PSA: nail art isn’t just for girls – in fact, no part of beauty is. Sure, it’s traditionally seen as ‘feminine’, but Yorkie bars were traditionally seen as masculine and we all know that’s ridiculous. Beauty is self-care and shouldn’t be bound to any gender – besides, more and more people are challenging gender stereotypes.
A manicure doesn’t have to be a big deal – or mean bright, colourful nails – it can just be basic grooming. Think of it like your haircut. An express manicure simply involves filing and buffing nails and caring for the cuticle. It can also be a legitimate form of self-expression, though. Nail art and painted nails don’t have to be feminine – just ask these guys.
