May Day in Hawai'i

May Day in Hawai'i

Here in Hawai'i, May Day is Lei Day, a celebration of the aloha spirit and an homage to the iconic Hawaiian flower lei (garland or wreath.) Every year on May 1st, thousands of locals create and exchange lei, and social festivities are held throughout the state to celebrate.

While the first official Lei Day was celebrated in 1929, lei making is an ancient Hawaiian art form. Lei were created as special gifts; great care was taken in finding specific materials and artfully handcrafting each lei. When exchanging lei, it is said that the mana (spirit) of the lei maker passes to the lei recipient, adding a depth of meaning to these beautiful flowery necklaces.

Happy May Day from Hawai'i! :)

Kapa Nui Reviews

"The best nail polish ever!" ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"I discovered Kapa Nui polish while searching for a safer alternative to conventional polish. I have severe allergic reactions to regular polish - my eyes swell shut and I get hives all over my hands. I had tried several "safer" 5-free, 7-free polishes, but I always got the same allergic reaction. Kapa Nui was my last resort. I made a promise to myself that if it didn't work, I was just going to be done painting my nails. When I painted my nails for the 1st time with Kapa Nui, I expected to wake up with my swollen face...but I woke up and was completely fine. I wanted to be sure before leaving this review, so I painted my nails 2 more times...I was still fine every time. I'm sorry for the longest review ever, but I want everyone to know that not only are these polishes beautiful, but they are also so much safer and better than other polishes! " - Olivia
