There are many kōwā (channels) that seperate the Hawaiian islands and are known for paddling races and rough seas: ʻAlenuihāhā, ʻAlalākeiki, Kealaikahiki, ʻAuʻau, Pailolo, Kalohi, Kaiwi, Kaieiewaho and Kaulakahi. The royal blue of this nail is like the channels that seperate each island, but kōwā also means to separate or divide two things. This nail has a kōwā between the blue and clear, while also adding a splash of gold for a luxe feel.

*For more on each channel and where they are located, search each channel name on Wehewehe Wikiwiki:

I chose the name Iwi for this business because not only were these nails inspired by various iwi (shells, antlers[kiwi], coconut shells & more) but these nails also take on an iwi like quality when you cure them. Koʻu iwi, my bones, are both figuratively and literally at the core of who I am, as iwi are integral to many living things around us. The Iwi Core Collection are our solids and plain colors. These ʻāina inspired colors will be restocked periodically, so you can count on these basics to be around!

We do our best to photograph the nail strips to capture the true color, but color online may vary slightly from actual color. Nonetheless, the best representation of the nail colors are the photos of the actual strips on our site (sticker on the box is not an accurate color representation). To get the best idea of the true color, focus on the photos of the actual strips. Mahalo!

Nice and flexible to shape to your nail bed. Lasted as long as expected considering how rough I am on my nails. Great quality and wonderful designs!
