The Gel Bottle celebrates nail art inspired by Black culture

The Gel Bottle has partnered with Somerset House to host a pop-up nail bar as part of The Missing Thread exhibition during Black History Month. 

The exhibition explores the untold stories of Black British fashion, culture and creativity from the 1970s to the present. 

“So many popular nail trends of today originated or gained prominence within Black communities. Eye-catching acrylics, statement stiletto nails, and other iconic styles. Black women have been at the helm of nail art's modern cultural resurgence,” say The Gel Bottle.

To celebrate the statement designs originating in the Black community, some of The Gel Bottle's Black nail techs will be appearing at the exhibition on selected dates to paint nail designs inspired by Black culture.

The Missing Thread exhibition runs until 7th January 2024 at Somerset House, London.
