ask and answer an uncomfortable question: “What makes a woman?” 

While adorning nail polish may not “make” a woman - I do believe that it is a cultural symbol - no longer attributed to class - but to gender. It is a symbol that makes us feel beautiful, alluring, creative, playful and even feminine (whatever that term may imply). It is not just Egyptian Queens or Chinese royalty that can enjoy nail decoration and nail polish - it is the masses that drive this beauty category (Mass nail products are often considered recession proof & the new "Lipstick Index"). And that is incredibly powerful.

At Preemadonna- while we have a focus on girls and women - we embrace anyone that identifies themselves as a person that loves creativity, collaboration, intelligence and beauty in all of its forms and shapes. So if nail polish does not make a woman, it does make a Preemadonna. We welcome you here - in our global family - with open arms.

-Pree
