Our Mea Kanu (Plant) Collection is inspired by the beautiful plants that make up Hawaiʻi's landscape. Indigenous plants, those brought by our ancestors, or those more newly introduced but still familiar all serve as a muse for our nails.  One of the many beautiful things about our ʻōlelo mākuahine (mother tongue) is the depth of even the simplest of words. Multiple meanings allows for nuance and multiple poetic interpretations. The word "lau" means leaf, but it also (amongst other things) means design. This lau (design) is made up of multiple lau (leaves) that are important to kānaka maoli for food, medicine, lei & more: Lauaʻe, Kalo, ʻUlu, ʻUala, ʻAwa and Hōʻiʻo.

Get a quick and long lasting ʻāina-ful manicure with these gel nail strips. Unlike typical nail strips, you cure these after application for a manicure that lasts 3-4 weeks when applied correctly.

We do our best to photograph the nail strips to capture the true color, but color online may vary slightly from actual color. Nonetheless, the best representation of the nail colors are the photos of the actual strips on our site (sticker on the box is not an accurate color representation). To get the best idea of the true color, focus on the photos of the actual strips. Mahalo!
