Forget painting on Jaded Love and Lemonade Stand by Your Man nail color. And don't even think about wearing Jizz nail paint by the makers of Dick Weed. Ewww. Hell no! How about some empowerment, ladies!

Just because we find it nice to put some lovely color on our nails from time to time doesn't mean we have to patronize our strong and happy womanhood with offensive nail polish names like I'm Not Really a Whore. Just stop it.

Become a nail color feminist today. That's right. Give the finger (painted in a pretty pro-woman color) to misogynistic nail color names.

To get you started, we've picked out 19 empowering nail polish color names.
