    It’s a Thursday afternoon, and you’ve just finished work. You can’t contain your excitement that the weekend is here, and you want to do something to celebrate and treat yourself; what comes to mind? To us, one of the ultimate self-care activities is nail care. There is a misconception that only women get their nails done, but it’s 2022, so let’s start being a bit progressive and leave the toxic masculinity behind! Besides, some men who are keen on taking good care of their overall hygiene get regular manicures and pedicures, setting a good example for anyone who needs that push against societal norms. 

    Another thing you will probably find in any nail salon is a lash extension services, which are essentially semi-permanent lashes that are placed on top of your natural lashes and give you a mascara finish.
