- June marks the start of Pride Month, which honors LGBTQ+ communities.
- One way to celebrate is with Pride-inspired nails.
- Manicures often include iconic colors from the Pride Flag, Transgender Flag, Non-Binary Pride Flag, etc.
Color is everywhere every Pride month. One of the most distinct symbols is the rainbow flag – a representation of a “new revolution: a tribal, individualistic and collective vision” for the gay community, according to its designer, Gilbert Baker. It is a symbol of unity with colors that for many can simply evoke joy. Still, it’s not the only one worth celebrating; there is also the transgender flag (using baby blue, pink and white), the non-binary pride flag (purple and black), the lesbian flag (pink, orange, white and red), the pansexual flag (pink , yellow and blue), among others .
Celebrating this month and showing support for the LGBTQ+ community — whether you’re hitting the streets or keeping it virtual — can take many forms. Beauty lovers, for example, can do this through festive makeup or paint on a colorful Pride nail look. No nail salon required.
