About Us


Born Noir is a mission-driven cosmetic company celebrating Blackness and genderless beauty. Our founder, Keesha Clark, started Born Noir at the height of the pandemic and global social uprisings in 2020. 

Born Noir, meaning Born Black, is a response to the pervasive and worldwide issue of anti-Blackness. We choose to celebrate people for being radical, revolutionary and game-changing — exactly themselves. From our media images to our staffing selections, we will always intentionally uplift people from underrepresented and marginalized communities.

Most importantly, we use our platform to encourage self care and nail care for people of all ages, cultures, and genders. Representation matters. So, Born Noir is here!


Born Noir offers safe, eco-friendly, and high-quality products which include hand-designed press-on nails, vegan nail polish, and self care essentials. 

Our hand-designed press-on nails reign supreme as our bestsellers! Our clients love this nail enhancement technique that is reliable, reusable, and safe for their natural nail. AND our clients get to customize their design for special occasions or everyday wear, if they so choose!


Born Noir champions justice, equity, and respect for all. Furthermore, we believe in putting your money where your mouth is. Since the beginning, we have donated up to 5% of every sale to organizations with a proven commitment to racial and gender justice, such as the ACLU and the Transgender Law Center. The organizations we support vary from law centers, to domestic violence organizations, to movements against police brutality. We intend to continue donating a portion of our profits to organizations which help effect change for marginalized communities.
