Meet the Maker
People of Color Beauty was founded by Jacqueline Carrington, who growing up never saw images of nail polish reflected on her skin tone or the skin tones of other girls and women she knew, which made her skip nail polish all together. When her 3-year old daughter Monroe started coming home with painted nails after visits with her GiGi, Jacqueline was inspired to make sure that her daughter had an experience very different from her own.
When she started People of Color she knew that the most important commitment she wanted to make was to showcase the many skin tones within brown communities all over the world in both color selection and product marketing. She wanted to make a nail polish brand that was made to complement the various shades of brown skin and for those skin tones to be represented in all advertising for the products. People of Color® is nail polish for "People of Color and those who live in color."
