In honor of Women's History Month, we'll be getting the inside scoop on beauty tips, career advice, and secret passions of PhenomeNAIL women doing incredible things.


Meet one of our favorite fashionista’s, Kia Davidson of Kia is a fashion enthusiast and entrepreneur. This PhenomeNAIL woman is best known for her fabulous DIY tutorials, and her undeniable sense of style. Check out our Q&A below.

Q: In a nutshell, tell us what you do and how you got started in the DIY world.

A: I’m a digital content creator, social media influencer, & brand ambassador - pretty much brands/companies hire me to promote their brand, product, or service to my audience. 

I’ve always been creative and really resourceful growing up but it wasn’t until I was a broke college student/broke recent grad that I really started to get into DIY. Simply put, I love fashion but I couldn’t always afford to go shopping so I learned how to create the clothes I wanted. “Lack of...” really breeds creativity. Instead of succumbing to circumstances you use it as motivation; I try to apply this logic to all aspects of my life. 

Q: Do you have a favorite quote or motto that you live by?

A: “I do this for the culture.”

Everything I do is for the betterment of the culture. I live to empower, inspire, & create a world where women, especially black women learn to love themselves, breakdown traditional standards of beauty and embrace their true self.

Q: What is your greatest strength?

A: Teaching. I love knowledge but I love sharing it more. The gift of knowledge is priceless.

Q:  What is one thing you wish you knew when you were younger?

A: I did a bunch of unnecessary stuff growing up, I really wish I would have just focused on one thing and excelled at that. Choosing a passion early and focusing all your energy into achieving it is key; I probably wouldn’t have all this student loan debt from a degree that I might never use if I did that.  

Q: What item in your closet do you wear the most?

A: Currently obsessing over patent leather ankle boots, I have 3 pairs I keep in rotation.

Q: What is your must-do beauty routine?

A: Eyebrows must be fleeky; they really frame your face.

Q: What is the best advice you've ever been given?

A: “Travel more” You should.
