Barbara Jordan


This is regular polish, not gel, but because its 10 free it can be sandwiched in gel.

This is our annual Valentines collection. If you’ve been with us a while, you’ll know I HATE valentines, so instead of the typical Valentine’s Day collection. We give a spotlight to incredible women that have been done wrong throughout literature, history, music, and/or current events.

So, this is our Valentine to them. I’m including a small write up of how they were done wrong, below the polish description. Feel free to skip it. There’s no quiz 😉


Barbara Jordan is a silver crackle polish with a rainbow of flash glitter. She is truly striking!!

Barbara Jordan was a southern black woman, who had an excellent academic record! Because of segregation, she could not attend The University of Texas at Austin and instead chose Texas Southern University, a historically black institution. During her university years she came out and fought for gay rights and civil rights. One of her classmates said she was always kicking up dust. Following graduation (magna cum laude in 1956), she attended Boston University Law School, where she was one of only two women—both African Americans from Houston—to graduate.

After law school she made the choice to run for office. She was not the kind of person the south put in office and so she lost twice running for the Texas House of Representatives, but the third time was the charm, she was elected in 1966 to the Texas Senate, becoming the first African-American state senator in Texas since 1883 and the first black woman to serve in that body. When Jordan ran for Congress, she won and became the first African American in the 20th century to be elected to Congress from the South.

As a congresswoman, and a scholar, Jordan used her speaking skills to fight for civil and human rights. She faced racism, misogyny and homophobia from congress, but she never let them stop her. She gave THE speech that was the rallying cry needed to impeach Nixon and she led the charge!

Once retired from politics Jordan went to The University of Texas at Austin to teach at the university that she herself could not attend. She kept fighting the establishment and became a tenured professor at the university and a very popular one at that.
