We celebrate bad-ass chicks who build empires by breaking nails. We try new things. We take little risks to find what makes us happy. And we don’t let setbacks, scrapes or imperfections stop us in our tracks. We play with our makeup, our style, our whims and identities, and even though we might wipe out or look less than graceful from time to time, we have a lot of FUN along the way.
