OOO Polish is the first and only brand of polish that created a unique color system to complement women of color skin tones and undertones. With over 65 hand blended colors to choose from, owner, Symantha Onyechi's mission is to prove Women of Color beauty options are no longer limited!
This idea was created a year ago, in 2016, for a line of polishes specifically catering to the many shades and undertones of Women of Color. A simple nail shop visit that turned awry and her love for trying unique color options brought about the creation of OOO Polish. Just like your favorite shade of eye shadow, foundations, blush, and other make up products, nail polish colors matter for Women of Color. Nail polish colors are not created universally, and after much research, Symantha concluded that many of the nail polish brands don't use Women of Color skin tones as a creative palette.
Unfortunately, for Women of Color, finding beauty products that match our skin tones and our varying undertones is difficult. We have to be ready for trial and error time and time again. When we do find the right products we are extremely limited to and rely heavily on those few products to keep us beautiful. Symantha believes representation matters, and wanted to create unique out-of-the-box colors while challenge the idea that Women of Color have limited options for beauty.
Symantha created OOO Polish with the intent to make all Women of Color feel more confident in experimenting with a variety of nail polish colors as well as educate buyers with a little bit of knowledge of the many African cultures that existed and thrived on the continent.
