Created by the founders of IV KULTURE in 2020, The 2% Black Nail Tech Initiative is focused on amplifying black nail technicians by creating a platformthat supports, collaborates and showcases their artistry.

To build an inclusive nail community, there must be a space and place for the voices of the disenfranchised.
