Over the last few years, we’ve seen more and more men begin to express themselves through hair, beauty and nails. Adding fun designs and colors to your look is no longer reserved for just one gender—anyone can get in on the fun! And with celebs like Harry Styles and ASAP Rocky popularizing the trend, it’s no wonder nail art has taken over the men’s grooming space.
