What's The 2% Black Nail Tech Initiative?

Created by the founders of IV KULTURE in 2020, The 2% Black Nail Tech Initiative focus on amplifying black nail technicians by creating a platform that supports, collaborates and showcases their artistry. Black nail technicians make up only 2% of registered nails techs - one of the largest gaps in the beauty cosmetics industry. In order to build an inclusive nail community, there must be a space and place for the voices of the disenfranchised. 
How to Support 
A portion of sales from IV KULTURE products help support this initiative. This includes creating a black nail tech directory designed to elevate their artistry and function as a platform for the nail techs to grow their clientele; a top obstacle once completing cosmetology school.   
Our Mission 
To create a more inclusive and diverse environment for black nail artistry and products. Through this effort, we can help close this gap and achieve a more connected nail community. 
Our Goal
  • Build a black nail tech directory across 50 states in the U.S.

  • Help 400 black nail techs obtain their license and operate in the U.S. 

  • Locate apprenticeship opportunities and support the cost of nail insurance and cosmetology school testing fees
